2004 Jeep Cherokee CRD Limited 2.5 turbo diesel


A serious 4x4 but expensive and fairly troublesome


Thermostat housing cracked.

2 separate back end leaks.

Shuddered badly when turning left or right from a junction.

General Comments:

Noisy harsh diesel engine from another era.

Parts are hard to obtain and very slow to arrive, even through the main dealer, and are also extremely expensive.

Manufacturers MPG figures of 31.7 are very optimistic. On an 150 mile drive averaging 60 MPH I just scraped 30 MPG.

This aside it does have some good points. It's very comfortable and well kitted out. It is well built and sturdy.

Offroad or in treacherous conditions it's no pretender.

It will tow anything or plough through the deepest snowbound roads without fuss.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
