Summary:

This car is loveable

Faults:

I've quite recently bought the car, and the main problem so far is the rust in the floor pans, but during this summer I'm going to deal with that.

I have the classical piston slap, but from what I hear, that's trivial and nothing to worry about.

Besides that, the car has a noise in the rear axle and the consumption of fuel is a bit too high (taken into consideration that an American gallon of gas in Norway costs close to $10).

General Comments:

This old Cherokee has a timeless appealing design.

To start with, it felt like a truck to drive, but I soon got used to that, and now it feels OK.

Parts are extremely expensive in Norway. Therefore I import them directly from US and pay less than 1/4 of Norwegian prices.

I'll do my best to keep this car forever.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
