"This car has been through my dentist, my niece, my nephew, my daughter and me and still runs like a top. Luxurious it is not but reliable as heck. Still goes and goes. Headliner is a pain, repair on the heater core is a poor access design. But an incredible value still and just won't quit."

"I bought a 1995 Cherokee Sport back in 1998. it had 30,000 miles on it.I have put 3000,00 more thousand on this vehicle.Still has original drive train including universal joints,original shocks and exhaust. original front end gear.I have only replaced wear items like brakes,starter and Alternator. Whenever someone tells me a cherokee is a cheap pice of junk ,I laugh,for I know better."
