2011 Jeep Liberty Reviews

Vehicle Overview

The Jeep Liberty, which is related to the Dodge Nitro, comes in Sport, Renegade and Limited editions. One of the more interesting features in the five-seat Jeep Liberty small SUV is its optional Sky Slider movable canvas roof. Liberty competitors include the Nissan Xterra and Suzuki Grand Vitara.

New for 2011

For 2011, besides the new Renegade trim level, there are no significant changes for 2011.


Exterior

The Liberty features Jeep's traditional seven-slot grille and trapezoidal fender flares that enhance the vehicle's side profile. Unlike many panoramic sunroofs offered today, Jeep's Sky Slider roof is made of canvas rather than glass. The fabric roof folds on itself as it opens, and Jeep says the top is leak-proof. Exterior features include:

  • Standard automatic headlamps
  • Standard body-colored grille, front and rear bumpers, and moldings
  • Standard remote keyless entry
  • Optional express-up windows
  • Standard power-operated and heated side mirrors that can fold
  • 16-, 17- or 18-inch wheels
  • Optional roof rails
  • Optional full-open canvas roof system
  • Optional chrome grille

 

Interior

The Liberty's interior features a large floor console with cupholders, armrest and a storage area with a removable top tray.

Both the left and right rear panels in the cargo area have tie-down loops for securing items to the load floor. The left rear panel houses a concealed compartment for jack storage and tools. Interior features include:

  • Standard power locks, windows and mirrors
  • Standard floormats
  • Stain-resistant cloth or leather upholstery available
  • Optional heated, powered front seats
  • Optional leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls
  • Optional hands-free communication system
  • Optional navigation system

 

Under the Hood

The Liberty has a standard fuel shut-off system that turns off fuel when the vehicle is decelerating. There's also a standard fuel-saving indicator that lights up in the odometer to notify the driver when the vehicle is being driven in a fuel-efficient manner.

All models come with a four-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the Liberty can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Mechanical features include:

  • 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 with 235 pounds-feet of torque
  • Four-speed automatic transmission
  • Trailer tow package that includes a full-size spare, Class III trailer hitch and trailer-sway control
  • Rear- or four-wheel drive

 

Safety

Safety features include:

  • Standard side curtain airbags
  • Standard all-disc antilock braking system
  • Standard electronic stability control with electronic roll mitigation and all-speed traction control
  • Standard smart key that immobilizes the engine in a theft attempt
  • Optional parking assist system includes a sonar-based warning system with audible and visual alerts

Excellent choice

by Jack! from Newbury, OH on November 30, 2017

Everything I looked for in a used vehicle. Solid body, great features, very little in the way of flaws for a 6-year old car.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
