Summary:

Awesome on, and mainly off the road

Faults:

The AC compressor blew, weak fuel pump, rough idle when started cold, and that about it.

General Comments:

I love the thing. I love the Silverstone paint job and the stock 4X4 capabilities. I've gone through some super deep sand no problem that other 4X4 trucks have problems in.

Anyway, it's never gotten me stuck, and I use it off road at least once a month, either at the beach or the hill country.

The interior is simple yet functional. The seats are comfortable for short trips, but when the trips get over 4 hours, they get a little painful, but not bad.

Oh boy, let's talk about that inline 4.0. It's a beast. About 200 hp and 225 ft lbs, and the Jeep weighs in at about 3200lbs. Also, I added a K&N filter, which may have helped a little; this thing will go for an SUV. I've done over 115mph in it no problem (I'm guessing because the speedo goes to 100). If you punch it, it'll bark the tires most of the time.

Also, I did a little race from 0 to about 50mph against a 2006 F150 with the 4.6 V8, and he didn't stand a chance.

It's a real shame they quit making these on and off road wonders.

Summary:

Fool me once shame on me, fool me twice.

Faults:

AT 80,000 both drivers and passenger door motors went out, would not lock or unlock, windows grinded at top. Had both complete motors in doors replaced. Once the drivers side went the passenger side followed. Now low and behold the back hatch will not open. A/C went out, later that day, car started smoking as belt was burning. Could not drive it, had to be serviced with new air compressor before it could be driven safely. If is was not attached to the "major organs" I would have just not fixed the A/C. Not an option for the 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. Oh yeah, the other day I went outside and found my rearview mirror on the dashboard.

General Comments:

It reminded me of the commercial where the lady finally pays off the car and wonders when something will happen. Got to get rid of this piece of crap and go back to the most reliable car on earth: TOYOTA. Would still have that 91 camry if it had not been totalled. What a shame. Live and Learn. Just because a car had a rep before just means that the company tries to get by on rep, therefore skimping on the product overtime: JEEP. Newsflash: I took very good care of this care, it's a Jeep, not a rolls, Jeep can't take the heat!

Summary:

Rugged, but reliable

Faults:

A/C compressor replaced at 90,000 miles.

Evaporator went at 120,000 miles; never got it fixed.

General Comments:

I can't believe all of you complaining about the screeching at 5 miles an hour in a parking lot, thinking it is the steering. If you hadn't noticed, these Jeeps have solid axles in the front, and when you turn at slow speeds, the tires screech because of it, when parking, etc.

I have had my jeep for 176,200 miles, and haven't had many issues. It still has above average power, and it can tow a decent sized boat (with trailer brakes) still.

I have some small issues; the power window lock button doesn't work, so the windows can only be operated by the driver, the drivers side rear door doesn't open anymore, but they are all little things that I don't care to fix.

The fact is this is a very reliable SUV that is good for 200,000 miles at least. I challenge you to find another SUV with that kind of reliability and drivability. If you maintain a car well, it will last long, as simple as that.
