Vehicle

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

Review

This is the second Cherokee I've owned. The first was an '87 that lasted 250k and would've gone longer had I not gotten water in the engine. For this reason, I decided to get a new one in 2000 (2001 model) and have not regretted it. The inline, cast iron, 6 cylinder engine will last a lifetime! Things to look for; The rear main oil seal will leak at some point (both of mine happened around 100k miles), it's a gas guzzler, the valve cover will leak at some point (easy/cheap DIY), though my 2001 has yet to do this (140k), and the front rotors warp easily. I replaced my rotors with cross-drilled rotors that last longer, stop faster and cost less than OEM. very reliable vehicle!

Favorite Features

the engine, the 5-spd manual tranny, 4wd system

Suggested Improvements

Better front brakes- the OEM disc warp easily and can't handle the weight of the vehicle. I purchased after-market cross-drilled rotors and it solved the problem for less money.
