Best Bang For Your Buck In A Used Suv — They may not look like much, but the Cherokee has a personality of its own that grows on you the more you drive it. It has decent power, handling, and brakes, and is very reliable. I love driving mine, even though it's a beater with over 200k on the clock.

Cons

gas mileage

The 94 Cherokee — Performance- a lot of torque, most of the time good braking, and with a good set of tires it has good handling Build Quality-all you gotta do is throw a lift on it and it will be a monster Appearance-nice on the inside with or without carpet, and exterior has common rust under the doors Cost of Ownership-not very good gas mileage but totally worth it if you can find places to play around at Fun Factor-by far my favorite vehicle i have

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

My 4.0L has over 250k and it doesn't burn any oil. Runs like a champ and she only breaks down in my driveway. If you keep up on your maintenance that motor will run forever.

Cons

Automatic tranny is exspensive to have rebuilt. The stock gear ratio in my rearend is a 4.10. Drivers top door hinge is coming apart from the body. There isa hinge kit to repair that issue but I welded it for now.You have to take the head of to replace the lifters. I wish it was designed like the 4.9L. w/access covers on block.

Old Reliable — MyJeep Cherokee has been one of my best vehicles I have ever owned. I've owned around 40 vehicles in my lifetime. I owned 2 Cherokee's and both of them are still running today. My 87 was a 4dr w/4wd. It was reaching the 300k range and didn't miss a beat when I sold it. The thing I hated about both of them was the rear hatch. They started to leak and new seal didn't help. They were garage kept so I really didn't look into it further. I believe they both use the nissan pathfinder overdrive transmissions. I don't care for the ignition coil that it uses. I've replaced it twice. Think I'll rewire it so I can use a MSD blaster 2 coil that should kill two birds w/one stone.

Pros

Easiest car to drive, EVER

Cons

No luxury whatsoever, lots of NVH

45

Good, All-around Car — Cheap, easy to drive, great for learning. It has a little bit of get-up-and-go when you hit the gas, and the 4 wheel drive system makes it so you can go just about anywhere. Unfortunately, the car has a mediocre ride and wind noise as bad as my motorcycle! It's no luxury car, but I've made long trips in it without much fuss. (It tows pretty well, too). It hasn't really had much problems mechanically aside from an oil leak and a weak starter (after 100,000+ miles). Body parts have been an issue, though... front bumper got pretty rusty, and the black plastic side moldings have been falling off.

front end out of line. milage. tires. trim (gray is boring)

Nice Ride. Good Handling, Cop Jeep. Many Bonuses Under The Hood. 2 Antenas — manual transmission, good for hopping out of the lights. not much more to say. got souped up a bit for law enforcement business.

Spider Jeep — All and all I love this car it's run nicely for me except an old hose or two but upkeep is easy and she would be the best car ever if she wasn't always so thirsty.but this car gets you where you need to go and it might not be lightening fast but you will get there!

Pros

The fact it taught me how to work on a car

Cons

The offroading was really hard on the frame.

Too Bad They Switched This Great Suv To That Pathetic Liberty — It was my offroad truck. Had 33" tires, locker, winch, bumpers, skidplates, rock rails and she went everywhere. It was a great truck, loved the fact I could go to pick and pull and get whatever I needed. The 4L I6 was...well, legendary, it was great and powerful.

Pros

It's got great towing capability without being terrible on gas, and lots of cargo room inside.

Cons

Unibody construction.

I Loke It. — I hate that the doors are welded on. Now I can't use the driver side because the hinge is broken, and the passenger side is sagging. But for suck an inexpensive ride, it's great. And very safe and sturdy overall.
