Jeep Liberty..Good Small SUV

by Jeff
(Dallas, Texas)



I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. Overall, my Jeep Liberty is a good small SUV. The Liberty has a nice ride. The salesperson told me all about the independent front suspension and how that improved the ride vs. other Jeeps, which I agree with.

The Liberty is also relatively spacious inside, but the back seat can be a little small for taller adults. However, I do like the cargo space in the Liberty and the fact that it has a decent towing capacity. I use mine to tow a jet ski to the lake on weekends.

I use my Jeep Liberty as a Commuter. I live in a metropolitan area, but it is nice to have a small SUV that has relatively good gas mileage (I get between 17-20 miles per gallon in the city and 20-25 highway), with the flexibility of more cargo space than a normal car.

I believe the mix of men to women driving Liberty's is pretty even.

20 mpg in city...17 when I took it offroad.... Haven't been on a long highway trip yet, but expect at least 23 or more.

It gets negative reviews compared to the Xterra and others, but when you compare individual features the Jeep mostly comes out ahead so there appears to be bias against this model. I like mine. It has the upgraded wider and heavier treaded all terrain tires. I've driven the Xterra and Pathfinder and the Liberty felt more in touch onroad. The Pathfinder was smoother off road, but neither Nissans could match the Jeep's handling on road...other than speed, which really shouldn't be a big concern for a true SUV. Maybe it's the tires ??? My only complaint is the uncomfortable driver's seat, which I remedied...

I almost forgot !! It's great offroad. I have the V6 automatic 4x4 with full heavy duty offroad features...standard...DEFINITELY not a "Crossover" wannabe...Very capable.
