2006 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I needed a small SUV that was good on gas, has a real tow rating (I have a couple of quad's, thats how much I like getting off road) and could get dirty. Isnt that what SUVs are for? Im not sure how they call the Honda CR-V a SUV? I narrowed it down to the Jeep Liberty and the Nissan Xterra. Jeep gave me the best deal! Nissan really likes their Xterra. I bought this Jeep Liberty in the middle of a snow storm (Denver Colorado) and it been snowing ever since. This Jeep will go anywhere you point it. Best snow vehicle I ever had! And I have had a lot of vehicles. My first Jeep and I love it. Cant wait to take it off road in Moab this spring!
3.7 v6 power, 6 speed manual trans, price, real off road capable. Tow rating.
Wheels! Fill up with snow/water then it freezes making wheels out of balance.
