1993 Jeep Cherokee Limited V6 from North America
Eh, its okay
My mother bought this Jeep for me July of 2006. As of then, a lot has gone wrong. The alignment is all wrong, the brakes had to be replaced, the coolant level was always low. Yesterday I noticed it was leaking every time I shut the car off. The rear 4x4 axle leaks. The tires were bad when I bought the car. The alignment problem isn't helping them what so ever. This Jeep is VERY hard to start on cold mornings or when it sits for more than 2 hours. The power antenna is loud. The whole 4x4 system went wrong. I have to keep it in 4 wheel drive all the time, if I put it in 2 it squeals loud. The driver's side rear door window motor went out and window came off track so I super glued it shut. The driver's side door sometimes comes "loose." The gas mileage is very terrible. 16-17 MPG on average. There is rust that sometimes falls right off the car. The trunk door does not lock. I could go on and on...
I loved this car when my mother first bought it for me. I thought it was a cute SUV. Of course, I wasn't thinking of the gas mileage and problems I would be having in the future. I am trying to talk my parents into getting me a smaller more fuel efficient vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What do you expect at this age and mileage?

They are in general very good vehicles; unrefined, but good.
If you don't travel much the 'bad' fuel consumption of the 6 won't show much. Heck it burns as much as a big minivan, especially in the city. The good thing is there's quite the torque to it, so 1200-1500 rpm should be enough unless you go fast. Keep it below 2000 rpm most of the time and you won't fill up so often.
Rusting is normal; again the good part is that they're built like tanks. Just got one today, having leased/rented them when they were new/newer.
Theres a good 2 mile hill to reach my place, steep as fudge too. Not one issue, always below 1500 rpm. This is with the 4x4 on since it's icy/lotsa snow on the ground. Not one fuss.

You can't say anything bad about this vehicle as you know nothing about its maintenance history.

You cannot complain that the alignment is off as if that has anything to do with the manufacturing or reliability of the car itself. And brakes need to be replaced regularly on any vehicle.
