I have '10 Lib with almost 60K on it. The big issues I had was a rear crank seal leaking x2, a fuel tank replaced, and a bad EGR. Minor things was the clock and the tow switch getting stuck. My gas mileage last month combined city/hwy is about 16.5. The trans sometimes has trouble finding a gear especially when you accelerate/decelerate and accelerate again.
The positives, its solid, the doors, hood even with the stock soft springs and shocks it can carry a lot of weight really well, as comparing this to my gf's 11' Honda Pilot and probably made with twice as much metal. Turning radius is tight, it can tow up to 5K with tow package and weight distribution hitch, though it does not has as much goodies as the wranglers and XJ's we have still have so good aftermarket stuff and it's growing. You want won't really need the 4wd in the snow up to about 4" the electronic traction control works great and I am saying that as I still drive with stock Good Year Wrangler SRA tires.
I enjoyed driving her last week as the roads became instantly flooded with about foot and half of water in Union and Elizabeth, NJ. As far carrying your kill; I can sit up on the hood with out it buckling and I weight a little over 200lbs. For 26K out of the door brand new you find another new SUV close to the Lib as far as comfort or space.
When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.
