"I have to say I have really used to its limits and it still keeps going. I have had in the past, fuel pump problems replaced 3 in about 3 years (thank god for the warranties). This is a strong vehcile that cruises at high speeds with no problems. Back seat is a nightmare getting the baby in and out of but never the less safe and reliable. The cherokee's would be a great car for your kids first car."
