2001 Jeep Cherokee Classic 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
Purchase my jeep used with 70k miles in 2004. It now has 122k miles and drives and runs no different than the day I bought it. Only maintenance I have done is change oil, change transmission fluid(once), replace rear shocks (once), and a brake job (once). Jeep has plenty of power and will easily do 100mph. It is durable and handles great in the snow. It can go offroad anywhere 98% of people would need / want to go. I wish it were a little quieter on the road and go better gas mileage (but you can't avoid the fact that it is a box on wheels and about as non-aerodynamical as a car could be).
Torque and acceleration of the 4.0L motor. Reliable 4wd system.
Vehicle not made anymore. Does well for a 10 year old SUV.
