Looking for a small SUV? This review is the key.

My vehicle is a 04 Jeep liberty sport. It is a really nice SUV for someone who wants an SUV but nothing huge. It is a hatchback so there isn't much a truck area. If you are a taller person, this SUV is not for you. The leg room is limited. It does have 4 wheel drive which makes it nice for the winter months. The downfall to this vehicle is the gas mileage. I drive 10 miles to and from work and I have to fill my tank once every week/week and a half. Also, the vehicle is a roll hazard so experienced responsible drivers should only own this kind. I hope this helps you make your choice on the make and model.

The Jeep liberty: a short review.

The car is very comfortable, very durable and reliable. Only reoccurring problems I have had are rather minor such as window motor problems and an occasional engine misfire. None of which have been costly repairs. Includes 4-wheel drive which is helpful in the winter. It does well in the snow and performs well under harsh conditions. Also has a remote starter and spare tire on the back. My Jeep is a sort of tan green color which makes it distinguishable and conspicuous, it gets decent gas mileage in the form of both city and highway miles. It is not extremely comfortable on long rides but it is doable.

My old, but still kicking, workhorse.

My vehicle was used when I bought it, and had both the engine and transmission replaced. The vehicle runs quite well, and for a small SUV gets decent highway miles(18.5MPG). The primary problem that I have had with my vehicle is that it fails to come out of 4-wheel drive, and you must shut off the car in order to do so. The most expensive problem I've had with my vehicle was replacing two radiators within 3 months of each other, which I blame on the poor crimp the manufactures used on the radiator tanks. Other than that it has been a reliable, and smooth driving vehicle.
