2008 Jeep Liberty review

With its redesign of the Liberty, Jeep has taken what was one of the first cute-utes on the market and turned it into a macho off-roader. That transformation may have been well executed, but it leaves the Liberty in a strange place in Jeep's lineup. True offroad enthusiasts can get a Wrangler, while those looking for a smaller city ride can get a Patriot or Compass. Because of its minute differences in size and capability compared to other Jeeps, the Liberty is left the tiniest of voids to fill. After a week driving the new model, I think there's still plenty of room for improvement.
