I just saw in the "Our Beloved Cherokees" thread that Cherokees and Grand Cherokees qualify for the "Cash for Clunkers" boondoggle. They should exclude manual transmissions. I just got 33 mpg hwy on our "new" manual '01 with 101,000 miles [correct 225 tires], and still get 26-28 mpg on our old '87 with 216,000 miles [correct 215 tires]. If the feds want to increase mileage, maybe they should give $4500 to people who agree to buy a manual transmission, instead of destroying functional vehicles. And Chrysler should never have discontinued AMC's classic 4 ltr straight-6 Cherokee. Shame on you Wolfgang Bernhard and acquiescing execs! Instant karma gonna get you!
