    ive been offered from a family member the chance to purchase a 1995 jeep
    grand cherokee orvis edition v8 100,000 miles in excellent condition.having
    this person purchased this vehicle new,they have always had the vehicle
    maintained.only thing it needs is 4 new tires.i went to and if
    purchased from a private party i would expect to pay in value is
    5625 and dealer used car retail is 9550.i have been offered this vehicle for
    4500.this would be my 1st jeep in the family,how much more life does this thing
    have?i currently own a dodge caravan and hate it.anyone have an opinion?i think
    the price is fair,but not sure on the chrysler line.

  2. If it has had good maintenance and you continue with good maintenance,
    it should easily go another 100,000 miles.

  3. Hello,
    As a jeep owner I can honestly tell you it is very reliable and a tough
    vehicle to kill. As long as you keep up on the maintenance and oil changes the
    motor should last well over 200,000 miles. I have a friend who owns a 94 Grand
    Cherokee and she has over 180,000 miles and still running strong. The only
    major component she replaced was the Timing Belt and of course Water Pump and
    that was around 120,000.
