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


Review

We bought the car a few days before an
800 mile trip and didn't have a chance
to break in the car before leaving. It
performed like a champ. I arrived
feeling rested and without body
aches! Aside from routine maintenance
and a recall to tighten up the
suspension system (Jeep was very
accomodating while dealing with the
recall issue), the car has been great.
We'd buy another!


Best Features

Visibility is great. The 4WD is simple to use and very effective. Interior styling and rear leg room.


Worst Features

Relocate the seat warmer buttons so they are easily visible while seated. Improve in-town gas mileage. Provide anti-lock break option (Might be available today). Sun visors that extend to provide protection from sun coming in the front-side windows.

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


Review

This is our first SUV and has proven
to be a fun and reliable vehicle. As
far as gas mileage, I can't understand
all the negative comments, no SUV will
not do any better than the Liberty, in
fact usually less. We are running
Mobil 1 synthetic oil and get 21 1/2
miles per gallon on the road, not bad.


Best Features

Quality construction with attention to detail. Durable seat covers. Good ride for an SUV.


Worst Features

Rear seats would be nice if they folded down flat. Window controls on the doors.

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


Review

We bought one of the first Jeep
Libertys available in July 2001 and
have been pretty happy with it ever
since. We love it for its size and
stylish design. Only serious complaint
is the fact that ours did not come with
antilock brakes and it has slid on
barely wet roads and in the snow even
in 4WD. Once slid through an entire
intersection on a road that could maybe
pass for damp...luckily no one else was
intersecting at the time. Gas mileage
is what finally set us back and we have
decided to trade it in.


Best Features

Looks great! Love the cup holders, 60/40 fold-down rear seat, privacy glass in back, ease of operation.


Worst Features

Weird window power button location took a while to get used to, weak stereo, no sunroof or anti-lock brakes on our moedl. And I really hate the automatic door locking trend. Needs improved performance on wet roads.

Review

I bought my 2002 Liberty in Nov 2001
and I use it for business travel. I
currently have 78000 miles and have had
not one problem with the vehicle. I do
most of my own maintainence and it
still rolls on down the road. Great
Jeep!


Best Features

Small frame, decent gas mileage, ease of use, good power.


Worst Features

a few more interior comfort options would be nice.
