General Comments:

You can expect some pains from such an old car, but not this many.

When it works I'd say it runs better than some other recent cars, which are mostly with cheaper build.

No pain - no gain.

I would probably still buy a more recent one. You feel safe in them.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am in love with this car



General Comments:

I have only owned this Jeep for about six months. In that time I have only had to put gas and oil in it. It runs like a champ both on and off road. Excellent for it's age. I can see getting another 200,000 thousand miles out of the engine and transmission.

These cars are good value for money if you can handle little breakdowns


Back differential bust, replaced with a more recent Cherokee back axle which is also a little bigger.

Fan clutch went, replaced with an electric fan which has also unladen some weight off the engine.

Power steering resorvoir cracked, leaving me without oil.

Minor vacuum leaks, solved easily.

Headliner is dropping, will replace it soon "do it yourself".

Air con leaks a little condensation inside, this happens to new jeeps to and doesn't really bother me.

The minor oil spot on the floor, which any car this age would do.

General Comments:

I really like this car, not too bothered about it's little faults which any old car would have. it drives smoothly, isn't too expensive, quite comfortable and gives you that feeling of driving something serious, safe and strong. very good for its age.

Wow you are very patient, if in just 9000KMS of owning a vehicle all that occurred to me I would be looking to bail on that truck. I have a 92 limited myself 4.0L AWD 4x4 309000KMS on the clock, so far so good I love it drives great. Coming from a back round of a Japanese vehicle driving family I must say I'm impressed by the feeling of my Jeep, very solid and secure! I'm still sceptical and still not trusting of American brands despite the Toyota transmission. I've had the Jeep 2 weeks, flawless up till now except while I was shifting from full time 4WD to 2WD the horn went off and didn't stop until I pressed the horn button. I hope that is not an indication whats to come, mysterious electrical problems. Definitely a classic vehicle of a different era. Nice truck.

I agree I purchased the same Jeep Ltd in Aug.08 with 89000 kl. on it for $200. Did a major tuneup and had no problems with the Jeep, and some have over 300.000. I should be able to enjoy this one for years.

A tough, reliable Jeep


Front shocks needed to be replaced

Needed to replace thermostat

Needed to replace radiator due to corrosion

Needed to replace breaks/ 1 break cylinder

Needed to replace drive-shaft universal joints and flange.

Needed to repair an engine mount (my fault)

For some reason I am unable to get the "Maintenance Required" light to turn off.

General Comments:

I have to start off by saying that, despite the extensive "gone-wrong" list, this is an excellent car, which happens to be my first car. All of the repairs I have had to make were not out of the ordinary for a car of this age, except for the engine mount, which I broke hitting a deep pot-hole. Despite being 12 years old, it still has more pick-up and go off the line then a lot of other cars on the road. This car is tough, durable, and very worth having. I'm told that Jeep makes a good product, and plan on running this as long as possible. At $1900, I think I caught a bargain.
