Jeep Cherokee 2005
Added: 13th of October 2013
I've had mine since 2006, bought from a main dealer who'd used it as a demonstrator, so it was very low mileage and very well maintained. My wife and I have just returned from a journey to Vienna, the return journey via Bremen. The car was comfortable, and easily maintained a good cruising speed on the autobahns. Economy waas reasonable at 37mpg - very good considering it's fitted with a suspension lift, underbody armour, and snorkel. It took our luggage and more importantly a LOAD of stuff we'd bought on holiday. It is remarkably manoeverable - with a very tight turning circle and in fact I can get into parking spaces that previously I'd have had difficulty getting into in my Peugeot 306. Visibility is excellent through large windows all round. The diesel engine is not too loud, and conversation is easily maintained at motorway speeds at a normal speaking volume. Acceleration - while no sports car, is perfectly adequate to make progress and overtake, although it is definately not a racer! As with any vehicle, regular maintenance is essential and things will wear out and need replacement - tyres, exhaust, brake parts; recently the pipefrom the auto transmission box to the cooler began to leak and had to be replaced - but these are the sort of things one can expect from any vehicle after its been in use for a few years. We are both very happy with it and have no plans to replace it.
