I had a Jeep Comanche as my first car. Despite the fact it had obviously been badly cared for before I bought it, it was fairly reliable. I never had any problems with engine or transmission, but it consistently leaked power steering fluid despite multiple attempts to repair it. I really liked the power of the I6 4 liter engine; I was also impressed with the durability. When I swerved to miss a deer and went through a small (12 inch diameter) tree, the frame was undamaged (although the grill and bumper were destroyed) and the truck was fully drivable after I replaced the headlights. It lasted until the clutch slave cylinder went out, which requires the removal of the engine to replace.
Clutch slave cylinder is too difficult to replace.
