Extremely off-road capable

Review

Bought this Jeep brand new in 2004 & has never been in the repair shop once until July 2008, for routine maintenance. When I bought new I had the dealer install the skid plate group, tow hooks & rock rails. I have taken this Jeep off-road many times & it's quite impressive, I believe it's more rugged than most people realize. I should know because I have previously owned a 1946 CJ2-A & also a 1972 CJ-6. I do most of my 4 wheeling in Michigan & I was honestly surprised at some of the muddy situations I was able to get out of. One thing I've noticed as a 43 year old male over the last 4 years, this car is very popular with the woman. In fact my wife loves this car because it's reliable & small

Wife loves it!

Review

My wife bought this Jeep for work. She love it's quickness, handling, surprisingly decent gas mileage for a v6 its and maneuverability (turn radius). I would not recommend it for extremely long trips due to the short wheel base, keep trips to 100 miles or less. It has had a few recalls which our local dealership has been very quick at responding to. There is a little rust bubbling under the paint at the pop up Glass at rear door just under the third brake lite at the welding seam. It's covered again by jeeps 5 year 100,000 mile warranty. Wife says she will always own a Jeep.

After over 4 years we are very happy with our first Jeep. My wife wouldn't trade it even up for a new Cadillac. Very reliable. Feels, looks & rides like the day we brought it home. Comfortable and ample room for good size adults in front seats. Only new tires, one recall, and 3 warranty repairs (that were fixed right the first time) through 50K. No, it's not perfect. It's not a big SUV. No back seat leg room. Rear seat does not fold flat and it does ride a bit rough over bumps(but it is a 4WD Jeep). You aren't going to haul a lot of stuff or big stuff in this, but we new all this and bought accordingly. Would highly recommend as long as you check everything out and know what you are getting.

Nonexistent warranty

Review

I special ordered a liberty for my wife to drive back and forth to work adding skid plates, limited slip R/E and selectrac trans as we have to drive on a steep shale rd to get home. At 15K the trans started to overheat and we took it to Lithia dodge in Concord CA, they told me that they wouldn't cover any damage because we "rock crawled" the vehicle. I tried to get help from Jeep.com and couldn't even get them to give me their last name (plausible deniability?) I finally paid $2200. to get the trans repaired at a private shop. (Lithia wanted $8k). It broke down again after a few months and the private shop narrowed the problem to a factory defect in the t/case. Don't buy one!

Power Window Regulator

Review

From reading most of the reviews, everyone really likes this vehicle and so do I. There is one thing you need to know (and you can check it out on Google) The power window regulators have some parts made of plastic. This week was the third time my back windows broke (dropped down) First time it was under warranty. Second time dealer charged me $200 and I hope the third time will not be more than last time. Just thought you might want to check this out. I would trade it on a new one, but I understand they all have the same problem. Guess you could look at it this way. Seems only one breaks each year, Oh I forgot to tell you. The brake has nothing to do with use, they just drop down.Back to Shop

First and Last

This is my first Jeep and probably last. Terrible gas mileage and a maintenance nightmare if you have to work on it. Even changing the oil is a hassle. Check engine light is always coming on and going off.

Review

I bought this Jeep two months ago. Within a week I noticed the transmission slipping, rear-end popping and the wheel bearings making noise. As the second owner, I transferred the warranty and the dealership replaced the transmission and fixed the rest of it with 45,000 miles. I thought I made a mistake but now that its fixed, its doing great and I love it. It really is as capable as my wrangler I traded and I can actually use it during the week. Not just let it sit at home as just a weekend toy. Mine is an automatic and I usually let it shift about 2500rpms which takes off pretty good and doesn't get left in the dust completely. I also do alot of city driving and this gets me about 18-20mpg

I Love My Jeep!

Review

i bought my Jeep Liberty used with 12,000 miles on it. It has been the best car ever. The only problem I had with it (which really is very minor) is that the steering wheel was peeling a little, so I took it to the dealership and they replaced it, no questions asked. There was a campaign on it related to the ball-joints; I'm not sure what that was about, I never had any trouble. I've got a little over 60K miles on it now, and we're still going strong. There have been some squeaky noises from the front suspension, but no major problems. Love it!

My Jeep has been great. Very reliable and can handle all of the elements, snow, rain, wind. Excellent at high elevations, grips the road. A little bit of a bumpy ride but hey it's a Jeep. No mechanical issues at all. Regular maintenance. Very zippy. I have driven it in the mountains and across the rivers and it can handle it
