2005 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
Purchased as our primary vehicle with many needs - hauling 2000-3000lb trailer, multi-passenger (small) transport with good fuel mileage. The big differentiator between the CRD and everything else, even other Liberties, was the combination of towing capability and good fuel mileage. Add on the extended engine life with the diesel and so far it's exactly what we need.
Turbo diesel seems well matched to size. Very sturdy/sound feel. Interior is straight forward and clean.
Tires could be better but in slick conditions w/ part time 4WD on it's no issue. One good average-sized storage box in the rear would be nice.
