2007 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I bought a 3 year old 2007 Jeep Liberty Sport with 40k miles and used it for 5 years. It was reliable, spacious and comfortable even for 5 adults. It was fuel efficient for a jeep considering it gave 21 miles per gallon on highways and 18 miles per gallon in city. I had to replace brakes and tires with the miles i was putting on the vehicle. Other than that, not many issues before i totaled it in an accident with 130k miles.
2007 Jeep Liberty Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
We bought this Liberty new with 30 miles on it. It just rolled 206000. I hope to get to a million. It has been the daily driver for one or the other of us for the last 11 years. It is also the road trip vehicle. Oil changes on time, all fluid changes on schedule. Only major mechanical issue was the AC compressor went out a couple years ago. Only major cosmetic issue was front driver's leather seat split open. It has run 87 octane straight gas as much as possible, no corn juice if it can be avoided. I try to run premium if a I towing. I have used this vehicle to dolly each of my kids cars multiple times. One time was about 350 miles. The only other goofy thing is a phantom electrical issue, once in a while a 15A fuse blows and takes out the radio, key fob remotes and a couple other things. It has happened 3 times over the first 11 years. I wish Jeep still made these.
PROS: looks, handling, clearance, cornering, space for storage, very low maintanence, good interior design, heater works very quickly on cold days....... CONS: terrible gas mileage (14/18), weak acceleration when climbing, massive problems with plastic brackets used to raise and lower windows (they break easily and often).... for me, overall, i like this car a lot, but the bad gas mileage really bothers me. using premium gas (91+ octane) really helps with power and gas mileage, but it is painful to pay ~$15 or more for every tank of gas....
i bought this car for my son it seemed to be perfect but once i got it off the dealer it started going down hill quickly. first it was the gas cap ok no problem than not more than a month the water pump went out now wait for this....... brakes, battery, window repairs, re wiring the whole car, brake lights new tires and having to replace engine that only had 137,000 on it! replace the engine and two weeks later we find out the car came out of the factory bad!!! this new engine is already giving us problems!! stalls and dies and it takes two to three times to get it started again!! this is unacceptable!!! so for the love of god do not purchase a 2007 jeep liberty sport!! now i have to pay 150.00 a month for an extended warranty so my son is safe!!!!!!!!!!!!!
