This is the best vehicle I have ever owned.
The front axle u-joints were bad when I purchased the vehicle. I have had them replaced twice. The second time was due to a bad part.
I replaced the entire driver's side wheel hub assembly.
The rotors were warped badly.
The engine blew at 148,000 miles.
The driver's seat was off the track and the passenger seat has been welded into place, apparently by the previous owner.
The front shocks needed to be replaced.
The tires needed to be replaced (dealership put the wrong size on the rims).
The muffler needs to be replaced.
My Cherokee Sport has been nick named "Bessie" by my mom.
This is the car that made me fall in love with the SUV. I'm a tall girl and small cars are very tiny on the interior. I love the fact I have plenty of room inside, sit up off the ground, and the windows allow me to see everything around me. I absolutely adore the boxy look, and the color is outrageous: Teal.
In the winter, the four wheel drive is great for hopping over the snow.
I blew a gasket the summer of 2003 and that in turn blew the engine. I had 148,000 miles on it (give or take) at the time. I put had a used engine dropped in it that fall, which doesn't even have 80,000 miles on it. I'm about to replace the muffler and give it a real drive from Detroit to California in about a week. My mechanic is confident the trip will be made fine.
My only complaint is on long drives the seats aren't terribly comfortable.
However, I love this car and will be thrilled to pieces to see the speedometer flip at the 200,000 marker.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
