Dependable with the 4.0 liter engine
Changed water pump (bad bearing) at 138,000 miles.
Paint is peeling.
The Jeep Cherokee XJ is a great SUV with a great 4.0 liter engine. It also has a good automatic (AW4) transmission. It's not that flashy, nor is it ergonomically friendly inside, but it's a Jeep - what do you expect. I haven't had any problems with it.
Also, there's a lot of XJs around, so there's a lot of used and aftermarket parts for it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
