Summary:

Fine, fine little truck!!!

Faults:

While hauling a u-haul van last year moving from Vancouver Island to Watson Lake, Yukon, the Jeep engine light came on occasionally ... stopped in at Fort Nelson and got a quick comment from a mechanic ... he said no worries ... just and exhaust volume issue... ran fine all the rest of the Alaska Highway.

General Comments:

Fine vehicle!

I have done regular maintenance on my jeep all the years I have owned it... I have lived in Canada's north and near north and this jeep has taken me EVERYWHERE I wanted to go - off road and on... cattle country, the southern mainland and rainy island, the mountains, and mining country and creek beds were easy-peasy for my two sons and I... we slept in it, drove it constantly, and all I have replaced are the universals, the brakes, shocks, put on new tires when I needed them, and tightened down the head bolts a few years ago when I saw some oil on the engine. I do regular maintenance and keep it clean inside and out. It repays me with trouble-free driving on short and long hauls. I am just headed out for a journey back to the island and then to the Peace River country. I have no doubts about my jeep carrying on for a few years yet.

I noticed a small crack in my dash yesterday - gonna fill that in with some vinyl repair goop tonight (land of the midnight sun - good time for that kind of work is late in the evening when the sun is really low) Oh yeah, I had to arrange a spot weld on the wiper motor - it needed a little jag last summer - snapped off - but it is fine - my son just zapped it back into place at school in the auto shop! Did I say I love my Jeep?

My jeep gets an A+++++. British Columbia's and Yukon's winters have been the greatest tests for my jeep - snow is not a problem - this little 4x4 goes anywhere.

The paint is starting to fade now; got a bit of surface rust going on... looks like I may need to consider leaf springs and that darn catalytic converter soon...

Maybe the guy spinning wheels on the lawn needs some cool, over-sized knobby tires and a creek bed or mine road to play on instead of his front lawn!

Love my jeep!

Previous carJeep Cherokee

Summary:

Have gotten my money's worth!

Faults:

Ignition coil died at 66,000 miles.

Bad connection for oxygen sensor on mother-board. When really hot out, "check engine" light goes on. Shop replaced oxygen sensor 3 times b/4 they figured it out.

Doors sag, creating extra interior noise.

FM and cassette went out at 120000 miles.

Front brakes were replaced (Warranty) at 40,000 miles and again at 80,000.

Lot of small oil leaks, but lasts until next oil change.

Switching into 4WD is okay, but getting back out is sticky and takes a good bump.

General Comments:

After rear shocks died, have not been able to find a good replacement set for under $300.

Loses 3-5 mpg when towing a pop-up camper, but it never gets stuck anywhere.

The rear seats don't have a lot of room, but the fronts are adequate.

Mostly standard stuff... but had the ignition switch, water pump, catalytic converter, headlight switch, air conditioning... and now at 235,000 the right wheel bearing and U-Joints...

Really this has been a great. It has never left me stranded. Which says a lot for 235,000! Not the most quiet vehicle, but it's a Jeep.
