General Comments:

The car is a BEAST.

Over 300K miles and still rolling.

Engine is very easy to work on.

Great in the snow and mud.

Not a speed demon, but handles well.

A little road noise, but a decent stereo with the volume on low covers it up well.

One tough little rig!


Radiator thermostat blew at about 118,000 miles.

Brakes needed to be replaced at 130,000 miles.

General Comments:

This Jeep takes a beating and keeps on running.

It's not the most comfortable ride around, but that's part of the appeal.

I love my Jeep its the best truck I have ever owned or had the pleasure of driving.

It has a few little problems, but nothing serious. Personally I like it's ruggedness, if you want a leather clad luxury car get a Cadillac. Not a true SUV like this one.

JEEP there is only one!

1992 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4.0liter police intercepter from North America


The best s.u.v. ever built


The plastic over the passenger door broke.

The carpet is a little stained.

The police department drilled a hole in the a-pillar to mount a spot light.

The front bakes locked up around 153,000 miles.

The ground wire to the throttle position sensor broke the day I bought the truck.

General Comments:

I love this Jeep, it has been the best truck that I have ever owned.

Ever since the purchase of this jeep I've found excuses to go to the mountains, to the hunting camp, or just for a short trail ride near the house.

This truck has never let me down when I needed a little power for a big mud hole or towing the boat to the lake.

The one advantage I have over the other jeep owners is that my jeep has no emisions control due to the fact it was a police vehicle once upon a time, so there's power on tap for hiway speed, but you can stop on a dime when needed to due to the fact that they are using direct manifold vacuum for the brake booster.

1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L from North America


Does it all... again, and again, and again...


The windshield wiper motor died at 185,000 miles and was replaced.

The low speed on the intermittent wiper switch stopped working at 205,000 miles, but the other speeds still work fine.

The valve cover developed a small crack at 180,000 miles and was replaced.

General Comments:

The 4.0 L in-line six cylinder engine will run for ever provided a regular maintenance schedule is followed. Change the oil every 3,000 miles, and have the transfer case, transmission, and axles serviced every 30,000 miles, and these vehicles will outlast their owners.

I love to use my Cherokee off-road, and my Jeep has never gotten off easy. From day one, I have used it on trails all over the east coast in everything from door-deep mud holes and fast-flowing icy rivers, to rock climbing to surf fishing and sand dune running. Today, with 211,000 miles, I still use it just as hard and it has never let me down.

I have used it to tow a friend's full size Ford F-150, and another friend's full size Yukon. The straight six is a very torque happy engine, and never seems to run out of low end grunt. This also gives the engine a very flat power band, so whether you are idling over a boulder or cruising down the highway at 85 miles an hour, there is power on tap.

The Cherokee is small enough to whip around, and handles pretty well for a vehicle with solid front and rear axles. It is simplistic in design, but that is why they run forever and can handle abuse that would have other vehicles in the junk yard in a hurry.

Due to the indestructible nature of Cherokees, a new racing series has been started called Jeep Speed. These are largely stock Cherokees with a roll cage and any regular after-market lift kit, running around the desert like race trucks. It is a real series, and can be seen at www.jeepspeed.com. No other vehicle could take this kind of abuse with a factory set up.

If you want a truck that will show up your friends off-road, get you to any trail, down it as far as you can stand to go, and get you home again, then take you to work and back and school and back, pick up the dog from the groomer, take your friends on snow-boarding trip with all their gear... you get the point. My Cherokee does it all, and is the most reliable car I have ever heard about, driven, or seen. I even went out and bought two more, with a third in the works.
