Jeep Liberty
rip cars 2012 jeep liberty

Introduced in 2001 as a replacement for the Jeep Cherokee, the Liberty expired in August when the Toledo plant where it was built was shut down to retool for a new Fiat-based Jeep. Sales reached as high as 171,212 in Liberty's first full year on the market but had fallen to a quarter of that in recent years in the face of competition from more modern crossovers. The Liberty was regularly roasted by Consumer Reports, which called "noisy, cramped, and outdated," and Chrysler decided to replace it rather than fix it.
