Jeep Liberty Safety

My girlfriend is looking at getting a jeep liberty soon and my dad was concerned about that because he had one and thought he almost rolled it. are they really that unstable? and other major issues? my dad sucks at driving so my guess would be thats why he almost rolled it.

My Mom has a liberty and usually isnt the best driver and hasnt rolled hers. Its really nice though. I would say go for it, but if it has skimpy little tires, have them replaced as the liberty looks much better with bigger tires.

Yes, a lift and larger tires is your best bet, especially if you don't want to roll it .

I know a guy who rolled a corvette. Therefore corvettes are prone to rollover accidents, and no one should own one. I can't believe they passed all the safety tests.

x3 on bigger tires. One size up can make all the difference.

Like, totally. And the higher it is, the harder it is to roll.

I know the newer ones sit lower than the first years. They lowered the stock height an inch or something. Lots more facts in the KJ forum.

thanks everyone. im sure shell get one no matter what my dad says which is fine with me. i cant see them as being that unsafe. if she gets it then we will have a cammander, 06 grand cherokee, 07 grand cherokee, 99 wrangler, and a libby parked in the drive way. i think it would make for a fun picture

Had an '03 Sport for 3 years, 45,000 miles, and I never had the feeling I would roll it.

I had one before I got my XJ. It was very stable stock. I lifted mine and put on 31's and I never felt like I would roll it. If you get one of the new ones, they have electronic stability control, which makes up for a big part of being a bad driver
