"This is a one-owner Jeep. It has served me well for the past 16 years . . . it does need some minor work (hood release, inside trim, some sap on outside pain, air conditioning needs repair), but is in good condition otherwise. Just got new brakes 11 months ago!"

"I owned this car for 4.5 years she was my first car bought it when i was 16 with152200miles on her payed 5grand (life savings at the time)bone stock... loved the styling so did the ladies started every time no matter how hard the beating was the day before ran like atop (beat most of the cars in the high school parking lot to...don't tell mom) through mud sand snow the 4x4 preforms flawlessly you won't get stuck unless your asking for it. If your one of those people that doesn't want to hear any rattleing noises this isn't the car for you... but if you don't mind that you will simply get board of this car before it dies quite seriously I didn't change the oil for 10000miles on conventional 5w30 ...and it still was fine like it never happened no blow by no burning oil the car had a very durable drive line forward to reverse slams until I could get it unstuck or till a buddy showed up and never broke anything maintenance is very easy and new parts are readily available ...well all good things come to an end at about 194567miles I sliped on some black ice yesterday left the freeway sideways after rolling twice 3 of the 4 doors (missing handle) still opened and closed even worked even when the door was crushed motor still started and ran fine tranny still went into gear 4x4 still worked power steering brakes the windows that were left even rolled down...I would have dove it home if all 4 were not flat I walked away with out even losing a drop of blood or even a scratch from day one till yesterday that car preformed above and beyond my expectations (used to commute 100 miles a day for about a year...also was road tripped often)I will without a doubt get another one! high milage on these cars wouldn't scare me off I have met people along my travels with 310000 and they run flawlessly and I have recommended them to a lot of people and when they get them they are always very pleased...great starter car great college car ...it was my life...shoot it saved my life..."

"So I bought this jeep from my local tow yard and it was sitting for a winter.my mother had one from 80, xxx to 303, xxx miles and the only thing that need to be fixed wa valve cover gasket and plugs and wires. So she has beep a mopar person since then. So I found this jeep and paid 1200 for it for the tow yard to get it out and bring it to my house. Fixed the brakes and a new battery and it was good to go. No other problem to date. Best suv ever.I have yet to get stuck with it in any trails or holes."

"Great used car! The A/C system and radiator was completely replaced in 2014. My younger brother has expressed some interest in this Jeep. This Jeep was my second Cherokee, so in 2014 I bought my third Cherokee, a 2014 and love it! The wife had been using it for work for a few years, earlier it was mine to drive to work. Loved it, but today it rides too much like a truck for me, which is what it is I guess! Body is in excellent condition!"

"I keep my jeeps for a long time. Easily Count on 150k - 200k mileage. Reliability is my biggest qualifier. still has nice-looking classic Cherokee style lines Durability and comfort has always been great. Have rarely had to put any big repairs on any of the jeeps I've owned. Last one was 20 yrs old, still looking good and running fine at 180k miles. Love my Cherokee's."
