2010 Jeep Liberty Renegade

The Liberty is floaty on the highway yet also has a very bouncy ride over bumps. This SUV seems to prefer the slower speeds of country roads -- until the road curves, that is. The Liberty is also far from quick. And a four-speed automatic? Welcome to 1991, Jeep Liberty!

Still, the giant canvas sunroof does wonders to improve the overall experience of the Liberty. The interior definitely fits the rugged theme, and assembly quality seems to be quite good. Personally, I'd never choose a Liberty over a four-door Wrangler, but if someone wanted more cargo space and a slightly more refined driving experience for about the same money as a Wrangler Unlimited, the Liberty could be a justifiable purchase.

I had an 03 Liberty, and I loved everything about it EXCEPT the mileage. Frakkin terrible. If Fiat can get Jeep up into the 30s+ I'll buy another jeep. But for now, I have to drive my Honda and keep dreaming of fuel efficient Jeeps.
It seems to me that the fuel mileage on this vehicle is terrible. My wife's 04 GC with the 4.7 V8 gets 20.4 on the highway and around 14 in town with more room and comfort. I hope future Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge products get the benefit of all the good things Fiat has to offer.Mercedes sure raped them and scrapped them in a hurry. Maybe some entity will return the favor to MB sometime in the near future.
