Horrible in Wet Weather
By Should'veBought4x4 on


2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


I have the 2WD model and it's UNSAFE
on any kind of wet pavement - in snow,
rain, or even if someon's watering
their lawn. If the road is wet, I have
to be VERY careful about applying the
brakes or making a turn. It's too
light in the back and fishtails even
at very low speeds. Forget about
driving it in any kind of snow/ice. I
wish I'd bought the base 4x4 instead
of the 2WD Limited, but living in
Dallas I didn't think I'd use 4x4. It
also has an annoyingly LOUD humming /
vibration when idling in cold weather,
and it's very noisy on the road.

Best Features

Heated seats; great visibility all around; good clearance for parking in fields or going over speedbumps :)

Worst Features

Fix that swishy backend.
