2003 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Purchased new in 2003, replaced a snapped hood latch cable in 2008. Replaced original tires at 60,000 miles with Cooper and much quieter ride. Brakes changed twice. Battery died last month after 6 yrs. Right fog light burned out this week. Very reliable. Live in Northern lower Michigan lots of rain, snow and ice. Never any driving issues summer or winter. Trail ride weekly on two tracks and quad trails, drive to work Mon - Fri. Great ride, great handling. Front seats are not comfortable for long rides is my only complaint. I also own 2000 Jeep Wrangler which is fun but rougher riding. Liberty ride is carlike in 4 Wheel drive. Very Reliable.
Much more interior room / leg room than Jeep Wrangler, fit all your gear plus friends. Better car like ride for a 4WD than alot of SUV's I have rode in.
Seats need to be comfortable, the 2003 are hard, uncomfortable. Our 2000 Wrangler has better seats than this vehicle. Higher quality sound system and speakers. Factor speakers poor quality.
