2002 Jeep Liberty renegade V6 from North America
Piece of crap
Transfer case seals blew at 10000 kms yet vehicle has never been off road.
Slinger on transfer case now replaced 3 times in last 900 kms (2months)!
Disgusting fuel mileage. 11-17mpg depending on the weather.
Egg beater sound in rear ends... have had to have them replaced at 11000 kms.
Brake failure four times. Most recently ran into garage after having them inspected by dealer. Currently having proportioning valve replaced.
This is by far the most disappointing vehicle that I have ever owned. Am currently looking into buyback with Daimler Chrysler and have filed a claim with CAMVAP (Canadian Automotive Vehicle Arbitration Plan).
Have now been without vehicle for 13 days and it is still at the dealers "being repaired".
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

If you do not have ABS and your breaks do not lock up when pushed all the way, you might want to get them checked as soon as possible.
It is NOT normal for the brakes NOT to lock all 4 tires when there is no ABS and the brakes pushed as far as they go.

I am extremely disappointed with my 2002 Liberty Renegade. It is really hit or miss with Chrysler' JEEP brand. We have owned 3 other Jeep Grand Cherokees with no problems at all. While having those, we have heard so many complaints from friends about their Jeeps. Brake problems, transmission problems, rattling, etc. We still currently have a Grand Cherokee Limited 2004, and its great. Now comes my Liberty Renegade. Two weeks after I first purchased it I noticed a loud rattling coming from the rear of the car. It ended up being something lose on the rear axle. Then I complained about noises and the sound of like lose metal near the gear box, dealer said it was nothing. Then the car had difficulty turning somewhat sharply at slow speeds, LOUD screeching noises. Finally I received the recall notice and found out my bearings were totally rusted.. would probably seize soon.. after I had them replaced, wow what a difference in the drive.. Two weeks later THE DEATH OF BERT. liBERTy.. Car is in park near the lake, about to take my jet ski out of the water, its sitting there for about 3 -4 min, no one is in it.. Starts rolling back and right into the lake. Couldn't get to it fast enough.. Chrysler denies all claims, not very helpful, I just want what I lost in that junker..
