First new in 2000-absolutely bulletproof. Very practical w/ generous cargo space. tow hitch bike rack & ski roof rack. Easily handles class IV roads w/ plenty of gear, blasted through 1ft+ snow & rain deluges. Pulled a few stumps out & a stuck car. Fun at drive in with the hatch lid open to the screen. Knuckleheads t-boned it from both sides of the front wheel wells, but kept rolling. Reqd minor repair work, but takes a punch. Decent mpg (~20 mpg) for utility. Great acceleration. Can be bumpy at times, but swallows potholes w/o problems. No major problems beyond routine maintenance. Quality keeps up against any other domestic or import. Jeep, why did you ever stop making these?
4x4 in water and snow. Off-road capability. Heated seats. Acceleration. Tow hitch for towing & hitch bike racks. Roof racks for skis. Generous cargo area. Nice interior layout, fit and finish. Overhead lamps and digital readout for temp & mpg.
Improving mpg (although decent ~20 mpg for 4x4 utility). Optimize ride comfort and off-road utility. Make the Cherokee again please. The liberty cannot hold a candle to the look and utility of the old Cherokees.
