It Will Be Mine For Ever!! — This suv is of the best in quality i have ever driven.It"s looks and performance to me, is top of the line. It"s in need of a transmission now and i"ve been trying to find a used one for it but they are hard to find, so it"s off to get it rebuilt. Maintenance in the past has not been bad as far as breakdowns, just the everyday upkeep as we all put up with.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: quality, performance

Cons: none

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis 4WDReview

Great Jeep If You Can Afford The Gas. — This has been a great Jeep. Reliability has been pretty good. I've had the fuel pump go bad on me and the fan clutch and water pump, everything else has worked perfect. The transmission is starting to have a couple issues with shifting from 2nd to 3rd and it is a common problem with the vehicles but once rebuilt the rebuild kit comes with a better seal that fixes this problem. The Orvis is fun to drive in the snow and performs excellent off-road. During the summer months it is kind of bland to drive because on-road handling is weak. I would never sell it and I'm going to try to keep it going forever.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Stock offroad capability and snow traction

Cons: MPG

It Will Hit 340000km Sometime Soon! — This has been a fantastic vehicle. Low maintenance, tough, power full and just won't die. The last 4 years it has been my winter vehicle. I know the end is coming near but it just means a newer vehicle soon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cause the salt will eat the Mustang

Cons: Mine in particular? Battery acid in the back...

Fun — It is overall a pretty nice ride but I have the 5.2L V8 and it is sure a gas guzzler. It is a 4X4 which means there is a lot more maintenance. It handles pretty good and it has decent acceleration. Finally over 40 words...lol...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: sexy!

Cons: maintenance

My Couch On Wheels — It goes when you press the accelerator, stops when you press the brakes. V8 power when you need it, but accompanying fuel economy. Parts are cheap and easy to find. Good time off road, not too much excitement on the pavement.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: SUV capability in a good size

Cons: Gas mileage

97 Zj — Only had it a few weeks, but so far so good. Had to do some small repairs on gaskets and seals, but nothing serious. Drives well, performs well, handles the snow perfectly. Great car for a student. Love that the seats can fold back and make a bigger bed area.

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

Pros: Seems to be a good car

Cons: Stupid stuff needs fixing. Gaskets, seals, etc.
