General Comments:

I bought my Country after getting a Wrangler stuck in the snow on a test drive.

I took the Country to the same snowbank and now after four years of trying to get it stuck in all sorts of places, have yet to succeed.

I've driven it places that I wouldn't be able to hike to, towed things, pulled trees down, and picked up people stranded by their newer high-end SUV's during snowstorms.

This car will go absolutely anywhere I care to go, and it has never let me down. I truly love it.

My only concern as you can see from the list above is that it will nickel and dime me to death.

None of these trips to the mechanic are what I would consider a cheap fix.

After each, my mechanic tells me that the car is in great shape, but a few months later, I find myself dropping it off again.

You're not going to blow anybody's doors off with this car, and the interior is a little austere by today's standards.

But it's utility and control more than make up for its lack of flare.

Visibility is fantastic through the big, non-tinted windows, but it's an oven when you park it in the sun.

The manual transmission gives you added response, coupled with stiff shocks and tight steering. You never struggle for control as you do in newer SUV's marketed for comfort.

The turning radius is commendable for the wheelbase, and it handles much smaller than it is.

In all, if you are the slightest bit attentive in your driving, this is a very safe car.

I'll keep this car until it quits and I know it will always do what I ask of it.

Previous carSubaru XT

Summary:

A very reliable, low maintenance truck

Faults:

My water pump failed around 180,000 kilometers, which caused the fan belt to come loose and wrap around the radiator fan axle. Repairs were inexpensive, approximately $250 for parts & labor.

I had to replace the oil in both differentials at 185,000 kilometers.

The washer fluid tube for my rear wiper has a hole in it, and doesn't spray the window anymore. Now it sprays back onto the car behind me. It's actually kind of fun.

General Comments:

This is a vehicle that I'm going to keep forever. I love my Jeep, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

The 4x4 is an excellent feature to have, especially for a vehicle that is so small and maneuverable.

Summary:

An awesome piece of 1993 excellence

General Comments:

My jeep is very rare for a manual and it still maintains its integrity, being a very very limited model of the vehicle.

It takes turns and has all the power necessary to perform. 4X4 is crazy, but the back doors would be a little hard to enter if you're a small person.

Actually, if the person is small, they will have an easier time getting into the back of a Jeep. Its the tall people who suffer. I own a Liberty and have this problem. It seems to be common in the Cherokee and the Liberty because they are almost the same. The Wrangler has no back doors, and the Grand Cherokee is longer, therefore they don't have this problem. It doesn't bother me at all. I mean really, how often do you ride in the back of your own car?? I NEVER let anybody drive my Jeep, no matter what. I think it's actually kinda funny listening to my friends cuss and swear and say they will never own a Jeep just b/c of that reason, then when I take them off-roading, they have a completely different attitude towards Jeep and want to run out and buy one that afternoon lol.
