The Original SUV...Scrap The Liberty!!!
By NateW on


1999 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


In just over two years of ownership and over 100k miles, one word sums it up, RELIABLE. Engine has always averaged 19.1 mpg according to the trip computer. Not bad for a big 6 cyl. and a vehicle with the aerodynamics of a brick, but hey, it's all part of the charm!! Other than oil changes, 1 set of tires, 1 brake job, and replacing the transfer case at 171,000 miles this thing starts and goes every day without fail. It's Simple Design makes for a very dependable AND easy to maintain vehicle even for the novice mechanic.

Best Features

Select-Trac 4wd option-A Must! Deep Tinted glass keeps the leather cool in those summer months. Strong Factory CD/cass. audio system. Tons of Cargo space too, especially with the rear seat folded down. Simple yet Classic looks. Nice, Durable Paint.

Worst Features

Hood Release mechanism (Not unlike a Rube Goldberg Contraption) if not regularly lubricated it will cease and you WILL rip the release handle from the cable while trying to pop the hood. Brakes lock easily when cold and moisture-goes away quickly from driving though.
