1987 Jeep CherokeeReview

Total Piece Of Junk!!!! — My ex-girlfriend bought this car against my advice about 6 years ago. I KNEW I was going to have to do constant repairs to it, and I was right. She gave it to me 4 years ago, in consideration for all the time I'd spent on it keeping it going for her. I have replaced or had trouble with just about every single component and system, and find it to be the most POORLY engineered and thought-out vehicle I have ever owned. It will be a cold, bitter cold, day in hell before I EVER own one of these pieces of wreckage again!!

Owner for 4 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: NONE

Cons: Poorly designed and engineered; poor ergonomics; rotten reliability; terrible mileage; unecessarily complicated systems; shoddy parts quality; all-around a bad piece of work.  Very much a product of the OLD AMC/Jeep corporation.

Good Suv By Jamie

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 f... Read More
