2000 Jeep Cherokee CRD 2.5 from UK and Ireland
The car is a pile of dung
Well, where does one start?
About six months ago I picked up my 2001 Jeep Cherokee. The dealer gave me a good price, or so I thought at the time. Fair play, he told me that the manifold gasket needed replacing, and allowed for that by way of reducing the price by 500 euros. Little did I know that I had bought a pile of dung. Next thing was the rocker head gasket, costing more money.
Now not much more than four thousand miles later, I had to have a new clutch fitted.
Just yesterday a coolant problem: I put it in, and it seems to be pouring out the overflow, and the coolant warning light comes back on not long after I refill it. From what I've seen here, I'd say my problem is much worse than that, so it's back again to the garage at the weekend. If the head gasket's gone, I don't know what I'll do.
Absolute disaster. Period.
I always liked the cool look of the Cherokee and Wrangler Jeeps, but have been left very disappointed with so many faults, costing so much money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
