    Love My Liberty — I'm considering a 2008 with the rag top, but I wonder how well it will hold up in the Northeast winters !!

    Pros: High up view, turns on a dime, a fun car to drive, not afraid to take  it on some really backwoods roads!

    Cons: very thirsty!!

    I Love It! — I have had this car since it was brand new. It now has 52000 miles and it is great. It drives well and is a lot of fun. The seats are very comfortable. It gets me anywhere I need to be in any weather (except hail). My only complaints are the poor fuel economy, the lack of power, and the fact it takes nothing to warp the brake rotors. With it being a Daimler Chrysler model, the parts are expensive. Overall it is a great vehicle I would recommend to anyone!

    Pros: Comfortable, capable, reliable, attractive, online forums (http://www.lostkjs.com and http://www.jeepkj.com)

    Cons: fuel economy, power, price of parts, stock brake rotors warp easily

    Most Comfortable Seats Ever Experienced In A Car! — The interior is only of a mediocre quality, and so is everything else. But compared o the price, there is nothing better on the market!

    Pros: Design, Trunk space, Seats, Sound system

    Cons: Quality, Gas consumption

    The Jeep Liberty Is About As Good As It Gets — Bought new in 2002, but a 2003 Liberty Sport 4x4. This is by far, the best vehicle I've ever owned. It's also the only one I've ever been in a wreck with. I've had no major issues mechanically with this vehicle. I've done all my own oil and filter changes, and it's a breeze to change the oil and filter. You don't even have to jack it up! Good acceleration, 30,000 miles between tune-ups, and virtually a maintenance free vehicle. Only attention I give it is 3 month oil and filter changes and a 30,000 mile service for the transmission....also a tune-up and a coolant flush every 3 years. Good interior, but the driver's seat seems at a very weird angle to me....perhaps this makes the Jeep a little tiring on long drives. Just an update: Have had the vehicle for 12 years, and has almost 100,000 miles on it. The last 30,000 miles have been its best. Interior and exterior have held together very well considering the extreme climate here. Now, if only Jeep could figure out a way to get 30 mpg on a vehicle like this. It would be a winner hands down! Very strongly built. I slid on ice last winter and slammed rear end first into a concrete center divider with damage to the rear door and spare tire assembly. It was probably my fault as I didn't have it in 4wd at the time. Speaking of 4WD....it's good when in 4WD Hi. I don't have a clue what the 4WD LO is for, and I've never used it. We have snow for 6 months of the year around here, so this Jeep is a perfect vehicle for that. Concerning squeaks and rattles...the dashboard has an annoying rattle behind the speedometer, but I've learned to live with it. Excellent AM/FM/CD stereo..with beautiful sound. The only three minor complaints I would have with the Jeep Liberty is brake rotor noise from the rear when the rotors are wet and you're backing up, slight front end vibration at higher speeds, which seems endemic no matter what tires you put on, or how perfectly they're balanced, and poor gas mileage. There is a trick to increasing your gas mileage....don't go over 60mph on the freeway, because then it sucks gas like a pig. It is a fun, comfortable, vehicle to drive. It looks good, and it's reliable as hell. Could one ask for much more????

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good in snow, very reliable mechanically, good exterior paint

    Cons: sucks gas, some interior dashboard rattles, occasional rear brake rotor noise

    All Around Good Ride! — I thoroughly enjoy this vehicle the 4x4 never left me stranded this winter and we had a couple ten inch snows. We live on a gravel road where they do not plow and there were no problems. Love the heated seats and now the cold air. It gets so cold I have to turn it down. It has CD player and a great stereo. All leather and all the options available. All working great.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4 Wheel drive, is great in the rain and snow. Fun to drive.

    Cons: Need bigger vehicle to put a receiver hitch on and pull trailer or pop up.
