1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4dr SUV


This is the second Jeep 4.0 motor vehicle that I have owned. This version is the high output version (approximately 190 hp). I bought this used and specifically wanted the "sport" version for its increased off-road ability. These small Cherokees are very reliable. A bit snug inside - the rear seat isn't made for adult Americans. Gas mileage is about 16 combined which isn't bad for a 4x4 with a/c and auto trans. Rides too stiff for the wife. The price you pay for the "sport" suspension. No cruise control either.

Best Features

Great motor, o.k. transmission, everything works fine.

Worst Features

Brakes could be better, needs cruise control, should have stretched the body one foot to allow for better rear seat legroom.
