This is a follow up review (2 years old 30k miles). Overall we still enjoy the Liberty. It is an average small SUV but the american manufacturing is definitely show through. Still under warranty so all window regulators have been replaced at least once, some twice. Seats are very uncomfortable on long road trips (very little lumbar support). MPG is actually pretty decent for a V6 3.7L on road trips, city MPG is horrible (16 city 25 highway). Decent amount of cargo with seats folded down. We have enjoyed it so far but won't buy another. This is our first American car and we have decided to stick with foreign.
Peppy V6, rear windows roll down 100% (unless broken), cargo space, turns on a dime, handling is great, satellite radio, auto locking doors and grocery hooks (my wife lets things roll around like crazy in the back)
Like everyone else, bigger glove box, window controls on appropriate doors, better window regulators from factory, better tires from factory, stain resistant seats, lots of road noise and wind factor. When passing on a roadtrip a gust of wind feels like it will push you off the highway, AC issues
