Saved me in a rollover
By siii on
2004 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
I loved loved loved my Jeep Liberty.
I bought it at 108k and drove it for 2 years. I also drove it home, 500+ miles away at least once a month.
The pickup and acceleration is slower than other cars, and the gas mileage was usually 20 mpg (highway).
Weird noise in the rear breaks when he was running at ~30mph but it stopped over 40mph.
Always had it since I changed the breaks.
Sturdy engine even in near 0 degrees temperatures.
Easy switch from 2 wheel to 4-wheel drive.
I loved the "Jeep" look.
I don't like the newer Liberty models.
High ground clearance for snowbanks
One major problem was it's tendency to rollover at high speeds.
I was driving on a highway when another car came into my lane and I had to hit the breaks hard.
I served, rolled over 360 degrees. The roof bent in and windows crushed (totaled), but I was completely unhurt from the accident.
I understand that it has a high ground clearance, so it's more prone for a rollover.
On another note, gas mileage was terrible.
