2008 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Got the 08 Limited Edition Liberty at fire sale prices in October. What a fun, fun car. We live in the Northeast and the car handled all the snowy weather beautifully. But the sunny days allowed that Sky Slider Roof to really brighten your day. The car came with Sirius radio free for 1 year (cool!), leather heated seat and factory installed remote start (again, think harsh PA winters). All the chrome makes the Liberty look cool and the two kids still in car seats still have a good amount of room.


Best Features

Sky Slider Roof, heated leather seats, remote start, great handling (much tighter turning than you would expect), cool looking


Worst Features

Resale value of Jeeps seems to have plummeted with all of Chrysler's issues. Oh well, I plan on keeping this baby a long time!

2008 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My wife and I are very pleased with this Liberty Limited. It has all the options including sun roof. The MyGig Infotainment w/Nav and the Sirius system make this fun to drive. Evic lets you check tire pressures to keep them equal, which is important with an SUV. The chrome on the exterior makes the Black look sharp. It's not to big and handles and rides beautifully. We are very glad to own it. It will be one year old next month. A vehicle without MyGig Gps, siruis etc. and Evic sure would be dull.


Best Features

Clean Jeep style. Chrome. Heated power leather seats with lumbar support for the driver. Evic display to check things. Towing capacity for boat. MyGig means you load your CD's on the Hard Drive and leave them all at home. GPS will take you where you wish to go, find hotels, restaurants, police etc..


Worst Features

Better gas milage.

2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I grew up with a Cherokee and wanted another Jeep for myself. We still have the Cherokee with almost 130,000 miles. This 08 Liberty is my first truck - a great 4WD, go anywhere vehicle. Already have over 3000 on it. Was great in the snow this past winter - looking forward to taking it out west this summer.


Best Features

4x4 go anywhere capabilities and surprising comfort for a vehicle like this one - love the seats. Just fun to drive around.


Worst Features

Keep it up Jeep!

2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had the Liberty for 1200 miles and so far really like it. We've had 3 major snowstorms in Maine recently and the Jeep performed as though there was no snow on the roads. It's comfortable, handles nicely and forward visibility is great. I like that Jeep has removed the spare tire from the rear door which opens vertically with a pop up window. There's plenty of space for storage when you fold down the rear seats and with my model the right front seat also folds flat for longer items. All in all it's a great vehicle especially with all the incentives and financing available.


Best Features

4 wheel drive seat height for visibility storage rear door improvement


Worst Features

better mileage though not too bad

2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

We needed a rugged vehicle to negotiate the gravel road and creek crossing into our place in the Ouachita Mountains. Also needed it to pull our 3500# 17' Casita travel trailer. With its 5000# tow rating, this Jeep Liberty Sport more than fills the bill on all counts. My wife, the primary driver of this vehicle, selected the Liberty Sport. She did well! Fuel mileage can't be compared to a RAV-4, but the Jeep will do things the Rav-4 wouldn't dream of. But,we got 22 MPG on the first tank of mixed city/highway and that ain't bad for a 3.7 L V-6 engine with automatic tranny. After 5 weeks and 2310 miles, we couldn't be happier with this car. It's our first Jeep product.


Best Features

1. Seat comfort. 2. Sliding glass sunroof. 3. Power!!! 4. Interior quality. 5. Fit/finish of entire vehicle. 6. Good ground clearance, entry/departure angles. 7. Space when seats are folded. 8. Hatchback design. 9. Spare tire placement. 10. Reasonable fuel economy.


Worst Features

Redesign the cruise control location. Though quirky, it works well "as is" when one becomes accustomed to it. Not a real "biggie."
