Older model Jeeps are not available at dealerships, due to the rigorous approval process that pre-owned Jeeps undergo before being certified. All certified pre-owned vehicles sold via a Jeep dealership include a 125-point inspection, along with a Carfax history report. In addition to checking for potential safety issues and physical damage, these Jeeps must have less than 75,000 miles and be no more than 5 years old.
Though not available via dealership locations, buyers looking for older model Jeeps can check local car auctions and classifieds. Additionally, online classified websites, such as Auto Trader, Craigslist, and eBay offer sellers a platform to list their inventory, which prospective buyers can browse to find the perfect vehicle. These websites have search engines that allow buyers to input their wanted vehicle, in this case, a 1990 Jeep Cherokee, then pull up any available listings. As many of these sites offer nationwide posting, be sure to check where the Jeep is located, before agreeing to purchase, or if necessary change the filters settings to search only in a preferred location.
