It was my dream car, but....
By meropidae on


1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


After two years, the
Jeep reputation reared its ugly head.
The AC is continually broken. The cd
player and sunroof are dead. The roof
lining is sagging, the windows leak.
It rattles and chirps (and not only off-
road). The automatic transmission has
very bad days. The side bumper strips
are falling off. And, mysteriously, the
front driver's side door has begun to
rub against the nose-side panel, slowly
denting it inward. I adore it...but
will soon face the fact that
I'm pouring money into a bottomless
pit. (sigh....)

Best Features

That classic exterior. Looks great dirty (as a Jeep should). Cargo space. Available toys (luxury in a rugged vehicle).

Worst Features

Simply not as durable as it should be. Shame on Jeep, for allowing such a reputation to be proved true.
