I purchased my 1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo on December, 1989. Now with 180,000 miles and over 16 years old, it still runs and looks great. Keeping it garaged and changing oil every 3000 miles has helped keep it in great shape. All major components are original and still work well. The usual things like brakes, plugs, belts, etc, were replaced by me over the years. But overall, replacement parts & repairs have few and far between.
As a volunteer fire police officer, I have to go out under all kinds of weather, both on and off road. The Jeep has never failed me. I almost wish it would really break-down so I could buy a new One, but it looks like it going to be around for several more years. (It might outlast me-I'm in my seventies).

I bought my 1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo in 2000,for $2000 6 years later and it's still kickin, but not without some scraped knuckles, lets see... The headliner fell down, had a gas leak, blew a head gasket @ 135k, replaced valve cover and all hoses, serpentine belt, starter, rebuilt the motor, replaced Throttle Position Sensor, Crankshaft Position Sensor, almost all sensors... put on a Super -Ride Rubicon suspension, replaced the brake lines and the rotors, calipers, the rear brakes too... replaced electronic fuel sender and much much more, some Transmission something switch keeps it from starting...sometimes...I love my Jeep, but then again a coat of paint and some re-upholstery it would be almost new... when it starts!

I own a 1990 Jeep Laredo. Most of the time it runs like a charm, but the transmission slips in between first and second gear. A lot of people I know have this problem, but yet it doesn't do it all the time. I don't think the transmission needs to be replaced, but maybe a part of some kind in the transmission? It's an automatic.
Can you help? Thanks, Kassy.

I have owned my 1997 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo since 1999 and have never had anything of any expense or inconvenience go wrong with it. Our local jeep dealer is responsive to questions. I am often on call for surgery and being called in on winter nights has never been a problem, it is sure footed to drive and nice and warm to drive through the ice and snow. I promised it to my son when he turns 16 and that time is nearly here. I regret that promise, especially after trying out an x-5 BMW yesterday and only getting 30 miles before that developed problems. I was grateful to return that vehicle to the dealership after much stalling at red lights, got back in my jeep and left. I am going back to my jeep dealership and look at the new jeeps this week.

I have a 1990 Cherokee, and except for a steering column and a U joint in the front axle, it was the best $100.00 I ever spent.

I have a 1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. bought it in 2004 for $3000 and have done a lot of work on it, only because I love this thing and want to keep it going for another 20 years!
Replaced shocks, ball joints, tie rods, steering stabilizer, pads, rotors, calipers, shoes, drums, exhaust system, all new fuel injectors, fuel pressure regulator, starter, and probably some more I have forgot to list.
The next thing is the paint job because it has starter to flake on the roof and the hood, and rust is starting to show through. Other than that, and the fuel smell I keep having in the cab, I love the damn thing. 310000 km/s.

My parents bought me a 1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo for 1200 dollars in May of last year. I have put 3000 miles on it since then.
It now has 212,000 miles on it and it can still squeal tires. Oh, and the 4x4 rocks like a brand new one, and the transmission is still the original.
These are tough little Jeeps and they are awesome.

I own a 1990 Jeep Laredo. Paid 1500 for it in excellent condition. Only problem I've had is the steering column - sometimes the 4 wheel drive won't engage. Other than that, 267.000 miles on it and still running strong.

1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo.
On my 2nd engine and trans. New everything. Outside's a little rough. Close to 400,000 miles on body. Off road, I'm the guy who pulls you out when your stuck. On road I have more horsepower then Blazers and Hondas.
Worth all the money and time.
Get one, they're smart buys that go and do anything.
