1993 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

It is my trusty, rusting TANK with 170,000 mi and
still breathing, low maintenace. started burning a
little oil at about 140,000. 1- Water pump replaced
(vanes were
actually corroded OFF). Very reliable, only mystery
was a failed crankshaft position sensor that caused
much frustration (stalling) until diagnosed. Heats
up quickly these days in the warmer weather. Had
7/70,000 warranty ....rust started about 8/90,000.
Squeaky...replaced the CV joints. Keep front
suspension in check and tires in good repair to
avoid the "Death Wobble" (look it up).
Interior a little noisy. Backend a little light in
slippery conditions, easy to overpower turns with
the 4.0L.


Best Features

Reliable. Moved to many places and much cargo in this vehicle...fun to drive...would buy another (and in 12 years another) if they were still made...


Worst Features

Make some more of them... Watch for rust...check door hinges,door panels and underbody (seat pans).

Review

Bought this Cherokee in 99, my second.
The first went 237K before being
totaled, still ran great though. This
one has 158K, looks and runs great,
only significant problem in 5 years was
replacing the radiator. Decently
maintained these things will run
forever. Our 17 year old babysitter is
buying it, should get her through high
school AND college.


Best Features

Reliability, always liked the looks, even over the Grand Cherokee.


Worst Features

A little late for this but, back seat room is tighter than some others I've been in. Wife says "it rides like a truck", oh wait, it IS a truck.

Review

Got mine used with 45K miles; at 50K, I
had to put a new transmission in it.
Since then, it has been great... 150K
miles and it cranks right up. I have
to drive it like a maniac in the
Houston traffic, and it has held up
well. The inline 6 has great
acceleration, and its size allows easy
maneuverability. Also, have taken 10
or so trips from east Texas to middle
Georgia over the past seven years...
never had a problem.


Best Features

Classic look. Great acceleration. Size. Easy to maintain. Dependable.


Worst Features

Better cooling system - in hot weather while idle, temp gauge crawls up close to orange. Had radiator replaced at 75K miles, which helps a little. Better door hinges - had driver's side rewelded to the body at around 100K

Review

I have owned my 1993 Cherokee for 11
years now. I am the original owner and
bought it brand new. I have not had ANY
problems with this vehicle outside of
normal maintenance, wear, and tear. I
have replaced brakes and a clutch. I
used this vehicle to read electric
meters for five years in rural parts of
Florida. The only reason I am selling it
now is because my wife just bought a
Yukon and I am taking her Explorer.

The only comlaint I have is that the
airconditioning for this vehicle was not
adequate. I have the four cylinder model
and I guess the small compressor was due
to that set up.


Best Features

Space and gas mileage


Worst Features

Air Conditioning

This has been an exceptionally
dependable car....has always started...
used the 4WD several winters....would
buy another....and will do that!


Best Features

flexibility--hauled dog..hauled mother- in-law...hauled groceries.


Worst Features

Never used for long trips but probably would be uncomfortable due to small interior.
