1989 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4.0L inline-6 from North America
With the 4.0L, it's a poor man's Cummins diesel
Replaced 3 water pumps, 2 starters, 4 serpentine belts, 3 radiator recovery bottles, and front left brake hose.
Also sunroof leaks badly, which has ruined the headliner.
Two of the four power windows don't operate.
This vehicle is the very best driving experience since I got my license at 15.
The cabin is a classic traditional environment with full instrumentation, meaning a six gauge cluster vs. today's typical four gauge clusters.
The engine and drivetrain are the best especially the transmission. The AW-4 automatic since I've owned it has been trouble-free. It was made to handle some larger engines exceeding the 4.0L.
The engine is as powerful as some smaller V8's, and gets decent fuel economy. I typically get around 23-24 on the highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
