"I bought this car for my family of 5 we have had a few probblems, but what is to expect form a new car other than that we love this car it is great for everything from family outings to just running the kids around"
"Bought my Liberty Renegade in 2003 and it's been good ever since. Going on more than 90,000 miles and other than changing the battery, I've had no problems. It's roomy, pretty good gas milage (20mpg for me), can haul some stuff. I'm looking to buy a truck because I can't go to the lumber yard a pick up building materials with it. All around a good starter vehicle at a reasonable price."
"Overall, I am mostly happy with this mid-size SUV. It handles very well, with quick-response steering. The small turning radius is a plus in tight spots, which may be contrary to what one might expect from an SUV. The interior is nice, with only a couple small drawbacks - the headrests must be removed from the back seats when one wishes to lay them down. With the seats down, the cargo area is amply sufficient for larger items like a recliner or medium-sized dresser. When the seats are in their upright position, there is plenty of room for groceries and such. However, there is no space to tuck things like an emergency kit or small toolkit away. (A space could have been built into the side-walls, or under the flooring - and would be quite useful.) The dashboard is well-designed, and easy to understand. The cruise & stereo controls are built into the steering wheel front & back, and the in-dash 6 disc CD changer are all easy to operate. The heated seats are a nice touch, and allow one to warm-up quickly, without having to wait for the car's heater to kick in. The glove compartment is just that - a 'glove box' - and lightweight gloves at best. Maps and such will have to be stored in the driver & passenger door panels. (This includes the owner's manual and other important papers.)
I'm also a bit surprised that the original tires are not of the quality one would expect from a "Trail Rated" vehicle. After only a little more than a month of driving on gravel roads I had to buy new tires capable of handling this type of terrain. Even the dealership's service manager told me that the original tires were intended mostly for street use.
Despite these small imperfections, I really like my new Jeep Liberty."
