Best Suv Ive Driven — acceleration is really good. hops right out of the lights. its build is nice and solid ever since the front end was reallined. exterior appearance is a bit boring. but that will be fixed pretty quick. interior could use some seat covers. I love driving it. gets around 20 miles to the gallon.

Pros: handling. comfort factor. breathing room in the lane. climate control. gas pedal response. brakes. clutch. torque. traction.

Cons: tires. rims. trim.

Good Adventure Car — This was a very fun car, with lots of memories with car trips to the Florida Keys and Miami Beach.

Pros: Solid looks, lit toggle switches for power windows.

Cons: While not as unreliable as my Mini Cooper, this one was definitely a problem child.

Title Review Goes Here — The engine lasts forever, just rolled-over 100,000 miles and running great. Engine should last for atleast another 100,000 miles. Only downside is that gas is $4.00 a gallon. This sucks because I love to drive it.

Pros: Longetivity

Cons: Gas Mileage 14mpg

Hawt — It's not quite like the one in the picture. It's black, and the lift kit isn't quite as high, but I still love it! It's easy to drive and has yet to tip over on me. :]

Pros: The lift kit makes it look better than a regular Cherokee, it's easy to drive, and it runs well. There's no big dents or scratches, either.

Cons: The lift kit could cause it to flip if it's turned too sharply, the inside smells a bit odd (nothing bad, just... different), and there's something wrong with the battery it has now so we have to jump start it... But that's easily fixed.

Competent Off Roading Machine, And An Attractive Home Depot Runner. — There's something to be said about a design that barely changed in 15 years. There's a certain beauty to the Cherokee's rugged lines. A little lift and tires, and you can tackle a lot off road too.

Pros: Pretty unstoppable, takes a beating and keeps ticking.

Cons: Gremlins, horrible gas milage.

Oh Baby, What A Jeep — From road running to mud running and everything in between, this Jeep has been there and done that, and lived to do it again. With a 4.0L I6 with 190hp 225 ft-lbs, 2 speed transfercase, this Jeep is the go anywhere, climb anything.

Pros: 4WD is more sure footed then a mountain goat.

Cons: There are none

Gets The Job Done — Although it is a very handy car in the winter months, it is a financial burden. The thing drinks gas like a thirsty mallard drinks water. I am also not a fan of high riding SUVs. I prefer the low to the ground and smooth handling of a compact car.

Pros: Great in the winter and can drive over anything. Also, has 210,000+ miles on it and is still going strong.

Cons: Gas guzzler. Rough ride.

Reliable Vehicle That Relies Upon Its Roots. — The Jeep doesnt rely on its appearence because the look has become quite dated. But, its roots remain in tact and remains a very capable and reliable vechicle. When put to the limits, you want to be in this box on wheels.

Pros: Capability Handling

Cons: appearence inside & outside.
