General Comments:

These are the only 2 problems I have had with my Cherokee. I bought it used in Feb. 2003. I don't understand how others can rate this fine automobile as anything other than exciting... or even outstanding. I will buy another Jeep in the future, if Jeep ever brings back the Cherokee Sport line.

Summary:

Incrediable SUV, An Absoulute Dream

Faults:

This is a very interesting story. I found someone selling this Jeep, test drove it, and loved it. I purchased it a few days later and drove it home, and then went to go out that night in it and it wouldn't start. The initial frustrations filled my mind about getting conned, but after having the Jeep towed to a Jeep Mechanic, I found that the Crank Sensor was bad, and after spending a total of 200 dollars to replace it, the Cherokee has ran great.

The speaker in the drivers door was not functioning, but after taking the panel off, I merely found that one of the wires had come off of the wiring harness, and a quick soldiering job fixed that problem.

The only upgrade I have done was to put a new CD player in to upgrade from the stock tape deck.

General Comments:

I absouletly love this Jeep. I couldn't of been happier with any other vechical. The room in the back is great with the passanger seats down, and I transport stuff that my friends can only dream would fit in their cars.

The capabilities of this car are great, with a very powerful six cylinder engine with great speed and acceleration.

Handeling is a dream, and driving this car is very comfortable. It doesn't feel big or hard to handel. The design allows almost full vision all around the car, and it is very responsive.

Offroad the Jeep dominates, and I have gone places that I wouldn't even consider going to in any other vehical.

The interior has a very nice and easy to use layout, and the seats are quite comfortable.

I have fallen in love with this car, and even with close to 90000 miles on it, I feel as though it is built strong and in it for the long haul.

I love my Jeep. The ride is great. I am especially pleased with the gas mileage I get on the road. The only problem I have is with the tail lights. I am wondering if you know of any unusual problems anyone else has had.

Summary:

Chrysler turned the Cherokee into a crappy product

Faults:

The passenger-side window regulator failed at 40,000 miles.

Left front wheel bearing assembly replaced at 42,000 miles.

Left and right front bearings replaced at 59,000 miles.

Left front wheel bearing assembly needs to be replaced now.

Track arm had to be replaced at 59,000 miles.

Right rear door latch has stopped working. Dealer can't locate and fix problem.

General Comments:

My previous vehicle was a 1988 2-wheel drive Jeep Cherokee that had 180,000 miles when it was traded in for current vehicle. That Cherokee was used for 6 years to tow and launch a 4,000 lb. boat. I wanted to upgrade to more comfort and power options. Big mistake.

Wheel bearings are an expensive replacement and they are sealed units that can't be serviced.

Summary:

Not worth the money

Faults:

Air conditioner went after three (3) years.

Automatic transmission went after 78,000 miles. Transmission was always noisy and clunking when shifting.

Rarely used auto-window went after 3 years.

Brakes do not really grip well on the rear brake drums.

Auto fan's failure to kick-in caused overheating. Dealer could never resolve this problem. Banging on the relay box would cause the fan to come on.

General Comments:

I bought the 2000 model with right-hand drive. It was designed for mail delivery.

The vehicle has a continuous velocity fan and an electronic cooling fan for the transmission.

It turns out that air conditioning usage was not possible without the electronic fan's use which, as aforementioned, would not turn on without banging on the relay box.

The rear passenger seat is too low for comfort and back support. Apparently, it was designed that way so that it could be folded down for extended cargo space.

Cargo space is great.
