Good, But Not Great

2008 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
Our 2008 Liberty Limited is our second Liberty. We traded in a 2003 Liberty Sport that we drove for 5 years and 50,000 miles without a single problem. We wanted a fully loaded Liberty and the end of year rebates plus lifetime powertrain warranty were too tempting to resist. The 2008 feels a little more "grownup" than our '03 and although it has the same engine does not feel as quick. The mileage, never particularly good on our '03, is even worse on the '08. It has been to the shop for minor things such as a 4WD warning light that wouldn't go off, a defective bow that caused a wind leak on the Skyslider top, and a hood prop rod that came off in my hand.
Skyslider roof is great on sunny days. MyGig entertainment system with navigation gives the driver a lot of listening alternatives. Winter traction with SelecTrac 2 is second to none.
Fuel mileage could stand some improvement. Quality control is not as good as on my '03 Liberty although I've only had minor problems so far.
