This is the best vehicle I have owned.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I love my jeep. I have owned it for 2 1/2 years now and I do not ever want to own another vehicle. I did buy it used but have had very few problems. Mostly just normal wear and tear. I did have to replace the transmission at about 160,000 miles but that is the only major problem I have had. There is also a common problem with the radiator getting a leak on plastic piece at the seam but it is a quick and cheap fix. The four wheel drive works great. I love being able to lock it in just by pulling a lever while driving or sitting still. I would definitely recommend a jeep liberty to others.

I have a whole bunch of bumper stickers on the back

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

It does not drive smoothly, meaning that you can feel every little bump in the road, but my Jeep Liberty has been so reliable especially on my commutes to and from school three times a week for the past two years. I hate to give it up but I don't want to take the risk of using it until it dies. The vehicle itself is comfortable, but definitely not the most comfortable thing but you can definitely spend a few hours drive in comfort. The features are not great; I installed an aftermarket radio and it works beautifully and I believe it improves the value of the vehicle.

A compact SUV that gets you from point A to point B in comfort, style, and care.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I really love my Jeep Liberty. Ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to have a Jeep one day. I love the size of the Jeep Liberty, it's an SUV while still feeling small enough. A couple years back I had to have a tow hitch installed due to a recall with one of the parts, but that has been one of the only 'problems' I have encountered with this vehicle. My interior is comfortable black leather seating, lots of storage in the back, and a stereo. It's a reliable car that I am so grateful to own.

Great traction in all terrains.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I bought my Jeep used. I haven't had any issues with it nor the owner before. Great traction in all terrains. It's been driven in rain, snow, flooding. Super great heating system for cold months and incredible air conditioning. I love the overdrive on my Jeep the most. Gives the Jeep a lot of power for off roading.Good gas mileage for such a heavy duty model. I've never had any other car than my Jeep and I hope I can always have it.

- Sabrina M

A highly reliable vehicle my Jeep Liberty

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

My 2003 Jeep Liberty has plenty of space and the car drives well although being a little too heavy the car is very reliable good on gas. It's has plenty of room for up to 4 people and plenty of cargo space when the seat are folded. The entire time I've own my vehicle I've had no major engine problems. Finally all I have to say is that as long as you treat this type of vehicle with respect it will last you a very long time.

Pros/cons from a mom of 2

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I love my Jeep but had a lot of problems with my engine. I did buy it used so the dealership did fix it and it's also 15 yrs old. It's very comfortable, I used to drive a lot for work, and there's plenty of backseat space for my children. One other complaint is the electric windows, instead of the switch being on the door it's on the center console. It's nothing major just an inconvenience.

- Lacy B

2003 Jeep Liberty!! It's a good little vehicle it has its days.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

Overall it's a good vehicle, it has some issues, a/c doesn't work, door panels are broke, the electric fan for the radiator is making a noise, was told its the bearings. Back driver side window is off track. The back door is dented, we had a new one for it but someone stole it. The visor on driver side is broke, the seats won't lay back (no handles). One speaker for stereo doesn't work.

- CINDY G

Great vehicle little issues and good space.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I bought my jeep with 160,000 miles on it. Now it has 174,500 miles on it and I had no engine issues the only thing I had to fix on it was 2 wheel bearings and new brakes. I drove it on a 700 Mile Road trip with no issues. It has a lot of space for passengers and luggage without feeling cramped definitely would recommend this vehicle.

White Jeep Liberty with great story

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I bought this Jeep used on Craigslist in 2017. It is a white Jeep Liberty. My vehicle has not had too many problems over the few years I have had it. I have taken it to the shop a few times due to the engine light being on and low air in the tires. It is extremely comfortable and I recently had a brand new stereo system installed.

You can make the tightest turns and snow or rain does not slow it down.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

My jeep can take off road and highway trips and run smooth and has great gas mileage. It can turn on a dime and while it has tilted at times, it has never rolled over as some trucks will do. It has great traction in snow and rain. The oil pan did rust out and had to be replaced as well as the spark plug wires.

My first and favorite car: Betsy the silver Jeep Liberty that keeps on going

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I've had this car for 13 years and it is great. It is getting a bit older now and has a high mileage, leading to some performance issues related to age, but it is still comfortable and has only ever had 1 break-down it it's entire lifetime. Features are lacking some, but I don't need a fancy car to get around

- Catherine M

Jeep liberty sport is a great vehicle for those who need lots of space.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I have really enjoyed my jeep liberty, it has lots of space and I love all the room it has in the trunk area. I also find the option to just open the back glass very convenient. There are not many downsides that I have found, other than the gas mileage. It is not terrible, but it definitely could be better.

- Caroline G

4 wheel drive. Spacious sport vehicle.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

She very reliable. The biggest issue this year so far way tires. Drives smoothly through snow. No repair issues for 3 years except the tires. Fairly comfortable for a sport Jeep. Not like a luxury vehicle. 4 wheel drive is very convenient in snow and mud. High tip over risk however that's never happened.

- Renee R

Jeep Liberty all the ins and outs

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

Gas mileage is average but it is built to last. It is great for everyday travel and use on different terrains. The comfort of the car is well enough for someone who like small space and will be able to travel very lightly on trips. Overall the gas mileage is about average but does better than most cars

- William M

Great to drive, easy to get around in, easy for parking and just a great fun.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

Love the jeep! Will keep forever, as long as I can drive! Just a fun and useful vehicle. Decent fuel mileage, comfortable, quiet, and very stylish! Can haul stuff, go to dinner, great for grocery shopping because of rear gate opening, great for my dogs, they love to go in the jeep.

- Jack M

Jeep Liberty. Very great vehicle.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

It's great it just isn't very good on gas. Very good motor. Have had it for awhile and I have only had one problem. It is kind of a smaller vehicle but I love it. I'm a Chevy kind of person but I love this car. I wish it had more cargo room though and was better on gas mileage

- Hope B

Fun car, not for everyone

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

Vehicle is loud and has terrible gas mileage but what can you expect from a Jeep. The cabin is comfortable enough and the finishes are what you'd expect in a vehicle of its age and class. With close to 200,000 miles the vehicle has certainly held up as much as I could hope.

- Timothy S

My dream car..What a jeep!

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

Needs a new battery but other than that the vehicle runs fine. I love how it is a gas saver and gets me around with no problem. I hate that my back window is broken, but it is a very comfortable truck. And the tires are smooth just like I like them. I love my vehicle.

- Jordan M

Easier to enter/exit for older folks.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I love the jeep. As an older person, I find it easier to get into and out of a car that sits higher. The only real problem with this model is that the back window comes open by itself. We 'fixed' it by ramming a sneaker between the window and the spare tire holder.

- Suzanne P

jeep liberty positive and negatives

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

The jeep liberty is great it's really comfy, has really good features, the only bad thing about it is the gas mileage. I am constantly filling up my gas tank. Sometimes when driving through a canyon you can experience the rpm raising and lowering drastically often.

- hannah A

Good vehicle, wouldn't change it

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

Has a lot of mileage, ac not working, driver side window not working, need step to get in car. Has crack window, back window shocks need replacing. Other than that it works great. Love the way it drives, runs smoothly, even with all the miles. Wouldn't change it

- Carlos M

A simplistic review from an average consumer.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

As a daily driver, the car is great. Mileage is decent and the cargo area is a generous size. The bottom of the chassis does rust easily and the alternator would need replacing once the vehicle is ten years or older but for reliable transport it is perfect.

- Kelsey H

Keeps both family and sport vehicles . A truest all purpose automobile.

2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

I love the way it handles both on and off road and the comfortable design however it has lower gas mileage than some SUVs but it more than makes up for it in reliably and the roomy cargo space makes for both a family vehicle and a recreational vehicle.
