2006 Jeep Liberty Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
I was a bit nervous going from a 2003 Jetta wagon that practically drove itself, to an SUV, but absolutely love my new Liberty. After a month of driving I'm getting 20 MPG and love the visibility of being higher up. The Liberty handles very well, has a very small turning radius and excellent power. Ride is a bit bumpier than the Jetta, but I would expect that from an SUV. Seats are comfortable, it corners well, seems quite stable, and handling is very responsive. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my Liberty.
A few more storage nooks in the front would be nice (I miss my sunglasses case above the driver's door) and I'd love to be getting the 30 MPG I had with the Jetta, but know that isn't going to happen with a 6 cylinder.
