"I've owned my Jeep for almost 12 years and it has been a great car. It has seen me through 2 kids and one wife; thats plenty for me! It has been reliable and the engine is a workhorse. My (soon to be former) Jeep has about 120K miles and it still has power to spare. It's time to upgrade to comfort, but this car is VERY reliable."
"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."
