Jeep Liberty sport A dependable Spacious SUV

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

The Jeep Liberty sport is a boxy stiff ride but it feels sturdy and dependable. It's a nice size for an SUV and you can see nicely over the steering wheel to the front of the truck. It's a comfortable height off the ground and In my opinion holds up to the Sport title. Although it's not the best in the snow, thankfully we don't get too much in New Jersey. The gas mileage is not the best either. It's quite spacious and has ample leg room. I can't say much about the manual transmission because I have automatic. I'd recommend the Jeep Liberty sport to someone who's not too worried about having a fancy vehicle. Not being flashy it lends well to almost being a work vehicle. You can fold down the back seats and fit tons of gear and or furniture, etc.

Jeep liberty is very roomy inside and has a great leg room for back seat.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

This vehicle has been amazing for myself and my family. I haven't had many problems at all with this vehicle. However, the only thing that is kind of a downer would be the gas mileage that the Liberty gets. I live out of town in the country and the gas mileage with all these hills is not very good I go through about 100-50.00 of gas a week and I only live about 10 minutes from town. However this vehicle gets great mileage on the highway and is super roomy for family vacations to throw the luggage in the truck and head on out.

- Heather B

Not the best SUV for your money.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

A/c is not very good and there is none in the back. Multiple electric window motors have broken and replacing them is expensive. Rear brake lights burn out about six times a year. Takes too much gas. It has not overheated or stalled out on me at all, it mostly runs fine and my husband can do most repairs at home. Very lacking in features. No locking seatbelt in middle back seat which is where an infant car-seat should be placed.

- Marie S

tolerates owner's with poor maintenance habits

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

my jeep has been pretty good overall. I have 120k miles on it, and have not had any major issues. Had problems with the AC, and recently the radiator, water pump and thermostat, which is normal for the mileage it has. I have been pretty hard on the jeep. I have semi regularly gone 7500 miles between oil changes, never did much of the service maintenance that's recommended, and never had any engine problems.

- Craig V

Jeep liberty - lots of space, decent on gas, great stereo system, sport package.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

Very spacious, seating is comfortable and roomy, satellite radio and a tow package were included and it runs great! Uses a little more gas than I am used to but still efficient for the size. I like that it feels almost like driving a truck. Speaker systems are high quality and I am able to connect my phone via aux cord for hands free phone calls and listening to my personal playlists.

- Casey L

Long lasting. Throughout all of the years I have had this

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

Brakes and radiator is all of what I have had to replace. Overall I have not had too much to purchase nor have I had too many repairs for this vehicle. I have had an accident in this vehicle but insurance fixed all and no other issues to report. I drive this vehicle to work and for private events. So many miles go upon this vehicle.

- Yolanda H

Spacious, easy to clean, rough on gas.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

Very spacious interior, easy to clean material. I have only had the vehicle for a year and have already had several issues with it. The radio stopped working, the back window hatch won't close all the way. Overall it isn't a bad vehicle, as long as you're not commuting very far. Gas mileage is probably the biggest downfall.

- Jackie H

Reliable car for active lifestyles.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

This car is a reliable and fun ride. Not too big or too small, it is a great choice for people with pets, children, a love of the outdoors (or all of the above) - roomy enough to fit everything but not so big to impede parking. Nothing fancy but handles well and is dependable in all types of weather and road conditions.

- Chris P

Great work or recreation car!!

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

Performance wise is a little sluggish but what you would expect from a Jeep. It is very comfortable with a decent amount of room. The four wheel drive is great in the snow and mud. The only complaint I have is the gas mileage. But if you are just using it as a work or recreation vehicle it is not all bad

- Jason H

This is the first SUV I have had. I enjoy the height difference from a typical car.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

It has a few parts missing, we've already had to fix an oil leak, it uses a lot of gasoline, the check engine light is on and it says to change oil and we just put new oil in less than 5 months ago. I am on the short side in height and I wish the seat was adjustable so I could see over the hood better.

- Sara O

The black pearl rides smooth and comfy!

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

Bought it used, previous owner seems to have taken care of it and I think maintenance makes all the difference with the jeep. So far it's been reliable and really fun. With the right tires she is a little mountain goat. The whole family rides comfortable and relaxed. Smooth ride and great handling.

- Mikaela D

The Vehicle You Just Have To Have

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

This vehicle is amazing. Comfortable seats, durable, spacious seating area and hatch back area, fits all of my baby needs from stroller and pack and play to trips to sam's club. The square frame dashboard is the perfect style making it to where everything isn't cramped together.

- Amber D

Reliable, beautiful, tough jeeps can be for just luxury or rock climbing.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

My jeep is very spacious. Its reliable and has four wheel drive. It has great gas mileage. My jeep has leather interior stock radio/compact disc player. It HSS foldable seats so you can open up the whole back so you can transport large items than normal.. All in all I love it.

- Casey K

Amazing and Smooth Ride to drive

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

This vehicle drives very well! For a 2012, it is one of the better cars on the market! It is very reliable and will make you feel safe! This car has amazing features and will blow you away. The only negative thing I have to say about this jeep is it not having a sunroof.

- Jamal G

My vehicle is a small SUV with 4 wheel drive and has off road capability.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

I love the size of the vehicle. It is perfect for me. It has 4 wheel drive that works great in the winter. The interior is simple and comes with satellite radio. Takes conventional oil or synthetic. I did have to replace the shocks and struts as well as the abs system.


Amazing Jeep Very Comfortable

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

My car is very comfortable although the check engine will randomly turn on and off. I love the leather seats and it's an easy car to clean. A very reliable car and trustworthy for crashes. I dislike the fact that there are no back seat vents. Otherwise an amazing car.

- Katrina M

I love my Jeep Liberty. Driving it is always fun.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

I'm extremely happy with my Jeep Liberty. It drives great and has plenty of power. It's very dependable in the summer months for road trips or in the winter months getting around in snowy weather. I would definitely buy another Jeep for myself or my teenage daughters.

- Vincent B

Jeep Liberty Owner Review

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

I have not had any problems with my vehicle. I keep up to date on routine maintenance and have only had to replace the starter and water pump. This was my first Jeep but I doubt it will be my last. My vehicle currently has 144000 miles and is still going strong!

- Teresa N

It has Bluetooth. So it's easy to connect your phone to listen to music.

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

The alternator broke after owning it for 6 months. But over all my vehicle handles a lot, for example rough terrain and deep potholes. It's good on gas although the mileage goes up pretty quick. Other than that I love my jeep. Wouldn't drive anything but a Jeep.

- Courtney R

Reliable, but room to improve

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

I find it irritating that there is no rear air, or miles to empty. I love the aesthetics of my Jeep. It is very reliable, and I trust it on the snowiest of days. The gas mileage is not the best for commuting to work, but the reliability makes it worth it for me.

- Sarah F

Jeep Liberty with great leather interior!

2012 Jeep Liberty Sport

I really like the leather seats and seat heaters. I enjoyed the middle compartment storage space as well as the pull cover for the trunk. I have had issues with misfiring cylinders but I love the car too much to get rid of it. So, I put a new engine in it.
