I have a jeep liberty for over 6 years. Never Get tire of it. Always give me a brand new car feeling every time when I step in. Very very reliable. Especially winter. I have no worry to get to anywhere even in the worse condition. It's a powerful ride. Very quiet, comfy, adventure ride!! Highly recommended!

I absolutely loved this vehicle! I have owned in for 4 years. However, I bought it pre husband, babies and dogs...It fit me perfectly, always reliable, great in winter or off road but is WAY too small for a family! Small backseat is almost impossible for car seats.

I really love my Liberty but wish it was getting better Gas milage. I also have a 1998 Grand Cherokee Laredo that I have owned for the passed 10 years with over 200K miles on it and it gets better gas milage then the Liberty.

They Jeep is the toughest vehicle that I ever owned. My daughter had a accident roll over in one without a scratch. My wife was rear-ended, the other car was heavily damaged, the Jeep had on damage(the spare tire absorbed the impact) It is powerful enough in town, but the mileage is poor. Tough as nails.

GREAT SMALL SUV, STYLING IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS

PROS: EXTERIOR STLYING, RELIABLE, GOOD VISIBILITY, GET UP N GO, 4WD CONS: SEATS THAT GET STAINED EASILY (CAR COVERS REMEDY THAT), MPG COULD BE BETTER SOME REVIEWS HERE STATE THE OBVIOUS, THAT IF YOU PT VEHICLE THROUGH HARD USE OR RIDE THE BRAKES, YOU WILL BE REPLACING THEM SOONER, PRETTY MUCH HOW YOU DRIVE ANY CAR. IT NOW HAS 83,000 MI (BOUGHT USED W/52,000) WHAT WE REPLACED IS THE FRONT BRAKES, SET OF TIRES (W/ALIGNMENT) AND THE POWER STEERING PUMP. NOTHING ELSE HAS BROKEN DOWN. WE HAVE HAD THE CAR FOR 3 YEARS NOW. IT SHOULD LAST US FOR AWHILE, BUT WE MAINTAIN THE VEHICLE AND CHANGE THE OIL EVERY 4K MILES OR SO. I LIKE THE LOOKS OF THE JEEP STYLING CUES: ROUND HEADLIGHTS, BUMPER FLARES, INTERIOR IS RETRO-MOD GREAT YOUNGER PERSON CAR. THE ONLY REAL CON IS THE GAS MPG OF ABOUT 21/17 THAT WE HAVE SEEN OR AROUND 18-19 MPG EVERYDAY USE. I LIKE TO GET ABOUT 22-23 FOR A SMALLER SUV TYPE, BUT IT IS RELIABLE.

I wouldn't look at the regular Liberty, or even the sport model. I loved the design and ruggedness of the Renegade. I have tested it's capabilities off-road and was very impressed! My only upgrade was to run BFG AT/TA tires, which dramatically increased the of-road performance. The Goodyear's that come standard were terrible even on-road. I recommend this Jeep to any Jeep-Head!

Drove this rig for 10 years and 150,000 miles through every terrain one can imagine. Handles well in snow, mud, rain, sand, rocks, etc. yet handles comfortably at 85+mph on the freeway. Interior materials hold up very well and very low maintenance / repairs. Only downside is small interior and poor fuel economy (15-16 mpg)

The visibility is outstanding. A great SUV in town and on the road. I had over 100,000 miles on a Wrangler before this 05 Liberty. I still have an 03 Liberty. Besides needing a storage platform over the two vents, and a little more power, I don't see a wiser way for miles per dollar. The resale factor is a bonus feature.
