Generations of Jeep safety & dependability.

I purchased 3 different Jeep liberty vehicles in the past 15 years. They are dependable, sturdy, easy to drive and very rarely have mechanical issues. My last Jeep liberty had 137, 000 miles on it when we traded it in. When I purchased my current Jeep liberty I did not bother to test drive her. Yes, I name all my Jeeps, they are of course women. My husband and daughter also own Jeeps. We continue to purchase Jeep products because they are safe and dependable in all kinds of weather and road conditions. Our experiences with Jeep dealerships throughout the years have been awesome, even when we were 900 miles away from home. My next vehicle will be a Jeep but not a liberty because they are no longer manufactured. So I suppose I will need to test drive my next Jeep before I name her.

The most luxurious common vehicle out there.

I love my vehicle. It is easy to drive, has smooth braking, nice leather seats and good gas mileage. I feel like it is easy to use, and the only problem I have ever experienced was low tire pressure issues, where my sensor continued to go off despite my tires all having perfect tire pressure. I had to take the car into the shop to have them work on the sensor. Other than that it has worked quite well for me in the cold weather, and the 4 wheel drive is incredibly nice to have, especially since the snow in Illinois can be difficult to drive in. I am a big fan of Jeeps and would highly recommend this model to any family member or friend interested in buying a car.

Love this jeep for my family.

Handles great and is comfortable to drive. I live in a place that can experience extreme temperature differences - super snowy winters, flash flooding in the spring, really hot summers. In the winter I have never had an issue getting around in the snow/ice, the jeep is trail-rated so I can go through deeper water on the streets, and the a/c kicks in quickly to cool the car down in the summer. No real issues with the car, just standard maintenance things have been needed.
