"I've had my Cherokee for two years now and I love it. the only thing I wish it would have is a way to unlock the front axle. it is the QUAD RA TRAC so no lever. I get about 17 MPG town or highway mileage. not bad for the V8 motor & full time four wheel drive."

"I'll drive this thing until the wheel fall off.....it goes anywhere I need it to, and probably some places I shouldn't go. Yes, it's an older vehicle, but overall it's comfortable and pretty reliable, the fact that it's 18 years old not withstanding.... Sure, stuff breaks, but it's pretty user friendly to fix. I got this one to replace my old one which was totaled in an accident, my daughter and I walked away without a scratch, which impressed me. Hence the reason I own another"

"Bought our '98 in 2001 with 30k. Finally talked the wife into getting a new SUV & now it's mine. Great vehicle in snow, rough stuff. A little stiff on the road, but never really notice till driving the wife's new car. Only concern is the continual ecm issues. It has never left us stranded, was always able to nurse her home, but changed the ecm 3 times so far. If you have the same issue, go to a Jeep Dealer! Wish I could find a drivers side front inner panel... But hey, great Jeep! I Get 15mpg"

Pros: "Everything that it is"

"Being a used vehicle aficionado, my cozy, 1996 Grand Cherokee, 5.2 v8, auto awd, with quite a few amenities, is reliable and running strong with over 220,000 miles is one of if not my favorite vehicles I've owned. I've towed vehicles with it, treated it like a cargo truck, and taken it trail blazing and it remains my daily driver and treats me very well. Though I ask a lot of it sometimes, I do take pretty good care of it so we've formed a pretty solid trust between us. Granted these vehicles could be viewed as "dated" but I don't know if they'll ever be obsolete. They were made very well, except for the ones made on a Monday."
