2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
Overall I love my Liberty. For the money you can not find a better small SUV. The only negatives I have found: small-ish gas tank (roughly 300 miles to a tank); plastic trim pieces scratch easily (but are not too noticeable); sitting position takes getting used to in front seats (wide transmission tunnel, I heard that this actually better after the redesign). The exterior looks are aggressive and the 3.7 L engine has plenty of PEP. It did fine hauling 2 moto's on a trailer also. The basic options are better than the competitor's and the safety features are tops too. No small SUV holds value like a Jeep (and I am a Ford man!)
Exterior styling. Throaty engine.
Better trim pieces, bigger gas tank (see above). As always, better gas mileage.
