 You are bidding on 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This was our main vehicle for many years, now that gas prices have gone up we have only used it mainly during the winter months for wife's commute to work. We have always had the oil changed every 3000 miles. We just put a lot of money into the Jeep with replacing the water pump and while replacing that the mechanic also said our head gasket needed repair. We did have a second quote to verify that it was indeed of needing repair. Which it was and we have had all that work done just a month ago. Last winter we had both front axles replaced with new ones. The rear shocks have also been replaced about that time. It also just had a tune up just a few months ago. The brakes front and back were changed about 8 months ago. The tires do need to be replaced eventually I would say there is maybe 35% left of the tread life. One other new thing that has recently came up is the neutral safety switch. It does need replaced if the Jeep does not start you put it in neutral and it starts right up. I took it in to be checked but this year of Jeep has two different switches and they could not give me a accurate quote without tearing into to see which one it was. So I just let it go for now. It also needs a muffler, I had the catalytic converter changed but the mechanic said the muffler needed addressed soon. It does not make any noise just needs replaced.The interior is in great shape no tears in the seats and the headliner is in great shape. The carpets are in good shape also some minor stains here and there but nothing major.  I am trying to be honest with any and all issues that the vehicle may have. If you have any questions or are in the area and want to see it just message me.

2015 Jeep Cherokee finds a bit more fuel mileage thanks to stop/start and aero tweaks

Mon, 06 Oct 2014

Just a year after it burst onto the scene, Jeep has already made a pretty substantial addition to its V6-powered Cherokee, which has proven to be an extremely popular seller so far for the brand, adding a new stop-start system for the midsize, off-road-ready CUV.
The addition of stop-start included a few aerodynamic tweaks to the Cherokee's polarizing body, resulting in a wallet-pleasing increase in fuel economy. According to the EPA, the front-drive, V6-powered Jeep will now return 21 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, up from 19 city and 28 highway. Four-wheel-drive, V6-powered Cherokees, meanwhile, will now return 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, up from 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg.
With 271 horsepower, 239 pound-feet of torque and these newly enhanced figures, it's refreshing to see a larger, naturally aspirated engine that is still able to take the fight to today's crop of small-displacement, turbocharged four-cylinders.

Jeep Liberty replacement takes shape

Wed, 16 Jan 2013

Now that the Liberty has left us for greener pastures, it's time to start looking into the future of the midsize Jeep model. The next all-new vehicle for the off-road brand will be the SUV you see here, effectively replacing the Liberty, and not necessarily carrying on with that name.
From the sides, the prototype you see here sort of looks like a miniature version of the handsome Grand Cherokee, albeit with a bit more in the way of body sculpting. Up front, the seven-slat grille will be front and center, with completely revised headlamp designs that are reportedly angular and sweep well into the front fenders (you can sort of see what we're talking about in the side profile). That doesn't sound very Jeep-like, but we'll reserve judgment until we, you know, see the thing.
The bigger question with the Liberty replacement will be whether or not its off-road chops will be up to snuff. After all, the two previous generations of Liberty models were body-on-frame traditional SUVs, whereas this new Jeep rides on a larger version of the Dodge Dart platform.

Jeep Cherokee won't get diesel until sales of oil-burning Grand Cherokee improve

Tue, 01 Jul 2014

Okay Jeep fans, you want more diesel options? Time to step up and prove it. The only way Jeep will offer a diesel powerplant in the Cherokee, according to brand head Mike Manley, is if sales of the Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel nearly double.
Currently, about eight percent of the Grand Cherokees sold feature the 3.0-liter, EcoDiesel V6. That's simply not enough to warrant the bringing an oil-burning Cherokee to the US market, despite the vehicle's presence in Europe, where it's sold with a 2.8-liter diesel V6.
"Cherokee is slightly different because of its weight and size. When I think about bringing Cherokee diesel here, I would like to see Grand Cherokee diesel get much higher than eight percent," Manley told Automotive News. "It would have to be in mid-double digits."
