2000 Jeep Cherokee SUV Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Bought new in '00, this thing has needed NOTHING! I don't count wear items such as brakes, tires, batteries, etc. like many reviewers do. I decided to write a review because it just turned 200,000 miles today. No leaks, no burning oil, runs the same as new. The 4.0 is astounding. If you use a K&N air filter and Mobil 1 10w-30 synthetic oil, it'll get about 28 MPG on the highway. That's at 75 MPH with 3 people and luggage using 87 octane (regular) fuel! The ride is much improved with the Dunlop RVXT 235 75 15 tires instead of the horrible stock Goodyears. The last set of Dunlops went over 60K with even wear. I have ALL the power options and ALL work with no problems. It'll do about anything!


Best Features

Smooth 4 speed auto. Simplicity, reliability, power, capability, respect from other drivers, police, and mechanics, Easy to maintain and work on, TONS of aftermarket and MOPAR accessories/parts, EVERYTHING!


Worst Features

Bring it back! Its revised version is still available in other countries. Clearly many people want it back here in the U.S. I'm buying a used one this week as a 2nd vehicle. I'd buy a new one if I could. Do you hear that DaimlerChrysler?

Review

This is a very reliable vehicle. Only complaint I have is a noisy exhaust because of vibration from hardened rubber rings in between pipes. It doesn't ride like a Caddy but if you really need to get there it will take you there though sunshine pouring in the moonroof or plowing though a foot of snow! No breakdown or problems yet as of 85,000 miles.


Best Features

It won't break you to buy one and then to keep it. Lots of power from the mighty 4.0. Looks good on the street and it's mean in the woods!


Worst Features

Needs more room inside - example, head space!

2000 Jeep Cherokee SUV Classic 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I bought my Jeep used, paid book for it. Beautiful exterior/interior fully loaded minus sunroof. The following is a list of noted discrepancies or issues I've had by order of occurrence. 1. Garage door programmable buttons - are for looks only, at least mine can't be programmed. 2. The fuel gauge works from 3/4 tank and below only, when I fill it up, once the gauge hits 3/4 it immediately drops to Empty (the fuel light comes on too) 3. Rotors, pads, alternator (all replaced, and all expensive compared to other makes/models) 4. Replaced CAM SHAFT position sensor (idled rough, and kept jolting and dying) 5. ABS/Brake lights came on, Speedo went crazy, the engine died. It's still broke. SIGH


Best Features

I love the exterior look, The 8-way power seats are nice. I like the layout of the dash, and accessories. It's very comfortable and the back seats fold down great for rear cargo. When you step out of a JEEP (that runs) you feel good about it.


Worst Features

Use better manufacturing. Start with brakes: pads/rotors/calipers, then better window door lock regulators. The PCM is so tied in with everything that when one component stops talks the whole body goes crazy, and just quits! This poses a serious safety issue. Go back to what you did pre-1999.

Review

I've had my Jeep a little over a year now and it has been an excellent vehicle. It's got great styling and great reliability. I've only had to change the tires, oil and wiper blades since Iíve had it. If youíre looking for a reliable great looking SUV buy a Jeep Cherokee


Best Features

The styling and reliability.


Worst Features

Put this truck back into production and make a high performance version with the 415hp hemi.

2000 Jeep Cherokee SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

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


Best Features

Acceleration, gas mileage, comfort, durability, reliability, design.


Worst Features

This truck is no longer built, but rear headrests, along with a larger back seat would fit the bill - it seems the Liberty solved that. Standard fog lights on the Limited.
