2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr 4WD SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my Liberty in 2007 and it has been the best car I have ever owned. When I bought the Jeep it had 100K on it but I was on a limited budget and purchased an extended warranty. I never even had to use the warranty. I have not had 1 problem with this car! I have put over 40k on my Jeep and it is still more reliable than any car I've ever owned. I wouldn't be scared to drive this car anywhere I had to go on the spur of the moment. If you're nervous of how many miles a Liberty can get on it- I am at 143k and still going strong!!!
The 4wd is a lot of fun and it feels like a very safe ride. I actually did have a small fender bender which caused the other car $2500 in damage and my Jeep didn't even get a scratch on it!
The gas mileage could use a little bit improvement and I also do not like the cloth on my seats- they stain when even water gets on them. I have shampooed them and the gray still seems dark. Aside from that this Jeep is perfect. I will definitely be buying another!!!
