1988 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer 4.0L from North America
I absolutely love my Jeep, and will keep it forever!
I've replaced the water pump 4 or 5 times since 1988.
The heater fan has been replaced twice.
One window handle broke off.
The thermostat has been replaced twice.
The vinyl part of the drivers seat is worn, torn & scratchy.
The lock on the glove box is broken.
The rear windshield wiper has been "fixed" and now makes a screaming noise when it's turned on.
When I lived in a rainy area of Oregon, the Jeep was not in a garage and did not start many times due to moisture in the? Can't remember what the problem was.
When I bought this Jeep in October 1988, it had only 7 miles on it and I paid a total of $19,000 (with the finance charge etc.). It now has 367000 miles and still runs like a champ! I sure did get my money's worth from this vehicle!
I have not had the engine overhauled, and it runs beautifully!
I have never had transmission problems in 23 years -- and it's an automatic!
My Jeep and I are on the Daimler-Chrysler Wall of Fame in their main headquarters for reaching close to 200,000 miles. The Vice President called me and asked me for a photo & brief story and sent me gifts! Soon I will be contacting Chrysler Corp. to tell them about my Jeep reaching 400,000 miles!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
