Pros

Owned a Jeep Cherokee since 2003... now.. I will not own another type of SUV.  Pretty easy to work on, part finding is pretty easy (Amazon wow.. discounts).  Except in 2012 (Feb blizzard) I have NEVER been stuck.  Ran on pure water for a week, ran NO water pump for an hour in the dead of winter (2005 - 91 Cherokee - on my way to get it fixed).

Cons

If you don't keep it tuned and anything related to gas or air or exhaust or tires you will go from 17/18 MPG to 13 in a heart beat..

Jeep Owner For Life...period... — Style, durability, ease to work on, universal parts (pretty much), relagtivly inexpensive maintenance. Jeep Cherokee, from 80s - 2001 makes a perfect first car for a teen or daily driver (not like 150 miles round trip or anything)... BF Goodrich T/A tires are the way to go.

Good High School Car — I like that there is soo much low end torque that you can spin the tires if you hit the gas hard enough

Pros

This model was basically a truck with the bed covered & rear seats added. A totally  useful, sensible, efficient, utility vehicle with an engine as tough as nails. No engine work has had to be performed in over 140,000 miles. Just brakes, tires & shocks. Interior has held up very well with no splits in seats or dash even though the auto has always been driveway parked.

Cons

Rides like a truck. Wait a minute, it is a truck.

Reliable, Tough, Hard To Kill, Well Made To Last — Definitely a great buy & a dependable vehicle. They should still be making these available with a little tweaking for better gas mileage. Much tougher & solidly built than most autos on the road today. They were built to last, but wasn't this the idea?

My 1992 Jeep Cherokee — has a bunch of part replaced and is as good as new. Going to stoke it out to a 4.7 liter instead of the little 4.0 Has been in the shop very little just oil changed and some normal wear and tear. Gets around 13 or 14 mpg going to but the new throttle body for better flow for fuel and a little extra power. Has 2inch lift with 31s. All around the jeep is a great car dose very well off road and on road.

Pros

The Jeep Cherokee is all around an excellent vehicle, albeit small in today's market the Cherokee is always reliable, always capable and simple

Cons

back seat and cargo room are a little lacking, but mileage is good for a 4x4 box

Love The Cherokee Xj — I love the reliability, the way it drives and simplicity, the Jeep can go anywhere at anytime and always ask for more, if something breaks a little but of duct tape, a screwdriver and maybe some pliers will fix it. I love the Cherokee's, I have had 3 and loved everyone, I am only sad that Jeep does not build something nearly as good as the old Cherokee, I will never give my Cherokee up.

OIL LEAKS!

Lifted Jeep Cherokee — The best parts about this truck was how much fun it was, how easy it was to work on, and how cheep and readily available parts are. I found that about $500 bucks and you can have a pretty decent off road toy.

body rust and milage

If It Was Not For Michigan Salt I Would Still Be Driving This Jeep — very reliable rickidy vehicle that will take a beating over and over. cheap and easy to fix if anything ever brakes which it's not likely to. however the body will rust out from under you. i payed 650 for it with 130,00 miles put about 150.00 into it over 4 years and traded it in with 167,000 miles.
