1996 Jeep Cherokee SE 4.0 from UK and Ireland
Excellent solid 4x4 and great fun off road
Water leak somewhere near the radiator on one of the hoses, but I'm finding it too awkward to reach and detect so filling the header tank each week is solving the problem so far. Plus this makes me check all the other levels so is proving a good habit maker.
The air conditioning has a leak so gas has escaped.
Temperature sensor is faulty, reading 0 degrees permanently (UK weather so maybe it's OK).
Noisy motor on the offside window.
Motor on the driver's chair reaching the end of its life.
Small blisters on the paintwork due to stone chipping, but nothing major.
I bought it with a gas conversion so the fuel economy is great value.
I dread to think what it would be like without as the 4.0 liter engine is a guzzler.
The gas tank has reduced the boot capacity and the cover is too flimsy to support any great weight so I built a shelf which has made a great difference to the shop run.
Great power for a big heavy car.
Interior is typical American - ie plastic rubbish, but the seating is quite comfortable and it has good views all round for parking etc.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
