1985 Jeep CherokeeReview

It's A Love Hate Relationship....... — The fact that this thing has been on the road for 25 years is a testament to the old Jeeps. Even though she only has the 2.5 L4, she's got enough power to get me to and from work and around town on the weekends. I've only replaced the radiator, waterpump, plugs, wires, cap and rotor, and rear shocks. I've doen a few other quick fixes here and there, but those are to be expected for a lady this age!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: No nonsense reliability from a tried and true American-made platform that lasted for a decade and more, unchanged.

Cons: If you don't like getting dirty and fixing minor problems that pop up from time to time due to age and the lakc of care from previous owners, buy something new.
