A Utilitarian Champ!
I have replaced the fan belt due to normal wear.
I replaced all 4 tires and the spare due to wear and a defect. (NOT FACTORY TIRES)
Paint quality is poor. Clear coat peels prematurely.
Is this a great quality automobile? If you are looking for a daily driver with acceptable fuel economy (15-17) mpg, and need a 4WD for moderate off road use, you could not find more bang for the buck. The transmission is strong and the 4.0 inline six is just shy of indestructible.
If you are looking for great fuel economy and seldom leave dry pavement, you will be disappointed. Many station wagons can match its cargo and provide better economy and handling.
What you get with the Cherokee is a rugged no frills package with crude appointments. My wife's Hemi powered 2009 Limited is plush and extremely refined. We have yet however to take it to the beach or on any hunting trips. I did not purchase my 94 Cherokee for what it has, but more so for what it has not.
Check axles prior to purchasing used models as some have reported problems. I have had none.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
