First time Jeep owner here and also my first new car purchase.
I'm currently driving a 2012 RWD 4dr Sport model. Basically this car right here (CLICK LINK HERE).
I've never owned a new car and I've never owned a Jeep. So far I absolutely love my car.
Can you guys offer insight on things like:
What engine issues to watch out for.
What good practices to have when maintaining the engine
Any websites or books to learn more about Jeep care and upkeep
Any friendly advice on the car
Since this car is my baby, I want to make sure I am doing everything to keep it in good shape. If it's a story about what to watch out for, or just a tale about how good the car is, I would love you to post it here and share any tips, advice, stories, or heads up on anything when it comes to owning a Jeep Liberty.
Just keep the maintenance up on everything
spark plugs ( common copper cores) every 30,000 or so
If your's is two wheeler then transmission flushed ( at the dealer) on schedule
keep the oil changed etc
Read the manual
OH and some will get on you for calling it a "car"

In the broad sense of the word, it is indeed a car. Carrying the Jeep nameplate makes it much more than a mere car. Enjoy your new ride. Bank some money now for the future. If you become a regular on the forum you will empty that bank, and the future will come a lot quicker than you think.
As others have stated, keep up with the routine maintenance, wash frequently, and don't fret. Enjoy it.

Thanks for the information guys. I didn't know what Plasti-Dip was until you guys mentioned it. It seems to be a product that allows you to apply a rubber coating to surfaces on your car. However, I'm not sure exactly where I would apply this. I imagine the best place to put it would be on the trimming of the car?
