2002 Jeep liberty sport-reliability, issues.

I haven't owned my vehicle for long, but there has already been multiple problems with it unfortunately. The bolts on the front driver's side wheel fused, so I had to get them drilled off in order to replace the breaks. The calipers and rotors were also bad, so they had to be replaced as well. however, there are also a lot of good features. I enjoy the 4 wheel drive, and the stability of the car. I lived in an area where there was lots of snow and ice, and my vehicle performed great. It is an older model, so it has 'crank' or roll-down windows. The wheels are stable and there is minimal shaking when you drive down the freeway. I also just went on a 4 day long trip all the way across the country, and my vehicle performed very well. I got an average of 18-23 mpg, so the cost wasn't as through-the-roof as I expected it to be for an SUV.

I definitely would recommend my Jeep to anyone considering buying of these

I love my Jeep, however, there are some things that you should know before purchasing one of these vehicles. First, the gas mileage is not very good. I need to fill my gas tank up at least once a week, even just driving to work and back. On the plus side it drives amazingly in the winter. With the 4wd capability I am able to get through the snow with absolutely no issues whatsoever! The vehicle is very reliable, I have never had any issues with it. Considering the age and mileage of this vehicle I was surprised to see how well It has performed over the past couple years of owning it. The vehicle is very compact as well and can maneuver very easily. It has a short turning radius which is perfect when turning around in tight areas as well. Overall I love this car and was perfect as my first car.

2002 Jeep liberty sport- great road trip vehicle, has areas of concern.

Overall a good, reliable vehicle. Biggest complaints are the 3. 7 v-6 is horribly underpowered for the liberty, and the brakes are weak by modern vehicle standards. Another area of concern is the lack of stability and random loss of control while off-roading- the liberty is a goat that will go anywhere off-road, but you have to keep it under 10 miles per hour, over 10 miles per hour and the rear end will spin out 180 degrees and point you in another direction, this is the only 4x4 vehicle I have ever had with this stability problem, and nobody can seem to diagnose what causes it. The vehicle runs and drives flawlessly, all accessories work and is comfortable. Decent, but not exceptional gas mileage. Very comfortable road trip car.
