Review of 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport

When I first purchased my Jeep it was due to an unknown problem that had occurred with the last owner and it required nearly everything under the hood to be replaced. Which, granted, was very easy to accomplish with this particular car and largely inexpensive, but since doing so I have not had another problem from my Jeep. It's been nearly two years since I purchased the Jeep, and I hope that I will be able to continue owning this Jeep for many more years to come. It is a highly reliable and safe vehicle.

The Jeep Cherokee--a reliable vehicle flexible enough to do just about anything you would want a vehicle to do

I love my Jeep Cherokee for several reasons. It has an engine that has legendary reliability. It has a lot of covered space to haul things and the seats fold up or down to either give you more hauling capacity or more passenger room. The 4 wheel drive also comes in handy under certain weather conditions or when to want to go off-road. It's a great general-purpose vehicle.

2001 Jeep Cherokee: built to last.

I love my Jeep. It is reliable, cheap to maintain, built like a tank and 4-wheel drive. I bought it 7+ years ago, when money was tight for my family and it has, and will stay with me, for as long as I can keep her running. I have put very little money into her, except for tires. A new battery, spark plugs and brake pads are all she really needed.

Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V366
Summary:
Certain passenger vehicles, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems." Some of the owner's manuals for these vehicles are missing instructions that provide a step-by-step procedure, including diagrams, for properly attaching a child restraint system's tether strap to the tether anchorage. In the event of a crash, the child seat may not be properly attached, increasing the risk of injury to the child.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Owners will be provided with an addendum to the owner's manuals. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 12, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free owner's manual addendum within a reasonable time should contact Daimler Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
