2005 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
Today's diesels are nothing like yesteryear. They are fast, clean, quiet and efficient. I average 27 mpg with my mostly highway driving. Acceleration can give you *whiplash* About half of the local service stations sell diesel fuel and there is never a line to get at the pump. I'm extremely happy about switching to diesel. Hybrids are good if you live in the city with stop and go traffic. For suburbanites, diesel is the smart thing to do. Hey -- if worse ever came to worse, I could burn old french fry oil. :-)
I enjoy the bassy tone of the engine when it accelerates and the soft pleasant clatter that means business when it idles.
My biggest complainant is not enough storage compartments. Jeep could easily have built more clutter-catchers all over the vehicle -- but didn't.
