My First Car — This was a great first car but with terrible fuel economy. Had a classic look may never go out of style, plenty of room, and was surprisingly comfortable (considering it's basically a truck). It never broke down and was perfect for western New York winters. It was eventually sold to my next door neighbor, where it terrorized me for three more years, sitting there in his driveway.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looking car, plenty of space, never broke down, extremely capable.

Cons: Terrible fuel economy; something like 16 mpg city (on a good day)

Good Vehicle — The transfer case died at 85K miles. Had a used one put in for $800. Had to replace bake lines and complete front brakes (needed everything). They locked up while driving and caught fire. But I've had it 15 years and 94K miles I don't have all that much money in it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great in snow.

Cons: Rear seats are good for short trips but uncomfortable for long trips.

1998 Jeep Xj Cherokee Sport — I really like the capabilities of this vehicle, and it's only gotten stuck once since I've owned mine. Gas mileage again, isn't the greatest, but I'll sacrifice some MPG's to have fun and not worry about the snow during wintertime. Rust likes to eat it away as well :/

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome for off-road, trail riding, sand, mud, snow. Mine's a manual, so that makes it that much better.

Cons: Fuel economy isn't the greatest. Usually get around 17 round town and 21 on the highway.

There's A Reason Jeeps Are Popular. — This thing just won't die!! But to be fair, I'm glad it hasn't. This truck's been through so much and keeps on kicking! It's cheap to maintain, solidly built and tough as nails. It'll probably still be running when I'm in my eighties.

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

Pros: Durability, Cost of ownership

Cons: Looks, comfort

One Of The Best Ever Made — great vehicle, best vehicle to ever have the Chrysler name as the earlier designs were aquired from AMC/Jeep. Only have had routine maintenance on this Jeep until approaching 150kmi, then had to do more - nothing major or concerning, though.

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

Pros: part-time 4WD, longevity/quality of engine

Cons: Rusting on front doors later in its life.

The only thing I dont like about the 2020 jeep Cherokee is the power. It lacks the take off power I prefer. But other than that its a beautiful vehicle rides smoothly and is comfortable. Read More
