Castroville, California, United States

Castroville, California, United States

Located in Castroville, California.  In Monterey county's central coast. 
This is a 1987 Jeep/AMC Cherokee Limited 4x4. VIN:1JCMR7896HT144194.  Automatic transmission that shifts great.  The 4.0 Liter inline 6 cylinder runs great and is responsive.  It is the early version of the 4.0 litre which is know as the RENIX engine.  It currently has under 134k original miles but they are going up since I'ts my daily driver/commuter.  I am the second owner I believe however the Carfax shows only one owner.  Original owner's manual and window sticker.  New looking spare tire.  I purchased it from a nice lady who provided me with thousands of dollars worth of maintenance receipts dating back to the early 90's.  The 4x4 system is the selec-trac I believe and works well as I have only shifted to try out how it drives but have not taken in it off road.  The interior features black perforated leather seats in excellent shape for their age, and trim pieces, as well as gray perforated upper door panels and dashboard.  Black carpet in excellent condition that is always protected with all weather rubber mats as well as the original Jeep floor mats.  The headliner is black and is only about 3 months old.  It has a pop-up sunroof that the previous owner had installed.  The dash has no cracks but there is minimal "yellowing" on some spots. There is a light gray dash mat that protects it.  All electronics work.  However, the driver side power window is slower going up than the driver side.  Keyless entry system works intermittently only.  Power locks, power front seats, the cruise control works as well.  The A/C blows cold air and the heater works fine however, it no longer lights up at night since a few weeks ago.  Instrument cluster lights work as well as the brake warning light, low coolant light, high beam indicators etc.  I will put up pictures soon and be sure to include detailed pictures of the cosmetic things it needs it could use.  Other than that, the reason I am selling my Jeep is that I have been commuting to school now and will benefit more from a smaller car as I also have a v8 truck.  Local buyer is welcome and I can deliver within 100 miles.  Otherwise buyer will make their own arrangements as far as picking it up goes.  Please contact me with any questioned and I will be as detailed as possible in answering them to the best of my ability. Thank you for looking.

China orders Jeep to investigate Wrangler fire risk

Mon, 06 Jan 2014

It's been some time since we've heard anything about fires related to the Jeep Wrangler (foreign or domestic), but it sounds like the go-anywhere SUV could be in hot water once again in China. Bloomberg is reporting that the Chinese government is ordering Jeep to investigate the matter and, in the meantime, also recommending Wrangler owners to not drive their vehicles in "extreme conditions" due to a "relatively high risk" of catching on fire.
There is no indication as to how many vehicles or which model years are affected, but the previous fire problems in both the US and China - which led to investigations but no recalls - were traced back to automatic transmission fluid leaks. The article, however, does not say what the potential problem is this time around as Jeep has not released a comment on the matter. The official notice, in Chinese, can be found here.

Watch this 9-year-old drive Jeep Wrangler off-road [w/poll]

Wed, 28 May 2014

This nine-year-old girl might be better at rock crawling than some people twice her age. But is it worth putting her in danger to do it? According to her father on the Jeep Experience Facebook page, her name is Faith, and she has been offroading with her family since she was two. At nine years old, she's now driving her dad's Jeep over the rocks by herself.
As you can see she's belted in and under her father's direct supervision and guidance. She shows immense confidence for someone her age and follows her dad's instructions on exactly what to do. Although, this could still be a very dangerous situation if something went wrong.
Previously, we saw a similar video with a six-year-old on a motorcycle driving on public roads through the desert. Voters decided by only a six-point margin that the adult should be in trouble for letting the kid ride the bike. Here, we have a slightly older child driving a vehicle off road. Where do you fall in this case? Is it still wrong to hand over control to a child? Let us know in the poll below and scroll down to watch the video.

Jeep Wrangler diesel likely after 2015 model refresh

Thu, 28 Feb 2013

We automotive journalists aren't always the right people to ask about whether a US-spec vehicle should or should not be offered with a diesel powertrain (hint: the answer is usually "YES"). But when it comes to the iconic, off-road-ready Jeep Wrangler, we aren't the only ones who have been clamoring for an oil-burning engine behind that famous seven-slat grille. To that end, it appears there's good news on the horizon, as Jeep CEO Mike Manley recently told Ward's Auto that the "Wrangler is on the radar to get (a) diesel."
"I'm confident that the Grand Cherokee will show just how large a demand there is for diesel, and I think what that will do is reinforce the need for us to target Wrangler as a vehicle that can take a diesel," Manley told Ward's. The most rugged of Jeeps is scheduled to get an overhaul around 2015-16, and the diesel powertrain will likely be introduced around that time.
This year alone, Chrysler will be adding a diesel engine to the Grand Cherokee SUV, as well as the Ram 1500 pickup and Promaster utility van.
