1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


This Jeep has been the most reliable auto I could imagine. I had to replace the water pump a couple times, the radiator, and have the intake cleaned once. Other than that, we are talking regular maintenance, and 219,000 miles later she still roars to life every morning. I have driven her on the beach, in the snow, out of holes (my fault), and every time, the Jeep has been up to the task. I say all of this and remind the reader that the Jeep 15 years ago is not the Jeep today. I think simplicity, quality mechanics and minimal electronics is the way to have an auto you can keep for many years.

Best Features

4 wheel drive and the inline six cylinder engine.

Worst Features

Jeep should have stayed away from marketing "comfortable" cars and stuck to making tough reliable machines.
