maybe....

as most of you are aware i am respraying my car, once its done i am going to be selling it, (i hope to get $9000 for it)

got home from work today and my dad had a proposition for me, he has a 1997 model jeep cherokee, perfect condition, not a single dent or scratch, its got half leather, half velour, elec windows/mirrors/sunroof, towbar, driving lights, an expensive alpine mp3 cd player, and the best part, not even 110,000kms!!

he said he would sell it to me for $13,000, and its currently insured for $20,000!

ive driven it a few times and its got heaps of power, its handeling isnt great but hey its a 4wd, and its got more than enough power compared to its handeling capabitlities,

what do u guys think? obviously its not an e-series falcon but its still an inline six!!

i need some opinions

Re: maybe....

mmmm... i don't know i heard there were problems with these jeeps or something a while back

but still if you like it then get it it seems like a good deal seeing as they usually go for around 20,000 still in the "auto super market" magazine
