1990 Jeep Cherokee 4dr SUV 4WD


This is actually a 1987 AMC Jeep, but
review selections don't go back that
far. I have been looking at SUV reviews
for my daughter and was shocked at the
low milage ratings. I have always
gotten between 23-26 MPG/HWY on this
manual transmission 4 liter Cherokee.
The past 6 months it has been 27 mpg,
perhaps due to new oversize 235-75-R15
tires, even with 168000 miles on the
engine. I remember when we ordered it
new, the salesman seemed surprised at
the non-standard rear end, with a
comment of "Well, you should get good
milage." Perhaps that is the cause of
a sluggishness I noted from the
beginning, like riding a bike uphill in

Best Features

Good milage/doesn't go out of style, until now, perhaps since I just read on this site that it has been replaced by the Liberty?

Worst Features

If you have discontinued the basic good old Cherokee, bring it back, & put that non-standard rear end in to all basic models to improve gas milage, if that is indeed what made the difference in mine. Give the hotrodders an option for the "better performance" lower milage rearends.
