    1994 jeep grand cherokee in very good condition
    inline 6 with 106,000 miles
    original owner
    the only real problem is with the ac - the freon is leaking and instead of fixing the problem what is done is for the ac new freon is put in at the beginning of the spring and taken out at the end - costs 40 dollars
    drove nice
    power windows locks.... cloth seats, dark green exterior

    b4 i make the deal final it will be taken to a mechanic

    they are asking 4500 neg.

    First of all (nit-picking) they never had a V6, it was an inline 6.
    Second of all, if the A/C problem is a bad evaporator it is major money to repair. I wouldn't take someone's word about how long a recharge of the A/C lasts if they actually told you that they have the refrigerant drained at the end of the season :greddy:. Another thing, if they really have never had the A/C recharged the system is going to need to be converted to R134A, which you are looking at around $100 for someone to do (I am guessing, been a couple years since I've done A/C repair).

    My friend picked up a 92 with 116,000 miles and everything worked perfect for 1,200 bucks so I dont know if he got a good deal or what but 4500 seems a little high. Look around to find the best deal before you purchase, maybe my friend got a real good deal, but he paid a lot less, and the body is perfect too, very little rust on the left rear wheel well.

    My buddy got a 1994 Grand Cherokee Limited Laredo w/88,000 miles and he got it for $4300. It was in mint condition and runs wonderfully. Also it has the 5.2 V8. So i would be saying $3500 tops, unless they fix the AC problem for you, then maybe $3700
