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 you can get it cheap enough, why not?

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

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.

All the negatives of a diesel without most of the benefits, completely ignoring the fact that the Liberty itself is a complete pile of shit, poorly put together. Pass.

They should have never gotten rid of the XJ.
