I had a 1994 Cherokee with 300,000 miles on it! I never had a problem with it and I was able to sell it for a thousand bucks. My 1999 TJ has 50,000 miles on it and the only problem with it was a cracked exhaust manifold ( which you can still drive with ) and a stupid $50 electrical part. All those "other" little cars are nice but they wont help me drive 3 miles into the woods to go hunting or go through a creek....

When this thread was started all Jeeps still had solid axles. We still had the Cherokee, the 4.0 I6, and 4cyl. Wranglers. There was no Liberty, Commander, Patriot, or Compass. CD players were optional and navigation was the passenger with a map.

Hah. Hadn't noticed the dates.

Ah Grasshopper! You are still wet behind the ears to not recall the 2.8 V6 monstrosity foisted upon the Jeep world in '84 to '86! (GM was bailing on them and owed AMC a motor because they bailed on the Rotary engine that was going to be in the Pacer and GMs due to fuel costs)

Jeeps may have been concieved by God, but they were unfortunately built by Man. Anything man makes, he tends to screw it up in a variety of ways.
Expecially if the Man works at Chrysler.

As others have indicated, if you're gonna use the Jeep like it was meant to be used, you'll bust things and get lots of wrench time fixing stuff. Comes with the territory.

With that said, I believe Jeep does suffer from Chrysler's (ahem) quality products. I got my 98 Cherokee used with 110,000 miles. It has had almost all the classic Jeep failures we know of: A/C was dead because of a leaky evaporator coil. $1400 (pro shop rates). Backup lights weren't working because of bad Neutral Safety Switch (NSS): $500 (pro shop rates). Death wobble from worn out power steering unit: 500 bucks. Still unrepaired yet is the occasional gas leak if I overfill the tank. And the back springs are starting to sag. And the original paint on the hood is blistering (ok, blame the TX sun for that).

A great design (Jeep) can be negated by less than great parts (Chrysler). As you read the forums and posts here, you'll see these breakdowns I listed above are quite common in our Jeeps. But since we believe in and love this vehicle, we're ready to overcome the shortcomings of its unworthy parent company, and we wrench, we upgrade, and we keep on Jeepin.

In short, what we are, Jeepers, is something Consumer Reports cannot analyze or understand. Think of the CR people as mere Sirens singing an evil song, and you are Jason seeking the true course to the Grail. Jeep ON!

88 XJ 268K no problems, PO kept meticulous records, no probs for him. I've owned at least one Jeep for the last 10 years, never a problem other than my WJ being no match ( in a T-boning ) for a Super Duty driven by a coked up trophy wife in Scottsdale.

Consumer reports just can't look past a vehicle with the interior space of a late 80's Civic getting mileage in the teens.

Exactly. Consumer Reports may have its place -- for consumers.

But we're not 'consumers'... we're JEEPERS. A totally different animal.

The Jeeper animal can put on the cloak of civility, of 'consumerism'... and can mingle in the streets with 'consumers' when necessary.

But the true heart of a Jeeper lives... out there... where 'consumers' do not venture. That's our territory. That's our Way.
