A great vehicle!
Engine replacement at 28k. Cylinder bore was off and Chrysler replaced for free. Was a common problem, but technically not a recall.
Substantial water leak around driver side door. Mfg defect since I've had the truck.
Stock stereo died.
Rear wheel bearings replaced early - under warranty. No problems since.
Other minor problems not worth mentioning.
Generally, I like my Jeep. It's basic with no frills, but exactly my style. Yes, it has some problems, but mechanically it's sound for a vehicle with 130k miles. I plan to keep it until forever. I think Cherokee Sports from the early to mid-90s will be classics one day due to their edgy styling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
