Pros: Outer body style and appearance.
Cons: Maybe a few things inside could be less plasticy looking but not a big issue for me.
Advice: In todays market negotiate for a good deal, you should get one for considerably less than sticker as all American made cars arehorribly over pricedWell, first off it is a jeep so it is not going to drive like a luxury car. But that being said, it is remarkably comfortable even on longer rides, handles quite well and while at first I was wondering about room, it is actually quite roomy. Mileage wise is only average but with only an 8 mile commute to work not a big deal. Good options and a very very big improvment on the 2007 and earlier Liberties. I like the fact it is more retro and harkens back more to the boxy older Cherokees of the 80s and 90s.
Pros: The styling inside and out retain the unique DNA of Jeeps through history except now High Tech
Cons: Fairly stiff suspension on rough roads bumb bump..heck its a Jeep after all.
Advice: For a high degree of American made, splashed with a hint of German Engineering and subtle retro styling get it. Just get the best deal you can and go for it.I have had my 2008 Liberty Limited (nicely appointed) for about 4000 miles now, in Alaska. I don't care for the looks of the 2007 models however the changes they made for the 2008 have given the Liberty all the right proportions and the looks just keep growing on me every day more and more. No it isn't a hot rod and it gets only decent gas mileage still but the way it handled the ice and snow during the Alaska winter was fantastic and provided a very safe feel. My other rig is a suburban. You could almost live in with it's size but the smaller Jeep is fun to drive. The biggest selling point besides looks and function is however THE LIFETIME WARRANTY !!! Nuff said !!! Imagine passing your Jeep down to your kids.
