ReviewAs fuel prices started to rise I took the Liberty 2.8 CRD for a spin; after the test ride I traded my 2002 Renegade in for it. My last Liberty saved me from serious injury when I hit a deer head on at 60MPH and only did cosmetic damage to it. The diesel Jeep has as much power as the 6 cylinder. I average about 24 miles a gallon in mixed driving and it is one of the most fun cars I have ever owned. I'm 6'4" and it is a little tight but I have driven it all over the east coast with my wife and 3 kids. I am a law enforcement officer and I have to be able to get to work under any conditions and the Liberty has done that for me. The Jeep is a real 4WD and gets the job done.
Best FeaturesIt has a very tight turning radius and is easy to park. The turbo diesel is very peppy in the low end. 500 miles between tankfuls is a pleasure. The car has no pretense; it is an easy to drive SUV that goes almost anywhere.
Worst FeaturesA towing package should come standard with the car. Draining water from the fuel filter should be more straight forward. The in-car tire pressure monitor and control should come standard since the car is so capable off road.
