1991 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L Strait Six from North America
One hardcore machine, that won't ever quit
I twisted off two drive shafts, the engine likes to run hot, there are a lot of weird noises that it makes inside and out. I have rolled it once, there is a knock in the engine that started around 160,000mi. The front U-Joints need to be replaced, all four shocks are blown, the rear leaf springs are completely useless. I've replaced three doors (due to stupid mistakes),and there are many stains on the front seats. oh one more, I had to replace the rear glass from jumping it too high.
All in all I just can't get enough out of my little XJ, she never quits. I have been in many off-road situations where she came through for me (like wheeling off road using only the front drive shaft, cause the rear one broke)
I'm just waiting for the Motor to die, but I thought that at around 160,000 miles and she just won't quit.
Besides getting only 17mpg on average, and frequent oil changes, this little jeep has driven me to the end of the earth and back, looks like she could very well do it again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
