1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


It's been 4 years since new, it had some good times, had alot of bad. At about 20k mile, driveshaft fell off resulting in two weeks in the shop. At about 50k miles, speedometer gained a mine of its own, spent 3 days in the shop and $300 for a new computer. Currently and for the third time, oil pressure gauge is not functioning correctly. Will be visiting the dealership for the 7th time in 6 months. Jeep gets about 14 mpg, very poor. Currently, the Jeep is at 57k miles. The 4.0L does the job well. Command- Trac 4WD is poor on the streets but great off-roading and deep snow. Trak- lok differential offers excellent traction in 2WD.

Best Features

Can really take a beating off-road. 4.0L engine offers decent acceleration at low speeds when needed. Easy to manuever into small spaces and parking lots. Handles well for a SUV that can really off-road. Low-range is great for those really sticky situations.

Worst Features

My Jeep cannot accomodate 30" tires unless I get a lift, what is up with that. All Jeeps should come standard with 30" tires to begin with. The car is not reliable and I suggest Chrysler to take some tips from Japan in electronics.
