I am not trying to get in any debate about foreign vs. domestic vehicles. All I am saying is I should of done more research before chosen the Liberty. Liberty is straight up danger even hugging slight curve on highway, fuel economy is poor consider is only a V6, gear ratio is horrific which leads to poor MPG. Back seats are tight, and the transmission has taken up much of the leg room of the driver and passenger. If I can do all over, I will go with a Suburban or a Tahoe. On the side note, sometimes I wish I can get the cars that people drive over in Europe. As much as we don't want to admit, they make better cars that we do here in America. Moreover, even Japanese and Korean cars are over taken us. American automotive industry really need to step up.Report it
It sounds to me like you bought someone else's worn out junk and now you are mad about it. Surely you weren't expecting a like new car experience with that many miles on it! Highway miles? Why is that important? Miles are miles. People have this strange idea that miles driven on the highway somehow don't count. WRONG! Miles are miles. Every single car with high miles I see for sale says "Highway Miles" in the ad. According to the classifieds, NOBODY EVER drives in the city... EVER! If you hate it as bad as you say, and it looks cheap inside and out, then why did you buy it? ANY vehicle with over 200k miles will need repairs. Not just American brands. Foreign cars wear out too! If you want good mileage, then you don't want an SUV.Report it
you're complaining and it has 200k on the clock when you bought it? Wow - Rule of thumb - buy a used car with 100k on it - plan to spend $1000 to get it up to par. 200k double that. You are buying a car someone else obviously didn't maintain well. ALL cars need maintenance. Even your precious foreign cars. Then try to replace their tranny or engine. Double the cost of a Jeep. Go to the junk yards and see which cars are crumpled messes - all the foreign tin cans.Report it
OK so instead of straddling the fence, I am going to argue both sides. If you think that American brands have caught up in quality with the Japanese brands than you are delusional but not as delusional as someone who thinks they can buy a car of any origin with 200k and think they will not have problems.Report it
