I just got a 2000 Cherokee with a 4.7 V8.

I am having problems with the electricals where the speedometer and the tach are. They do not respond to the vehicle at all.

I have a whining noise that is coming from the front driver side wheel. I suspect that it has something to do with the brakes, the axle, or the differential box. When I opened up the differential plug, I noticed that the oil was filled with metal shavings. Anyone with any idea of what it could be, please comment. Maybe we can solve this mystery...

Summary:

Reliable vehicle for the snow belt

Faults:

There have been no major problems with this Jeep. Minor problems have included power window cutoff switch failure, minor body rust, some front end vibration.

General Comments:

This has been a dependable vehicle to get around in, and it's great in the snow. We purchased this Jeep new. The gas mileage isn't the greatest, averaging about 16 MPG with the 6 cylinder. Some monor rust has appeared underneath the back windows where the drains are, the paint is blistering in some spots, but it still looks decent for being 7 years old and not babied. The inline 6 is loud, made louder by a loud fan and air conditioner compressor. The exhaust has always sounded like it was leaking on the passenger side, despite there being no holes anywhere. It's just a loud spartan sort of vehicle.

There was a front end vibration, solved with new tires and alignment, but the tires need to be rotated and balanced frequently. The serpentine belt has to be adjusted two or three times after being replaced or it will squeal, there is no spring loaded adjuster on it. The tilt wheel has barely any tilt to it, and a fuse box cover near the passenger's foot pops off all the time. These things I consider to be minor complaints.

It is fairly comfortable on long trips, as it's not so noisy at highway speeds, but even out on the highway the gas mileage does not get much better than the 16 MPG, and with gas over $3.00 a gallon now, it's getting to be a very expensive vehicle to run. But in all, our ownership experience with it has been satisfactory.

Summary:

My Jeep is great in "almost" every way....

Faults:

Horrible shaking between 45-55 mph.

General Comments:

This is my first Jeep, and although I knew they drove pretty rough, I definitely was not expecting to feel like a milk shake every time I drove it on the highway. Don't get me wrong, everything else about the Jeep I LOVE (always wanted one) but the shaking is absolutely horrible. I am sorry that others have encountered this problem, BUT I am so relieved to hear that I am not alone!! I've read a few different ways of "potentially" fixing this problem and I'm now on a mission... thanks to everyone's input to this site. Thanks and good luck with your Jeeps!!

Please; tell me if you fixed the shaking problem on the highways with your Cherokee.

I'm sorry to hear that. When you rotate your tires they need to be re-balanced. You have shaking at 50mph due to the fact that you have solid axles and the tire wear is different. High speed balance the tires and your problems will go away.

Faults:

Bought 2000 Cherokee Sport, with 155,000 miles last year. Very happy at first, it was well maintained and very clean. I lifted it 3 inches and put 31's on it. Just last week, I got a terrible vibration out of nowhere, and the jeep was uncontrollable. The tire marks looked as if I were turning the wheels back and forth as fast as I could at 50 mph!

The only way the vibration would stop was to come to a dramatic stop.

I replaced the steering stabilizer (dampner),with no results.

Any suggestions please let me know! Its to the point I'm worried to drive it.

The only way to fix the so called "Death Wobble" is to have your tires balanced. Due to the uni body construction tires will go out of balance frequently.

Don’t spend too much money on this problem. Just get your tires balanced!!!
