2003 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I drive in NYC and it is a good vehicle for tight parking, driving, and potholes. Nice interior size but not comfortable on long trips. 160,000 miles. Lots of major fixes. Recall on ball joints done. Suspension is too weak for heavy city driving in a heavy vehicle and have never liked it. Wore out the shocks, now springs are shot. Transmission replaced at 130,000, heads at 150,000. AC does not work right even after recharge and fixes. Suspension is noisy and unstable clunky and unstable. Go through a set of brakes every year with rotors that warp easily. Gas mileage is OK but not a miser by any means. Can't trade it in so I'll drive it into the ground. Will not buy another one.
Size. Interior space. Adequate power. 4WD in winter thought the change to high from regular driving is clunky on my Jeep.
The suspension is crap for a heavy vehicle for city driving. Seats are not comfortable.
