'97 TJ 2.5 L dependability?

I am about to purchase a 97 TJ with a 2.5L 4cyl. I know these engines were terrible in the early 90's, did jeep fix their problem/s? Is this a totally new design? and if so when did they change them? Are the newer 4cyls dependable?

Mike

I have a 97 2.5L and it runs really good actually. Of course, their isnt as much power as the 4.0L, but with stock tires, their is still enought power to satisfy my drving needs, but in terms of dependability, it is much more dependable than the previous 4cyl engines
