87' Cherokee Laredo 4.0 Litre Inline 6 — I went to town with $1,365.00 looking for something inexpensive for my FIRST car/truck/whatever and we went by a little dealership and saw this beautiful blue Jeep just sitting there and I instantly fell in love with it, considering its my first car and its a standard,(the transmission works REALLY REALLY WELL)its teaching me how to drive stick and it has the best handling that i know of...i drove brand new cars that don't drive as good as my jeep, the only thing that didn't work in it was the radio(original) so i went and bought me a new one and put it in and all of the speakers work fine but there is no bass, the electric windows and windshield wipers work , the hood seems to be losing paint but im gonna repaint it, it is truly a great car and its and AWESOME party vehicle, I took it camping by a lake and it handles like a charm, I went off reading with it and couldn't bottom out, and everything but the radio and the muffler is original, so yeah...its a pretty good car and i love it!

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

Pros: Gas guzzler

Cons: 25 years old, everything but the cruise control works.

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

Pros: freedom

Cons: could run you over ;)

1987 Jeep Cherokee — This Jeep held up well, I sold it when it had 185,000 miles. Still got a decent buck. Everything still worked, except the back windshield wiper. Replaced the radiator after 14 years. Started well in winter, and fun to drive. Still lots of them on the roads even today. Had an issue with the water based paint that eroded on the hood. I had my "wiener dog logo" on the bug shield for Little Squirt Grooming Inc.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Pretty reliable

Cons: Paint Issues

My 87 Cherokee — Anything and everything went wrong with it as it was an 87 but even on its worse days it drove like a champ. Lots of cabin space, strong engine, poor gas mileage. wish i could have it back. it had a lot of cosmetic issues but each problem gave it character.

Pros: strong engine

Cons: poor mpg

Nice Off Road! — My first car, got it and really love it, specially cause it was 5 speed manual transmission,but it was AWD, so that means a lot of gas! Trade it in for another car and i really miss my Jeep! :(

Pros: Space, Off road package, affordable parts

Cons: Gas consume, remember its a L6 AWD!
