2004 Jeep Liberty Renegade 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5M)
Bought my Liberty Renegade used - 40k miles on it. There are some minor quirks to it I find annoying, but overall I love my Liberty! I found documentation in my owner's manual from the previous owner- apparently the transmission issue was handled by him (Thank You!). This Jeep is a ball to drive and handles better than any SUV I've ever driven. One note: Lose the Goodyear RS tires. They slip on wet roads; they won't get the opportunity to try snow/ice. No way!
Open cabin. My previous vehicle was an F-150, so a cramped cabin just won't do. This thing handles like a car and is surprisingly great off-road. Stereo on the Renegade package is wonderful.
Interior storage. Glove box is only storage inside the vehicle. Window controls on DOOR. Feel like I'm driving a 1987 Fiero with those stupid things. Stock tires are junk. How do they get $150 a piece for those things?
