 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 adding 200 jobs at Ohio Jeep Wrangler plant

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 15:43:00 EST

Chrysler is betting that the Jeep Wrangler will continue its strong sales surge as it continues to push the legendary brand out across the globe. The Auburn Hills automaker is reportedly adding 200 workers at the Toledo, Ohio plant that builds the Wrangler. What's more, those new hires will be at their posts quickly - they'll be on the job by April 1. Of those 200 workers, 130 employees will be there to relieve those who need breaks.
Why do they need so many relief workers? The Toledo Jeep Complex is currently working at a torrid pace with two ten-hour shifts. A third shift has been ruled out for the moment because of a production botttleneck - the plant's paint shop is already maxed out. According to Reuters, Wrangler production in 2012 cleared 200,000 units, and US sales were up by 16 percent.
Another part of the Toledo plant is presently down as Chrysler retools the line to build Jeep's divisively styled Liberty replacement, the Cherokee (seen in our gallery below). Production for the new model is scheduled to begin toward the end of May.

2015 Jeep Renegade

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 00:01:00 EST

It's no secret that the midsize crossover segment is one of the most hotly contested battlegrounds in the automotive industry. Long have vehicles like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 duked it out for those ever illusive consumer dollars. For many customers, though, even something like a Nissan Rogue is too big, whether in terms of price, fuel economy or just plain size.
For those customers, a growing market segment seems poised to fulfill their needs. Compact crossovers and tall wagons like the Nissan Juke and Kia Soul offer the high-riding driving experience with all the utility that comes from their two-box layout. It's an underrepresented segment among manufacturers, with big names like Toyota, Ford, General Motors and Honda lacking a true competitor.
To capitalize on this growing class, Chrysler's Jeep brand has readied this: the Renegade. That's right. Not Jeepster - Renegade. This diminutive off-roader, which rides on Fiat Chrysler's new small-wide 4x4 architecture, represents Jeep's first foray into the subcompact CUV segment as we know it, and it's making its official debut this week, on the floor of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Join us as we take a close look at one of Jeep's most important products in some time.

NHTSA closes investigation into Jeep Liberty fires

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 08:58:00 EST

The investigation that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened into the Jeep Liberty in October 2013 has been closed. NHTSA received two (!) complaints about fires starting in the driver's door, thought to be caused by the master power window switch. The initial estimate was that 80,000 Libertys could be roped into a possible recall, but according to a report in the Detroit News the agency examined records for 425,000 Chrysler products that used the same window switch, including the Dodge Nitro and Chrysler Town & Country minivan.
After canvassing 265 warranty claims related to the master switches, NHTSA concluded that the rate of fires compared to the "large population of vehicles" was rather low, and that there was no trend pattern behind the few issues it did find. Perhaps with that, and the closure of the trailer hitch investigation, the Liberty can finally rest in peace.
