Review

Hello All,
This is one of many new cars I have
bought and it is the worst one
mechanically. The engine makes
rattling noises, the front seats have
been stained by water, the rear right
brake drags, the clutch / drivetrain
makes a bad clunking noise, it idles
rough, and a myriad of other smaller
problems. Some of the problems are
intermittent which makes it even more
difficult to get fixed. I would not
recommend this car to anyone. Save
yourself problems and buy something
else. I hope I can invoke the
NY "lemon law" and get rid of this car.


Best Features

The body style is nice and the fit and finish of the interior is good (other than the easily stained seats).


Worst Features

Replace the entire drivetrain with something that is engineered properly.

Review

I always loved Jeeps so when I needed a
new vehicle I decided to stay with the
good old American Jeep.What a mistake.
First I have had nothing but issues
with my electrical wiring used for my
towing hitch which started at around
15,000 miles and first use.When I
brought my Liberty back to have this
repaired, I had to fight with the
dealer to have it fixed (lets just say
I spoke with every manager in the
dealership and actually had to contact
Jeep headquarters directly)- headache
#1 still not solved, still not working.
Now I am having transmission problems
at 34,000 miles.It feels as though my
transmission is stuck in third or
fourth gear.


Worst Features

Start making qualty vehicles with major improvements in the area of customer service.

Review

I really love my Jeep and so does my 3
year old son, her name is Libby. We
have driven a lot of highway miles and
even though the gas mileage is only
about 17 mpg, it's a fun trip and we
don't want to get out.


Best Features

I love everything.


Worst Features

Sport edition needs a ceiling light in the middle; too much wind noise; not enough leg room for back seat riders; seats stain too easily

2003 Jeep Liberty SUV Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I haven't even had my 2003 Jeep Liberty
for a year and I've had it back to the
dealer multiple times because of issues
with the transmission. It's hard
shifting when it slow to a certain
speed. No one seems to be able to
figure it out.

Review

Comfort-Seats are to high,cuts off
circulation at my knees.
Fuel Ecomony-Gets 11-14 On Highway 0n
Cruise, 1% of my traveling is city, so
I would hate to for the reality check
on that issue.Approx -250-300 A MONTH
IN FUEL COST...(IN ALL REALITY, THATS
ANOTHER CAR PAYMENT)
Interior Design-No lights in the
middle, only the front,or way in the
back.I HAVE TO USE A FLASHLIGHT.
Exterior Design-The fender steel bolts,
Discolor very quickly, and the orange
runs down the side of the truck.
Build Quality-Nothing more from what
you pay for!
Reliability-Every time I move from
2Wheel to 4Wheel, the truck goes in
neutral, and stops and burns rubber, IF
NOT PAYNG ATTENTION.


Best Features

THE CONSOLE, TELLS THE TEMP OUTSIDE, AMD THE EXACT FUEL MILEAGE.


Worst Features

Lighting, Fuel Ecomony. ON THE STICKER PLEASE STATE THE REAL FUEL MILEAGE.
