So the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released the results of its vehicle tests.
I own a 2004 Jeep Liberty 4X4 which is rated as a SUV and it’s come up with the following ratings: (all scores out of 5)
+ Frontal Impact Rating – 5 for driver and 4 for passenger
+ Side Impact Rating – 5 for the front seat and 5 for the rear
+ Rollover Resistance Rating – 3
Everyone knows that SUVs are prone to rollover because of the high center of gravity so a 3 isn’t so bad.
Love the Jeep. The only issues I’ve had is that the gas mileage could be better (heavy vehicle) and transmission whine at high speed. Other than that, it’s been great.
