Sweet Liberty — The redesigned styling of the Liberty is what initially drew me to consider it when I was in the market. I've found the vehicle to be versatile and quite capable in DEEP snow. As a Paramedic it's imperative that I be able to get to work, the Liberty never let me down. Mechanically I have no issues. Regular oil changes and routine maintenance is all that has been required. I just replaced my original tires at 74,589 miles...Not bad!

Pros

Every once in a while someone from the Jeep community will acknowledge you

Cons

Crazy bad gas mileage, boring design in and out, under powered, cramped in certain areas

Lackluster Wallet Buster — For the most part the Jeep Liberty is just average on most accounts. Unforgettable in most areas and boring in the rest. Not bad, just not great either. The gas mileage was noticeably bad for such a small SUV, the cost of ownership was much higher than originally thought. The engine hardly felt adequate for getting the Jeep up to speed. The SkySlider roof was cool at first but broke down several times and left me in fear of opening it after a while. I'd say Jeep missed the mark, although i'm sure the Trail-Rated and more powerful models were more entertaining.

2008 Liberty — The cars rides well and drives better I love that its four wheel drive so I can go off roading. But it is just not what I need at this time. Overall Great for families and college kids who need some extra space.

Great Vehicle! Fun To Drive. — I enjoyed owning this vehicle. I love the sky slider roof for the summer and the 4x4 for the winter. It is cozy to drive and comfortable space for passengers in the back seat. Over all great vehicle and ride.

True Jeep — It's my sisters jeep that I have drove many of time! The ride is bumpy (but great) had only 2 problems with the car, water in the horn and someone stole all the emblems off the car (idk if that's a true problem) but with them aside I see this a lasting car!

Jeep Liberty — I listed my likes and dislikes of this vehicle in the sections above. Other than that this vehicle is great but it was not built with large families in mind. Options for this vehicle make it very attractive for its price.

Very Good Buy — Comfortable and roomy. Great entertainment system and bluetooth technology. Great beach Car. Fits a lot in trunk. Can remove back seats for for bigger loads. Moon roof lets a lot of light in. Great in snow. leather seats are easy to clean. Love It.

Great Overall Vehicle, Love The Smooth Ride — I bought this vehicle after we drove a rental and fell in love with it. The ride is very smooth, the handling nice, overall very nice ride for an SUV. The newer body style is MUCH roomier than the old style.

performance overall

Cons

Very Good — I really like all the technology that it has, for example the memory for the seating, it tells you the fuel economy and the headlights will turn on automatically when it gets dark. And overall has an amazing appearance and good torque but could be better

Very Nice, Different, Has Its Own Character, Draws Attentions When Its Nice And Clean — I used to own an 01 XJ and sold it a year ago to get the new KK Liberty. It kind of reminded me of the XJ but in a larger package. First thing I noticed is how heavy it is compared to the XJ and the gas pedal is not synchorinized with the engine... its weird.. not like the XJ where you press the gas pedal and the response is instantenous, the whole car shakes because of its power... I did not find this in the new Libby. Ride quality is nice but sometimes its just too soft... maybe with some aftermarket shocks and a little lift this could be fixed. Interior space is much more friendlier and nicer than the old XJ. All in all I was pleased, but I do have one request for JEEP: make the next gen Liberty a 4.0 litre engine with around 270 hp so it can compete with the 4runner.
