2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L inline 6 from North America
Great vehicle for anyone who wants reliability
Front passenger speaker has a mind of its own.
Driver's speaker never worked.
Only the driver is able to control the windows.
Mainly minor electrical problems, and some clinking and clanging, but that's just about every car over 10 years old.
I love my Jeep, I'm a senior in high school, and it's a great first vehicle.
It's little rough on the wallet for gas, but it's worth it.
I drove through a foot of snow like it was no one's business. Up and down hills, it handled fine. I've been mudding with it, and it does not get stuck.
Great pick up and nice handling, no wobble in the steering wheel, and it's a comfortable ride in my opinion.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your problems with speakers and windows are common, but in most cases easy to fix.
Driver's side speaker is usually a corrode wire in the harness between the "A" pillar and the door; the passenger side door may be the same problem. Depending on the condition of your speakers, and assuming that they are still functional, all you would need to do is splice in some new wires.
The driver's side control module for the windows and mirrors, usually ends up with flaky solder contacts after years of use. I just replaced mine, instead of messing with trying to fix it. Maybe $70 for the new module.
Clunking could be many things, but with only 119K miles, it just might be suspension bushings.
