2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Owned for one year. Bought with 19,000
miles - just crossed 30,000. Absolutely
the best vehicle I have ever owned.
Solid as a rock, great off-road and in
the snow. Only issues are the lack of a
left foot rest (during long drives this
can be a problem) and gas mileage in
stop and go traffic. But it is the last
of the best that Jeep has ever made.
Ending production of the XJ will lose
loyal customers as Daimler-Chrysler
migrates toward independent front
suspensions across the board. I fully
expect that this vehicle will last me
for over 200,000 miles. Many XJ owners
will attest to the ease with which this
happens if you just change the oil and
do the maintenance.
Classic style, solid drive train, true SUV.
If they ever bring it back - left foot
rest for the driver, better back seat,
rear mounted spare tire.
