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.

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.

08 Jeep Liberty Limited — Its takeoff is to damn slow,although the custom intake helps and gas mileage sucks; other than that its a nice vehicle...Decent factory sound system. its fun to take offroad, top speed 112, it's a little small for me.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Nice Macho Car — Nice new model of the old liberty, has some familiarities with the Dodge Nitro, but has its own particular look, nice to drive, easy to handle very short circle, cool car. After 30000 miles and 2.5 yr, I am still very happy with my Jeep Liberty, no repairs needed and I am not very accurate with service appointments, still a very strong, cool car!!! Lots of space, my labrador loves it.
