I've been looking at the Cherokee Sport
and Grand Wagoneers
as a second car for myself.
i just got a black 00 cherokee sport, really love it
Get a Wagoneer only if you have a tolerance for bad cold starts, idling, running, rust, water leaks, electrical gremlins, creaking interior panels, and 11mpg.
So I should go with the sport?
Depends on what you like, and I know you like Wagoneers.
I love them.
However, I don't want a problem vehicle. I need something reliable, obviously, since I'm not buying new. My current car doesn't have a warranty, and neither would the Jeep. I don't want a new one. I dont' want to spend more than 5K on it. Tops.
I'm also considering selling my car outright, (I think I could get about 8K for it) and then purchasing a Jeep, so it'd be my ONLY vehicle.
I love my car, but I need to get out of this sports car. Not just because of the fact that I have two dogs that don't fit comfortably in my car, but I'm sick and tired of hitting all the god damn pot holes. I can't afford to keep replacing tires, wheels, and shocks.
never been much of a fan of cherokees. my girl wants a liberty.
i like most jeeps.
I hate the Liberty, and while I'd love a Wrangler, it's a little small for my needs.
i found this 98 black cherokee sport that i like but i dont know if i wanna drive an hour to get it
i used to hate them. then i saw one with a lift and huge tires and it kinda stuck on me.
They just don't look as good...
so would a cherokee be a bad first car?
The Wagoneer my father had was reliable, it just always had something wrong with it. Nothing that would leave you stranded though.
The cherokee would probably be your best bet.
Do you want to look good or get around in shitty winter conditions?
kinda like that, but not as extreme.
I want to get around in shitty weather conditions. And I want to get around in the summer when we go up north, and I'll need something that accomodates jetskis, dogs and camping gear. And I'd prefer to look good doing it. For under 5K
got a `96 cherokee sport.
alil 175k on original engine.
daily driver and still running strong.
though,i did put alot of cash into it a couple years ago.
I'm at work... I don't see it.
Well, if I sold my current car, and bought what I'm looking for, I would be done with car payments within a years time, and then I wouldn't be about fixing my car.
As it is, I have a car payment AND I still have to pay to fix it.
You should've mentioned light towing to begin with
Early 00s Toyota Tacoma
I'd love one, but I need more room for the doggies!!
I'd love an old Tahoe/Blazer, but those are gas hogs too.
I'd love to go buy brand new, and not worry about problems... but I'd hate the car payment.
