2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
Having had the 2004 Liberty and hating it since 2 days after delivery, I was a bit skeptical about the 2008 model. However, a test drive changed my mind. I was quite surprised at the additional room as the specs don't really convey real world use. Who thinks in cubic feet? My 6'3" partner is comfortable in the driver and passenger seats. The ride is definitely improved and the styling is great. The vehicle feels a lot more solid. My only regret is not getting the Limited model as I really miss the electronic seats and the EVIC. Also, ignore professional reviewers who insist on comparing it to crossovers. That's not the same category!
The ride and size.
Better gas mileage, dampened/rubberized storage to reduce rattling noise of items inside
