I bought this car on an as seen basis at the roadside, without it being started up as the battery was flat. After a jump start and a drive home of 5 miles, I thought my worst fears were coming true. However, when my mechanic got to grips with the vehicle, bingo, I had struck gold.
I paid £750 for this car, and it's now everything I dreamed of.
I know the fuel consumption is poor, but this is offset by the driving experience and comfort. I also know that it will be heavy on maintenance costs, but was aware of this before purchase.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I would like to have one of these Cherokees also, but in 4.0 litre guise, which is the only decent engine that can be had in them, other than the diesels, which are anything but decent. I just could not afford the high teens or very low 20s MPG that they are just about capable of achieving. Even if I could find an LPG converted one, they would still be too heavy on juice to afford to run. That's a shame as I really like the nice "not over the top" classic rugged American styling, which has long since gone.
