My first new car...lasted 12 years
By MC_Jeep on


1993 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


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).
