2009 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
After having one of the first Jeep Liberty's when they came out in '01, we decided to trade it in on a new '09 Liberty. My wife racked up just shy of 100k trouble-free miles on the first one. After considering other vehicles like the Honda CRV and Subaru Forester, I liked the Liberty the best. The new one has quite a few refinements and improvements over the old one. The vehicle has more interior room, rides better, and is quieter also. Still has the rugged 4WD drive that Jeep is noted for. It may not get the gas mileage of the CRV or Subaru, or doesn't quite have the 'car-like ride', but I didn't buy it to be a car. It's a REAL 4WD, not a cutesy wanna be. It will go through about anything.
