I wish I could buy this same model new again, it was that good
General distances only.
Check engine light on dash at 80,000 km for emission.
90,000 km new tires (saved rears).
100,000 km tailpipe replaced (replaced 2 times again under lifetime warranty of same shop). New tailpipe approximately 150,000km old :)
First set brakes at 110,000 km normal wear.
130,000 km master cylinder replaced.
160,000km replaced right front wheel bearing.
180,000 new tires (saved rears)
Clutch replaced at 200,000 km.
Water pump replaced at 210,000km.
240,000 km replaced all 4 tires with an old set I had saved (have approx 60% tread life on them)
286,000 km and the left front brake dragging a bit, so I have to go attend to it (I love this Jeep and I would buy a new one, but they just don't make this model anymore)
The drive train has been exceptional on this vehicle. Though the engine has some blow by, it still burns no visible oil.
Emission tests have gotten better as this vehicle has gotten older; believe it!
The body is as solid as the day I bought it, though the paint is now well aged. It was garage kept 14 years out of 17.
The interior has worn like iron, after 3 kids grown to adults. It is still in great shape.
The vehicle still turns on a dime; best turn radius ever for parking etc.
Used this Jeep for pulling loads of firewood and hauling my boat, and the in-line 6 has plenty of power.
All in all, after 286,000 + km, this vehicle has far surpassed my expectations for its usefulness, and it still is going strong (Thanks Jeep)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
