2002 GC-LTD WJ general feedback
Hi everyone. We've had this 2002 GC-LTD for about 5 years now. It has a total of 83k miles on it and is kept in beautiful condition. In that time, we've dealt with the bad window motors, complete replacement of the heat/air controller panel, brakes, rotors, master cylinder, crankshaft sensor < that one really burned me, because the car dropped dead while in the middle of a busy main road with no warning whatsoever. Each repair has been costly, and frankly, I'm at a crossroads as to continue fixing things or dump the vehicle. We've only put about 18k miles on it in the 5 yrs. since we bought it. Yesterday, the fan relay went out on it (turned off engine, fan kept running; pulled fuse to stop it). I've got a great mechanic, but I don't want to own cars I can't trust.
My question to y'all is: with all the problems that I'm reading in all these threads that everyone is experiencing, is this vehicle worth keeping and fixing ($$$$), or should I move on to something else? Or, is this just the nature of the beast, being a highly electronic vehicle. We also have 2 Wranglers (one a 2012, and the other a '99) and those 2 don't give us half the fits that the Cherokee does (of course the new YK is under warranty and too new to be trouble). Thanks for your opinions!
