She's finally broken in -- just under 1,000 miles (only takes 300 miles to brake them in now), but drives like a dream. I've read some threads about the lack of handling- and was surprised. It's drive is smooth and responsive- not tight (not a sports car). It's almost like a truck- but very comfortable and smooth/quiet. Very different than my former 2004 Liberty. This one I feel wouldn't off road - but it's so comfortable to drive. I have the Limited ed. w/ leather-- so the seats are firm and comfy. I previously had cloth- and was very happy with them in the 2004 model. But now I like the 6 adjustments in the driver's seat. The gas is similar to the previous Liberty models...not seeing too much of a difference there at all. Tends to use more in 4wd as well- but that's OK. I like the capability of this vehicle and the simple perks- remote start, sound system and quiet ride. Still very pleased

hey there, this is my first jeep, and I love it. i have a question, I notice when i shift in drive or reverse, there is a little buzzing or ticking noise right when it shifts, its very quiet , but i was wondering if it is normal. it drives great, pulls me up to speed , and shifts great, but i have never noticed that on other cars. thanks for any input.....

My husband and I ordered one with the skyslider from a dealer over a month ago. Last night they called to tell us that there might be a longer than expected delay... Until Jan/Feb, thats 4 to 5 months after we ordered it. The biggest reason we wanted the 08 liberty is because of the skyslider and now we'll have to wait almost half a year to get it. Hopefully the issues get resolved and we get ours soon or we might resort to a different vehicle.
I did a search on cars.com, with an unlimited distance and none came up with the skyslider.
#54 of 121 After Liberty, what's next?
Nov 08, 2007 (12:47 pm)
I drive a 2003 Liberty Limited which I really like. But circumstances are forcing me to look for another car...I need more interior storage but also really want better gas mileage. I'd like to keep the 4WD option and would like to stick with a V6...but also feel that 30 mpg should be closer at hand than the approx. 18 my Liberty is giving me.
Have I just talked myself OUT of anything out there? I wonder if there's a good vehicle that can give me all these things. I'm clearly just starting the research...

Did you figure out why this is happening yet? I checked mine and don't have this issue. Check all of your settings (4wd is very easy to select, etc./take dealer for test ride when you go in for your first service), etc.

no I never did, but I have not really had the issue anymore, maybe it was just something with breaking in. I love it so far, its been great. Has anyone bought the lifetime extended bumper to bumper warantee , and if you did, where did u buy it at.

I just took delivery of my new 2008 Liberty with the sky-slider roof. I have driven jeeps since 1978. I currently own a 2002 Liberty and by far this new 2008 is one of the best Jeep has made in a while. It is a little more "top-heavy" than my 2002 but once you get used to that it is a joy to drive. The sky-slider roof is AWESOME !!! This jeep is pure fun and if you are waiting to get one it is worth the wait.
#59 of 121 Jeeps are BLAND
Nov 16, 2007 (7:41 am)
I don't want to drive a CASKET!! That is what all Jeep interiors look like, CASKETS!
At least people in caskets don't get to complain!
What is with all car manufacturers? Do they think we are all Sheep? (yes)
Look at the interior of the new Liberty. You get two (2) color choices GRAY and BEIGE! WOW! What a choice.
How bland can you get.
I like the new Liberty but told my Jeep dealer I would not buy any new Jeep or any other car until I got some color in it!
Look at Toyota, heck you can only get VERY BLAND colors there.
I use to get any (and I mean any) color I wanted in the interior or exterior of the Cads. I bought. I could get red, yellow, blue, green, white, orange, black, light blue, etc. That is both the Exterior and Interior. No more today.
Again, the new cars have nothing but CASKET interiors all the way. I'm not dead yet and I'll not let the auto manufactures think I am dead or a Sheep!
At least my 1991 Cherokee has a Maroon interior and I'm going to drive it until Jeep starts putting out some real colors in their interiors!
