used car of the day 1999 jeep cherokee

We're going high mileage today.

This 1999 Jeep Cherokee/XJ has over 254K on the clock. And it's being priced at a quite reasonable $2,200.

The owner says it's been well-maintained and has had a lot of key parts replaced recently, or at least within the past few years. There are some cosmetic issues, such as a rock chip in the windshield. This Jeep also has a small lift.

The owner says that there is none of the infamous "death wobble."

If this sort of thing floats your 4x4 boat, it's based in Michigan. Take a look here.

    ha ha, I’ve got one with 114k, no rust no lift, (no heater no gas gauge).

    I've seen some in similar condition sold as parts only because the frame is rusted out. I would pass for $2200. Seen a few for $500 that looked the same rust, but sold as "Parts vehicle" with a clean title.

  • FreedMike I'm going to rebadge my Jetta as an Audi and swim in the profits.
  • Kwik_Shift Looks HyunKia-ish.
  • MrIcky Seems like TTAC writers really want a ford sedan. I remember all the wailing and gnashing of teeth when the fusion went away. It's not an interesting car except to journos and just not what the general population requires. Time to let go.
  • MrIcky Seems like a Mustang for Mustang fans to talk about with other Mustang fans. I just went to the Corvette configutor and built a 2LT Z51 for 79,540, a base 1LT is $65k. Both are arguably nicer, and certainly better performers than this. If a Mustang is going to play in that bracket it has to do something different to beef up the emotional appeal. The supercharger did that, the flat plane crank that revved to >8k (if they worked out the bugs) does that. A 'regular' Mustang V8 with some parts out of the Ford Catalogue doesn't seem to be worth the >60k range.
  • Kcflyer For anywhere over 60k I'm buying a C8 which will run rings around any mustang ever made. I'm a huge mustang fan but......sorry. Now show me a GT with the "good" manual discounted to 40 grand and we can talk.
