What is "too old" for a vehicle

Asked by Nov 22, 2015 at 03:05 PM about the 1993 Jeep Cherokee

Question type: General

I have a 1993 Jeep Cherokee that is being given to me as a gift. It needs a new water pump, radiator and windshield, a paint job (thats all I know right now). I do not know how many miles it has, but I know it has had one owner. My concern is that because it is over 20 yrs old, that it would not be wise to invest in a vehicle this old. Any suggestions?

Jeep Cherokees are not reliable vehicles. They seem to have far more problems than other cars. I would dump that one and get something else. Just the mechanical items you listed other than the paint will cost the better part of a thousand dollars to fix and when you are done it will be worth $2,000 tops.

Also ... they are horrible on gas mileage ... even the 2 wheel drives

A good vehicle is never too old, but might be expensive to maintain. Those old Jeeps like in the picture were pretty much junk when they were new so a used one could be a nightmare. I would find a better vehicle to spend my money on.
