1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport V6 4.0L from North America
It's expensive to own, but it pays for itself in many ways
My speaker on the front, passenger side does not work.
The screw for one of my door hinges came out. It was re-inserted, for free, by my mechanic.
My heating/cooling system does not work all of the time.
I found out from a friend, and the Internet, that the year of my car was recalled for rusting of the rotor. This is a problem because I live in the "salt belt". Now I have to check with the dealer to see if the rotors have been changed since the recall.
There are too many hiding spaces underneath the car for stray animals. Every Spring, my car purrs like a kitten before I turn on the engine.
When I got the car I was surprised by how fast it can go. Getting on and off Interstate-95 is no longer a challenge.
Because I can see the entire vehicle, parallel parking is easier than in car.
In the Winter of 2002, I parked on ice by accident. If I did not have 4 wheel drive, I would not have gotten off the ice. That season, I also got hit by someone driving an old Ford truck. There was very little damage to my Jeep.
The front of the Ford was badly damaged.
My sister also got into an accident in her Jeep Grand Cherokee. The car that hit her had to be totaled. Her car just needed the tail pipe re-attached.
Once, while driving, a car side-swiped my truck. I did not feel anything. In fact, I wondered why the driver of the car stopped in the middle of the street. It was not until the next morning, as I was getting into the my truck, that I saw small scuff marks and the slightly crooked plastic end cap for the bumper. All of the above is the reason why I only think about getting into car accidents when there is another Jeep around.
The best thing about my Jeep is when my nieces want to, "Step out in style." they park their car and ask to borrow my Jeep. I feel cool, even though I am getting older.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If the recalled rotors have been changed there will be a letter "S" on them.
My speaker does not work either.

My girlfriend has a 98 Cherokee, and loves it.
The only problem we have with it is, the passenger automatic window switch will only work when the weather gets below freezing, funny huh! I can't seem to find the problem. but it keeps me busy searching for it.

I have noticed that my windows and door locks only work if the doors are closed.
