2002 Jeep Liberty Limited 4dr 2WD SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My Honda CR-V's performance at 60k miles was getting questionable so I traded into a used Liberty with almost every option. I really love it, as I am very picky. It handles well and has a powerful engine which makes driving it a hoot! It feels like an expensive luxury vehicle though it was quite affordable.


Best Features

moonroof, leather, stereo controls on steering wheel,powerful V6 engine, interior and exterior styling, decent gas mileage (I was expecting worse after the CR-V, but it's not horrible)


Worst Features

I slide in the rain when turning, which is very scary; Also needs a lot of room to brake. A larger glove box, reclining rear seats and perhaps a tetch more rear cargo space. Also the handles on the inside roof are coming loose.

2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr 4WD SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Our Jeep Liberty has been a fun and very reliable vehicle thus far. I agree with the other ratees, the 2002 Liberty did not come with the ABS. My wife complained about sliding on wet pavements, did not believe her until I went sliding thru intersection at only 20 mph. Now wife is afraid to drive in rain or snow.


Best Features

Very easy to park!!!


Worst Features

Definately needed anti lock brakes.

Review

My Liberty is white and I wished I could have a red one. Other than that I do not have much to complain about, except the mileage is horrifying. It gets terrible gas mileage.


Best Features

I like the outside look of my Liberty. It is fun to drive on long trips and around town.


Worst Features

The gas mileage needs improvement, the location of the seat warmer and the rear seats need to fold down.

Review

I love my little Liberty! I have had it for 2 and 1/2 years and it has only been in the shop for routine oil changes and the recall for ball joint. No problems with heating, cooling or anything. I totally enjoy this vehicle. It could have a little more trunk space but then it wouldn't be the sporty little SUV that it is. I do have to say that I really dislike Daimler Chrysler for the customer no-service. The ball joint recall letter never arrived and the telephone folks are abysmal. Probably would think long and hard before I buy another one of their products. But I do love my Liberty and hopefully will continue too.


Best Features

Heated seats, round dashboard/interior designs, cool brushed metal look, radio controls on steering wheel


Worst Features

gas mileage could be better but its not terrible. Especially now that gas is $2 a gallon and more.

Review

I have had no problems with this little SUV except with the breaks. I had to get my rotors smoothed the first year and I have slid/had brakes lock at least 3 TIMES in wet weather. Never had an accident in my life but the lack of ABS and the weight of this car make it dangerous. I have hit both the left and right front tires on curbs causing hundreds of dollars of repairs and once slid right into an intersection. The skid has been recreated by others driving my Liberty. Repeated trips to the dealership and they say nothing is wrong (grinding the rotors first year is normal?)


Best Features

Interior is classy, nice. Great pick- up with the V-6 when trying to pass.


Worst Features

Something is definately wrong with the braking package and or tires. Stopping is NOT good.
