Pros

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.

The 4WD

Cons

My engine troubles

2006 Jeep Liberty Sport — Gas mileage is not that great. I have also had major engine work done on it. I bought it used so it could be from the previous owner, but It would have cost me 1800 if it wasn't still under warranty. It still has problems with the engine and I've taken it back to the dealer but they can't find anything wrong with it. I owned another Jeep Liberty before my previous one and it was fine, so I think I just got a "bad" apple. This car is great for getting into tough areas and the 4WD is a nice feature. The only thing is in the Sport Model it only has PT 4WD so it isn't engaged all the time, the Limited edition has FT4WD so it might work a little better. If you invest in more aggresive tires the jeep will go through anything!

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!

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.

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.

My Liberty — There's not much that I don't like about this Jeep. I've loved it from the minute I bought it brand new off the show room floor. The only thing I would change is the back seat leg room. It left a little to be desired :)

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.

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.

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!!
