2005 Jeep Liberty Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 4A)
Bought new back in April 2005. Have had the normal problems that all CRD owners have had, including 3 EGR replacements. It is a great vehicle for every day use and for some off- road fun as well. I have 500 miles left on my extended 100k warranty, so I'm hoping all will stay well. Most recent problem was my 4wd/2wd sensor going bad - said I was in 4wd, but wasn't. I have learned not to get upset with the dealer when there are issues, but rather DC. I think they put this vehicle out, but weren't ready to support it with stocked parts. I will hit 100k by this weekend, and even with all the CRD issues, I would still buy another, but hoping they put a diesel in the Wrangler Unlimited!
Diesel, towing capacity, strong build for mid-size SUV, very capable off- road.
Non-staining seats. Lower cost oil changes! Use standard size wiper blade for rear. Put better tires on vehicle from start. This is my 2nd Liberty that I bought new, and the first thing I did, with less that 500 miles, was to put better AT tires on the vehicle. Otherwise, you would slip when wet.
