2003 Jeep Liberty Renegade 3.7L V6 Gasoline from North America
Excellent buy for the money, but expect problems over the long term
When I bought the truck the front rotors were warped, had them turned by the dealer and 6 months later, they are warped again.
When starting from a stop or going up hill, I get a noise that sounds like something grinding or rubbing.
Generally, I like the vehicle, but I don't like Jeep's service, sales, or support.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Warped rotors. Sorry friend, but that condition is a result of ones driving. Rotors warp when they've gotten too hot, too many times. What's worse it's not especially easy to do. My guess is you ride your brakes or something. Perhaps when driving down the road, you may inadvertently and lightly rest your left foot on brake. This would cause the brakes to get extremely hot. The vehicle however, would still roll.
Did you buy your liberty new or used. Trust me. A brand new vehicle isn't going to have warped brakes. I don't even think an overzealous, pimple-faced lot attendant at the dealership could warp a set of brakes if he tried.
Look, I'm not trying to insult your driving skills or lack there of. I just have a lot of seat time in these Liberty's and truly know their strengths and weaknesses. Jeep Liberty's have strong brakes. I've spent many a hour modifying these Liberty's. I 've become a virtual expert on them and I can easily identify a person who should probably leave the driving to someone else. A friend or peer perhaps.
In other words, sit back, relax and enjoy your Jeep Liberty... from the passenger seat.
Good luck, Peter S.
