Won't Die
By car_guy_93 on


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


This car just won't die!My wife has been driving hers for the past few years,now has 187k on it and still truckin'. We have had some issues, entire exhaust system,some front end work, but nothing huge and serious, knock on wood! We did have unresolved 4WD issues last winter...we will see about this one! Definitely a noisy ride, then again we have had exhaust issues. Theres also plenty of loose 'clunky' sounds that our mechanic cannot find, that make me a little nervous. I wouldn't label this car particularly reliable or unreliable. I will say its a blast to drive and has excellent pickup, and my car is 6 years newer. You would have to rip it out of my wife's hands for her to get rid of it!

Best Features

Sunroof, Love the sunroof. Four Wheel Drive (when it works). The height is perfect, and the grill guard gives it that extra edge.

Worst Features

Reliability, and generalized parts.
