    Jeep Cherokee

    I'm considering buying a Jeep Cherokee. Any owners out there have any opinions on it?

    Wife 2015 Trailhawk just passed 45K. Love it. Power is great, trans programming not perfect, but not a big enough issue to ding it for that. Tech is crazy good. Tows great. Biggest load so far was a 1998 3 series convertible from Baltimore, longest tow was an eight foot enclosed U'haul from Charleston SC to Richmond. Oil changes nice and easy, they left a good hole in the skidplate, replaceable paper canister oil filter nice and neat. Handles great for an SUV, visibilty good, not great. Tech toys and nannies work well, adaptive cruise, anti-collision braking, lane keeping. Engine Stop/Start, it doesnt bother me, but some people dont like it.

    Lack of good places to toss your phone is one annoyance :)

    Psy, we have owned a Jeep Cherokee (2000) and, also, one of my bros (not sure the year). They were much older models, but really didn't give us/him much trouble at all. We gave the Cherokee to our dot. They use it as a second car now. I put it up there with my Toyota 4-runner (that I still own and drive), which is a beast; circa 2003.

    The all new version started in 2014, LL. No connection with any of the older versions of the Cherokee.

    Thanks. I am not a car woman or a fisher woman as I noted in a thread yesterday. All, I know is that our Cherokee was a great car. You know your cars/cycles. I would never argue with your knowledge. :

    Very few, if any, of the generations of the Cherokee have not been workhorses. This latest one not so utilitarian, a bit more of a style statement, but once you allow for the compromises made for that styling, it's a pretty good setup. In our trim, the heaviest with the biggest motor, we average right around 20-22mpg. A bit higher on pure highway driving.

    Solid vehicle. Overpriced, and you won't get the wrangler wave, but if you can afford one you will probably like it.

    Well, not overpriced compared to others in it's class, I don't think. Price out other vehicles in it's class and compare features and it comes in pretty well.

    Put a sticker on the windshield or lift it, you'll get the damn Wrangler Wave
    Listen to me now, and believe me later: it doesn't matter how much you pump up those muscles, as long as you reach the full pumptential.

    It's not 'roids but thanks for noticing...
