Great Overall - Mileage Could Improve
By pcmr57 on


2004 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Purchased in September 2008 with 50000 miles(80000 km). Towing is rated for 5000lb which is impressive for it's class. I pulled about 3000 lbs with no issues with no trailer brakes. The 60/40 Full Time 4x4 mode is truly excellent in deep snow. It has good traction with Rear Drive Mode with snow tires as well. I've only put 12000 miles on it and the only things gone wrong are air bag control module and broken fan belt. Got a module on Ebay for $75.00. One recent tank I averaged 14 mpg(US) (17 imp) with mostly hwy miles. Best hwy mileage ever was 17 mpg(US) (21 imp) hwy on a full tank highway drive. Worst mileage was 10 mpg(US) (12imp) with all city driving in winter months.

Best Features

Nice style. Tough engine and transmission. I read online comments from owners with 180000 miles and no problems. GREAT sound system! Very small turning radius for parking in tight spots. If you want a compact SUV that can tow a lot this is your rig. Good crash rating.

Worst Features

Mileage could be better. Not very fast for highway passing but acceptable. Pathetic glove box. Aluminum wheel coating chips easily if you live in ares where road salt is used in winter. Gas mileage single biggest draw back. Not the best rollover rating.
