2005 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
After 75,000 miles, I had to replace the transmission at a cost of nearly $3000. One would think you could get just a little more mileage than that. The water pump went out at 58,000 miles. Just in time to be covered by the warranty. A lot of rattling which is typical of Jeeps as they age. Goes good in the snow, which is what I'm going to use it for now. But wouldn't buy another one for everyday commuting.
My 2005 Liberty CRD has 78,000 and just started throwing tranmission and transaxle control codes. It also started shifting REALLY hard from P to Drive and as is shifts up through gears. Sigh, why can't American auto manufacturers put quality first.... oh wait, I know. Quality costs money that they don't have because the cost of a union employee with benefits to bolt on car parts is $65K-$120K per year.... thanks UAW!!
