First off, I'm a Jeep fan only. I do not like Mopar, but technically I'm a fan as well (Jeep is mostly Mopar).
Upon purchasing the vehicle dealer replaced: power antenna, rear lift gate shocks, and driver's side seat belt.
Within one one after purchase, the dealer paid Ammco for a transmission rebuild. I became alarmed when the transmission began shifting back and forth from second to third. Ammco discovered metal shaving were already in transmission pan. Now, it still doesn't shift quite right. It tend to stay in second a bit longer than it needs to.
About a month after the transmission, the air condition began blowing warm. Took it back to be serviced and my warranty company replaced the exhaust manifold (cracked), A/C compressor, and dryer.
Leather steering wheel is in absolute horrible shape, leather seats are in very good shape for its age.
With engine being completely stock I am getting reasonable gas mileage on the highway (21MPG @ 75MPH, 23MPG @ 60MPH). City gas mileage significantly less fruitful (average 16-17MPG). Engine is very torque rich, but accleration is less than expected. Despite my negatives, the straight six is by far the best engine choice (a V8 was also offered). Ask any mechanic, the I-6 is a workhorse engine that without doubt will go 200,000+ miles (this is biggest reason why I purchased).
Handling is good compared to similar sport utility vehicles. Vehicle has perhaps the best ground clearance in its class.
Options and features are incredible for the price! In 1995 this vehicle offered quite a few options that were difficult to find (heated side mirrors). The car almost drives itself for you.
This is my worse vehicle investment so far. My best after-market investment is by far the extended warranty. The transmission rebuild was $2,000, and compressor/ exhaust manifold replacement ran to $1700. In comparison my warranty was $899 (3yr/36) with no repair deductibles!
