All interior is cheap plastic. Sides have come off seats, dash scratches easily. The speakers in the door have already blown. It gets the same gas mileage as the larger cabin jeep grand Cherokee, which I will upgrade to when I'm no longer upside down on this Liberty. I should have listened to my gut and returned it within the 5 day grace period. I can't wait to sell it. Not enough space for 4 people to take a road trip either.

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.208333333333333 reviews) I should have done more research. My current lease was ending and I needed a new vehicle. I found a 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport with low mileage and at a great price, so I got it. In reality, I probably could’ve lived with it but I’m so happy that the dealership has a 3-day guarantee return policy. After a couple days of driving, I realized I had made a mistake. After one day, the gas meter was down a third – this thing eats gas. I did some research and realized how poorly this Jeep ranks relative to other vehicles from 2012. There are just so many more – better performing – vehicle choices. The body is super heavy, and takes effort to stop. The steering is stiff and uncomfortable, and the acceleration isn’t great.

A: Rear-wheel drive comes standard on all Jeep Liberty model years, but four-wheel drive is optional. For the 2012 model year, two different four-wheel drive systems were available (a part-time four-wheel drive and a full-time four-wheel drive system known as the Selec-Trac).

Jeep Liberty vs. Other SUVs

Jeep Liberty vs. Other SUVs

The Jeep Liberty had its fair share of competition throughout its decade of production. Compare and contrast the Jeep Liberty with a few of its top contenders below.

2012 Jeep Patriot

The Jeep Patriot is a popular choice among those who want a more compact ride than the Liberty has to offer without sacrificing the off-roading capabilities offered by the Jeep brand. For the 2012 model year specifically, the standard 2.0L four-cylinder engine leaves much to be desired for those who prioritize power behind the wheel.

Likely due to its smaller size, the Jeep Patriot does get better fuel economy than the Liberty. Specifically, the 2012 Patriot base trim with 2.4L engine gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined (21 city and 25 highway), compared to 18 mpg combined for the 2012 Liberty base trim with 3.7L engine.1

2011 Dodge Nitro

The Dodge Nitro was a brawny SUV produced from 2007-2011; interestingly enough, the Nitro and the Liberty share a very similar powertrain and overall platform. The main difference is that the Nitro offers a more powerful V6 engine in the 2011 model year. From a fuel economy standpoint, the 2011 Nitro with base 4.0L V6 engine gets an EPA-estimated 17 mpg combined, which is in-line with the 2011 Liberty's 17 mpg combined in base trim with 3.7L V6 engine.1

2012 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape has been a long-standing contender in the SUV class for many years. Compared to the Jeep Liberty, the Escape offers a more compact size but still affords seating for up to five people. The 2012 Escape's base 2.5L, four-cylinder engine is lackluster compared to the 2012 Liberty's V6, though a more powerful 3.0L V6 is optional on the Escape. The Escape also lacks some standard features that the Liberty offers, including Bluetooth® connectivity.

The Escape gets a slightly better fuel economy at an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined in its 2012 model year with base trim and 2.5L four-cylinder engine.1

1Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new. Fuel economy may vary for reasons like driving conditions and vehicle history. Unless specified, figures are for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. See fueleconomy.gov.

Not a good daily vehicle.

I should have done more research. My current lease was ending and I needed a new vehicle. I found a 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport with low mileage and at a great price, so I got it. In reality, I probably could’ve lived with it but I’m so happy that the dealership has a 3-day guarantee return policy. After a couple days of driving, I realized I had made a mistake.

There are just so many more – better performing – vehicle choices. The body is super heavy, and takes effort to stop. The steering is stiff and uncomfortable, and the acceleration isn’t great. Once you need to get....

Pros

  • Interior Space: Good size interior
  • Visibility: Sits high, good views

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: Guzzles gas
  • Ride and Handling: Stiff steering, awkward acceleration and braking
  • Cabin Noise: Louder than most

- HeyGuy Johnson, 2012 Jeep Liberty

It's a good looking Jeep on the outside. Not worth the money on the inside.

The driver cabin is too small. I don't like feeling like the dash is in my lap. All interior is cheap plastic. Sides have come off seats, dash scratches easily. The speakers in the door have already blown. It gets the same gas mileage as the larger cabin jeep grand Cherokee, which I will upgrade to when I'm no longer upside down on this Liberty. I should have listened to my gut and returned it within the 5 day grace period. I can't wait to sell it. Not enough space for 4 people to take a road trip either.

Pros

  • Cargo Space: Lots of space in the back
  • Styling: Great looking jeep

Cons

  • Braking: Brakes have already failed at 45,000 miles
  • Dashboard: All interior is plastic

MECHANICAL ISSUES

I like the Jeep brand, I have a 1992 Jeep Cherokee Limited that I've owned for 21 years; it has never given me any trouble. As for this Jeep, I have had several mechanical issues since purchasing in June 2021. Issues with the transmission, the A/C, the gas cap and fuel line. I have had to drive the vehicle back to Roseville 4 times in 2 months. They are "working on getting it fixed." I have expressed that I want to be put into a different vehicle, but so far, it doesn't look like they want to do that for me. I am hoping for a good outcome.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling:
  • Seat Comfort:

Cons

  • Fuel Economy:
  • Reliability:
