I love Jeep cars and when the Cherokee came back out again, I rushed to the dealership to trade my One year old Tacoma. My only regret was. It getting one with the tow package as you never know when you'll need it. The factory tow will give you a tow capacity of 4500. Without it, even adding an aftermarket hitch, you'll only get 2000 lb tow capacity because if the gear ratios and engine cooler. This car has plenty of acceleration when you need it and the creature comforts and technology are great. I am currently tranding this car for one that is a year newer with the factory tow package!

I would not recommend this car to a friend because I find it hard to drive. It has larger blind spots than I realized when I test drove the car. A bigger issue is its reliability. It seems to have electronic issues. It's been in the shop 3 weeks out of the 14 that I have owned the car. If I hadn't bought the warranty, I would have been walking for those 3 weeks. The warranty entitles me to a loaner car when my car is in the shop, but it has sometimes been a hassle to get the loaner car. Eventually I get a loaner, but I traded in an 11 year old car because of dependability issues. At this point I miss my old car. I'm not sure I will be keeping this car very long, and I'm sure I'm going to be out quite a bit when I trade it.
I selected this Jeep because it gave my plenty of comfort, brown leather heated seats, storage space, plenty of technology like Sat Radio and GPS and had the ability to go off road yet be a comfortable drive on the highway. I would get the larger engine even though mileage is less. It's a small SUV so it's easy to park and easy to drive off road (fit in between trees). The new Jeep is called the ugly Jeep by some but those that own it love it.
