2008 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
I traded in my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 with regret, but with 160K miles! I wanted a smaller SUV but with big SUV features. The Liberty has it all. I live at high altitude with big hills. My biggest concern was performance. The Liberty never loses a beat on the climb. Toys and features were the next concern and Liberty met that challenge, too. The combined nav system, sound system, satellite radio, bluetooth, 20 GB memory for capturing CDs (no more books of CDs to carry around!), customized photo display, etc., etc. makes the road experience nothing but a big smile. Interior room with my third concern. Plenty of storage--both for passengers and everything they carry.
The styling, nav/bluetooth/satellite system ease of use (totally intuitive), the sound system is terrific, the feel of the drive.
Seats are a little stiff. I would like more comfortable seats. And, as always, better gas mileage.
