Review of the 2000 Jeep Cherokee

  • There are two ways of looking at the Jeep Cherokee: a classic with a loyal following or an aged warhorse that's past its prime. We'll let you decide.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    New, more powerful engine, affordable, off-road prowess.

  • Cons

    Same boxy style, small rear seat, difficult entry/exit.

  • What's New for 2000

    The 2000 Cherokee scores the '99 Grand Cherokee's redesigned 4.0-liter PowerTech inline six in addition to a new five-speed manual transmission. The Limited model sports bright chrome accents, including the front grille, the headlamp surrounds, the side graphics, the rear license-plate brow and the 16-inch wheels.

You know you're getting there

Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

I have had this vehicle for about 15,000 miles, and I have been very happy with it. It is as capable off road as off, and there are thousands of modifications for these vehicles. Whether you want to hit the trails or brave New England winters, these are some of the best vehicles for the money. The Cherokee is also one of the safest, toughest vehicles on the road.




Bulletproof- buy again in a

Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

First new in 2000-absolutely bulletproof. Very practical w/ generous cargo space. tow hitch bike rack & ski roof rack. Easily handles class IV roads w/ plenty of gear, blasted through 1ft+ snow & rain deluges. Pulled a few stumps out & a stuck car. Fun at drive in with the hatch lid open to the screen. Knuckleheads t-boned it from both sides of the front wheel wells, but kept rolling. Req’d minor repair work, but takes a punch. Decent mpg (~20 mpg) for utility. Great acceleration. Can be bumpy at times, but swallows potholes w/o problems. No major problems beyond routine maintenance. Quality keeps up against any other domestic or import. Jeep, why did you ever stop making these?




Great for a jeep

Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

I bought my previously leased Limited and have put about 60,000k on it since 2003. It's a very reliable car, but even fully loaded it's becoming a relic very quickly. I will probably run this thing to 300k just to see if I can(they say the I-6 is rated for 300k), but my wife just bought an '08 CR-V and she has about 50 more options on her vehicle than mine. Plus her v-4 engine feels more powerful than my I-6. I love the 4 wheel drive, it handles great in snow here in Colorado. The only problem is the back seat is not comfortable, and even fully loaded, there aren't a whole lot of amenities on this car. For a Cherokee though it's the best you can get, unless you want to pay 40k for a Grand.




Two years - still goes!

Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

In the two years I have owned my Cherokee, I've logged 20k on a Jeep i bought with 33k. This Jeep has been a workhorse if I've ever seen one. Yeah, a few small issues have popped up; oil pressure gauge, new shocks, tires, and the usual maintenance -- but aside from that, this truck keeps going. I'm averaging 19 mpg with a combination of 75% highway and 25% city. I needed a reliable vehicle that would endure the beating that roads around the NYC area would throw at it. The Jeep fit the bill. It's great in the snow, the A/C handles the heat well, and long trips with my Cherokee are a pleasure




Great ride!

Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

I've had my Cherokee for almost 2 years and have not had a problem with it. I bought mine used with 34K and now have almost 70K and it runs like a charm. Within a year I had to put new tires and shocks. Aside from that, I have not had any issues. Its fast, handles rather well, gets prety good gas milage and isj ust a workhorse.




Takes a licking and keeps

Vehicle: 2000 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

Had her for 2 years. Picked it up used with 27K. Have only had 1 major repair bill for major 4WD repairs, something about induction. The car has pick-up on the highway (up to 85/90 mph). Took it up to Vermont all winter to hit the mountains, I only had trouble on ice/snow once or twice during a white out. I love it. Reliable to the bone.
