1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Owned since new, now has ~50K, runs
better than ever. Great to drive with
V6, stick, and lower weight than most
SUVs. Strongly recommend stick-like to
downshift into turns to manage SUV-roll
risk while keeping up power. And it
helps with mileage (18-20MPG). Only
maintenance has been oil chgs & tires
once. No rust/exterior problems,
though it has been garaged mostly.
Would get 4DR - trick to get in/out of
backseat. Still not sure 4DR that
would make it a family SUV-ride is
pretty bumpy for munchkins in car
seats. Echo all comments about 4WD &
snow; with locking 4WD (not AWD with
differentials) you get great power &

Best Features

V6+stick+low weight=great to drive; lots of space for cargo with or w/o seat folded down; pretty comfortable seats up front

Worst Features

Bring it back!! Awkward rear entry on 2 door; could use more interior storage. Don't make the ride bland like most SUVs - it is what is, love it or hate it
