headlights appear weak..added light bar, will change factory tires for more off road traction. "blind" spots in rear view mirrors.Added small concave mirrors to original mirrors
In review, I got what I was looking for at a price I felt acceptable. It's roadworthy on or off road for what I need...economy is about what I might expect for this vehicle. It's my 4th Jeep, so I like them for what they are, and what they give me. Security on the highway and off, strength and dependability with a minimum of fuss, and still look good doing all of it. Fit and finish is good, I don't mind plastic instead of leather trim. When I bought this one I walked into the dealership with the intention of buying a "basic" Jeep that would last as long as my other 3, all passing the 200,000 mile mark. I expect some worn out parts over the years, but this vehicle appears as well made and up to par as the others. Is it pretty? Not exactly! But I am comfortable with the ownership. It is what it is, a utility vehicle that accomplishes what it needs to do. And I think that is part of the Jeep 'mystique'. The owners match themselves to the vehicle carefully or find they are sadly mismatched. My Liberty is neither a racy Jaguar or a Ford 350 diesel truck. It would look out of place at the opera house; but so do I. LOL! But at the beach, or the boatyard or the campground or the worksite it's convenient, sturdy and happy to be there.
