Jeep Liberty CRD
 
Greetings,

I have a line on an 05 with 104k. Mileage service has not been done.

Thoughts?

My initial thought is why doesnt Victorinox make the Spartan line with a screwdriver instead of an awl.

First question that comes to mind: Why would anyone buy a Chrysler product with 100,000 miles on it?

If
 
If you can get it cheap enough, why not?

JamesG 01-03-2013 03:41 PM

You can think of it as a down payment...

Junk, find a WK Grand Cherokee with the 3.0 if you must have a Diesel it's an actual Mercedes engine used in the E-Class. The Liberty is some Italian piece of shit that has many documented problems, plus you'll have to drive around in a Liberty.

Your retarded....

In January 2011, VM Motori launched its brand new engine 3.0L V6. With 241 CV and 550 Nm (410 lbft) the A630 is among the best diesel engines in its class. As result of the collaboration with Fiat Powertrain Technologies the engine features the Multijet2 technology for improved performance, fuel economy and NVH. The first applications of the 3.0L V6 are the 2011MY Grand Cherokee and the 2012MY Lancia Thema.

It is cheap enough at 10.3k. I'd start with a Green Diesel Engineering chip, then the ECU mod for the transmission. When the tires wear out I'd probably lift it 2.5"

At the end of the day I'd have a 30 + mpg ski (4x4) car with leather (heated) seats, sunroof, kicking stereo and 7,000 lb towing for under 14k.

No way. They're shit and the mileage isnt great. They seem to be pretty unreliable. Check the forums

Wolfgang55 01-03-2013 05:10 PM

Look for a Sprinter

I have the GDE tune and only get 20mpg on the best days...the lift, 32" tires, heavy front bumper and winch may not help?
The internet is full of liars about fuel economy, the RV forums are the worst for them. Towing 7k is not advisable with the short wheelbase, I had a 4500lb camper and had to add Air Lift to the rear to help with towing. 14K is a bundle for a CRD with over 100k on it.
