"Has every large suv attribute with a small package. Plenty of room for friends and family. Mechanically sound, have owned one for 5 years with no major mechanical defects. Gas mileage a little high but still a lot better than the average large suv."
"the best feature of this wehicle is the information it gives you like service date, tire pressure,gas milege and the list goes on and on. if your too busy or not good at keeping up with this stuff it is very helpful."
"This vehcle has been the most reliable one I've owned - and I almost never bought it after owning a 1995 Grand Cherokee that was the least reliable vehicle I've ever owned. Just for refernce, I've owned 12 cars/trucks/etc."
"The Jeep Liberty has been a good vehicle for me and my two kids (8-6) but it has had its points that you need to know before you pinch that last penny. The interior cloth is one of the worst I have seen in a vehicle. If you get it wet with water it shows as if it were a stain. It takes cleaning the whole seat to get it out once it is there. Another thing is the leg space in the driver side pedal area. I am not a large person but I am tall...I caution you if you are a tall person think twice about purchasing this it just puts your legs in a awkward postion for long trips. It really starts to become uncomfortable. The window switch is in the center and it looks neat but when you are getting out of the Jeep you will lock youself in more often then not because the switch on the door is to lock it. The last thing as a mother I have to caution is the cup holders in the back seat are on the door. If you plan on using them then you must plan on cleaning the door off because it causes the drink to splash out on the door.
I know that all other reports you will look at will be on all of the good things so I thought I would show you some faults."
"I have a 2005 Liberty Limited that I purchased new. I have not had any problems with it. I love the short turning radius and the ease of parking and changing lanes. I do agree with another reviewer that the rear wheel wells do interfere with the entrance/exit into the rear seats. More leg room in the rear passenger area would be nice. I truly love my Jeep and would make the same purchase all over again."
"Our Jeep has been a phenomenal vehicle! We had a total of $100 worth of maintenance since we purchased the vehicle, it is extremely reliable. The safety is excellent as well as performance. We live in the country and we did not have to sacrifice the smooth ride of a car when we switched to the Jeep. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this amazing vehicle."
"I have really loved my Liberty. It could have a bit bigger of a back seat, with the wheel wells not so close to where you need to get in/out. The only "problem" that I have had is the occasional hydroplaning and spinning out when the road starts to get wet. My gas mileage has been pretty good for a SUV, I usually get right at about 20 mpg. It's fun to drive."
"Perfect vehicle for all around. Diesel is quiet, powerful and reliable so far with 25,000 miles. Mileage is as posted hwy 26 but better in the city as we average about 22. Starts instantly in below zero weather, never in a garage."
"Owned since new. This is my second Jeep and love this vehicle better than the Grand Cherokee I had. Garage kept and driven little miles. I am buying a new Liberty. Has towing package. Use only for putting boat in water at beginning of season and taking out at end. Lake is 3 miles from my house."
"I bought this car a 2 weeks ago and for a vehicle that is 5 years old it looks, smells and runs like new! I would recomend this vehicle to my friends or family considering the saftey level and comfortable ride the driver and passangers receive. I do will there we more cup holders though, I only have 3 in this vehicle whereas my previous vehicle had 5."
"The maneuver and the comfort is excellent. The look is not bad either. I have replaced the electrical mechanism for the two back windows. I have replaced the tires and the battery after 72K miles which I thought is really good that I have not done any major repairs. I would highly recommend this car. I have the limited 2002 model and it fits perfect for me. I get a lot of compliments even now because it looks elegant."
"Ordered new in 2002 Limited 4X4. Wife loves it. I think its made for a woman. Not that comfortable for me. Mileage could be better. Resale value poor. Overall very few problems other than recalls. Its great for parking and intown traffic."
"This mid-size SUV rides like a dream - you feel like riding in a luxury vehicle, not a typical SUV. Very good on gas mileage. Enough room in the back with seats laid down to carry quite a bit of miscellaneous cargo."
