Jeep Cherokee

Jeep's mid-sized five-door, five seat Cherokee is unashamedly unusual in the looks department, and it doesn't care one bit. The love-it-or-hate-it nose treatment hasn't stopped people flocking to the car.

Jeep sells the US-built Cherokee in Australia in six levels of trim, from an entry level 2.4-litre four-cylinder FWD Sport and more luxurious Limited, through to an off-road specific Trailhawk. As well as the 2.4-litre engine, Jeep sells the Cherokee with a 3.2-litre V6 petrol engine as well as a 2.0-litre diesel, which is restricted to the Limited model. Whether you get the base Cherokee Sport (4x2) for $37,950, or spend $52,650 for the top-of-the-range Cherokee Trailhawk (4x4), all are offered with the same nine-speed automatic.

  • Identifying an Engine light in 2003 Cherokee?

    If the warning light is in the shape of an engine it's telling you something is amiss within the engine management system and you should take it to a mechanic to find out the reason it's coming on. It's probably a faulty engine sensor, or something similar in the engine management system.

  • My Cherokee is a lemon and Chrysler have offered me a deal, what should I expect?

    They will most likely offer you the current trade-in value, which is $27,000 to $30,000, although you might get more for yours given that it has done so few kilometres. The only thing you can do in the circumstances is to negotiate hard and try and get as much as you can for the car. Unfortunately the company has the upper hand, because it can simply refuse to deal.
