Bought my 1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo new, it will be 21 years old in May, 2011. What a fantastic vehicle this has been. True, I don't drive a lot compared to most people, and the vehicle has been constantly kept in my garage when not being used. But the repairs have been few and not much above normal maintenance required. No accidents, a few very minor dings here and there, from shopping carts, mostly.

The Consumer Reports rating on this vehicle in 1990/1991 timeframe was about 6/10, so perhaps I just got lucky.

Also true, there are basic design problems with it, like the cooling system. The coolant recycle plastic tank has been replaced by myself 3 or 4 times. Various little things are gradually stating to fail over the past 3-4 years, which is expected. But overall - it's been the best vehicle I have ever owned and when it finally dies, I'll miss the damn thing.

That 232 CI straight 6 (4.0L) engine, is the same basic motor design used in the early 1960's Plymouth Valient and Dodge Dart for years - and those have easily gone 250,000 miles. Kinda scary...
