2005 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
Special ordered this Jeep. I have been quite pleased with this car in spite of some quirkiness. Love the 2.8 L turbo diesel. It is a bit noisy but the torque is phenomenal. This little guy is no slouch on the road. Great fuel economy, 30 - 31 MPG (calculated) when kept under 65 MPH. Fairly good reliability. Torque converter is weak link in the drive train and I am on #3. Engine requires a bit more care than the gas version but it is an easy engine to maintain. Some aftermarket engine parts available (filters) but all else you have get at the dealer and they are not cheap. Adequate long distance road car but very good off road and in heavy snow.
Love the low end torque. Very good seating position, tight body structure. Economical turbo diesel engine.
Stronger torque converter, please. Longer drive train warranty would be nice too.
