1989 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4.0 Liter 6 cylinder from North America
One tough as nails truck
The steering gearbox at 99,000.
The water pump had a small leak at 110,00 replaced before it went.
Alternator at 145,000.
Rear brake cylinders at 152,000.
You cannot get this rig stuck. Mud, ice, snow, and sand it handles them all.
Extremely easy to fix, and parts are relatively cheap.
Makes up for the gas mileage (17cty/21hwy) with its sheer reliability and cheap parts.
Engine still feels as strong as day one, transmission still has no whine in it. Even though the rig spend 100k towing a large boat.
Jeep has got my loyalty, would only trade it for another Cherokee or a Wrangler.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Its awesome that it is still in good working order. My dad just gave me a 1989 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. It has got some problems.. Such as the e-brake is broken, that's minor. Hole in the oil pan, Which I heard that this happens to all Jeeps.. And it overheats in 60 + degree weather. If you've got any idea on this overheating problems, can you help me out?..email me at email@example.com, It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
