My vehicles interesting detail is that my heaters like to go out every new years.

My vehicle is very reliable, I have driven from New York state all the way to the state of Florida multiple time in the past few years. The seats are very comfortable although I do wish that my vehicle had seat warmers for the harsh winters in New York state. My Jeep has a plug in so you can listen to the music on your phone which is very nice when there is nothing good to listen to on the radio station to block out the sounds of the ghetto on road trips. It also includes a car horn that I tend to use very frequently to inform other drivers that they should have never been given their license and that they have been awarded the hand gesture of a million I hate you.

For a 2006 vehicle, the body and the engine have held up well.

Considering the vehicle is 12 years old, it runs well. The body is still in good condition, except for scrapes made by the previous owner. The seats show wear and tear, but nothing unreasonable for a vehicle this old. I have an engine light which is on most of the time but the code is obscure and my mechanic has struggled to figure out a fix. The back door does not work properly. The hinge for the window does not work. I am unable to open the door because a part needs to be replaced in order for it to lock and unlock traditionally. Overall, for a 2006 vehicle, it does well.

The Jeep Liberty is a cute, fun, reliable vehicle that will not let you down!

I love my Jeep Liberty because it is compact, cute, and fun! It has plenty of space in the back to accommodate small loads of groceries all the way up to a weekend away at the beach with the kids. It has 4-wheel drive, which has been wonderful for projects in the muddy yard, and enough power to tow a trailer. The gas mileage is decent, so no complaints there. It has great visibility all the way around, which is important to me. It is easy to get in and out of and provides a comfy ride. It is basic and reliable. I've owned it for 12 years and it's been good to me!
