2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
It appears that the Liberty is under rated by most review sites and is a very good vehicle if it meets your needs. I drive dirt roads almost daily and not all vehicles can take that pounding. The car is functional, rides comfortable and can handle the back roads. Made sure to get the all terrain tires (all of the vehicles at dealerships were 4x4 but only a few dealerships had the all terrain tires) and the Jeep green color is nice as well. Ample storage space inside and fun to drive as well. Although gas mileage is below average the vehicles are selling well below the competition and that more than makes up the difference. Only down side appears to be a little too much wind noise.
Off road ability but perfect for regular driving as well. Jeep green color. All terrain tire option with full size spare.
Reduce wind noise and improve gas mileage. Put spare tire back on the back door to increase storage space in the back. Many components on the underbody are coated for rust protection but some are not. Had to require dealership to replace front struts before buying due to rust. Coated myself.
