2002 Jeep Liberty Sport 2.4 from North America
I loved a Lemon
Spark plug "fouled" at 5200 miles.
Spark plug replaced the next day.
Mystery check engine light issue diagnosed as fuel injector problem evolved into engine valve problem and then into cylinder problem, and finally into cracked engine block at 8500 miles, with no overheating incidents.
I loved this Jeep at first, but it has spent more nights than I would care to count in the garage.
The look and handling of the vehicle have been outstanding.
Until things under the hood started failing, I felt very safe in my Liberty Sport.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I felt the same about my Liberty, until I met the 'service' department from Jeep.
I will trade it in as soon as BMW brings it's X3 on the market.

My 2002 Jeep Liberty is presently in the shop and has been for several weeks. The service department doesn't know what's wrong with it. Without warning I started my Jeep and it was idling rough and stalled and the check engine light came on and started flashing. The service department thought it was a bad spark plug and fuel injector, but replacing the parts has not fixed the problem.
