After owning it for 17 years, I still love it
Engine had to be rebuilt at 60,000 -- thank goodness it was under warranty.
4-hi is a little noisy, but it works.
Rocker panel rust on both sides.
Otherwise, the usual expected things: air conditioning blower motor, alternator, tires, etc.
I still own this Jeep because it has been so reliable (except for the engine thing) and fun to drive. It has been off-road through snow dirt bike trail during the winters), mud, timber, streams... I drove 85 miles round trip to work with it for eight years. Except for the rocker panel rust, her paint still looks new, and the interior is in good shape.
She still gathers fans as different family members have driven it, and several teenage friends and family have wished/do wish to 'inherit' it.
Thanks to what a great vehicle this has been, we recently purchased a Grand Cherokee Limited.
The Jeep Cherokee Country should be a classic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
