"I've owned my "04 Jeep for 2 1/2 years and it has been pretty good to me. I have read many of the reviews and had many of the same problems but nothing too major or expensive. Biggest issue would be the window regulators in both front windows breaking which can be expensive to repair. Excellent in any weather conditions and great handling and very comfortable to drive. I'm ready for a new car and still trying to figure out if I want another Cherokee. I would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable, midsize SUV."
