2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I have owned the Liberty for about a month and love it! It is tight in its handling, rides smoothly, is quiet and is an absolute beast in the snow. I got an '08 with $9K off in incentives, total cost 15k and the dealer gave me a $1,000 over book on my '02 Jetta trade. Easily beats a more expensive Toyota or Nissan that would cost $5-6k more. And for what? The build quality and performance are certainly on par with a 4-runner or Pathfinder. So for the total cost of ownership (purchase, insurance and gas cost) this cannot be beaten. Good job Jeep!
Ride and build quality
Keep lowering the gas mileage. What about a turbo-charged 4 cyl.?
