1991 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4.0 H.O. V6 from North America
Out of the four cars I've owned this is by far the best
When I first purchased the car it had 230xxx on it. Water pump went bad and the serpentine belt snapped the day after I had bought it. Luckily I had a warranty on it and these parts were covered. 20xxx miles later (250xxx) starter went out and left me stranded in a different city.
Headliner sags and has some holes, but for 16 years old its still a heck of a deal.
Rear power window motor is going out. it rolls down, but needs help up.
My Jeep has 250xxx miles on it. Everyone thought I was crazy for buying it with such high miles, but I did my research and don't regret any of it.
Gas mileage isn't too bad, I've had the entire fuel system cleaned and I get about 20 mpg in the city.
It's the fastest car I have ever owned and its great for camping.
Another thing that I love about my Jeep is that I was hit by a drunk driver one night, and in the end the other persons car was totaled and mine had a cracked windshield and the fender and hood were pushed in a little bit, but all of the lights still worked and I drove away.
When this jeeps time comes I will buy another one, probably from the early 90's yet again.
The jeep drives like a dream and even though you feel all of the bumps in the road, I'm usually the one pulling people out of the ditch in winter time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Just an update on my Jeep, it now has over 300,000 miles on it and running strong. The only thing I have had to replace lately were the brakes and the tires. It has developed a shake when I hit a bump and continues till I drop to about 45mph, I believe it is the rear end going out.
I might just turn it into a mud truck since I bought another car to get me back and forth to school. I bought a Ford Taurus, stupid me, do not buy one. I am moving to a Chevy Silverado so I will probably sell the Taurus and play with the Jeep. Seriously though, if you can buy one for cheap enough, get it.
