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.
