What used Jeep Cherokee 4x4 will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Jeep Cherokee 4x4?
Servicing at main dealers won't be cheap - a Nissan X-Trail, Land Rover Freelander and Honda CR-V are all likely to cost less. However, data from Warranty Direct suggests you could cut the labour bill by more than half by going to a reputable independent instead.
If the Cherokee does go wrong, it isn't cheap to fix, either, and it's likely to be off the road for a few days.
Fuel costs will eat into your wallet, too. The 3.7 V6 returns an official average of just below 22mpg and will give significantly less in town or if you work it hard. The 2.4 petrol should nudge that up to 27mpg, but the diesels are slightly better - 28-29mpg for the 2.8 CRD and 31-32mpg for the 2.5 CRD.
Insurance will also take its toll - it's group 15 for all but the V6, which is 16.
