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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable... LOW maintenance costs

Cons: Not quite big enough for 3 kids and grandpa

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: handling four wheel drive ride

Cons: only v6

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great family vehicle. 4X4. Great working condition.

Cons: n/a

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love jeep how they ride and the way you feel when you drive them!

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Greats looks

Cons: Not enought room for a family of 6

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very smooth ride, reasonably priced vehicle, very happy with it overall.

Cons: Gas mileage is not great, but no SUV will be unless a hybrid

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

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: performance overall

Cons: i would maybe like a little more torque

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Solid Car, Comfortable

Cons: lacks power, too heavy
