2008 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
Compared to other small Utes, the Liberty Limited has them beat. Little things, such as: Memory Seating, easy exit, remote start. Put this rig above the rest. The V-6 is lack-luster and it doesn't get great mileage in town, but I got 23 MPG on a 2000 mile trip. The seats are very comfortable and even though the foot wells seem crowded, there is plenty of room and I'm a big Norwegian. I had a 4x4 Escape before and thought that was a great car, but the features, such as: 4 wheel disk brakes and real 4x4 put he Escape to shame. The Jeep didn't even cost any more than the Ford. It rides well and runs great. Looks good too!
Remote start and memory seats. It is so nice to click the remote and have the seat and mirrors set. No one else at this price point has that feature. Remote start is great! The system locks the doors and starts. It will turn off after 15 minutes if you do nothing else. A pre-heated or cooled car.
