Top Ten Compact Family SUVs (Intro and Last Place)

Over the course of the last year I have driven more than my fair share of SUVs as part of my continuing series of “Weeklong Road Test” car reviews. This may not be as glamorous as testing an expensive luxury sport coupe but in this economy not many people need help with that kind of new car purchase. Sensible, affordable, efficient and relatively compact SUVs are the vehicles that American families actually need.

Last Place: 2011 Jeep Liberty
In this test there is no SUV that can compare with the Liberty off-road. But how often, if ever, do most people go off road? Because when the Liberty is on the tarmac is a bigger disaster than Paris Hilton’s attempt at a singing career. Yes, she attempted one.

The 2011 Jeep Liberty should come with a warning sticker that reads, “Attempts to corner at normal speeds may result in vomiting, nausea, sweaty palms and/or vehicle rollover.” Body roll is epic and the nautical feeling you get from behind the wheel is not helped by slowly geared steering. The Liberty responds with all the speed and precision of the Titanic. To read more click here.
