Pros

Gets in and out of parking spots easily. Sporty. I love the heated seats. Leather upholstery has held up nicely.

Cons

A/C quit after 62,000 miles. Plastic radiator cracked and had to have engine rebuilt. Not a comfortable road trip car.

Nice Small Suv. — This vehicle has had some problems that I thought were a little premature for the amount of miles on the car at the time. I do love my car though.

Great Vehicle — I had this Jeep for 12 years and never had any major problems with it. It has been well maintained and therefore continues to run without any issues. Actually bought this in September 2001 when they first hit the lot.

Pros

awesome but, sucks if you crash into something

Cons

turns to the right around 70 mph!

95

Good — its an awesome little truck to have where my cousins live. its just that when you get the truck up to 70 mph it starts to go to the right. which is very scary at those speeds. the appearance is not that good anymore it took a nasty hit in the front end and has 2 new fenders and hood that are carbon fiber now and does not match the rest of the truck!!

Pros

Great in the Snow, Fun to Drive. Loaded neatly into a small utility package.

Cons

Fuel consumption. 16MPG at best.

Enjoyable Depending On Your Intended Use. — Fuel consumption. What you gain with a lower rear gear ratio you lose in MPG. It's a trade off. Great in the snow. Has been very reliable. I also own a Chevy Suburban K2500 4x4 and find that I can pack quite a bit into this Jeep Liberty given its smaller appearance.

Good Vehicle — Great utility vehicle small but good towing and function overall, poor gas mileage but all in all a very good pick. I like the fact that this vehicle can tow 5000 pounds and still has a wheel base short enough to do a U-Turn on a two lane road.

Pros

the strength and ability it had to stand any kind of abuse

Cons

terrible brakes, unstable handling when pushed a bit too hard, and bad fuel economy

25

Great Fun And Ruggedness From Jeep — it is an excellent SUV, but if you are looking for one, make sure it has rear disc brakes and ABS, also buying one without four wheel drive is the stupidest mistake ever, if you are not looking for a four wheel drive SUV, look elsewhere, the liberty was designed primarily for off-roading.

My Jeep Thoughts — Thee 2002 jeep liberty is a interesting vehicle. The vehicle 3.7l power tech does a good job at moving the vehicle around but with not a great fuel economy. Its a very fun car to drive very quite on the inside with a good sound system
