1988 Jeep Comanche Pioneer 4.0L in line 6 from North America
The most reliable vehicle I've ever owned!
The air conditioner blower motor stopped working in the first year.
The paint started fading out on the hood, roof and bed rails after about three years.
The gear shift indicator is off a half notch between drive and third.
I had to replace the head gasket at about 98,000 miles.
I converted the air conditioning to R-134 at 157,000 miles.
I had to replace the fuel pump at 157,000 miles.
The radiator had to be replaced at 148,000 miles.
The wiper motors do not distinguish between slow and fast continuous speeds.
I've had fewer problems with the Comanche than with the new 1998 Chevy Malibu I only had until recently.
The Comanche has a lot of pick up (pardon the pun) for a mid-sized truck.
The engine still runs as well as it did the day I bought the truck new in 1988.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My aunt's ex boss had a jeep comanche. With his permission, He let's us get in his Comanche. And every time just about. we get in it to take off the next time she start it, it die on us. and she tries to get it start back up again, but it didn't start until she pumped the gas to make it start. Other than that, that's not strange.

My old Comanche did the same thing I even replaced the hole fuel system and still nothing. So I took it to a dealer and it turned out to be one of the brain boxes. Ran fine till the day I sold it.

I dreaded replacing the fuel pump until I got under my '88 Comanche. The fuel pump loads from the side of the fuel tank, which makes changing the pump a breeze.
