2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I bought my car new in 2001 (Jeep Cherokee Sport). I still LOVE the look of the exterior and it's great in the snow. I thought I would keep it forever for that reason. However, it is 4 years old now and we have had to bring it in 4 times in the past 9 months to get it fixed, totaling over $2500. The AC compressor blew out and had to be replaced. The brakes have already had to be replaced several times and the engine light seems like it's always on regardless of how many times we've brought it in. I'm really disappointed but I think we have to sell it now because we simply can't afford it anymore. If you take into account our repair bills over the past year, our monthly payment has been >$600/month ...ugh!
Exterior; great in the snow as long as the tires aren't worn.
