I gave my 1991 Cherokee to my grandsons when I got the 2003. I loved the vehicle, and they do too. Now it is 17 years old and still going strong, in spite of some lack of preventive maintenance.
I can get me through almost any driving situation. We have some severe weather in SD, and in winter it takes some time to get all the roads cleared. No problem for the Jeep. The automatic overdrive can be turned off with a button on the shift lever.
The select track system allow me to leave it in 4 wheel drive all winter with out having to go back to 2 wheel drive for dry pavement. We have lots of snow patches interspersed with dry pavement.
Jeep brand is well recognized for durability and ability to handle all kinds of terrain.
