Was Not For Me — Older Jeeps tend to have a rock solid build quality. Unfortunately I bought mine unaware it was in a serious accident and was plagued with problems from the day I bought it. Frame was out of line, misaligned body panels, engine burnt oil, head gasket went, electrics went, lots of squeaks and rattles. only owned for 4 weeks

Pros

It runs like a stripped ape, handles and corners well.  Will go anywhere it wants in 4 WD.

Cons

Electrical weakness in connections, especially blower motor, the relay, fan and switch.  Plastic dash is hard to repair and keep together after having had dash out a few times.

It Gets The Job Done Day And Day Out. — I like the handling of the vehicle. It has been reliable and durable. Starting to show its' age though with electrical problems cropping up. Have had to replace the HVAC speed switch, relay and harness two times in the past year. But, to have had the vehicle 15 years, bought it used, and to have spent less that $1,000.00 on it for parts, not bad overall. Plastic is just a weakness all vehicles have. Chrysler needs to improve the electrical connections and use bigger gauge wire on several of their circuits.

Pros

Cheap 4x4

Cons

Oil leaks everywhere!

85

Cheap 4x4 — I liked the jeep, but it had problems. Even with the problems, it ran! Simple little 4x4, no accessories, plastic floor liner. But it had a "fun" vibe to it. Got stuck very easy, maybe 270k miles on the diff wore it out?

Jeep Jeep — I bought mine for under four grand about 4 years ago. I have about 155,000 miles on it and it's still runs and looks great. Like the wrangler this jeep has a look that will last for years. The 4.0l inline six is also a very manageable and maintainable engine. I have had little issues with the car here and there but nothing major. In the bang-for-your-buck category this car has to be a top contender. I still get between 17-22 mpg depending on what kind of driving I'm doing. Even though it is 12 years old I'm VERY happy with my Cherokee. Things to look out for: - Front rotors warping - Neutral safety switch

Owner for 4 years, 2 months

Miles Driven per Year:16,000

It's A Jeep Thing — It's a legendary brand with some very good things about it, but at the same time, you can't help but shake the feeling that if it wasn't for some dumb Chrysler design shortcuts it could have been a perfect truck. First the best parts about it: it has a strong, durable, reliable, and smooth Engine (I have had both the 4.0 Inline 6, and the Meaty 5.2 V8). Those two engines are just about impossible to kill, and provide ample power. This shouldn't be confused with speed, these engines are tuned almost exclusively for torque. But what really hinders the potential is a completely dumb transmission gearing. For some reason Chrysler decided to gear this car like bus. It's geared very low (especially the 5.2) which is good for towing and off-road, but terrible for acceleration, fuel economy and noise. Driving 70MPH baseline weight in my 5.2 limited and it's ruining 2500rpm with overdrive on! A very dumb design flaw. It is one of the toughest SUV's that exist. There are things that have been done with my jeeps that would demolish most other SUV's, and it didn't even slow it down. I once had the driver's front wheel break off (it was the tire shop's mistake) while going 80MPH, and I never lost control. Other then some cosmetic damage and some sheared studs on that wheel, nothing else was wrong with the truck (steering, engine, suspension). Numerous drops into ditches, ruing over curbs to name a few other abuses. The truck is basically a steel box, and will protect you quite well in an accident. It's un-moded off road capabilities is very good (thanks to it being heavy, with a strong engine, and a short wheelbase). The torque happy engine provides plenty of power to the good limited slip 4WD. Unfortunately the 5.2 comes with the full time T-Case, that has a viscous coupler (4WD torque allocator) that is almost guaranteed to fail (the 4.0 selectable case is solid). It gives a very smooth ride with full independent spring suspension, and with a very modern disc brakes (very ahead of it's time). But it is very noisy. Poor aerodynamics and very little sound padding, you won't feel the road, but you'll defiantly hear it. Unfortunately there are many small problems that really take it away from it's glory: The interior looks and feels cheap (even the limited). Easy to break plastic everywhere, drab style, the rear seats are uncomfortable, and even though it's a SUV, it lacks storage space in the rear. Jeeps can take so much abuse, but Chrysler's bad designs sabotage the reliability, which makes most stuff breaks on it's own. The electronics, AC systems, and various non essential parts are very prone to failure. The transmission's are not very reliable for this year either. General maintenance in the 4.0 is a breeze, but the 5.2 is a horror show. The engine bay is so tight and cluttered on the 5.2 just changing the oil filter takes a lot of time. Good news most of the parts are cheap, and there are no strange tools or methods for repairs on these trucks. Overall it's such a give and take when it comes to the ZJ line. What it does right, excels beyond all expectations, but those nit-picks hurts. Now it is defiantly much better the the early 2000's jeeps (which were so bad almost killed the jeep line). Personally, in my opinion, the best years to buy are the 1996-1999 models (which fixed the interior, transmission, some electrics and T-Cases in the Limited). I love my Jeep though, If you need a really tough dependable multi-function SUV, not afraid to get your hands dirty with some maintenance, and your not really concerned with bells, whistles or looks; look no further.

not that i care, but the gas mileage isnt great

Hands-down The Best Suv. — Awesome off-road, awesome on-road. Comfortable, loads of space, can tow well. All round, of the the best utility vehicles out there. Even if you dont jack it up and out big tires on it. But you definitely should. I did, and it makes it a TRUE go-anywhere, do anything vehicle.
