The look and performance of an adventurer with a little sophistication thrown in
The transmission seems to slip every now and again. The previous owner used the Jeep to tow his camper.
The oil and amp gauges aren't working properly, more than likely because of a faulty sender.
Small amount of rusting on rocker panel on both driver and passenger sides.
Small crack (which I repaired) in the dash.
I went from a base line 1987 2-door Jeep Cherokee, to a 1990 4-door Jeep Cherokee Laredo. With only $400 difference in the price I am very happy.
The seats are much more supportive and comfortable than expected.
The overhead console; with compass, temperature, front and rear map lights, and a storage compartment for both sunglasses and a garage door opener, is a nice feature.
Power windows and door locks are a very nice and welcome change.
Other features include a rear window wiper and defroster, fog lights, and the Sentry Headlight Switch; which automatically turns off the headlights 45 seconds after the Jeep is turned off.
With a Pioneer CD player, the 6-speaker sound system is quite impressive. It has just enough bass to keep me and my neighbors happy.
The engine is much more powerful and quieter than that of the '87. The Laredo package adds a lot of sound deadening material.
I'm 100% certain that the Select-Trac Full-time 4WD will be very appreciated in the winter months.
Bright chrome bumpers, mirrors, and grille are a very distinctive final touch to the rugged off-road character of the SUV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
