1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport

I found a 95 Cherokee Sport with the inline 6 (4.0HO) motor. Jeep has 113,000 miles on it and has been pampered by the dealer-everything has been taken care of it in a timely fashion. Wondering if the Jeep is worth 3500 bucks or not.Mainly-reliability is my main factor-will it run for a good amount of time wothout any major problems. Any one with some knowledge on the motor or car would be appreciated.

The actual engine (mechanicals) is more or less bulletproof. I had a 1988 Jeep Cherokee with a 4.0 L and just traded it in at 168,000 miles. The area of concern is with the peripheral accessories. I think I put two altenators, a starter and a water pump on her, during her 16 years. When I traded it in, it had a leaky fuel injector (previously had to have the fuel injector "O" rings changed because of leaking) and the engine did leak around the rear seal. I would be cautious if you don't expect to put any money into it, but mine ran pretty stronge through the sixteen years I had her. If I had the option to do it again with my Cherokee, I would. Check out Kelly Blue Book, and Edmunds, they should give you an good idea on what it's worth. At 113,000 miles your going to have to expect to start replacing some of the parts due to wear out.

I agree. Anything with that many miles on it is due to have some things replaced. If the body and frame are in good shape, then this might be a good deal.

Jeez, I wish I could put a photo in here!

my concern is if it hasn't had anything replaced. all machines use parts and if nothing has been changed you could be buying a vehicle that needs repairing soon. as far as value goes what do you think the vehicle is worth, will it serve your needs?

A friend of mine just bought a 95 Jeep Cherokee. She asked me to research her price. Private party value is $5,900. Dealer would sell it for $10,000. The body on her Jeep was decent but no prize. The Jeep she bought has 168,000 on the clock and needed brakes at all 4 corners.

If you can get the same vehicle for $3500, I would do it regardless of any thing else as long as it has not been wrecked.
