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

performance overall

Cons

i would maybe like a little more torque

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

Looks, features, size.

Cons

Fuel consumption.

Perfect Compromise Between Classic Jeep Design And Modern Suv Features. — Wonderful experience driving it. The design is also more appealing to me. Gives younger drivers like me an alternative to the "Dad's" Grand Cherokee. Has a tough and funky outlook with all the features of a Grand Cherokee.

Pros

Looks better, more room, spare tire not on rear as before

Cons

Same small engine as 07, but has 200 more pounds to pull.

Looks Better Than An 07, But Has Same Weak Engine — I am looking to buy a 2008 Jeep liberty, but may change my mind because of the 200 more pounds of weight in the 2008 and has the same small 3.7L, V-6 engine. This will equal a vey sluggish car.

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.
