2003 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
Mom bought this car brand new in 2003, and I received it when she left the country in 2006. Overall, it has been reliable. Only major things I had to fix so far are the rear tailgate handle (pulled the handle, tailgate wouldn't open) & stock speakers started rattling and had to be replaced. Tailgate was EXPENSIVE to fix. Comfort-wise, I have started to notice some back discomfort after mid- to long-range trips, but otherwise leather seats are nice. Aesthetic-wise, the "abruptness" of the dash (or lack thereof) is a major detractor. It feels like you are sitting facing a wall, not a car dash. Gas mileage is downright awful. I average 17.5 with basic commuting.
