    My car

    Many people seem to be under the illusion that if you buy a four-wheel drive it should match up to a Range Rover. The Cherokee may not be the fastest thing on the road or have the biggest pose factor but that is not what it's all about.

    The Jeep is comfortable to drive, has reasonable fuel consumption and parts & labour are fairly reasonable compared to other main dealers. American styling is something you either love or hate it and the Jeep has plenty of it.

    I would recomend one of these to anybody, they are alot of fun and comfortable on a long journeys, loads of boot space and generally better than Vauxhall, Nissan and Toyota who for this price range are the nearest rivlas.

    Still buying a 4x4 is down to personal preference, and what I like you may well hate, so don't take anything anybody says in these reviews to seriously until you have been out and driven them all yourself!

    My car

    We purchased the Jeep about 3 weeks ago to feel secure in the Highlands of Scotland in the winter. In part time four-wheel drive, the vehicle hates corners! You just don't feel in control. We seriously regret buying this car as not onlydoes it not perform well in the snow, but it has already been back to the dealer for an engine problem as well!

    My car

    This is my second Jeep Cherokee from new in 2 years. The first one was a 2.4 Sport. The clutch disolved in a cloud of smoke at 13,000 miles, fixed under warranty and a new flywheel fitted as well.

    I changed it immediately after repair for the CRD. This model has the power the vehicle needs, the 2.4 being under-powered. The auto gearbox failed at 3800 miles, reasons unknown to dealer or anyone else.

    The gearbox was replaced under warranty, with no quibbles and a replacement vehicle was provided for the duration. Very much an American highway cruiser, the auto box struggles with the rapidly varying road types in rural Aberdeenshire, however it chews up and spits out any of the rough stuff off tarmac.

    All in all, I have a sort of love/hate relationship with the Jeep, looks great, well kitted but my faith in them has had a serious knock.

    I doubt I would get another.
