Minor Cons, mostly a great vehicle by Brandon, Fort Collins, CO on 05/18/2009. Trim: 2008 Jeep Liberty Limited 4X4, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Off road capabilities are second only to the Wrangler, but it has comfort and luxury like a Cherokee. Good acceleration when you need it from the 3.7 L. I had a trip to Illinois this Christmas and the weather was straight out of a WeatherChannel Storm Stories. Snow, blizzards, rain, fog, ice, you name it. I barely hesitated at any moment, even when plowing through 4 foot snow drifts. In fact, when the weather gets bad, I get excited about the prospect of driving. The Electronic Stability Control rights the vehicle and can get you out of bad situations.
Cons: Legroom in the front is minimal, a bigger guy would have some issues. Not being able to fully turn off the Electronic Stability Control hinders the fun factor sometimes, but I guess I can understand why. You can still get the jeep sideways though, it just takes a little more. Make sure you tightly screw on that gas cap because the check engine light will come on every time. And the gas mileage is an issue, but hopefully the cool air intake I am installing will help that. Sometimes when the snow is thick and you brake hard, the entire sheet of snow from the roof barrels down over the windshield, that can be dangerous.
Overall review: Great vehicle all around. I wish I had spent the extra money to get the ultimate sunroof. I didn't care this winter when i bought it but now that the weather is nice, it would be a great option. I think if I had this sunroof, I would not miss my old Wrangler at all.

Poor Choice by littleboysmum on 04/27/2011. Trim: 2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4X4, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The engine is reliable, handling is great.
Cons: Compared to my old body-style 2002, the interior looks cheap. It is very noisy! Gas mileage does not come close to specs.
Overall review: Selling and buying a subaru!

Underwhelming by TS on 12/09/2007. Trim: 2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great off-road handling
Cons: Everything else. Coarse engine, dated transmission, cheap interior, uncomfortable seats, badly designed tailgate. Unstable at freeway speeds.
Overall review: Only buy this if you live in a place which has no roads (in which case this is probably the best choice)

Could Of Ben Great by Kingman, AZ on 04/27/2013. Trim: 2008 Jeep Liberty Sport 4X4, Owned 5 years.
Pros: The consept of the vehickle was good.
Cons: It would have been good if they could have made the electronics to function as it was desighned. The idea that electricaly controling an off road vehickle functions is a bit unrealistic.
Overall review: Good idea, Bad results

Very Dissapointing Jeep by Mike from New Jersey on 07/17/2011. Trim: 2008 Jeep Liberty Limited 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It has an aggressive look, reminiscent of the classic Jeep Cherokee.
Cons: This vehicle has too many cons. The greatest of which being that it is very unreliable. I have owned it for less than three monhs and it has been to dealer six times. Some of the issues with the vehicle can not be fixed by the dealer, and was even told by the service rep that it is not a very well built vehicle.
Overall review: I have owned a "Certified" 2008 Jeep Liberty Limited for nearly three months and I think its safe to say that it is one of the worst vehicles that I have ever owned. In the almost three months that I have owned it I have had to take it back to the dealer for about ten different problems, some of them recurring. I called and explained my situation to Chrysler Customer Assurance and was told that there was nothing they can do. I would just have to keep taking it back to the dealer or take it to another dealer, which I would then have to pay for.
