Pros: "Classic looks, reliable, lots of fun to drive!"

Cons: "They don't make 'em like this any more!"

And yes, I pulled right out easily in 4WD!

"I bought my 2000 Cherokee Classic in 2009, with 35k on the clock. Added red stripes on the sides and Wet Okole seat covers, otherwise she is completely stock. I now have 85k on her & she continues to drive like a dream. Totally reliable, never gives me any trouble. Fits me like a glove in the cockpit with the power seats (I'm 5' 3"), but is a little tight for my husband (good - I don't like how he drives her anyway). Classic, classic looks. Gets thru snow easily (& I live in Philly, where they NEVER plow). Drove her to CO & back once - no sweat, got 25mpg on the highway with cruise control on. No worries about the small back seat; I always have the seat down for my dogs. Lots of easily accessible storage space in the back when the seat is down. Has top of the line Infinity stereo with cassette & CD players; I recently updated the speakers & sound is great. Used to drive an '84, then '94 S-10 Blazer - loved 'em both, but the Jeep beats 'em by a mile. The new Cherokees are hideous! I will never sell my baby!!"

Jeepers! This is a great Jeep Cherokee.

"Must sell my pride and joy! Great car that is in excellent condition; the vehicle has been kept clean and immaculate, and maintenance has always been kept current. The vehicle is great in any weather conditions, and is perfect in snow, or for driving up on the beach too! Drives like a Cherokee and this would make a great vehicle for anyone who loves the Jeep Cherokee or a high school/college student, wanting a super first vehicle with 4WD for any and all weather conditions, as well as space for hauling sports equipment to and from practice(s). Always driven with care, you will be able to tell immediately this this vehicle has many more adventures for the Cherokee enthusiast! As I said, I must sell the vehicle or I'd be keeping it for myself!"

"Too bad they discontinued this vehicle. It's probably one of the best models Jeep ever made. The engine is terrific. I bought it used with 62,000 mile. After owning it for over 13 yrs, I now have 192,000 mile. It'll last forever."
