This was my first car, a 1985 Jeep Cherokee "Chief" model. Although I have some fond memories of it, for the most part is was a piece of junk.
It had a Chevy 2.8L V6 instead of the excellent inline 6 that Cherokees were famous for. Nothing but problems with it, and the Jeep dealership(s) couldn't even figure most of them out. For an entire summer (in South Carolina!!!!), I had to drive around with the heat on because they couldn't keep the car from overheating. We used the car for our family's business, as a delivery truck. Two days a week that summer I would drive for about four hours, down to Kiawah Island, and back. With the heat on. Ridiculous. Turns out they (Jeep dealership) had the wrong thermostat installed.
I blew the engine the year after that, and had it rebuilt (I was in college). It ran for two years, and then some of the valves cracked and piston broke, effectively making a V6 a V4.5. I limped the normally 3 1/2 hour drive from Clemson to Charleston in 6 hours at a top speed of 50 MPH (on an interstate where the speed limit was 65 in the mid-1990s). With the windows down. And the heat on.
I traded it in the day after I got home from exams for a 1995 Chevy S10. Great truck.
