You're gettin' soft Greg. You always used to refer to it as your "POS Jeep".

 

Trying to be "fair and balanced"....

Jeeps do not make good patterning boards. Ford Rangers are much better.😇

I have an '06. It really gets a workout. Towing, 4 wheeling over rocky 2-tracks, 4 wheeling snow in the salt belt, even stop-n-go city driving. It's a serious 4WD, kinda truck-like in build and ride. I have a rare manual transmission, only available on Wranglers now, and it's still fun to drive. Compared to something like a Rav4, there is no comparison. It's a Jeep,  has high ground clearance, skid plates (more than a few times I've bounced off a boulder), tight turning radius, great driver visibility, 16" wheels and a full size spare mounted easy to get at on the rear gate. The body is rust free despite the salt. It tows a loaded double enclosed snowmobile trailer at 70 mph for hours.

I haven't had window or heater problems, but like most 14 year old vehicles plenty of other stuff to go wrong. I have dumped some money lately into the drive train, but as i said it gets a workout. Parts my mechanic says are "worn out". But I haven't had a car payment in 6 years so I'm keeping it going for now.

 

Bottom line they are plentiful and cheap on the used market. Parts and service readily available. I wouldn't get one for a daily driver but for a knock-around sportsman's vehicle they are hard to beat.

2011 liberty here, and a long time jeep owner of many models. This on has 150k on so far and has been the most reliable to date of any jeeps-or any other vehicles i have owned. Aside of normal mait items like brk pads, the only out of ordinary items had to replace are:

a) water pump seal weeped at 100k

b) transmission oil pan rusty but not leaking 120k

Thats it, never a prob with heater core.

Good luck!
