2002 Jeep LibertyRacechik20 - Kansas City, MO02/09/2007
My Jeep Liberty Limited is fantastic. It sits higher than a previous SUV I owned and it very easy to see your surroundings. The 4-wheel Drive works awesome and the gas mileage is economical for an SUV. The sporty body style is what attracted me to the Liberty in the first place. For the money it's great!
Smooth, Stylish, yet sensitive
2011 Jeep LibertyBrittney - Katy, TX03/05/2015
I absolutely love my Jeep!! She rides smoothly and looks stylish as well. The only con I noticed is it's really sensitive. I tightened my gas cap and moved it a little, when I got in I noticed the message GASCAP on my dash. I got out and moved it a little and the error message disappeared. Gave me a heart attack! Haha but other than that, I'm looking forward to the time I get to spend in my Jeep liberty!

2007 Jeep LibertySadie - Houston, TX12/11/2007
This jeep has been an absolute blessing for me. I can see better sitting up just high enough. It's a smooth drive with a little bit of kick, but easy to control. I've got great sound when I play my music and it's just a fun truck to drive and it totally fits me. When car shopping it was the only car I ever wanted and the only vehicle I could see myself driving. Now it can eat up some gas, but only if you'e doing a seriously big amount of driving but it was still worth it. In my opinion the Jeep has the best body shape than any other SUV. I love my JEEP!:)
Jeep Liberty Overview
As a spiritual successor to the Jeep Cherokee (which returned in 2014), the Jeep Liberty has everything you would expect - it has good off-road capability, control, and utility. This five-passenger compact SUV is also affordable, keeping it ahead of the pack.
Jeep Liberty History
Debuted in 2002, the Jeep Liberty was the spiritual successor to the Jeep Cherokee and was continuously upgraded throughout its run. It received its first full redesign in 2008, which refreshed its appearance to give the Liberty a more classic Jeep feel. Since its cosmetic redo, the four-cylinder engine option was discontinued to leave the 3.7L V6 engine as the only available option.
How It Drives
As one of the few truly off-road vehicles in its class, this vehicle is best in situations that many other cars cannot handle well. Namely, slippery rock, mud, and snow are barely a challenge to the Jeep Liberty. In contrast, the Liberty is not fully refined on-road, though later editions and modifications to the suspension layout have made it better for highway driving and urban living than previous versions. On some higher trims, the interior is upgraded to be more comfortable for drivers and passengers alike.
Used Jeep Liberty Value
The Jeep Liberty, even in later editions, operates similarly to its original models. Most of its changes over the years were cosmetic. With the Jeep Cherokee revived, the Jeep Liberty is decidedly more affordable when shopping for used compact SUVs with off-road capabilities.
Jeep Liberty Standard Features
The 2008 Liberty is available with a choice between four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive. In recent models, the Jeep Liberty is equipped with a 3.7L V6 engine with either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic. Otherwise, expect the same or equivalent features found in each compact SUV in its class.
