I have never owned either a Jeep Cherokee nor a 4Runner. I do belong to a 4 wheel drive club where members owned or have owned both types vehicles. It is my observation that they both break the same percentage of time. One member spent close to $5,000 over 3 years trying to get his 4 Runner from dying on a random basis. He finally gave up, sold it and left the state. At present, there are four Cherokees and no 4 Runners in the club.
Both companies put out both the best vehicles to leave the production line and the biggest lemons known to man. Over the long run, both supply an overwhelming volumn of good vehicles. Otherwise, those models would not have survived. You pay your money and take your chances.
