She's a keeper!

I purchased my 99 Cherokee, new. She is 25 years old and just, a couple of years ago I had a hose brake and them a new radiator. Last week went thru a bad storm on the freeway, some much water, I could fill it hydroplaning, but she kept steady. Once vacationing in the mountain, in June, it started to snow. The next morning it was still snowing, so we packed up to go My jeep is not a four-wheel drive. Some other people were leaving too. We were the only ones to get up the road, everyone else couldn't make it. I love this car. Almost replaced it but just can't. Oh ya, she only has 137000 miles.



I bought a 1998 Jeep Cherokee in Oregon a little over a year ago, and the next week threw as many of my belongings as I could fit into her (which with the back seat down was a lot!), left just enough room for my dog, and drove the 2,000+ miles almost to the southern tip of Baja. The jeep was perfect! These old beasts are as reliable and safe as you can get. Most of my friends thought I was nuts as a 72-year-old woman driving alone to and through Mexico but I knew Roxie (my Jeep) would get me here and she did. She is also the perfect Baja car as many of the roads here are dirt or sand, full of potholes, often flooding the rare times it rains but nothing has ever stopped her. She has just over 200K miles on her which, according to every mechanic whoever looked at her says has at least another 200K in her, probably more. If you want reliable, fun, unstoppable with personality and a great body, get one of these old Cherokees up to 2001. Sadly and misguidedly, Jeep changed both the body style and the amazing engine after that and Cherokees have never been the same since--but you can´t go wrong with these great, almost imortal vehicles!


Reliable, very few problems

My mom drives a 99’. We bought it about 6 years ago with 150k miles on it for about $3k when the used car market was better. This car has had very minimal problems and/or problems that can be fixed at home. It has about 300k on it now and is still going strong. However it does has a transmission problem but almost all cars eventually, the transmissions go bad. However, everyone’s opinion my differ depending on the condition the car is when bought. If the car was not maintained before you will definitely see more problems. One thing I do dislike is how the car is not as heavy and sometimes if it is windy you may feel the car get pushed a little. But, overall this car will last you a long time, even when buying it with a bit of mileage on it. It’s has a very nice vintage look to it and so much fun to drive. Absolutely no blind spots and is very easy to see out of. The car is really spacious and super comfortable. Also they are pretty easy to work on and you can take it to a trust mechanic that won’t charge you a fortune like most dealerships. It accelerates very nicely. It’s a great everyday drive. It’s crazy sometimes to see that even though these cars are over 20 years old they are still on the road. The engine in this car is definitely one of the best Jeep has ever made. I would definitely recommend this to someone who has an eye for 90s vintage cars and is looking for something older but still reliable.
