2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0 from North America
A good vehicle, so far
The vehicle developed a shimmy at 6K miles. It turned out to be a bent wheel rim. It was repaired for free by the dealer, and this after "breaking it in" by driving from Tucson to Todos Santos, Baja California del Sur, Mexico.
At 15K the clutches in the rear-end turned to garbage as the rear end was not set up properly at the factory. Replaced under the warranty by the dealer.
Other than being a bit cramped in the seating department, I like it. At San Quitin, BC, the Sport pulled a Bronco 4X4 out of the sand (it was bogged to the frame) with zero problems.
It cruises at 75 MPH with no strain, and the ABS and some fancy steering saved my bacon near Mulege, BCS where I almost got into a head on with some guy driving on the wrong side of the road. Maybe he was English.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I purchased a used 1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport in 2002 and have to say that I love it. It has been totaled twice since I purchased it, once when my mother was rear ended at a stop light, and once when my brother hit a patch of black ice and flipped it. As of today it is still going strong with a little over 211,000 miles on it. Minus a few nicks here and there it is over all one of the best Jeeps I have ever driven.

My name is Ray Monel. I am always on the road with my 1993
Jeep Cherokee Sport. It runs like itself.
Indeed, there is only ONE JEEP!
