ChiGirl you sound like me... as I was so excited about my 2004 Liberty - esp. when I took it off-roading - and now with the 2008 Liberty - it's just a great experience on road and off. I do enjoy the extras and I'm comfortable during my commute. I know what you mean about the Jeep comradarie-- it's nice to share this- on and off road.
I don't hesitate when I take it off road. I would be with a Lexus (don't want to scratch) or a Saturn (could it meet the challenge), etc. With the Jeep I don't hesitate in any conditions. I know how to use the controls now (and there are many to choose from) and so I 'dive right in'...and it does so well (it's heavy and it's narrow which works well on the trails).
My husband cracks up because he's the one who gets the new cars and details them constantly-- now I find I'm doing the same thing. I have the Brick Red color/Limited Edition with leather seats...very pleased. I sometimes open the garage door just to look at it-- that's how excited I am about it. It's fun.
I hope you found something out there that you can enjoy just as much.

We sound so alike! I know this is the vehicle I want. We tried to make a deal on Saturday (dealers are closed in Texas on Sundays), but they wouldn't give me anywhere near what I needed for my trade. Plus, there were no lease incentives on the Liberty, so we just couldn't quite get to the payment I want. I am a few months from the end of the lease on my Camry, so I will wait patiently until then, turn it in, then promptly go try again to negotiate a deal on the Liberty.
I drove the Saturn....it was nice but boring and seemed tight on the inside in terms of space, and I also didn't like the fake wood trim. For the money, LIberty has all the room and technology/toys I want, as well as a really impressive look from the outside. I will wait.....and it will be mine!
Thanks for sharing...I have a picture of it on my cell phone and will keep it until I can have the real thing. I'm sure I'll eventually be just staring at it every day in my garage, but until then, just admiring the ones I see, and being green with envy!
If you have any other notes of interest regarding your Liberty as you continue to drive it, let me know!

Congrats on your new purchase! You are the first person I can find who has the new Jeep w/ the new roof. So after experiencing the skyslider for a while- what do you think? Is it quiet? Can you put a roof rack system over it?
It sounds like it's really cool.
I have the Limited with a sunroof-- and I enjoy the drive in this Jeep so much! It's a joy to drive. Good luck and keep us posted as to how you are making out with the skyslider

I love my new Jeep except....
The day the odometer rolled 60 miles it rained all day. I was a work and the car just sat in the parking lot. When I left to go home I heard this strange clicking sound. When I stopped to investigate I found that water was dripping in the back storage area from the roof, actually under the plastic header on the roof, that has the back light and back up warning.
I immediately took it in and said fix this or I am not keepping this car (my mistake I should have told them to take it back, but I LOVE this car). They kept it for 5 days. Resealed the roof rails and anntenna, replaced the gasket, and eventually built up some of the welds around the hinges. This seemed to work. Lots of car washes no problem, but no rain and not sitting very long wet.
I now have 2500 miles on the car. Still LOVE it...but. It rained last night, the car sat in the rain, and when I started to drive to work the same problem. The car is at the dealer now, who knows if they will be able to track this down.
I am seriously worried that I have paid 32k for a car I can't drive in the rain. Anyone else out this have a similar story?

Dec 13, 2007 (8:45 am)
I am considring a 2008 Jeep Liberty when my 2005 Jeep GC lease expires, for better gas mileage, so this morning when I took the GC in for 24,000 mile service the dealer sales guy at Pollard Motors in Boulder, Co let me drive a 2008 Jeep Liberty Sport home while mine is having service.
The new Liberty drives, rides and handles like 90-95% of a Grand Cheorkee. I fact, as I was taling to the sale guy on the drive home (he dropped mme off so couldn't "keep the Jeep") I amlost forgot that I wasn'tt driving the GC! Wow!
PLus the room in the front and the overview view outisde seems as large as the GC. The 3.7 V6 has been tagged as "underpowerd" but I fetl none of that.
Go get one today!

Good news they fixed the leak. I am crossing my fingers and waiting for the next rainstorm.

Incentives are the reason why I got the JGC instead of the Liberty....I had driven and fallen in love with the Liberty, but the dealers just wouldn't budge on the price, and Chrysler has only a $500 rebate and no lease incentives on it. With the $4500 in incentives (returning Chrysler customer) and a decent leasing interest rate (plus some hefty negotiating as well), I was actually able to get a 2008 2WD Overland for a much cheaper monthly payment than the loaded Liberty Limited I had test driven. Granted, the gas mileage isn't as good (I got the Hemi), but my payment is about $100 less per month than I was able to negotiate on the Liberty. That will buy me some gas, and I'm actually happy to have the extra space as well.
I agree that the Liberty is awesome, but I'm happy to have "settled" for the Grand Cherokee. For me, the deal was just too good to pass up.
Good luck--I'm sure you'll be happy no matter what you choose!
