the best SUV

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.

Purchased my 2012 Jeep Liberty in October of 2015 with 65,000 miles in superb condition. Only drive about 5,000 miles a year. This Jeep other than gas mileage has been fantastic. No problems whatsoever. Reliable to the bone. Not comfortable for long trips but of course I do not drive it much. Snow and ice?? Just flip the switch on for 4x4 and it will not stop. Absolutely love my Jeep Liberty. Worth it.

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

Love My Jeep

by from Michigan on June 29, 2016

This is my second Liberty and I love it as much as I did my first. My first was a 2003 that I bought in 2007. I put 100k miles on it and just traded it for the 2012 that I have now. I did look at othe...
This is my second Liberty and I love it as much as I did my first. My first was a 2003 that I bought in 2007. I put 100k miles on it and just traded it for the 2012 that I have now. I did look at other SUVs but kept coming back to the Liberty. Since 2012 is the last year they were made, I looked for a Certified Pre-Owned with low mileage, and found what I wanted. I love that when I step on the gas, it moves. Yes, the gas mileage sucks...fortunately, I don't commute to and from work and mostly drive for appointments and pleasure. As another reviewer noted, if you're looking for good gas mileage, this isn't for you. But if you want something that will get you through Midwestern winters with the blizzards, this is it.

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.

This is my first Jeep. I am a former Volvo and Mercedes owner. I feel that the Liberty is well made and a great everyday driver. I have read reviews that people complain about the interior quality, I feel for a Jeep it's above par. The only thing I would have liked to see is better gas milage.

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.

The Jeep Liberty is a perfect buy for a new driver. It is safe, rigid and gives a reasonably good ride. The visibility is outstanding, as the driver sits tall. The styling is angular, very stoic! The fuel economy is not stellar, a small sacrifice to an otherwise riice driving car. Maintenance is very reasonable. There is no timing belt to change. The heater core seems to be the only achilles heal. Replacement of that can be avoided with coolant flushes every 50K miles. All in all, great buy!!
