The Perfect (almost) vehicle by AW from Miami on 10/31/2011. Trim: 2000 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4-Door 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: This is quite possibly the perfect automobile (except for gas mileage). It can haul or carry substantial cargo while still fitting 5 people inside. It is relatively low-tech so there is less (expensive) electronics that can break. The engine seems like it will run forever. And the parts that wear out (except for tires) are not outrageously expensive.
Cons: Gas mileage, now that its in the $3.50 - $4.00 range. Even with mostly highway driving it's still expensive. Remember when I bought this back in 2000, gas was only $1.50. Full tank for $25. Now $60. Wish they had made this with diesel engine. Headliner has detached after only 10 years!
Overall review: Very happy with this car. Purchased new in 2000 by special order with tow package, skid plates, and all the bells and whistles (without leather seats b/c leather in Miami sun = 200 degrees). Has 143,000 miles and will run it until it absolutely costs too much to repair. It is getting to the stage where I subject it to a little more abuse than when new, but as long as the engine, transmission, and brakes keep working, I'll be driving "old reliable."
