Pros: car like feeling
Cons: road rumbling noice and Fuel consumption
Advice: Go for it-ve are high fuel consumption and tire rumbling noice
Cons: Gas consumption...still very reasonable
Advice: the liberty is bar none the better deal...for what we neededVery muscular, solid ride. Unlike the --Hyundae Santa Fe--, which has issues getting in the front doors and less solid, and the --Kia Sorento--, which looks like an SUV on the outside but drives and looks like the Sadona on the inside, the Liberty Limited Edition is tight, absolutely solid, and has some really neat options....the liberty is bar none the better deal...and forget the --Toyota 1.8 L Matrix--...I was afraid I'd break half the plastic on it during the test drive!! The Durango was sharp...but we did not need it's size. Hummer too pricey and big. The Highlander was a consideration, but the price and jeep name sold the liberty.
Pros: The way it looks inside and out
Cons: No armrest, small vanity mirror, and Wish the optional cruise was on the steering wheel
Advice: get the optionals on ebay or other online sources, cheaper then the dealerI have had the car for one month now and I am still IN LOVE WITH IT. Its a quiet ride, comfortable (do much head and leg room in both the front and back. Love the Stereo (bad placement of rear speakers though and could use an amplifier).The speedometer took me 2 days to get used to but now its the most natural thing to look at the dash. The cargo space has come in handy in more then one way. Excellent gas mileage even when I run the air on full blast (NICE AIR , have yet to use the heat). BEST OF ALL I NO LONGER DRIVE A JELLY BEAN!
Pros: looks great
Cons: gas mileage terrible
Advice: nonegreat suv gas mileage sucks 4.0 liter cherokee got much better mieage than this 3.7 bad move very dissapointed with that
Pros: Harmon Kardon Stereo System
Cons: The fact that it is always in the shop...
Advice: Dont get this car!I bought this car with 16000 miles on it and have had it for less than 2 months. In those 2 months, I have had the engine replaced, the transmission replaced, about 25 different sensors or company recommended recalls replaced. It has been into the dealership at least every week and sometimes takes more than a week to fix everything that goes wrong. Props to roadside service though, they have been helpful in the 6 times I have needed to use them in 2 months. I would definitely not recommend this car, and am thinking of getting rid of mine already.
Pros: The look and the head & leg room - my hubby is 6'4' and he has plenty of leg and head room!
Cons: Lack of cargo space
Advice: You don't have to get everthing up front, you can customize later!Better then I expected for the price! It has a nice feel especially with the wide low profile tires.
Advice: Check out the competitors vehicles...I can't wait till the lease is upOf all the cars I have owned in the past 20 years, this one has been in the shop more than any of them.....HDC light comes on intermittently...usually there is a tech bulletin about the issue, have had to replace brake pads and rotors at 17,000 miles for $600 ... just not very reliable.....
