Sporty And Useful — Its a Jeep so the suspension is a little springy or stiff. Love the rear-wheel drive, such a big difference over most daily drivers. It has a wierd harmonic or slight stutter or shaking when in Drive @ idle (like a stop light). Took it to the dealer under warranty and they could not locate the cause or fix it. Had one issue with the rear, drivers-side door, window stopped working and the door wouldn't open or shut. It was in that latched-but-not-closed position. Fixed under warranty. Otherwise, we love the car. Plenty of room for two car seats. The front seats seems a little narrow to me, but I am 300 lbs., and used to driving an old Intrepid. (think living room with a steering wheel.) Engine is nice & torquey, had it pulling trees out in four-low (literally). Took it on a couple of trails, and it kept up easily with my buddys old chevy pick-up. If you have kids, need the car seat room, and can deal with the suspension, go for it!

A Reliable And Fun To Drive Small Suv — It is a true utility vehicle, with comfort and fun for those who do not need a mid or full size SUV. A lot of visibility also makes it an easy rider, especially for urban driving. Love the way it drives. Really fun small SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Perfect First Suv. — I bought this car mainly to carry my gear around between training and the fire station. I was looking for something bigger than my old car, and I always wanted a jeep. This car is perfect for what I needed. I've never had a problem with it, and it would recommend it to anyone looking to buy an SUV.

Great Handeling, Perfect 4 Wheel Drive, Good Fueleconomics — I love the Jeep Liberty, never the less for my work it is a bit small. I really enjoyed driving in the winter, this is the best car for driving on snow and ice I ever had. The car did never let me down.

Surprisingly nimble on the roads for a 4x4, GREAT turning radius.  Workhorse off road.

Cons

A bit sluggish off the line.

Liberty Is Awesome! Too Bad They Don't Make Them Anymore. — I've been a Jeep fan for years and this is my 2nd Liberty. I like anything that's field serviceable when it needs to be. Not much goes wrong on these, but when it does the repairs are cheap and easy. They're great for families / street driving, very safe and really good off road (if you ever want to take it off the road). The best part is that the used ones hold their value very well, so you don't feel like a rube buying something that depreciates quickly as soon as you get behind the wheel.

Jeep Liberty Diesel — This was a Liberty CRD, which was Jeep's Sick Little Experiment into a diesel SUV. Great idea, bad execution, as the tranny couldn't handle the power from the motor. It was a LOT of fun to drive, however. I had a lot of fun playing with the idea, but I think when I want another SUV it'll be a Mercedes.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

A Very Good Snow Belt Car — It works great for camping, tows a camper well. Has a comfortable ride. Small yet roomy. You can haul quite a bit with this little Jeep. It has a short wheel base so it can turn on a dime and squeeze into those tight parking spots.

Beautiful Car — Even though I only had this car for 8 hours I loved it. I drove it around for 5 of the 8 house and I loved how it handled. When I got into an unfortunate car accident the vehicle was totaled sadly... I am looking to buy another soon!!

Good Car If You Have The Money To Fuel It And Repair It — can get around in the snow, rain ice very well can clime rocks and up hills. Its comfy and is a nice ride, has lots of space for a family size car. crappy gas milage, no leather seats, renagade should come with a sun roof, the traction conrtol kind of lags but when you need it it is great love my car and dont want to get rid of it but when its having problems i want to bash it with a baseball bat!!
