2004 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Reliability, unique looks, fun to drive, 4WD takes care of all problems in snow, rain and on ice. Because of its short length it is very easy to handle in traffic, parking lots, etc.
Maybe make it a bit longer so the back seat will fold flat, have more leg room and have a little bit more storage in back.
