It is a Civic. It's specific to Canada. I don't know why, but I think Canada has some regulations that make it hard for certain models to exist. In 1999 and 2000, the Honda Civic SI was a DOHC(USA spec) and SOHC(Canada spec). I know because I owned a new 2000 in Black. My roommates gf(Canadian), bought a 2000 Civic SI from Canada. I have no clue why it was different, but we soon learned they were all like that.

Here in Korea, What we think of as the Liberty is labeled a Cherokee. I could track down the side moldings, but shipping would be murder...
i think thats what i was thinking of, but i knew i saw the liberty called a cherokee somewhere else...

Actually, I think the Liberty name is specific only to North America. Every Asian country I've been in, when I see a Liberty, it's called a Cherokee.

From Wikipedia:
The Jeep Liberty (KJ/KK), or Jeep Cherokee (KJ/KK) outside North America.
so im guessing they wanted people to think of it as something new here in America..

The Canadian regulations pertain to the colour temperature of the DRL's... (daytime running lights) They have to, as closely as possible, resemble the colour temperature of the northern lights in August.

Re: Italy has a Jeep Cherokee (not Grand)

I know! Doesn't it? I catch a lot of flack for it, but it's well documented I'm a huge fan of the XJ, and I think it's demise in 2001 was a huge mistake. People always talk shit and say the public didn't like it and it didn't sell, blah, blah, blah...

Then why do they command such a high re-sale? I've seen high mileage 2001 XJ's selling for more than 2001-2004 WJs.

Re: Italy has a Jeep Cherokee (not Grand)

In Australia the XJ was a "Cherokee".
The previous and current Liberty is also called a "Cherokee" here

These are ALL Cherokees to me!
