    Wouldnt Do Without One So If She Breaks I Will Buy A New One ! — this jeep is awsome cos you leave it anywhere and it stays there and starts every time however i punish her,she goes great through the mud and is comfortable on road ! she's great to drive especialy when boy racers pull up alongside and i just floor it across the lights with both wheels spinning and leave them they dont realize she's a four litre so loads of power !!!

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

    Pros: she's automatic so one legged people can drive her !

    Cons: buy one if you can cos there cheap as chips if you can afford 15 to the gallon !!!

    1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee — There are afew minor scratches on the exterior, no rusting at all. The interior is in perfect shape & the sound system if amazing. It's fun to drive if you like to scare people who think it'll tip over. The only thing that sucks is I only get 15 miles/gallon.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: speakers, interior, exterior

    Cons: gas mileage

    I Love It — The performance to me is great, it goes. Branking is great. Handling is good but at sharp turns very dangerous. Yes it had its repairs, every old car needs repairs to keep it maintain. My appearance on the jeep is in fair condition. Ever since i bought this jeep i've kept maintain but the gas mileage is terrible. Is this car fun to drive? yea its so much fun, especially when its a 4x4.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its fun to drive, it goes, nice off road

    Cons: Bumpy, not a smooth ride, gas killer, small but what can you say its a JEEP

    Not Bad — the performance is actually pretty lame... i mean its an old jeep. it needs a few repairs... and it needs a radio... the old one broke. im not gonna lie, its kinda ugly... but just like a mom would have unconditional love for her baby no matter how ugly it was... its tha same between me and my car. it gets horrible gas milage tho. Its fun to drive offroad with it tho.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a good and reliable vehicle... most of the time. it fun offroad too

    Cons: if u like sports cars or somethin tht goes fast or sounds cool... this isnt tha car for u.

    Glad I Bought It (used In 2001). — Keeps on going w/o much maintenance and old enough so no one want to steal it. Gas mileage could be better, @ 14 city/19 highway, but not too bad for an old lady of a car. Would buy it again.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: solid, easy to drive, maintain

    Cons: no power windows, air conditioner is weak

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gets me where i need to go

    Big Red Jeep — 4" Skyjacker lift, 31x10.50 BF Goodrich All-terrain T/A Tires, Black Pacer rims with Chrome Pacer center caps, Bull bar with brush guards around headlights, Red exterior and grey interior, Other than that, it is still bone stock but that is the way I like it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The lift is awesome, I love diving it knowing I can go almost anywhere I wish.

    Cons: The mileage!  Has over 220000 miles on it.

    Auto Is A Bit To Get Used To But After You Get It Its Alot Easyer In 4wd — not to bad on and off road... auto gear box is a bit different to use in 4wd but once you get it it is better than you think off-road... drives on road very well... just likes a good bit of fuel...

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

    Pros: smaller than a patrol or cruiser

    Cons: suspension always sags over the years

    Absolute Beast — The performance is excellent (fastest SUV sold in the U.S. for 14 years) Offroad performance is unmatched. The Jeep has always held up well, no major problems. 22 mpg highway, and is an absolute joy to drive even with a 3.5 in lift and oversized tires.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: solid axle, low end torque, turning circle, wheelbase, lightwieght (3200 lbs)

    Cons: wind noise above 65 mph
