Jeeps seem to be the most popular toads, second are Honda CRV's. Check manual to see if the Liberty can be flat towed. We have Blue Ox Aladin tow setup for our CRV. Works great

Got a 2012 Jeep Liberty with a sterling All Terrain tow bar and a invisiBrake. I had Camping World install everything it took them a day but well worth it. Takes about ten minutes to hook up or un hook. Push button to disengage transmission and hook up the tow bar up. Two pins and plug the wires in and go. Love it so simple. Do not forget to put on your emergency brake when you un hooking seen a guy that forgot to do that and it rolled down the hill and went into a pond not a happy camper. I have a sticky note that I put on the dash to remind me.

The problem with towing any car is that if it's automatic, you will burn up the tranny since the wheels will be turning the tranny from the wrong end. If it's auto and front wheel drive, you'd have to lift the front end. If it's auto and rear wheel drive you'd have to disconnect the driveshaft or lift the rear end. If it's auto and all time all wheel drive, you'd have to lift the entire car. If it's auto and 4x4, you can put the transfer case in neutral and tow it. If it's manual/standard, you can tow it.

Now, my wife's Jeep (2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4) it's actually AWD. It doesn't have a transfer case that allows you to choose Low/Neutral/High 4x4. Now, my truck (2011 Ram 1500 LH 4x4) has a transfer case with different gears. I just hit the neutral button and it disconnects the wheels from the tranny so it can be towed.
