2000 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4.0L I-6 from North America
Find something this car can't do and I'll give you a dollar
There is a rattling in the trunk area that increases in speed when at higher speeds. I still have no clue what it is, it may not even be defect.
The factory stereo system was nothing too special, but I installed an indash CD player and the sound quality improved exponentially.
I was expecting to be let down because I have been dreaming about getting a Cherokee for years and thought that the truck could never live up to my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it not only met my expectations, it exceeded them greatly.
There is nothing that this truck cannot do. It handles like a dream in snow and I have yet to meet a Washington DC pothole that it cannot take with ease.
The engine is worth it's weight in Big-Macs. I had five people (including myself) in the car and a load of camping gear and I couldn't even feel it on the hills.
The only drawback is that the 4.0L engine takes a lot to keep it going, this truck drinks like a Russian sailor, especially in four wheel drive.
Long story short: I pay more for gas than I ever though possible, but I wouldn't sell her for anything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree - but as far as the fuel usage problem is concerned - I spent 1K on an LPG conversion - now I have the choice of petrol or LPG - petrol performs better, but on LPG I drive it for a quarter the cost per mile! Great motor that deserves respect!
