New Member Needs Advice!

Hi all, new to the forum. I'm not a Jeep owner yet but i am looking at a purchasing 2005 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. It's nothing special I just need to know if i should expect any issues common to that line at the given mileage. here's the specs:

3.7ltr V6
2WD
107K miles

Pretty much the no frills base model. It's black and looks clean from the pictures.

The asking price is $8000. I was thinking about offering $6000-$6500 and maxing out at $6750. It is owned by a young girl still in high school so i imagine it wasn't driven too roughly. I just hope it was properly maintained. I'll be dealing with her dad mostly(I imagine).

I will get an up close look Tuesday. If everything looks good to me i'm going to have it inspected by inspectmyride(dot)com (the ebay co.) for $130. I just want to know if it's a reliable engine and if i should expect any huge headaches in the near future. I also want too make sure I'm getting a good deal. Thanks in advance!

Re: New Member Needs Advice!

Thanks for the welcomes! any thoughts on the Jeep? i was just reading up that Inspect my ride doesn't do much of mechanical inspection. kind of a waste if you can look at the vehicle yourself.
