General Comments:

This car is awesome, and drives nice.

It has never let me down, and I never get stuck.

It has started on -13 degree days and I have driven it on long trips without it over heating.

It has great handling and if you need a 4x4, by a Cherokee.

This Jeep is also great at hauling horse trailers, campers, and whatever else I need to tow around.

This Jeep has been great since I bought it.

Summary:

It really puts the

Faults:

New water pump at 105000km.

New front axle u-joints at 87000km.

New transfer case seals at 95000km.

Front pads and rotors last approx. 40000 to 50000 km.

New exhaust from the cat. converter on back at 75000km.

New fuel pump at 90000km.

ABS Brake problems at 115000km.

General Comments:

My Jeep has served me well, primarily in the harsh Canadian winters when I use it the most.

These vehicles require a higher than normal amount of maintenance, and you have to stay on top of it or things will go wrong fairly quickly.

Fuel economy is poor, but on the other hand power is excellent, no problem passing other vehicles.

The interior is nicely done, and the leather seats fit like a glove. My Jeep has a lot of squeaks and rattles, but I don't even notice them anymore.

If you have a choice, avoid the models with the Bendix ABS brake system, it can be expensive to repair and the pedal effort is on the high side. Some of the parts have a lifetime warranty however.

The engine is very reliable, never had a problem with it. Most older 4.0L engines get noisy with time, suffering from "piston slap" or noisy valves, but this has no impact on reliability or performance.

With the rear seat folded down, lots of cargo room is available. When hauling people however, the back doors make entry and exit difficult.

All in all, a great vehicle for those who keep up with regular maintenance.

You will continue to have problems with the ABS. The pump motors are no good and the wheel sensors rust. To replace them you have to replace the axle shafts.

Summary:

Good basic vehicle

Faults:

I've replaced the water pump, radiator.

It needed a new exhaust system in order to pass the safety.

Most recently, the harmonic balancer had to be replaced (at 275000 km). The balancer had slipped, causing the belt to be shredded by the fan.

General Comments:

Good reliable vehicle, although some unexpected repairs did cramp my budget somewhat. I commute to work about 170 km everyday, so there is a lot of mileage that builds up. I have the oil changed every 5 weeks.

General Comments:

I've owned this car for 12 years and apart from general wear & tear, it has served me well. Engine remains powerful, 4WD still works great and the styling although boxy, still has its appeal.

I'm also happily surprised about how well, it has retained its value through the years.

All in all, no regrets on this Jeep!

Summary:

The best choice in a compact sport utility

Faults:

Universal ball joint had to be replaced.

Driver seatbelt ripped and had to be replaced.

Needed a new oxygen sensor.

Brake light failed twice in two weeks.

FM Radio is always on the fritz, very annoying.

Some of the speakers are blown.

If you unlock the vehicle from the driver door, the alarm goes off.

General Comments:

Overall, a very reliable vehicle that is fast, and fun.

Interior has held up well over 160,000 miles.

The ride is uncomfortable and the road noise is very intrusive. Anything upsets the suspension.

We still love our Jeep and want to upgrade to a Grand Cherokee. Very happy with the vehicle.
