I absolutely love my Liberty -- I have had the best winter driving (in New England) of my LIFE this year! The Jeep is powerful and confident on snowy and slippery roads -- I rarely needed 4WD. However, I am only a 'townie' driver, and I am averaging only 11-12 MPG. I am not kidding -- I tracked it. I am going to contact dealership to see if something is wrong.
It's a big vehicle for a small price. It is powerful and yet graceful, and the seating is roomy and comfortable -- in all seats.
Improved gas mileage! Also, I wish the power windows had automatic up as well as automatic down.
