2011 Liberty Jet Limited

Hi all.

Thinking to purchase 2011 Liberty Jet Limited and I have couple questions.
What is your average MPG?
also I'm not sure what options to choose:
Power Sunroof or Sky Slider?
I like Sky slider but I don't know how it will behave in a couple of years or months, if it can leak or broke somehow, so is there lots of trouble whit Sky Slider?

There is Exterior Appearance Group by Mopar - whats this?, how it loos like?

Thank you.

I only have 1,700 miles on my 2011. Best Hiway mpg 21, average city 15.5 pretty much as the window sticker claims.
I have the power sun roof. Didn't really want any sun roof or slider, but the Liberty I found had all the other options I wanted, the power sunroof was there on the KK so I kind of had to take it.
I have read post of owners complaining of leaks with the slider roofs.
I have yet to open the sun roof so far. Sun roofs and Texas sun are not a great combination in the summer.

Thanks Jonrjen, I was hoping a little bit better mpg results
Probably I will take regular sun roof
Thanks

Sorry to day the MPG just don't get much better with time. It has a lot to do with the old school 4 speed automatic transmission. Down side is the mpg suffers due to limited gearing selection, tends to make for a little more drive train noise. Up side is, not a lot of gear hunting by the transmission. When the 4-speed down shifts it is quick, firm and to the point acceleration.
As for the mpg, I'm please with it, my 2006 F-250 has a 6-speed manual transmission backing up to a V-10 engine. On a good day, with a tail wind, going down hill I may get 11 mpg. Average is closer to 9.25 mpg. Makes the Liberty look pretty good. Of course on the other hand, our motorhome makes the F-250 look good...

Simple explaination would be, it is a four wheel drive system that transfers the proper power to the wheel that would provide the most traction in slippery conditions. It also allows you to drive in 4 wheel drive full time without causing the drive line to buck it self, even in dry hard surface driving conditions.

It is not something that could be added after the original purchase of a Jeep. At least for for any resonable amount of money.

Is your Liberty a 4x4 or 2 wheel drive?
