What are the "professionals" talking about

I looked at all the SUV's under 30K in her class and I settled on a beautiful 2012 Jet Edition. I never thought I'd ever own an america car. In fact; I spent a considerable amount of time looking for an excuse not to buy this truck and found none. With the exception of the Xterra, which felt and looked cheap, this was the only other truck in the class that I felt comfortable taking off-road or towing a boat. Admittedly, the mileage is not great (avg 23mpg combined) and the ride is more truck than car- not as bad as the pro reviews suggest -but its a SUV, not a Crossover- aka station wagon with a lift kit. If your looking for a true 4x4 SUV that's well built and will claw its way over anything the under carriage can clear then you need a Liberty

Nice!

Sick to death of all the reviews I looked at before I finally bought one. I have had it for 3 months now and like it more than when I bought it. I'm 6'2" and have no complaints. Love the sound system. 28g hard drive for my music is very impressive. But the bottom line is I just love this truck!

the best SUV

by from Jonesville, VA on December 7, 2011

Jeep should not quit making the Jeep Liberty. I think that this will be a huge mistake. The jeep liberty has been around for almost 10 years now. I think that it is one of the most affordable 4 wheel drive SUVs around. Most SUVs are becoming to be all wheel drive. All wheel drive vehicles are no good when you live in the mountains and need a 4 wheel drive to get out of the driveway.

I have had a 2005 liberty, and I have a 2012 liberty a 2013 patriot, and a 2014 wrangler. I love them all, But my wife, and I both seem to fight over taking the 2012 liberty. Its large, and in charge. I call it my black rhino. Has great get up and go. The one with no power is the patriot. Nice styling Gas is about the same as the wrangler. Wish Jeep would bring them back, and keep them as they are. Not make them look like a Rav 4 like so many of the new SUV's out there. If you want a Jeep the liberty fits the bill.

We purchased a new 2012 Liberty Latitude and it is the best vehicle we have owned. It does everything we need it to do. The V6 engine is "old style" but very strong and made much the same as the 4.7 V8. The gas mileage is not the best, but this is a heavy SUV and built strong. We had snow and it handles it very well. We are very pleased with our purchase. Our dog loves the back area when the seats are folded. I am sorry they will no longer be made, but that should improve the resale value.

I can't belive they beat this vehicle up like they do. It is a Jeep 4X4 and that is what I wanted. I just puchased it and drove from Kentucky to Florida the next day. This thing was comfortable the whole 10 hour trip. I love the way it drives and it is very quiet. I had looked at a lot of SUV's and purchased the Liberty with the Latitude Package. You cannot find anything out there with all the options for the money. It has heated leather seats, bluetooth, heated mirrors, Sat. Radio, Garage door opener and 4Wheel drive with down hill assist and a lot more for around 24K. Just try to beat that Expert's. If you are looking for a new 4X4 and don't want to spend 40 thousand, don't listen to the Expert reviews and go drive one

This is the first jeep I ever owned and I love it. I really like how they changed the style after 2007. I bought the deep cherry red. The seating is very confortable and everything is so accessible. No regrets here. The only negative I can come up with is the backseat only seats 2 comfortably, the 3rd in the middle has to deal with the cupholders, but how often do I have 5 in a car?

I have a 2007 Liberty sport. It has a manual transmission. I have owned it since 2007 and now it's 2014. I drove it on many long trips. South Carolina to Upper Michigan. South Carolina to NY . Many other places. It is a very reliable vehicle. I have gotten 25 mpg on the highway when I use cruise control and keep it to 70 mph. Now I have 112000 miles on it and it's still going strong. I have a friend with a Jeep wrangler that got almost 300000 miles out of it. He says he will get another one when his current one goes bad. If you are shopping for a used Liberty, they are a good value. They hold up for alot of years. Have great cargo space. Are very comfortable on long trips. If you just want a fuel miser commuter car, don't buy one. There are many vehicles now that get over 40 mpg that you will like better. Know what you are using the vehicle for and buy something appropriate. Gas misers are great but limited in cargo space. You have to buy the right vehicle for your needs. Liberty's are a great value for a used car. They don't hold their resale value so you can get a great vehicle at a good price. If you hate debt and want a reliable vehicle , buy a Liberty

Nice solid 4 wheel vehicle

by from LI, NY on August 23, 2012

I enjoy driving it. It rides very nice on the 18" tires. A very nice truck for the money, also Jeep dealer gave us a good deal.
