I have had my 2003 Jeep Liberty back to the dealer four times for a failed sensor that is connected to the speedometer. Apparently this sensor is mounted on the rear axles (which had to be replaced but under the warranty). Don't know if anyone else has had this problem but it started in August 2006, again in June 2007, April 2008 and now I will be returning it this week to the dealer to have the sensor replaced again. I think it's time to replace the whole speedometer, but I was told that there might be something on the flywheel. Not an expert on mechanical problems myself but I try to keep educated. This is also a low mileage vehicle as with today's gas prices I am limiting my driving as I only get about 14 mpg around town. Ugh!

Love my Jeep Renegade. Can't believe it's almost 7yrs old. Haven't had much problems with it. The 4-wheel and split time drive is great. I have two small kids, so it's nice that it is bigger but not too big where I can't reach my hand behind me and not be able to reach them, like our Surburban. However, the cup holders in the back are not accessible to kids in booster seats. So the lack of cup holders is a downside, hence my 4 stars on interior design and features. I have the 6-CD changer which I love. I think I might need to get my shocks looked at though...the Jeeps rides a little rougher than I remember in the past. Sometimes I feel like a bobble head on the interstate.

I bought my Jeep Liberty 4 years ago, and haven't had a single problem! It handles great in the snow, as well as off-road and on hills. My husband uses it like he would a truck for hauling and heavier work. The gas mileage is pretty good for an SUV, too. The only problem is that there isn't really a whole lot of passenger room in the backseat.

I love the Liberty!! When I seen the Sport, and from what I heard, it was a base model, but the one i got was very well equipped. I got the four cylinder model... most people think 150hp for a truck this size doesn't perform well, but it provides plenty of pep. Not to mention 27 MPG!!

best car I have owned to date

I bought my Jeep new and now have 231,000 miles. I have changed my oil every 3k and don't abuse the truck when I drive. At 210k I probably would have bought a new car but I have a friend who is a mechanic and he has been keeping the car going as the last 20k things have been needing replacing but as I only pay for the parts it makes sense to pay to keep the car. Of all the cars I have owned I have got more mileage out of this car with the least amount spent on maintenance. The 2nd generation models 2008-2012 take a lot of abuse on the various auto websites but the 2003 has been a winner for me.

BEST GUZ EVER!!!! RIP BABYGUZ!!!!

I loved this truck from the moment we met. He was my 3rd JEEP! It was a demo so he had all of the bells and whistles. Leather heated-power seats, sun roof. The most beautiful chrome wheels. There were 5. They even put one on the spare. Handled like a dream. A really tight turning radius which came in handy often. He was a 2003 but I got him in 2004. He was comfortable and so fun to drive. Absolutely adorable. He got his name due to the fact the I felt like he drank a lot of gas thus the name GUZZLER, but he had the most adorable baby face so I shortened it to BABYGUZ. I came to realize that gas use is all relative and is affected by the way that you drive so I just adjusted and it really was not a factor after a while. I got him in January 2004 and he finally gave out June 27, 2014 at 203,000+ miles. I have been patching him up over the past 2 years and now the transmission was starting to go. I cried!!!! I will say he performed great!!! If they still made the Liberty I would have gotten another one without hesitation!!!!! Me and GUZ were together 10 years and I loved him the same for all 10 of those years! He never left me stranded!!! I miss GUZ but I must move on. Now I have the 2014 Cherokee 4x4!! This is my 4th JEEP! It is very new so I am trying to adjust. So far so good!!! It is truly a JEEP THING!!!!! JEEPS ROCK!!!
