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


We recently sold our 2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 4x4 but only because we wanted to purchase a hybrid before gas prices rise again. We still miss it, especially when we see another one in town! The only mechanical work required besides regular maintenance and new tires occurred at the end of a vacation. It lost all power and wouldn't remain running, the locks were possessed, power steering gone, no radio, etc. It turns out it only needed a new battery! The only area that could use improvement is in highway handling (keeping it on the road). My husband had more difficulty with this than I did but sometimes it was exhausting to drive at 65 mph and above, especially if there was a crosswind.

Best Features

Love the body style (much more than the new Liberty) & the 4WD is awesome! We drove in ice/snow in every state from Oklahoma to New Hampshire & back without any difficulty. Easy to manuever & great turning radius. Plenty of power & acceleration. Air cold, heater warmed up quickly.

Worst Features

Highway handling; rear hatch/door is hinged on left & would be more cargo friendly if window & door opened separate (window, up & door down)
