2004 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We bought this vehicle with 22k miles on it about 3 years ago. It now has 75k miles on it. We have had basically no problems with this vehicle, and the engine seems bulletproof, which is pleasantly surprising to me. The 4WD is incredible in the New England winters, and the 3.7L straight 6 is quite peppy (but loud). We have taken this on a few long road trips and it's not too comfortable for extended periods of time. The seats are hard and offer no lumbar or lateral support, and also no adjustable head rest. The radio and HVAC controls are large, easy to use, and located right where you want them. MPG is tolerable if you are easy on the gas.
Excellent 4WD system. Powerful engine. Well thought out interior layout. Full size spare tire. Dependability.
More comfortable seats. Move window controls to doors instead of middle console.
