Transmission Failure at 90,000

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

Review

For the first 9+ years the Liberty did very well as far as liability, other than the several recalls. Even the original battery lasted 9 years. Then at about 90,000 it started to have problems. We had to rebuild the transmission at a cost of $3,400. There's a leak requiring new seals on the rear differential, and the HVAC fan resistor is shot so we only get speeds 3 and 4. After spending so much on the transmission we will go ahead and fix the rest, and try to get another 50,000 out of it but I'm not very optimistic. It is fun to drive, the body and interior are like new and it handles well in snow.
