1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


Out grew the Jeep with four kids, just bought a truck. With the 4.0L HO engine and the 5 speed manual this car was just plain fun and had more than enough power because it is light with the unibody construction. Towed a 25 foot boat that weighed 5,000 lbs and it did okay ... plenty of power, just a little short for the length of the boat. Very reliable and what parts I did replace were reasonably priced. City mileage was okay at about 12.5 - 13.5 mpg, but highway mileage was good at about 21.5 mpg. Engine still runs very strong and the transmission hasn't missed a beat. Parts replaced: clutch at about 85,000 miles, exhaust at about 105,000 miles, water pump ($45!) at 110,000 miles.

Best Features

Engine is AWESOME! Can't beat straight sixes. 5 Speed manual is AWESOME! Highway mileage is very good. Utility is very good, goes anywhere with little fuss. It has real metal bumpers and not that expensive plastic junk. Doesn't rust. Fun to drive with the 5 speed. Good towing ability.

Worst Features

Bring it back to the Jeep lineup! A little bigger on the inside would have been nice. Can't think of anything else and I am sorry to have the sell it.
