"This is my first vehicle - bought brand new in '99 & have over 235,000 miles on it now & still kickin'. Other than regular maintenance & inspections, it hasn't seen the mechanic. Great off-road too. Still manage about 20 mpg. I LOVE THIS JEEP...wish they still made them. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!"
"got one last year with 93k miles. starts up every time, shifts nice, 3wd works well. only issue is pas front power window sometimes needs a few tries to go up or down. been getting over 15 mpg if driven nicely. i hope i can get another 100k out of it!"
"This is my third Cherokee, and I wouldn't consider anything else except for a Grand Cherokee. The reliability is fantastic, I have over 200,000 miles on mine and it is still running strong. My two sons also own Jeep Cherokees and love them."
"My wife and I bought our Jeep in 2005 with about 30k miles on it. Drove the vehicle from Virginia through Mexico and Central America to Costa Rica and then back up the Pacific Coast and across the entire USA! All in all, we put another 50k miles on the truck with nothing but oil changes. I have spent a total of $700 on all maintenance and repairs in 2 years which is great considering the amount of offroad abuse we have subjected it to."
"I love my Cherokee. It's the first brand new car I've owned. I've had it for 9 years and a 124.000 miles and it keeps going and going. I keep thinking about trading it in for a new patriot/liberty, but I can't because it's done me so well and there is nothing wrong with it. I've only had a few mechanical problems - the silinoid(?) went out on the transmission. That was my biggest expense. I love for it to snow because then I can have fun. Awesome vehicle. Hope it lasts forever because I don't know what I'd do without it. Nothing else out there even comes close. Jeep needs to bring it back!!"
"I have had my 1999 Keep Cherokee for only a year. In that year i have replaced the tires and breaks, but driven it over 40,000 miles, which is a lot. If you are looking for good power and reliability, JEEP IS AWESOME!!!!"
"I have a 1998. Has been a great car. No engine issues at all. Power window and locks on a few doors have been an issue, but what is one to expect for this year car with 133,000 miles.
Runs like it did 10 years ago!!!"
"I must say that I adore my Jeep Cherokee and wish that they had never taken it out of production. What a tragic mistake. I owned a Cherokkee Country which was gorgeous and now I'm driving a 2001 Cherokee Sport which took some gettign used to but it's still boxey and classic, elgant and rugged - it'a very sexy car and have you ever noticed how both men and women look fantatsic in it, city or country? They are cherished in L.A. - - I live in Los Angleles, land of the winding canyon road, the Malibu beach traffic and the infamous free-way jams - you have to have a reliable car, period, and I think the fact that there are millions of these on the roads here is a testmanet to their beauty! . The Country was my baby and I cried when I turned it in - the 2001 Sport had A/C Evaporator trouble which did run $1,000 and Jeep offered to pick up half of the tab as I was just over the warranty - All other issues are standard - replaced the battery once, standard oil-changes, etc. - I love this truck and I must say, seven years later with a detail and hand wax, the truck still looks factory new - the paint is an inky black and just glistens - the interior is flawless. The dash-board has such a great shape and the winddows are so easy to see otu of, large and clear - todays new cars feel like your in a plane cock-pit with three feet of dash-board in front of you - the Jeep is easy to get in and out of, even in a skirt, and it's such a classic - pick-up is unbelievable - got rear-ended in it, the frame was like a sherman tank and I emerged from the accident unscathed. Even the tow truck driver and body shop said - "Nobody build frames like Jeep". An American classic with parts that aren't so expensive that they aren't going to make you faint if you need to replace them! LOVE MY JEEP - BRING BACK the Cherokee please - nothing compares - there was no need to round the lines or "update it" - a classic is a classic - BTW - it's the #1 choice of cars for interior designers as we have to haul tons of antiques and furniture to and from job sites but we still need to look stylish doing it - FABULOUS!!!! There's a rumour in LA that Jeeps get towed the most but I beg to differ - I've never towed one in 12 years of owning them back-to-back."
"I got my used '99 Jeep Cherokee in 2006 with around 60K miles. It now has over 90k and hasn't even thought about letting me down. The 4.0 inline 6 is a no nonsense engine that is built like a tank but even more reliable. Other than the fact that it is somewhat lacking in the creature comfort department I would say this is one of the best vehicles, out of the dozens I have owned over the years that I have ever owned. Oh, by the way, my 15 year old daughter hated it until she started learning to drive with it. Now she loves it and swears by it but hates the color. Oh well-I guess I get to keep it!"
