What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For The Cherokee has excellent off-road ability and a good driving position; it's roomy, too

Against The diesel engines are noisy, the petrol engines are thirsty, and running costs are high

Verdict It's a great off-road workhorse, but it's also unrefined and uneconomical

Go for… 2.8 CRD Sport

Avoid… 3.7 V6

Jeep Cherokee 4x4
  • 1. Great off-road - and there's plenty of space for four inside its well-equipped cabin
  • 2. It's generally rugged, but the suspension and axles are the weakest parts, and fixing them can hit your wallet hard
  • 3. Automatic gearboxes on the diesels can jump out of gear, so watch out for that on a test drive
  • 4. Check that recall work on the suspension ball-joints and brakes has been done before you buy
  • 5. Two can sit in the back in comfort, and even three can fit without too much of a push
