2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I bought my 2008 Jeep Liberty Sport brand new. As my first big purchase as an adult all on my own, I could not have been more excited about this vehicle. However, in the 4 years I have owned it, I have realized that this was the worst mistake of my life. At first, it was
the four wheel drive that took a crap, and having never had a chance to use the four wheel drive yet, i was surprised. Then came the Sky Slider leak, and the interior light leak, followed by all four tires dry rotting out causing me to blow a tire while driving. Yet the tires still had at minimum 40% tread left. Then heater core died followed by the blower motor, then we had to replace a computer chip that was causing my
transmission to lock up and not shift while driving. Then came the brake issues and now it's the radiator. I don't know what else I will have left to replace/fix on this car. It's has all been out of pocket costs, minus the chip. I keep up to date on maintenance and don't quite understand what's wrong with this vehicle. I'm assuming I have really bad luck and got a lemon. But, I'm afraid to drive this car anymore because I don't know what else will break. Has anyone else been through this?
