    Great car that doesn? See All Trouble Spots. The sunroof drains that run down the A and B pillars tend to clog causing water to leak into the cabin in the area of the overhead light. The front drivers side is pretty well demolished - the other car was tagged at the front door post broadside hit. Does everything from towing to off roading.

    Jeep Liberty Consumer Reviews | DARYRECIBIR.CLUB

    With President Ford's golden retriever long dead, the name "Liberty" was available for the taking. So Jeep has put it on what amounts to, in terms of relative "newness," as the most all-new vehicle in its history. Everything in this trucklet, from structure, suspension, and drivetrain to the plant in Toledo, Ohio, where it's built is either new or at least new to Jeep, and the whole is a huge advance on the Cherokee it replaces.

    Being better than the Cherokee was a pretty low hurdle to clear. After all, that pioneering SUV entered production as a model when Renault still owned AMC and, hence, Jeep and only cursorily updated throughout its production.

    By hell, by it was archaic and outclassed by the competition in terms of refinement and efficiency. Still while familiarity breeds contempt, no vehicle stays in production for 18 years if it doesn't have something compelling in its favor. And for the Cherokee that was an authentically Jeep off-road ability and everyday practicality. The question about the four-door Liberty isn't whether it's better than the Cherokee it replaces, but if it can walk the same fine line that machine did between a rugged heritage and the lives most buyers really live.

    Of course the Liberty was going to feature a grille with seven slats, but the Liberty goes further by grabbing styling cues from both the '97 Dakar and '98 Jeepster concepts. It's basically the Dakar's upright proportions wedded to the Jeepster's bug-eyed exaggeration of the Wrangler's nose. Except for fussiness on the hood between the headlight blisters and too-busy taillights, the design is remarkably attractive, contemporary and obviously Jeep.

    It's not just another SUV box -- it's its own unique box with really big fender bulges, and scant front and rear overhangs. Of the exterior details, among the nicest are the oversize door handles and fluted side-view mirrors.

    While the headlights appear to be round from many angles, they are in fact slightly ovoid compound units. Base Liberty "Sport" models get fender flares and trim in black plastic, while the upmarket Liberty Limited which also happens to be pretty much the definition of parole is finished monochromatically.

    Under the skin rests Jeep's third generation of "uniframe" vehicles following the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. Uniframe essentially means a pretty beefy unibody with elements of a traditional ladder frame welded into the structure. What results is the stiffest structure of any Jeep Grand Cherokee included and a solid platform upon which to mount the suspension. The rear suspension is, no surprise, a solid axle on three links and coil springs. Up front is what's really different -- Jeep's first honest independent front suspension the swing axles offered on early Wagoneers in the Sixties don't count.

    Built with thick cast-iron A-arms and coil springs over gas-charged shocks, the system looks rugged enough to withstand a direct artillery hit and yet offers a significant gain in on-road suppleness and responsiveness. In light off-roading it seems effective, but it will take the extreme antics of dedicated Jeep fanatics to determine if ultimate off-road prowess has been compromised.

    That suspension is controlled by a new rack-and-pinion steering box again a Jeep first that is both precise and demanding of much more effort than the typical over-boosted Jeep system.
