Jeep Cherokee??? Under what circumstances would this be? the 4.0 definitely, the V8, I don't know. Jetta 1.8t's are not really fast without some serious work. I've found my car is quicker than most of the "sport compacts" made before 2002. The new stuff comming out (srt-4, GTi VR6, svt focus, SE-R Spec v) is getting faster.
