Pros

Great in the winter.

Cons

Back seats do not have a lot of room and the back doors are narrow. Road noise.

5

Good Suv — Love mostly everything about this car except the roominess of the back seat. Road noise is an issue once we are on the freeway. The 4-Wheel drive was easy to use and great in the snow. Took on many family trips.

Pros

I like the jeep because it has a rugged look once lifted. The 4x4 is very capable and there are seats for 5.

Cons

Solid front axle does not drive on the paved roads very well after the jeep is lifted.

Very Capable, Upgradable, And Reliable Off Road Vehicle. — I love my jeep because it looks awesome and 4x4's very well. I have front and rear air lockers which make my jeep very capable. However the engine is load and could use more power. The front end sways and swerves on paved roads.

Pros

Handling in the Snow is wonderful!  Love the off road capabilities, tight turn radius makes parking lots a breeze.  Love the classic Jeep Cherokee look.

Cons

Not very roomy for a family of 5.  Gas mileage is not great for long trips.

Agressive And Fun To Drive. — Love mostly everything about this car except the roominess now that we have a family of 5. Would buy this car again and again. Road noise is an issue once we are on the freeway, but that seems to be normal with jeeps of this era.

Absolutely love the old style Cherokee!  Great space, reliable, and fun!

Cons

There are no cup holders in the back seat for passengers...

Filthy Dirty Jeep Girl — The old style Cherokee is by far my first choice for a play toy. There is so much you can add, change, and upgrade on these vehicles for fairly cheap. Many companys have specific parts and accessory magazines just for Cherokee Sport enthusiasts. Fun to take off roading or drive around town, gas mileage is not the greatest.

Its A Good Starter Car. — this is a veryy great car over all this is a perfect car other than the small cracks in the paint that you only see in extreams of heat. also the a/c does not work at all. cool air puled through from out side and the windows are good enough though. the acceleration is awesome. better then some cars that iv been in. braking is squshy. fast and can lock but squshy. front disk brakes and rear drum brakes. handling is awesome. havnt fliped yet. i have heard snaps from the plastic dashboard from shrinking and streching due to tempurature. all black inside and teal sparkle blue out side. small door dings on driver side door. about 18-20mpg. no maintenance.all oils are clean. i love to drive this car.

Pros

Great low end torque and off road handling.

Cons

Fuel mileage may be a problem for people looking for better economy.

25

Jeep Sets The Standard For Offroad Performance. — Very good low end torque from the 4.0 liter in-line 6 cylinder, and is damn near bomb proof. Fuel mileage isn't the greatest, but to be expectied for an SUV made for running through ruts and rough trails. Off road this truck is almost unstoppable with the right set of tires under it and feels right at home bumper deep in mud.
