Safety

The Liberty comes standard with side curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats, but there isn't the added protection of side-impact airbags for the front seats. Stability control is also standard throughout the lineup, as is a rollover sensor.

A tire pressure monitoring system is standard, and I can attest that it works perfectly. I got a flat tire during my time with the Liberty that didn't blow out immediately, but lost air slowly over a period of time. The monitor beeped when the front right tire dropped below 30 psi, and I watched the number drop all the way to 19 psi before I got to a gas station to fill it up. After a few more miles it dipped again. After that, I pulled off the road and called roadside assistance to put on the full-size spare tire, which was nice to have onhand.

As of publication, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not crash tested the Liberty.
