2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr 4WD SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


We bought this new in 2002. In six years, the only two items that have failed are the A/C compressor ($1100) and a battery. Not bad considering we do quite a bit of off-roading, and tow a 1000 pound pop-up camper. The Liberty is easy to drive, easy to park, looks good, and is great off- road. The mileage is only about 18 around town, but if you want 3 more miles per gallon you should consider one of those cute little "SUVs" that are built on a Toyota Corolla chassis. I've seen those get stuck in a gravel driveway. The Liberty is the real thing off road, but does just as well in a Wal-mart parking lot (more dangerous than the Kalahari, by far).

Best Features

Small footprint. Unique look. Off road package. Towing package (5000 pounds, 3000 more than Toyota Land Cruiser).

Worst Features

Rear seats don't fold down completely flat. Goodyear tires are stock.
