1997 Jeep Cherokee Country 4-Door 4WDReview

Blaqk Is Back — I have owned this unit for five years now and I simply can't part with it and really why would I? When I first bought it the poor thing practically rolled over on command, the pumpkins where about 6 inches off the ground and just not set up the way that I wanted. So alot of money later I am slowly getting it to the point where I want it.

Pros: There is an endless supply of mods for these units.

Cons: Easy to spend money with mods

We Bought This Used And Have Had Nothing But Trouble — We bought this used from a relative who was the original owner. It started out fine and then, problems, problems. I started to hear from other people that they had the same kind of problems. The car would lose power but still be on. Numerous rounds in the shop and then we talked with someone who had had the same problem and we got it fixed. Now we are having problems with it losing power and completely turning off, while driving.

Pros: Comfortable

Cons: problems that are hard to diagnose

One Of The Best Fowl Weather Beasts Out There — even though this old jeep only gets 15 mph in the city it will go when nothing else will it drives great and runs good for 200+ miles. 4 wheel drive is easy to operate and I feel comfortable when the wife and kids need to go in bad weather.the truck accelerates well and drives quite well. I bought this old jeep wrecked last summer for 500 dollars and spent about that much more to fix her up and after this winter have decided it was money well spent .its a keeper!

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

Pros: will go most anywhere in any road condition

Cons: not very fuel eff.
