Default How many miles can a cherokee get?

Hey everyone this is my first post. I am looking to buy a 1990 jeep cherokee laredo 4.0l 4x4. it has 174,000 miles on it. i wanted to know how many more miles i can expect out of this thing. looking at it and driving it you can tell it was taken care of and the owner says they just had it tuned up. should i expect problems at this milage? If the truck should get me gome good milage still, im going to buy it. what do you think?

That is like asking how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop.

Expect the same that you would expect from any vehicle with so many miles

I think I don't really know what you are asking. Without reading too much into your questions.... There is no such thing as a 14yr old anyvehicle with 174k that will not require basic maint &amp; repairs. Are you willing and/or able to perform them?
I think Jeep makes a great vehicle... but it is a Jeep not a car - so expect it to be like a Jeep.
I think the world would be better off if everyone had a Jeep they could use to escape from everyday life and have some fun with friends... out away from it all.
I think you should buy it - or some other Jeep.
Put some good tires and some tow points on it then get a tow strap.
Wheel it.

It is a beautiful thing.



...and by the way.
Welcome here.
Hang around for a while and enjoy.



I have scavenged from XJs in salvage yards that had under 100k &amp; no visible damage
Mine is +180k &amp; going fine.
A buddy sold his @ 230k because it was too rusty
$1.75 can still get you coffee &amp; a donut.
blah blah blah

Give that Jeep a 90,000 mile maintenance (check/replace/repair), make that engine purr, and run it for another 100,000 miles. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Mine has 260K miles and has been thru some pretty rough stuff in Costa Rica. It is completely stock and still has the original engine but definitely needs some major work. The T-case is shot and the compression is down to about 60...but it still runs! and it gets 250 miles/gallon of oil.

I have a 94 2door cherkoee with 95k on it it runs great its my d/d for now

if you want my god honest opinion i would say get a old toyota 4runner or pickup you can beat the piss out of them and run them for ever and not have to worry about anything.
jeeps are great and all but they are so much money for one that is decent if you ask me. jeep with 100-150k miles for 4k seems high to me when you can find a toyota with as much less or more and pay half as much or less. but thats just my 2 cents.

pretty much look around if you find a really nice jeep and wnat to spend the money go for it but if its your first truck id say get somthing that is a beater first to get use to riding. it would be a shame to get a jeep for 4k or so and then get in a car accident.

heres my 4runner i paid 2 grand it has 36 on it and runs great

heres my cherokee my uncle gave it to me cuz he moved and im happy i dident have to pay for it.
