2009 Jeep Liberty Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
The first thing I want to comment on is how misleading a lot of the "professional reviews" are for the liberty. I have bought many new vehicles over the years and this is the first new vehicle I haven't had to return to the dealer for some sort of repair or adjustment. The Jeep handles very well on the highway or back roads. I was concerned over the reviews reporting how under powered the Liberty is... this is very mis- leading, the Liberty has plenty of zip, just not the rocket that some cars are these days. Also it gets knocked for fuel mileage alot, This is a true 4X4 not to be confused with a all wheel drive system that is never really in "four wheel drive" 23mpg for true 4wd is great.
4x4 drive system,mygig nav is amazing,infinity sound system is awesome to say the least, heated seats for Michigan winters, tight steering very responsive. sky slider is fun and is not noisy,
the drivers lumbar lever is very difficult to reach almost impossible while driving. Headlights are not the brightest but not as bad as reviews stated. windshield defroster vents don't go all the way to the ends of the glass, may be a problem with defrosting as some forums have said.
