    My car

    I own a 1995 Cherokee Sport 2.5 TD that I bought for £1500 - the very bottom of the price range.

    I think your review is very balanced but I have to say I rate the Jeep very highly. There is absolutely no corrosion on mine, although the laquer has started to lift in small patches - I can't say the same for Range Rovers of the same age.

    The engine is from VM Italy and is same as fitted to the Frontera, so my local car shop has the filters in stock. The interior is agricultural - it has organ stops to operate the headlights, but all the plastics and interior are in one piece, except for a little vinyl crack on the driver's seat.

    If you're looking for a cheap 4x4, you could do a lot worse for your money - I'd be looking at a 1990-ish Surf or Trooper for the same money. My kids love it and think it's cool, which is no bad thing when you're driving bangers.

    My car

    Having read all the information on this vehicle, I bought a 1995 model to tow a boat and trailer. It's the 4 litre Limited High output. Very impressive. Bags of power and very comprehensive specification. Compared other 4X4's it will do anything a Land Rover will do in much more comfort. In addition, as a second hand vehicle,better value

    My car

    I have a 1997 2.5TD Sport. I noticed that it began to struggle under load normally 1st & 2nd gear and on occasion the engine would shut down without warning!

    I put the car into a Jeep dealer to find out what the problem was and to my complete shock it was the fuel pump that is on the right hand side of the engine. The cost to replace this part is almost £2500.00 + VAT!!!!!!!!!!

    As you can guess I was shocked at the cost of the part. The pump can be repared but not by a Jeep Dealer as they will only replace the complete unit.

    After some digging I have found out that this problem is becoming more common and has taken a long time for it to come out. This is because the Jeep Cherokee was not sold in huge Fleet numbers and has taken a while for privatly owned cars to get to the mileage where the fault begins to occur. This problem can occur in cars with a mileage as low as 75k if the car is mainly used in and around town or 150k if it is mainly used on the motorway.
