Default I miss my Jeep Liberty



Yep, this was my ride for my week long vacation in California. A 2007 Jeep Liberty 4x4 w/ 3.7L engine and 11k miles on it. I ended up putting over 1k miles on it over the week, and I came to realize something:

I didn't hate it.

Sure, it was a bit floaty over the bumps and the gearing was crappy plus it drank its fair share of gas, but I still liked it. It was comfortable, quiet and felt solid.

So, in short, I have no idea whether its Stockholm Syndrome that hasn't worn off yet, but I just may add a Liberty to the short list. Diesel powered, of course.

Seriously though....it was just small enough to slip through traffic, but big enough to not feel confining and to swallow up a decent amount of stuff. It didnt have a ton of power, but it wasn't terribly slow. Obviously I would love a Wrangler, but Jeep hasn't seen fit to equip those with a diesel yet and the GC is just too expensive.

Its nothing special, but I have a feeling thats what makes it attractive. It just does its job in an unspectacular way.

They do have alot of power. They actually have to much for a small SUV for the average driver. Combine that with SUV handling, and that can make for an easy rollover. They do still have the typical, poorly constructed Chrysler drivetrain though. Jeeps are great cars if you don't mind spending the extra cash at the pump. My Cherokee takes $71 to fill and I get about 300 miles to the tank if I am lucky .

I guess it was OK for a SUV. It didnt even really feel all that tippy when taking tight cloverleafs at 35. I mean, obviously it doesnt hold a candle to the WRX, but its not the same kind of drive.

You must have the V8, or pay $4.50 a gallon. My 258 I6 takes $50 to fill and I get 18-22MPG average, even with 109K miles on it.

I like the new Patriot....that's about it.

I've heard the CRD in the Liberty is a pretty unreliable setup.

Honestly, I think its the ticket. Decent MPG, fairly nimble, real 4WD and more importantly the ability to haul my MR2 around. Get it with leather and I'm sold.

I had one of those mother****ing pieces of **** as a rental a few weeks ago. I was stuck driving it for 2 weeks! I might have achieved 20mpg from mostly highway driving.

What a piece of crap! It was brand new, but felt like the piece of **** was going to fall apart. The handling was like riding a snow tube down a golf course.

I was just wondering why Jeep even makes this kind of junk. It might be a perfectly suitable vehicle for some people, but I feel that Jeep shouldn't bother making these kinds of cars. It is interesting to see such ridiculous sales of the four door wrangler, cause that is the kind of 4 door jeep people really want.

And its ignorant ****ers like you that don't realize that "these kinds of cars" are the ones that allow Jeep to make enough cash on the side to sell a badass Rubicon model with factory lockers and electric swaybar disconnects.
