My Little Baby — Absolutely amazing car. Bought it the day it came onto the lot. Extremely reliable and gets great gas mileage for an SUV. The 4WD on this car is unreal, it can push through snow as if it was a Hummer. Take it rock climbing, skiing, everywhere. Yet most commonly it is my commuter vehicle between two jobs and school. Overall amazing vehicle.

Very Reliable, Bad On Gas — Pretty solid, strong, reliable vehicle. Some components seem to not hold up over time though. Have put 75k miles on my 2004. Original window motors have high chance of failure, cost around $400 to replace each one. Had 3 replaced. Some driver's seat components have failed. Seatback adjustment lever broke off. Seatbelt lock broke, seatbelt fraying, and leather prematurely worn. Gets the same gas mileage as a much larger full size truck(16city/20hwy). Plenty of cargo space. Overall I have enjoyed my vehicle. Wish it got better gas mileage and more robust interior parts.

Jeep — Probably not going to own another Jeep just because of gas mileage, but the vehicle did what we needed it to do. It needed a lot of maintenance but ran well overall. It's more of a vehicle for someone into camping or outdoor stuff or a college kid.

Super Clean Little Suv Greta First Car — I liked this car it was fun to drive and could do much of what the larger SUV's could do. If given the option it performs better off road thanthe larger ones as well. You will never worry about getting to the station either.

Pros

Great vehicle for the winter.  I love the feel of a Jeep as I have had a few in the past.

Cons

What's up with the Gas spewing issue when I fill the tank?

It Gets You Were Ever You Need To Go. — Glad to have this one. So far so good, just purchased after selling Betsy Ross, my red 2001 Camaro. Follow me and keep up to date on my experiences with Jack Flash, the replacement. My Betsy was a great car too, however it wasn't fair to put her through the Winter months where I live now. Besides I needed steady transportation for the winter with my new job. In steps Jack Flash. My 2004 Jeep Liberty helps me get to where I need to go no matter what the weather outside. Great vehicle when people depend on you to be there for them.

Pros

Rides great, no mechanical problems yet, easy to work on, parts aren't expensive, looks good, does well offroad for being stock.

Cons

None, yet.

A+ — I've only owned it for 7 months, but so far I love it. I wish they made the Renegade model with the diesel engine. Currently I'm averaging about 20mpg, so it isn't too bad. I took off the roof rack because I think it looks better without it. Looking at the engine, everything is fairly easy to get to and oil changes are cake. From what I've read, lifts aren't too hard to install either.

Fun, Sporty Car, Safe, Reliable, No Repairs Neccessary — fast acceleration, brakes very good, always in control driving this car, depends on how you drive of course, i felt safe and had fun to drive it. Need smaller car, no more family members to drive around. Last half year drove it only to work and shopping.

My Mini Hemi — Had to replace the Waterpump at 55,000. It cost about $53 for the pump and my wife and I installed it our selfs. Performance is good. I like how it looks. Maintenance isn't to bad just that water pump. I love my Jeep. Definitely want to keep it for awhile.
