Cons: Would like more seat adjustment.
Advice: Compare HIGHLANDER and JEEPSolid as a rail on the freeway, excellent cornering. Both were a very pleasant surprise. Brand new I got 20 MPG highway which will improve. Surprising quiet (road noise) on the freeway as well. I am very happy with power and pick-up. Short on cargo space. Arm rests would be nice. Excellent quality and finish. Would have wanted seat bottom tilt . These only go forward and rear and back told. I am very happy with it.
Cons: Door pulls
Advice: Look at this vehicle before ploping down money on a Honda, etc.Why would anyone pay 25-30K for a Honda, Toyota, Isuzu, etc., when they can experience the quality and style of a Land Rover for around the same price. This vehicle is every inch a Land Rover don't let it's small size fool you. Standard are all the features you pay extra for on all other vehicles and then some. I was sold, hope to keep it a long time.
Pros: the ease of getting in and out (new owner w/ bad back!)
Cons: no 'cubby holes' for quick storage of small items
Advice: take your time with pricing and options- it took me over a month to find the 'right' carcomfortable ride, great visibility - no blind spots, good ergonomics, v-6 engine w/ pep, bought the vehicle on the spot
Pros: It has very good handling in traffic and on country roads
Cons: Placement of the gear shift lever is awkward
Advice: If you are looking for a 4 1/2 passenger smaller SUV with a lot of good features and good power and handling, this is a good choice.It has good handling on many different road surfaces and in traffic and on freeways as well as country roads. It has better window and mirror than on the other SUV's I sat in. I like its rugged looks, its versatility and its ample room as a small SUV.
Pros: The reinforced steel cage.
Cons: The door opening width.
Advice: Its a great nimble 'small' suv with lots of interior room.The Jeep Liberty accelerates quickly and manuveurs like a sports car. I am getting close to 20 mpg on the 3.7l v-6 engine. It has more leg and head room than the Grand Cherokee, which is a plus since I am 6'3'.
Pros: VARYING POSITION OF THE SEAT
Cons: NOTHING REALLY
Advice: THIS SHOULD BE YOUR CHOICE IN SUVThis was a master piece, comfort ,style class, obvoous durability and dependability. Comfortable seats, steering position armrest head rest cup holder , The rugged ride the position for hill climb , the position for sand driving or wet roads. Leg room and passenger comfort was obvious.
Pros: Easy to read control panel/remote control for the back window
Cons: Reaching over the tire to get into the back.
Advice: Drive one, it's worth it.My husband and I wanted a new vehicle. What we wanted was a 4x4, with towing ability and a comfortable ride. That was a challenge. My husband and I searched out everything from A to Z, test drove them as well. somethings were too mushy, others were too truck like. While on our search and distroy mission my husband looked at a Liberty, then he asked if I liked the way it looked. I was taken by the look. We went on a test drive and we were sold. It has a smooth ride, not too mushy and not too truck like. It responds well to stepping on it in traffic conditions. We towed a trailer with it and it was just great, the ride didn't change at all, still smooth. Can't wait for a good snow, then we can play with the 4 wheel drive!
