April Car Search Winner — i talked with the owner several times over the past 2 weeks during a recent search for a solid running classic in my current price range. maybe it was the sunshinest day we've seen this spring or trudging through so many inappropriate vehicles but when i got an upclose underneath hood up look round test drive this was the Car search winner! after insurance when we're better aquinted i'll update the review...pictures to follow~its been Beauteous these last 36 hours tho ;-)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Mechanically Clean: engine runs strong, gears change smoothly, new brakes and tires, recent exhaust installed, maintained original equipment, air shocks in the rear, tow hitch, 2WD 4WD options, minimal rust, windows roll up & down-rubber fair2good, all doors open & close, hatchback hydrolics work find, everything under the hood looks good (needs tune up/oil change), glass on all but winshield great, rear defrost, heat, air conditioning works fine, dome lights/headlights/signals/wipers all ok, no rips/tears on seats, solid floor panels under decent carpet, back seat folds down well for cargo. passed inspection last June for 2 year plates

Cons: Crack in the Windshield, after that: Mostly cosmetic:needs radio, back panel needs to be reinstalled after speakers are placed back in(previous owner purchased-didn't finish), can hardly see dings from hail storm-doen't have rust forming, back wiper is present but needs to be plugged up to operate,will start to gage gas mileage after tune up & overall check

Perfect For People Who Dont Have Many Kids Ands Likes Offroading — I liked the 4 wheel drive selection, the way it handles on and offroad the great offroad look. I have only jad to work on this jeep one time I changed the starter. It is not the most comfortable thing I have ever drove but the heater works excellent and I liked the power windows that alot of older jeeps dont have.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very good lookin. Great off and  on road.

Cons: Not big enough when uhave 3 kids

I Love This Car Best First Car Ever — I loved this car, it was great on everything, all the breaks on it were cheap and fairly easy but it was a fun car its a shame i drove like an idiot in and wrecked it. i had to redo the brakes a few times that was the only bad issue on it but i think that was because of my driving but, it was running strong 200,000 miles and could have kept going for a while

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

Pros: the handling worked great, i drove it like a rally car at times.

Cons: the only things i didnt like was personally issues with me like the gas tank leaking and the speedometer only went up to 85

Great Car If You Can Afford The Up Keep And Its American Built! — Bought the car when I was 16 for $1,700 out-right. I have owned it for roughly 5 yrs now and it still is working. I replaced the starter, a new water pump, and new tires. Over all just looking to get from point A to point B.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles great, so much power for such a small SUV.

Cons: Gas Mileage, and repair problems.

Great Vehicle, I Have 3 — This was a great very capable vehicle overall, I got it at the end of its life. Not due to a failure, but a lack of previous maintenance. I ended up using it for parts for another Jeep. It had many of the common XJ's having including oil leaks and floor rust problems, but it got me were I needed to go.

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

Pros: Stock Off-Road capability

Cons: Gas Mileage

Cherokee — Rear Axle sucks, motor and transmission is good. Decent rock climber. Overall nice ride with a lift and big tires. Cheap insurance aswell. Fuel milage isnt too bad considering It has 4.10 gears in the front and rear axles. Cheap to buy.

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

Pros: Pretty good offroad

Cons: terrible rear end.

Love My Jeep — 1990 xj, with the 4.0, dana 30 in front and dana 35 in rear, automatic, has a pacesetter header with a super 44 flowmaster muffler, has rancho springs, shocks, and control arms, and 2 inch blocks in the back. big horn maxxis tires. I love my jeep! It does great offroading even when it was just stock! I plan on finding a dana 44 to replace my 35 and maybe a storker kit for the 4.0 in the future.

Pros: easy to work on, fun to off road and on road, and sounds great

Cons: the owner before my uncle didnt maintane very well so had to replace alot of parts to do poor maintance

Good Reliable Ugly Car — 267,000 miles later and it still rams through fences pretty well with minimal maintenance :) Killer gas mileage but ugly as hell! Parts and maintenance is super cheap. You can always find another wrecked junker Jeep. Easy to work on, you can see all the parts :)

Pros: to get to the other side

Cons: It's ugly!
