2005 Jeep Liberty Sport 3.7 V6 from North America
First and last FWD SUV, which gets us where we need to go
Brakes rubbed before we got off the dealer lot. Replaced pads twice, and they still rub when cold.
Ball joint recall - replaced, but never was an issue.
Rear window regulators, BOTH went bad. 1st one under warranty. 2nd one cost $375 to replace. Both have since gone bad AGAIN, but we just glued the windows shut.
Gas mileage pig, but at over 4000 pounds empty, what do you expect?
My wife won this car (cost us tax and plates) and since we are a one car family, she does not drive, we got rid of my eight year old T-bird.
We just reached 5 years of ownership. It is a very hard ride for us. Lots of speed bumps in parking lots here, and it doesn't like them.
The gas mileage sucks.
The window regulator issue is just dumb. If they break that easily, Mopar should have replaced them with better parts.
I read about the seats staining easily, so we avoided eating in it. No kids, so that is not an issue.
Overall it's reliable transportation, and even though we have the 4 wheel drive and towing package, we've never been off road to try it out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The Jeep Liberty is not FWD (which by the way stands for front wheel drive).

I'm not sure where you're getting your information from, but the Liberty is in fact FWD.

I was incorrect on that last comment. The Liberty is not FWD, I was mistaken.

Complaining about a recalled balljoint that never gave you a problem... seems pointless. And they're Rear Wheel Drive (when not 4x4).
