If you're after a four-wheel-drive used car that's up to the job of off-road driving, Jeep is one of the few brands that you can rely on. Sometimes the road-going performance of Jeep's models suffered as a result of the mud-plugging ability that's built-in but the distinctive looks and well-appointed cabins have been enough to convince many.

Because of their off-road focus, buyers of second hand Jeeps should take extra care to ascertain that the vehicle they're looking at hasn't had too hard a life. The Jeep Wrangler is pretty extreme by most standards, very capable off-road but a little trying on the black-top. It's far better to look to the Cherokee used cars if you plan on regularly driving on the road. The Cherokee was originally a full size family 4x4 but the model launched in 2001 that's more commonly available to second hand car buyers these days was noticeably smaller. This was because a larger Grand Cherokee had slotted in above. The Commander was a larger seven-seat version of the Grand Cherokee that arrived in 2006 and its imposing squared-off looks make it a distinctive pre-owned choice. In 2007, Jeep expanded the lower end of its range with the Patriot and the Compass, the latter being the first Jeep designed expressly for road use. With its all-American heritage and off-road expertise, the Jeep brand has as clearly defined an image as you'll encounter on the UK car market. If it's your cup of tea, there's every reason to consider buying a used Jeep.
