I had a similar experience going from my Liberty to a Honda CR-V rental. The Honda felt like a tin can, and I could not wait to get out of it and back into my Liberty.

Well written!! You'll have an experience some day... Every jeep owner does... where your Jeep will save the day... You'll drive whenever and wherever you want! Through hood deep snow, down mud roads in the rain, pull lesser 4x4s out of the snow in... 2 wheel drive! Sometimes the adventure finds you!

I am again writing a follow-up to the original review on the '09 Liberty.
The miles are now just shy of 50,000, and there have still been no mechanical issues with it - it has not needed a single repair beyond normal maintenance.
The original Goodyear tires were just replaced, and the Firestone shop messed up one of the TPMS sensors, but repaired it, no fault of the vehicle.
Everything inside and out on the Liberty still works as it should, and it still looks great after 4 years of harsh Erie, PA winters.
Maybe we got the ONLY good Liberty of the bunch, but we just haven't experienced any noteworthy issues on ours, and I can't see how people are saying the Liberty model is an unreliable piece of junk. We don't baby this vehicle either, we just use and maintain it normally.
In fact we have been so pleased with it, we traded our older 2000 Jeep Cherokee in on a '13 Wrangler model, which after 2800 miles, it has no initial defects.

Update to the original survey on the '09 Liberty: It is nearing 100k miles, and needed its first major set of repairs. This was a front engine oil seal, a front half shaft, and a new exhaust system. All of this cost $1200.00. But that is the most spent on this vehicle in nine years outside of regular wear items being a set of tires, brake pads, and a battery. There is still not a spot of rust on the body, despite being driven on heavily salted roads in the winter. It still runs and drives great.
