"Bought this Jeep 2005 with 200k mile on it from a dealership manager who did do know how great this car was. I am a mechanic/ not by profession but i knew i could fix it up. Replaced a few parts every now and then and drove it for the last 100k plus. still runs like a charm. Does have a tendency to run hot in the summer in Vegas. 210/220 but as long as i do not try and go over the mountain range ( in Summer) all is fine. Love the Vehicle and retired now."

Love love love this Jeep!

"I have had this Jeep for 8 years now and have put 95,000 miles on it. It has been a great SUV with few minor issues but with the age and mileage it is to be expected. Great towing capacity and lots of interior room. I will run this vehicle till the wheels fall before getting a new one!"

"The Jeep Cherokee is the vehicle that started the SUV craze. It has been in the family since new and we will never part with it! It is still reliable, comfortable, powerful, and capable even though it is over 20 years old. One winter my wife was driving to work and the main road was flooded, cars were turning around, some disabled along the side of the road. Up ahead a police officer was putting up a barricade to close the road, when he saw our Jeep he waved my wife through and closed the road behind her. She confidently continued on her way and got to work safely. Like they say, "Only in a Jeep.""

"We bought it new in 1993 and it is a great car. Has always had good service. It does need a new headliner. Had a leaky windshield but that has been replaced, minor rusting under front seat in the screws. Never had any children in it. Never took it four wheeling. The body is straight and it runs good."
