2002 Jeep Liberty Renegade 4dr 4WD SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This vehicle is everything that a
college student wants. It is sporty,
fun to drive and a great off road
escape from the rigors of college
campus life. If you need to transport
your friends for some off rading relief
this vehicle ahs it all. Lots of head
room and storage capabilites makes this
vehicle great for transporting
bicycles, kayaks, and anything else you
can do outdoors. You can't go wrong
with this vehicle.


Best Features

Fold down rear seat, roof rack, tinted windows, automatic 4 wheel drive, running side board, remote rear window opener.


Worst Features

Cup holders in the rear should be a little more accessible.

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


Review

I love driving this vehicle. Its the
stopping that is the problem. It
weighs too much not to have ABS
standard. I just had my front brakes
replaced at 25K miles! 4-5 recalls is
not alot on a brand new model, but
these were significant recalls. The
tires are junk. I still have some
miles on mine, but I am getting them
replaced early because they are unsafe
on even damp roads. Other than those
gripes I love this vehicle and will buy
another one if these items have been
improved.


Best Features

Style, Sight Lines, Very nice road handling, Tough body construction.


Worst Features

ABS Standard, better tires, fully folding rear seats, move the window controls.

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


Review

I love my Liberty! This a all around
great SUV with good looks inside and
out, strong engine, solid feel, and
perfect size. Compared to other
vehicles in it's class it is the best
by far. No mechanical problems to
date. For it's weight of 4000 (read
solid feel), it handles and performs
well when needed, great for short
trips to the mall (easy parking) or
long camping trips fully loaded up.


Best Features

Steering wheel controls-Radio and CC, Good looks inside and out, seating position, ice cold AC.


Worst Features

Window controls to door like normal vehicle, better tires (mine squel after 25K on hard cornering), Leather driver seat showing wear, 5-speed auto.

2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr 2WD SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Jeep has serves me well. Used in
Arizona/New Jersey in all sorts of
weather/road conditions.

Pros: Excellent aircon;
Comfortable ride; Unpainted fender and
bumpers on sport model still look new
even though bumped and scratched;
Reliable: only replaced rear window
motor under warranty and ball joints
(recall). Replacing engine and
transmission oil is important to great
running; Brakes are good good but keep
in mind weight of vehicle on wet/icy
roads.

Cons: must slow down in wet; mediocre
Premium CD/radio


Best Features

Take anywhere convenience;great style; awesome aircon; great luggage config; great in heavy rain/flooding; Lou Grubb Service Arizona;inexpensive service: $500/year so far; great gauges; great size for city; good V6 and auto


Worst Features

deeper seat cushion; better handling under heavy breaking at high speed; fuel economy: 18mpg in city and 20mpg (Arizona fuel) 22 (Jersey fuel) on highway; wind noise above 60mph; Bill Luke Arizona sale staff: snakes

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.
