I have no Cons about this vehicle at all.

Perfect — I honestly wish I would have never traded off my Liberty. It was the perfect vehicle for traveling, driving to work, or going camping. I will have a Jeep again. I am broken hearted they quit making the Liberty. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone.

My Liberty Is Cool But Needs Upgrades — this car is fairly good on gas, especially on those long trips. the performance is alright, it gets up and goes when it needs to. maybe the speakers could handle a bit more. i like my music loud. there's usually enough space for all of my stuff.

I Love My Jeep — 1 week ago I bought the Jeep Liberty. I am in love with Jeep. Gorgeous, super comfortable, spend a little gasoline, but nothing extreme. I feel very safe driving in the jeep liberty and it is a very comfortable car with a nice trunk!

Great Ride — My Lifted Diesel 4x4 is comfortable and sporty, love the compact size, i can tows tons and get good fuel mileage. It does it all. Minor issues but nothing really bad. We use it for off-road fun and commuting. a Head turner too. Lots of guys and girls want to buy it.

A Fun Car To Drive — this car is fun to drive. it's no powerhouse, though. gas mileage on highway is pretty decent. 20 - 24 mpg. gas mileage in town is pretty terrible 13 - 15 mpg great looking little buggy overall body and paint hols up well.

Pros

In Colorado it is nice to have a 4x4 that does break the wallet.  Highway driving about 23mpg, great compaired to my old Xterra.  It handles great and has great pick up.  It's also roomy and great for road trips.

Cons

Well like I said, it is not a car.  Gas engines are rather thirsty at the pump compaired to a car.  and it does have less cargo space than some of its competitors.

Capable & Comfortable Compact Suv — Extremely capable off-road, creative interior design, still a Jeep at heart. Exterior appearance changes in 2005 include a new front fascia, grille, fender flares and body side moldings. Interior upgrades include relocated power window switches, new instrument panel cluster graphics and trim bezels and improved seat comfort. The Liberty handles really easy, it is a safe ride and has a good bit of power with the 3.7L v6 Sport model. It is fun to drive and take to the mountains.

Strong Engine But Too Loud In Cockpit — A fairly average vehicle in every respect, good engine behaves well on the road but what really lets this car down is comfit and the horrid noise of the 2.7CRD engine it like a tractor after about 15-20mins it really get on your nerves, needs more sound insulation alot more.
