22 years old with 225K miles

by Mofo80503 from Longmont Co | July 27, 2013

I bought this vehicle years ago for my son when he moved away to California. He eventually needed to get a new clutch, and wanted to get rid of the vehicle because he was afraid that he'd start getting nickle and dimed to death because of the age of the car. I Never really understood fully, the logic of paying a huge down payment followed by huge guaranteed huge monthly payments for several years instead of maybe occasional big repair payments that may or may not keep coming up. The reality is that, if you replace your rusted radiator with a brand new one, the new one will fail just at the same time as one in a brand new car. Enough about that stuff though. My Cherokee gets about 20 MPG city and 27 highway. My motor has over 225 K miles on it and the compression is 133PSI dead even in all 6 cylinders!! Pretty nutty! No smoke and very strong engine! The mileage tends to go way up in the summer and down significantly in the winter. I live north of the guy in Co Springs... Because of my engine, I'm going to keep putting money into the Jeep and keep her running. Over the past 5 years, I've given her a new clutch, radiator, stereo, battery, windshield, rear door spring/shocks, valve cover gasket, some electrical stuff in the steering column, a fuel pump. . She's about to get completely new disc brakes all around. She will also be getting a completely new exhaust system as this one is shot. The A/C does not work, and I'm not sure what to do about that because I like to be cool and freon is getting less and less available. Not to mention, my recharge only lasts one season. The tranny/transfer works beautifully, but I may go play some games with it and beef it up. The motor, as I said is very strong and doesn't smoke or make any noises at all. In summary, The car vehicle has exceeded all of my expectations far and away!!!

My baby

by I love my laredo from Michigan | July 28, 2012

I have a 91 cherokee laredo, white exterior, maroon interior. I received this as a first car about a year ago. It was in near showroom condition. When i first saw it first impressions were not good. Having no airbags i immediately decided the car would be my death. However, a week later we were inseparable. I absolutely love this car and would not trade it for anything. They are very heavy duty and tough while being quite comfy depending on the interior package you have. The handling is quite good and it blows through 6 inches of snow like nothing in 4 wheel drive. I have done nothing but some inexpensive preventative maintenance on it. After all, it is 21 years old. Overall, if you can find one that is in decent shape it is probably worth anything they are asking because these things go forever as long as you keep them maintained. I have never seen another one like it anywhere so i feel pretty exclusive behind the wheel. Very practical, fun, and i love it.

Classic 4.0L reliability and fun

by rewind from Crested Butte, CO | February 5, 2011

Obviously, the guy from Co Springs wasn't talking about the 37k actual mile gray one. I must live on a different planet. What does he expect to buy for $500???? You don't buy a 20 year old Cherokee for "comfort", "styling", or "Interior design". You buy one because they are reliable, predictable, and they increase in value if you take care of the.

1991 Jeep

by Bobbyo from colorado springs, co | March 12, 2010

I tested this car. Not worth the asking price, worth maybe $500.00, another $5-600 in repairs needed to get it road worthy. Transmission and lines show leaks, valve covers show oil, brakes are in desperate need of replacement (there's a grinding in the rear, could be the brakes or the rear differential) rear differential leaks, interior is extremely rough, drivers window is broken out and the windshield is cracked along the full length of the bottom. Would make a good car for parts or restoration only.

An Off-Road Classic, A suburban friend

by Denegri from Panama | November 13, 2008

The first time i drove a jeep cherokee i was surprised by how it really feels like a sedan. i tested the four door limited version, with power windows, power mirrors, rear window defroster, cruise control and leather seats. the 6 banger 4.0 HO engine delivers all the power you may need in almost any circunstance. the 4wheel system is easy to engage and you can do it while you are driving. the rear seats have little leg room and canĀ“t be adjusted, but you can accomodate 3 passengers back there if they aren't concerned with been packed. the cargo area is eaten by the spare tire, but the folding rear seats give enough space to carry your groceries. the car handles well, having a soft power steering. the breaks where my main concern, you have to step on the pedal to stop moving, but taking on account that is a 17 years model, its still a good ride. if you like outdoor living and need room for groceries, then this is the car for you. if you are looking for a daily driver, then the cherokee's gas performance is far from good.
