Not very roomy or fast and it likes fuel (only around 18 mpg hwy) but a solid SUV that with proper tires will get you almost anywhere. My Jeep has the manual transmission which in my opinion is better than the auto on 2007-2011 models and helps a bit with the mileage. It,s a ton of fun with the soft top down and you always get waves from other Jeepers. But they do stand out a bit so if you would rather not be seen you might want to look elsewhere, however if you want a vehicle that works hard and plays harder you will be pleased. Not to mention the HUGE variety of aftermarket accessories available to make it your own!
Good for a small SUV
2012 Jeep LibertyMike P - Fresno, CA06/12/2015
The liberty is a smooth and quiet ride with very good steering and handling. Interior is well designed w/ easy to reach controls that aren't complicated to learn. 4WD performance is adequate for all but the most grueling trails, but you wouldn't take a stock vehicle on those. Storage is quite good for a small SUV. My only complaint is that it's just a bit too small of an interior to be comfortable for several hours of straight driving. Power is acceptable and pulls a small boat or trailer easily through the hills though don't expect to win any drag races even while not towning. I only rate this "good" because the small interior does come at a bit of a sacrifice to my family's comfort. I'm 6' 1" & 240lbs.
2014 Jeep CherokeeC. O. - Birmingham, AL07/03/2017
I would not recommend this car to a friend because I find it hard to drive. It has larger blind spots than I realized when I test drove the car. A bigger issue is its reliability. It seems to have electronic issues. It's been in the shop 3 weeks out of the 14 that I have owned the car. If I hadn't bought the warranty, I would have been walking for those 3 weeks. The warranty entitles me to a loaner car when my car is in the shop, but it has sometimes been a hassle to get the loaner car. Eventually I get a loaner, but I traded in an 11 year old car because of dependability issues. At this point I miss my old car. I'm not sure I will be keeping this car very long, and I'm sure I'm going to be out quite a bit when I trade it.
