Radiator nightmare, expensive tires.

The parts and tires are so expensive and I have had nothing but problems with the radiator. I have had to replace things on it so often the guys at AutoZone remember me and joke that Jeep stands for "just empty every pocket" as for comfort the seats are nice, upholstery is comfortable. The stitching on the steering wheel felt kind of terrible I had to cover it with a fuzzy cover. It stands up to damage like any other vehicle I have owned. Not a month after a got it a fedex truck smacked me in a parking lot and left a huge dent above my back tire. But thankfully it was only cosmetic damage.

Jeep liberty will last you for the long haul.

I really love the sports utility vehicles because of the space and ability to get through the snowy winters over a sedan. I upgraded to an SUV also because I wanted to be able to move myself from apartment to apartment without renting a truck. The thing that I dislike the most is the gas mileage. I get only 16-18 miles per gallon. This is the main thing that makes me want to trade in my vehicle for a newer more gas efficient model. Also, after having the vehicle for 10 years, the lights and windows are starting to breakdown and need replacing.

Reliable and wonderful all around.

My 2005 Jeep liberty is very reliable. I have owned it for 8 years now and it had never let me down. The 4 wheel drive gets me where I need to go, no matter the weather. The large front window allows easy viability of everything around me. I feel very safe driving my Jeep liberty. The seats are comfortable and the back provides a lot of storage. I love the hatchback, it allows easy transportation for many types of things whether it be fence posts or pets. My Jeep liberty drives smoothly and has a great classic type look to it.
