1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Cherokee's have always been a tough,
reliable 4WD. After owning one for
years and 120K miles, I agree.
Luxurious, no. Many vehicles are more
comfortable. Small, nimble, simple
vehicles, yes. Very durable too. One
turn signal switch has been replaced.
All other items, tires, brakes, oil,
etc., were maintenance items. This is a
vehicle that has seen many offroad
miles in the Southwestern deserts, and
it seems to be just breaking in.
Offroad, it will leave posuer 4x4's
(Xterra, etc) behind, including very
expensive ones.
The 4.0L engine has more in common with
a tractor, but they'll run past 300K
with basic shadetree mechanic skills. A
simple scan of the used Cherokees bears
this out. A+

Best Features

4x4 ability. Durability and longevity. Nimble and agile.
