    Last Real Suv — My first 4WD. A lot of fun off road and in the snow. Super stable on and off road. Not flashy or high tech but was a solid vehicle.

    Pros: Superb off road handling.  Stable and reliable.

    Cons: Power windows must have been an afterthought, replaced power window assembly 3 times.  1 wheel bearing failed after 80,000 miles.  A/C core needed to be replaced after 120,000 miles.

    Great Jeep. — I have had this Jeep for about 5 years now and have had very few problems with it. I have done some work to it and most of the problems I have had I have been able to fix on my own. I have a 3.5" lift and 32" tires. I had to trim the front fenders to make room for the tires. This is my second XJ, I wish they would not have stopped making them.

    My Good Friend Lee's Good Friend And First Car. — Wonderful machine. Did great for my friend Lee. Surprisingly agile with great handling. Great Power-to-Weight Ratio. More coming soon.

    Cons: Stolen May 2007. Recovered in less than drivable condition.

    This Is A Tank! — Big square box. Noisy, not particularly fast, pretty basic. Can drive over anything and has about 4000 ft/lbs of torque at 1000 rpm. Engine produces about 6 peak HP. Indestructible.

    Pros: Cast Iron everything.

    Cons: Rusts when you drive it off the lot.

    My Baby — I drove my Jeep everywhere until it was stolen in May 2007. It had a smooth ride and had alot of power. Great handeling for an SUV. I miss it so much.

    Pros: Great acceleration and performance. Solid veichle.

    Cons: Not much room in the back but who cares if you're the one driving it.

    A Real Suv — This may not have the luxury trappings of your fancy crossover Lexus's but it wasn't designed to cart your little kiddies to soccer practice. It handles well for a vehicle of it's size, and his great acceleration. The 4WD system is amazing I've driven it in over a foot of fresh powder and it preformed just fine. I've driven it on ice, not a problem. I've taken it off road, it goes further in 2WD then most SUV's will make it in 4WD. I did have issues with the stereo with front speakers not working. But I replaced them with an upgraded set and they worked fine after that. It turned out not to be the speakers themselves but a wiring issue that is common in Jeeps of that generation. It did get poor gas mileage but what can you expect out of an SUV. The 4.0L Straight Six engine never once has had any major issues, or broken down. Update: 10/22/2012. I no longer own this vehicle it provided me 7 years of reliable service without ever once breaking down or leaving me stranded anywhere. I would still own this vehicle today if it weren't for having major structural and suspension issues. The frame and axles had rusted through. The entire rear end was basically rotten. It had bad tie rods, brushings, and CV joints up front. It also needed new shocks and struts. The final call for all this is when the brake line failed and I discovered all the other issues in the rear. Due to the expense of these repairs I choose not to get it repaired. The dealer I had purchased my Jeep from is out of business and the owner has left town. He has sold many people lemons, and rebuilt wrecks from other states that got re-branded as "clean" in Ohio.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4WD, reliability, performance, timeless styling.

    Cons: Gas Mileage, Power Windows can only be controlled by driver.

    Solid Jeep — The jeep has been a great suv for 13 years. It has stood up over time and still looks good, drives well especially using four wheel drive. It's a smaller suv and therefore the back seat and even the front is tight. It's loud compared to today's vehicles.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 4WD, rugged looks

    Cons: Noise, back seat size
