2009 Jeep Liberty Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


People say they used to drive a crossover and don't like the Liberty ride. The first thing to know is that the Liberty is a real Jeep. It will not ride like a car based crossover. That said, it actually does pretty darn good on regular roads.

Our Liberty has 90k miles and the drive train has been solid. No squeaks or rattles. Overall our Jeep has been reliable. We've owned Hondas and other brands so being objective here. Items that will likely be a problem sooner or later on the Liberty include automatic climate controller, trans cooler, and totally integrated power module (when this goes bad the car seems haunted). Wife loves driving the Liberty year round. We would buy another one.

Best Features

Looks like a Jeep should, very useful on or off road, decent towing capability (5000 lbs), and I like that the engine sounds just like the old Slant 6..an engine that almost could not be killed. Our Limited is pretty quiet inside especially for an SUV.

Worst Features

Like every other interior since almost the day Daimler bought Chrysler, the interior materials are cheap plastic in a lot of areas. Fiat is fixing that problem but unfortunately making Jeeps a lot less, well, Jeep-like.
