    I've made the decision to try and get myself out of debt, so i'm gonna be selling my current car a 2002 WRX, and im looking for a new one. I'm looking for something more comfortable and easier to get in/out of, i drive a lot with school/work, and it gets to be a pain wedgin myself in and out of a compact, i'm 6'5 about 250lbs. I'm lookin to spend around 6k

    I came across this 02 jeep liberty http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.j...oors=&transmission=&max_price=6000&cardist=40

    I don't know a whole lot about Jeeps, as far as reliability and things like that, I was just trying to find out if they are good vehicles, or will I just be expecting a bunch of problems buying one with over 100kmi :dunno:

    Buy an 01 Cherokee instead. The 4.0L will be much more reliable.

    My dad's 03 GC is very nice. Probably a bit more comfortable than a Libby or a Cherokee for someone your size.

    The Libby has a shitty interior as well, and I'm 5'9 190lbs and it makes me feel like a fat kid when I sit in one.

    Libertys are heavy and shitty on gas. Unless you can find a CRD they're pointless. Liberty CRD sightings are up there with Elvis in both frequency and veritability.
