2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0 from North America
Great SUV for the money
Driver side seat vinyl is cracked.
This is my first SUV.
I am very surprised by its low end performance and handling. I think this is due to its relatively light weight.
It is a little noisier than what I am used to (my Maxima) I do hear a faint gear/drive-train whining noise.
The only comfort complaint I have is that it does not have a dead pedal to rest your left foot.
Gas mileage should be better for what it weighs.
Overall, I really like the Cherokee. It has nice, clean design. I just added 17" wheels and tires, which makes it look even better!.
I don't think I would have bought any other SUV. It was either the Cherokee or another car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The reason the Jeep vehicles have that "faint noise" in the drive train is not because of design flaws or potential problems. Jeep used to be a major military supplier during World War 2 until the early 1980's. Jeep still uses thier old technology in thier engines, the only thing they have really done was take the old fashioned engine and drive train and incorporated it with new technology and mixed it all together. The fact that thier engine and drive train stay the same is because it has been proven time and again in 3 major wars and Jeep has never failed. They were designed to go under decades of hard use and still stay in operational shape. I see many Jeep Cherokees from the late 80's still operating at 300,000 miles on them. Super high mileage for any Jeep is a typical life span for them.
