My father owns a liberty and he’s owned it for years. Its needed minimal repairs over the years and still runs great! He said that the insurance isn’t bad at all and it is an older model, he looked into upgrading to other vehicles and the insurance is much higher! He does put a decent amount of gas into it but that is because he is driving around ALL of the time! He said it is “average” on gas.

Hi, I own a one. I wasn’t to happy about getting it at first but I actually love it now. I need 4×4 and it’s small but still big if that makes any sense. It handles well in the snow which is good for me. I would say to fill it up is about 50-60$ depending on the week. My insuranse is about 80$ for full coverage and extras. I like owning it over all ive been happy with it.

@FutureMrsB123:  I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty Limited.  I bought it used in ’06.  It’s been a super reliable car.  I’ve had to get things repaired (like all cars need after 10+ years), but it still runs really, really well.  I get about 16 miles/gal (horrible) and my insurance is around $45/month (liability only).  The newer Libertys might have better gas milage.

My Jeep Liberty just kept breaking and breaking after it hit the 10 year mark!  We recently sold it because I didn’t want to keep putting more money into it.  Insurance was fine (same as for my Mazda sedan if I remember correctly), and gas mileage was fair.  I loved that car!  Wish it lasted longer.

@FutureMrsB123:  I drove one as a rental when my then Ford Escape was in for repairs. I hated it.  I hated the loose steering, the seats, the poor handling and visibility.

They may have made improvements since then or your opinion could be quite different than my own,  but you may want to test drive competing cars before settling on the Liberty.

@FutureMrsB123:  My sister has one (probably a 2011 or 2012) and they have had SO many problems with it. Luckily, everything has been covered by the warranty so far, but they’re sick of dealing with all of its issues. They’ve had issues with the transmission, the axles, etc. It’s a mess.
