    Jeep Cherokee — accelerates pretty danm fast for a jeep. decent braking and great handling. still runs pretty good. both interior and exterior is good. gas mileage could be a bit better. about 15 miles to the gallon. doesnt take much to maintain it. just keep on changing the oil. super fun. even though its not 4wd i still treat it like it is lol. anybody whos thinking about gettin one i recommend it. good reliable vehicles and fun to drive.

    Pros: fun and reliable

    Cons: bad on gas

    Woody Ending — i drove this car for about 6 months and ended up putting it against a tree on accident. it isn't a bad vehicle if you live out in the country and may need 4wd for snow or something

    Pros: 4wd

    Cons: when not in 4wd it is really unstable

    Pros: 4 WD

    Cons: unirail bodies are weak off road

    Good All Around Vehicle — This vehicle was a good, solid truck. not overly roomy inside but comfortable to drive.. almost car-like. fuel mileage was ok for an SUV but if the fuel tank was low the fuel would slosh in the tank so bad that during cornering, the fuel pump would not pick up any fuel, causing engine hesitation. these vehicles are also prone to rust on the body. Only other issue i had with mine was a driveline imbalance that caused shaking at freeway speeds. you could remedy this somewhat by putting it in on-demand 4wd.

    Pros: engine, acceleration, driving comfort, winter traction, on-demand 4wd feature (allows for
    AWD on pavement.)

    Cons: fuel tank design, driveline issues, mediocre brakes, small interior

    It Is A Great Go Anywhere Do Anything Kind Of Vehicle. — Functionality and power all in one nice and neat package has its benefits. What the cherokee lacks in sound proofing or comfort it easily makes up for in its fun drivability and raw power from a never dying inline 6 cylinder that has been around since the original jeep days with few changes.

    Pros: Torque, steering, indestructible exterior, style

    Cons: Gas mileage, comfort, noise

    Reliable In All Weather Conditions And Easy To Drive. — 4 wheel drive is great. Ok gas mileage. Never gets stuck in the snow or in the mud. Interior handles all types of mud and dirt. Engine never fails to start, and will go forever if regularly cared for. Overall, very little problems. very solid vehicle

    Pros: 4WD, easy to drive,

    Cons: Accelerates slow, and 16 city mpg just eats a full tank
