2005 Jeep Liberty SUV Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Purchased new in early Jan. 30k miles later Jeep went to dealership only once for mud blockage in condenser (not under warranty). Air vents do not close, window switches located on middle console. Other than that, it's of great quality. No problems at all, except there could be improvements on minor details.


Best Features

4x4, stock sound system, fun to drive in city driving and off road.


Worst Features

Interior details, placement switches for windows front and back, relocate spare, front seats, rear seats needs more space, replace carpet throughout vehicle with other material which is water/salt/mud proof; perhaps a elastomer product, road noise is a bit loud on highways, more cargo room.

Review

The outstanding engineering behind the new CRD engine qualifies as such a joy. And I am here to tell you that this engine blows away (no pun intended) all the myths and conventional thinking that we have come to associate with diesel engines over the years. With no visible smoke, no apparent diesel smell and a whisper quiet engine sound at highway speeds, this vehicle actually out-ran many gas engine vehicles in the mountains of California, Oregon and Washington on a recent trip. At one gas station, a trucker even walked up to my son and unwittingly said: “Excuse me son, but do you know that you’re putting diesel fuel into that Jeep?” No one seems to know about next gen diesel technology.


Best Features

Engine, 5-speed auto, handling, city parking ability, tractability in the mountains, cat-quick off the line, whisper quiet speed, excellent fuel mileage, no smoke, no smell, no kidding.


Worst Features

Brakes. I am on second set of rears.

Review

This is my first Jeep & I love it! Got the Limited, V6 with the leather, sunroof, heated seats & mirrors, 6 CD changer with Infinity speakers. The power is adequate for its class and has a lot of "get up and go!" I wish it was better at the pump ... only about 15-6 MPG. I'm 6'1"/240# and I have plenty of leg room in the front; the back is a bit tight for me. It's fun to drive and handles very well. Recently took it on a long road trip, and it's very comfortable and a smooth ride (It does get some wind noise). I was going to purchase foreign, but with the rebates and all that I got with this, I went with American.


Best Features

All the "Extras." Leather, heated seats & mirrors, CD changer, side airbags, chrome front grill, the WICKED Red Inferno pearl coat paint (I get so MANY compliments!). The bigger wheels.


Worst Features

Really needs more little compartments, to put "things." Sunglass holder would be nice! Better gas mileage would be great. The glovebox could be bigger.
