2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

When we bought it, I had the OEM oil changed to Mobil One. Then I had the transmission and differential changed to Mobil One at 25,000 miles. As near as I can remember, it runs just like the day I drove it off the lot, which is a day I have not regretted so far. To date, the only "major" issue I have had was a failure of the crankshaft and camshaft sensors to the tune of $400. The mechanic seems to have taken me some, as the camshaft sensor was obviously broken but the chances of both failing at once are infinitesimal. Otherwise it has been good to us. Strong, quick, and reliable, it inspires confidence in any traffic, weather or road condition, and looks great doing it.


Best Features

See above. Also, Jeep really hit on a classic body design with the Cherokee. Notice how all of the others try to incorporate, if not out right copy the Cherokee's handsome understatement.


Worst Features

The back seat can be brutal on long trips, but little chance that Jeep will fix it since the Cherokee has been discontinued. The engine compartment gets incredibly hot and needs better air flow. I'm tempted to install a small hood scoop of some sort if I can find one.

2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Me and my husband got this Jeep after I drove on of his buddy's jeeps. I like his and wanted one. This Jeep has been good to us. Just the normal repairs. We bought it used with 43,000 miles. Good power, goes in snow and mud. I would like to get a brand new one if I could. We have 105,000 miles and it still is going strong.

Review

bought this in '05 with 40K on it in showroom new shape , added air raid cold air induction & t/b spacer to up horsepower and save gas (when i could keep from gunning it..WOW) always wanted one and when i finally got it just couldn't get enough. Most people don't get the chance to put a daily driver 4wd to the test but I made sure i did and this vehicle took everything from 3 ft snow drifts to 2ft deep flooded areas like a champ. Make sure you keep up the maintenance and you'll be perfect. Oh and you gotta love that Jeep finally changed the liberty for '08 to look like a modern Cherokee, guess they do listen ;o)


Best Features

Everything!!!


Worst Features

Aftermarket -cold air induction, performance t/b spacer, heavy duty front pads and look into a hypertech iii for this ..You'll get unreal towing and power and actually get almost 30 mph highway (if you can resist the urge to launch this puppy!!!!!

Plain Jane style yet very sporty.

2001 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've had my Jeep now for about a year and I've put on about 20k miles on it. Bought it at 71k miles, it's got 91k on it now. I had to replace the radiator and the TPS sensor. Radiator was cracked before I bought it evidently due to all of the stop leak in it when I took it out. Other than that, this thing has been a dream. The family loves it, it's very roomy, reliable, and so comfortable to drive. For not being a full-size vehicle, you feel like you are in command of the road and plus you aren't taken over by the thing either like a full-size. It laughs at any bad weather condition too. I will be keeping this Jeep for a very long time.


Best Features

It's gorgeous when it is clean and gorgeous when it's caked in mud! The power behind the 4.0L is awesome even with the A/C on. The drivetrain all together is bulletproof too. I have the basic cloth seats and they are like riding on pillows everyday.


Worst Features

Put gauges in these things, not dummy lights!
