Get a Libby from an other dealer next time and you will be happy again, great car and build quality is much, much better than the old Cherokee.

Seems to me it isn't the Jeep that's at fault.
1) you bought it used, likely without knowing its history
2) it had quite a bit of mileage on it when you got it.
3) from your description is seems like the vehicle was not very well cared for.
4) you may have done a poor job of inspecting the vehicle prior to purchase (most of the issues would be readily identified in a decent inspection).
Jeep Cherokees are solid vehicles built on a platform that has endured for more than 15 years with only minor changes. If you want to avoid a mistreated vehicle, next time just bring the used vehicle to an inspection station for a once over. It'll cost you $30 or so and it's well worth it. If the owner refuses to let you have it inspected, walk away.

I agree, never again would I buy this kind of Jeep. It does strange things and no one can seem to find anything wrong with it. Parking my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland at a shopping center when suddenly the Jeep accelerated, jumped the curb and wiped out a large concrete planter and knocked down a light pole. The brake would not override the acceleration.
How many more lives have to be taken before Chrysler will step up to the plate and look into the situation. Regardless of how many have complained, it should be enough to offer quality customer service. Step up to the plate Chrysler and do your job.

First of all the Jeep Cherokee is a very solid vehicle.
If you have one with the 4.0 liter inline six, you've got one with a superb engine.
Secondly, when you are buying ANY used vehicle you are taking a chance. I would suggest that you have any used vehicle thoroughly checked out before buying it. If you don't have the expertise to check it over yourself, bring it to a mechanic that you know & trust.
Finally, it is one thing to state what problems you have with a vehicle. It is another thing to blame the manufacturer when you purchased the vehicle used.
