1996 Jeep Cherokee SE 4dr SUV 4WD


I LOVE my 1996 Jeep SE Cherokee! I bought it new in 1996, been driving it ever since. Just today (10 years and 87,000 miles later) had to bring it to the dealer with a problem (no heat, but overheating). It's a nice compact 4-wheel drive that has given me no real problems for the past 10 years. Good for snow and good for city driving and parking. Pulled a boat 2,000 miles to and from Florida, hauled dogs and dry cleaning. I love it! I even love its '96 boxy design. Downside: back seat is small & the cup holders worthless, occasionally overheats a bit in the summer if I'm sitting in rush hour traffic.

Best Features

4-wheel drive on the fly, nice size (not a gigantic SUV), easy to park and drive on narrow city streets. Love the hatch back (great for tailgating) and the "window shade cover" I bought when I first got it to provide privacy for the back.

Worst Features

Bring it back! Better cup holders. A little more leg room in the back seat would be nice.
