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.

Cons

it will destroy your car

My Jeep Is A Beast — I love my Jeep. It can basically go anywhere at any time, I love the fact that I can do this. The Jeep has a about a 4' lift on it with 33' tall tires. You can't miss me driving down the road because of the tires and the fact I have a heavy duty front bumper that will destroy anything in its path. Also, I have to KC Slim light long range lights mounted on the bumper; these are great to have in really dim light places or if I want to blind somebody :) lol. Bottom line I love my jeep, just wish i got better gas mileage

Pros

Nearly everything.  Only vehicle I ever owned that absolutely nothing broke on it in amost 100,000 miles.

Cons

Choppy bouncy ride (it's a Jeep, not a Cadillac!), rear seat/doors only really useable for children.

One Of The Best Vehicles Ever Built By Any Manufacturer! — This is one vehicle I really regret ever getting rid of. I loved everything about it except the small-ish rear seat and poor rear seat entry thru the skinny doors. I rarely carried passengers though. The 4.0L I6 paired with the Aisin-Warner AW4 transmission made for a blazing fast combination in a vehicle this lightweight. It would shame many the unsuspecting sports car or "ricer" that tried racing me. The ride quality wasn't very good, but it's a Jeep...Who cares? They're not supposed to ride good! MPG was excellent. I averaged 20 MPG and that was with a somewhat heavy foot. The Jeep XJ Cherokee in my opinion was one of the most indestructible vehicles ever produced, and I was saddened when they replaced it with the ugly "me too" SUV called the Liberty.

Pros

Off road capable, reliable, fun to drive.

Cons

Harsh ride, not a lot of storage room

It's A Jeep. — If you like nice riding luxury SUV's stay away from this one. If you like an SUV that is reliable and off road capable, then you would like it. This was the last year of the Cherokee, the last solid axle SUV you could buy. After the Cherokee Jeep released the Liberty, which is IFS. There are tons of aftermarket parts for Cherokees, including all kinds of lifts, bumpers, roof racks, etc. Mine is stock right now, but when the warranty is up I plan on lifting it and running 31" tires.

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.
