How good of a vehicle is a 2005 Jeep Liberty?

I’m in the market for a new-used vehicle and have been looking at this 2005 Jeep Liberty 4×4 . It has the 3.7l 6cylinder engine, with automatic trans. It only has 60,000 miles. The price is right, but I’m concerned with reliability, and fuel mileage. The reviews I have found on the net have been all over the place. Any Liberty owners, mechanics,etc. want to give your opinion?

    I have a 2005 liberty and I love it,it gets between 16-21 mpg,mine is an automatic and is very reliable,The rear seats fold down for extra room when needed.The engine is very powerful and runs like a top.Plenty of leg room in the front.The 4wd is a big plus in the snow or mud,it works very well,I would recommend it…

    They are fine until they break and then they are expensive to fix

    not a good choice for MPG or power. the interior is plain. other than that it’s a typical go anywhere jeep
