 I have for sale a low mileage 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport Utility which was in an accident in Burlington VT in December of 20011. The owner's Vermont insurer classified it as a total, which doesn't really make sense, even based on the inflated dealership repair quote ( I have a copy). I found this vehicle at our local salvage yard. They had it put aside as repairable, which it most certainly is!

2001 was the last year for this classic Jeep. Chrysler updated the drive train (low pinion Dana 30 rear axle) and (distributorless) ignition., which compliments the rock solid 4.0L cast iron in-line six motor. I have had a number of these Jeeps over the years and still admire them. I'm reluctantly selling this vehicle because quite frankly, I have too many other pressing projects! I'd rather pass it along to someone who's going to use it, than have it continue to sit in dry storage.

The Good:

Some of the impressive things about this Jeep are the complete service history (extensive), the incredibly clean interior and overall condition. The carpets, seats, headliner and vinyl are almost mint. I've seen a bunch of these cars over the past 10 years, and that's the first thing that grabbed me when I saw it.

The drive train only has 96,270 miles and has been starting and running very strong. These engines are known for their power and longevity. The body damage does not affect handling or performance. Once started, the car runs perfectly on the alternator. However, I think the crank sensor module is going bad, as I've had to move the shifter to neutral to get it started recently. I just purchased an after market crank sensor for my '99 Cherokee on eBay - cost - @$40.00. Consequently I would say that the car currently has starting issues. The alloy wheels are in good condition, but the tires are worn. Most options appear to work fine, however,  the radio is out - may need a fuse.

With the exception of the damaged areas on the passenger side, the paint is in excellent condition, There are a couple of other minor dents here and there, which may have happened when the car was transported - they can probably be popped out. The hood is mint - opens and closes perfectly.

The Bad:

The car took a rather peculiar hit on the passenger side, which caused a long crease above the drip edge, the passenger side windshield pillar is crushed, as is the front passenger door and both front fenders are dented.

I purchased mint salvaged fenders (LH + RH) and a mint front passenger door - all in white, when I acquired the car in April, 2012. My understanding is that the headliner will need to be pulled away on the passenger side to access the underside of the roof to repair the damage. The headliner is currently in mint condition - so care's needed doing that project.

The passenger side rocker will need to be replaced. The driver side rocker panel has surface rust, but is sound. All three doors open and close perfectly and the damaged passenger door opening appears to be OK, but until the damaged door is removed, we won't know for sure.

There is corrosion on both front floor pans. New pans are $81.00 each on eBay. I'm replacing them (along with the rockers) on my 1999 this fall. The front seat mounts have surface rust, which is normal for cars which have spent time in the snow belt. Other than the front floor pans, there does not appear to be any significant rust on the underside. The exhaust is good, but is probably an older replacement.

That's about it - this is a really nice Jeep, which if repaired should give many more years of good service - or buy it for the excellent drive train and interior. You won't go wrong!!

Chrysler delays 2014 Jeep Cherokee media launch

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 13:01:00 EST

Chrysler is making the unusual move of delaying the first media drives of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, which were slated to start next week in Seattle. And while something like this is a rare occurrence, and one that most of the Autoblog staff can't recall happening this publicly or so close to the event itself, it won't effect the actual on-sale date of the new Cherokee, which is set to hit showrooms in September.
"Over the last couple of weeks during final quality and durability testing, we have discovered the opportunity to further improve powertrain calibration," Chrysler told Automotive News. This marks the second notable delay in the Cherokee's short life, after production was delayed for roughly a month earlier this summer.
Still, we'd rather Chrysler make sure the Cherokee is ready for primetime before flying media in from around the country. It shows a willingness to get things right the first time, rather than offering media drives and then tweaking the car after the fact.

Jeep Liberty under investigation for door fires

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 09:31:00 EST

The Jeep Liberty has already had plenty of attention for possible fires thanks to the first-gen model's fuel tank, but now the midsize Jeep is under the microscope of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for another fire-related concern. NHTSA has opened an investigation for the 2012 Liberty after receiving two reports of electrical fires in the driver's door.
According to the investigation summary, around 80,000 vehicles could potentially be affected by this problem. In both reported fires, the drivers noticed smoke and then flames from the master power window switch, and they had to pull to a stop and exit through the passenger side of the SUV. According to Autoguide, there was one injury to a motorist who suffered burned fingers while trying to open the driver's door.
Interestingly, the Dodge Nitro is not yet involved in this investigation, even though it was still around for the 2012 model year; the Nitro ended production in 2011 about a year before the final Liberty rolled off the line for the 2013 model year. Scroll down for the official NHTSA investigation summary.

Jeep Twitter account hacked, bad language, poor grammar and some hilarity ensue

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 14:27:00 EST

Just a day after Burger King's Twitter account was compromised by "unauthorized users," Jeep's social media feed has been similarly hacked. Both instances of digital incursion share some similarities - the BK hackers changed the company's logo for McDonald's familiar golden arches, saying a sale had occurred, while the Jeep miscreants have replaced Jeep's branding with that of General Motors property Cadillac.
The resulting tweets from the damaged Jeep account have been a pretty brutal, to put it bluntly. Most of the content coming from the hacked account is unpublishable here, using language that is peppered with racial epithets, and poorly worded "shout outs."
In addition to the defamatory tweets themselves, the hackers have significantly altered the layout of the page. Jeep's header image now features a picture of the Cadillac ATS to go along with the Wreath and Crest, some language calling out that car as winning the 2013 North American Car of the Year award, and this gem: "The official Twitter handle for the Jeep(R) - Just Empty Every Pocket, Sold To Cadillac =[" Also, perhaps in an ode to yesterday's Burger King heist, the background image for the page now features a McDonald's-themed donk. The devil's in the details, we guess.
