I was heartbroken to say goodbye to my 2004 Jeep Liberty yesterday, but it is a miracle that I was able to. After rolling off a loose gravel road, we flipped a couple of times and landed upside down with the driver's side window smashed in and the windshield cracked but holding together. Even hanging upside down and with a busted hand, I was abe to unbuckle, remove the headrest, and crawl out with nothing more than aches, pains, surface lacerations, and the need for a few stitches in my right hand. I put over 4000 miles on this car in the last 6 weeks alone, and it was a solid companion the whole way. It could have been slightly more comfortable - the lumbar support in my Sport model was not adjustable - but considering I was hauling at least one bicycle and a passenger or two for most of those miles, I am beyond impressed. I miss my car already, and while there is a part of me traumatized enough to never want to get into an SUV again, I have a feeling that my next car will be a Jeep Liberty.

I have owned two Jeep Libertys. I loved them both. In them I had the comfort of a car, but the fun-loving drive of a real Jeep. This is the perfect car for a girl who needs a tough-driving four-wheel drive without the rough ride of a real Jeep. Whoops, they are real Jeeps!

Great used Jeep Liberty

I helped my daughter out by buying her 180000 mile Jeep she got as part of the divorce settlement and it sat for 18 months with an overheat problem. I replaced the bad water pump, serpentine belt and tensioner and electric cooling fan FUSE. It was overheated twice. Hoped in it and drove 3 hours home. Replaced the spark plugs that had all those miles on them if that what you could call them, never saw any with a center electrode left on them. Bought four new tires, new front wheel bearings and have put 10, 000 more miles on it. I love this thing, could use better gas mileage but love that 4 WD. Yeah rides smooth on a smooth road but rides like a Jeep on a bumpy road. Love the interior. My son just bought one, but hates the Jeep rough ride. His is a top of the line 2004 fancy heated leather seats, power seats etc. I'm going to buy it off him and sell the other. Oh and this engine doesn't BURN any oil despite being overheated several times by my daughter. Love it.

first time buying a jeep and the interior is what caught my eye. its elegant and luxurious without the high cost of luxury... the ride was smooth and i could barely feel any bumps in the road which i loved. the overhead buttons are very customizable and easy to navigate and i would very much so suggest this brand to anyone looking for a SUV without the bigness of a SUV

This vehicle served me well for 7 years in western Canada, land of ice and snow. City, country, and highway. Poor traction in 2 wheel drive if you don't have snow tires. Rides like a Jeep (ie. watch your kidneys). Bad gas mileage - I got in the single digits at times with city driving in the winter, but people who buy SUV's shouldn't really complain about gas mileage! My Jeep developed an undiagnosable vibration in the right front wheel at 4 years old that was intermittent, and never was repaired satisfactorily. All that said, my Jeep never broke down once, transported my german shepherd and myself all over North America, and made winter driving a breeze!

I brought my 2004 Jeep Liberty and new, have just under 80,000 miles on it. I fell in love w/the Liberty at my first test drive and knew I had to have one. I have had no real major problems, but it is getting "old" and things are starting to wear out, still better looking than any other car out there. Love the 4 wheel drive when it snows (still dont drive a lot if its sleet/freezing rain, but when I had to, I was not as scared as before). I plan on having this Jeep until they tell me that there is nothing they can do to fix it !!!!! I wish that they had not stop making them, I still think they are the best looking jeeps !

I bought a 2004 Jeep Liberty 4wd sport about two months ago. Within a week, the transmission come out of it with only 43,000 miles. I thought I had really messed up. I had the 7 year/70,000 mile warranty and my local Jeep dealership put a new transmission in it and it only cost me the 100 dollar deductible. Since then, I have fell in love with this vehicle. I am 20 years old and since I got my license at 16, I have had 15 different vehicles including 4wd trucks, cars, and other 4wd SUVs. This Jeep performs better than all of the vehicles I have had. The only thing I would change is for it to have a little bit better take off. I baby my vehicles and I hate running it up to anything over 2500 rpms to shift but to take off and keep up with traffic at times, you atleast have to run it up to 3000rpms. And yes, mine is an automatic. I would reccommend this vehicle to anyone who wants to feel like they are driving a 4wd. I get between 18 and 19mpg and thats all you can get out of it. Trust me, I baby this thing and I think the only way you could get better is if you drove long trips in excess of 100 miles at a time without stopping. My job is 25 miles from home, no redlights at 55mph and thats just simply all you can get out of it. This is an excellent vehicle and is perfect for getting to the deer stand in the middle of the woods and going out with my family camping on the weekends.

I purchased my 2004 Jeep Liberty for my birthday in 2006. This was my first Jeep, so I was a little nervous about how it would perform. I have been pleasantly surprised. I love it. Have over 118k on it and 9 years later, still in love with it. I had minor issues with it and a couple of recalls, like any other vehicle, but nothing major. Just keep the service up on it and it will be fine. Will definitely purchase another one

Not The Most Reliable Car I've Owned

by from Southeast USA on April 21, 2009

At 40K, my Liberty had two burned valves, the remaining ten were pitted and had to be ground. One cylander head had to be replaced.Repairs were over $2,500. Most of this cost was covered by warrenty. ...
At 40K, my Liberty had two burned valves, the remaining ten were pitted and had to be ground. One cylander head had to be replaced.Repairs were over $2,500. Most of this cost was covered by warrenty. Cost to me was $400. I purchased this Jeep when it had 19k miles and have taken very good care of it. No abusive treatment. This kind of damage should not have occrred at only 40k miles. I would not recommend this vehicle.
