"I bought this as my first car at 17. It was a great car throughout my time with it (4 years) I just recently sold it to upgrade to a Grand Cherokee, but up till the day I returned it, I loved every mile. It rose more comfortable then a wrangler, but still a jeep feel. Great look and feel inside and out. Never had any engine or other mechanical issues or recalls. I can honestly say after 4 years of 40,000 Miles, I believe it would've lasted at least 30000-40000 Miles more, so if you are looking at a 2011 or 2012 Jeep Liberty, just do it! Very reliable car. I will also add, I was in 2 accidents in this car the first I rear ended someone, the second someone rear ended me, and the car only had scratches. The frame and body of this car is solid. "
