The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Jeep Liberty is a very capable SUV, but one that might not be right for most everyday drivers. The 2008 Honda CR-V doesn't have hip style or performance on tap, but it has the security, utility, and frugality that many sensible moms want.
