Electronic Problems & Gas Hog
By Toby on


2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr 2WD SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Doing it over again, I wouldn't buy a Liberty. It is a gas hog; I get about 15 miles per gallon. Plus, I experience chronic electronic problems. For instance, I pulled over for a failed left turn and brake lamp. I got home, and the light worked fine. The dome light goes on and off, and the turn signal occasionally turns on and won't go off without stopping and restarting the engine. There is also a slip in the transmission. When I brake, it down-shifts violently. I take it in, they hook it to a computer, and it works fine for a few months. Then, it gradually comes on again.

Best Features

Look of the vehicle.

Worst Features

Fix the fuel efficiency. Never mind, I won't buy another US built car again.
