Diesel version good, too many problems
By CRD on
2006 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
Every month there has been a recall on some part with the Liberty CRD. The accesory Plugs pop a fuse at the slightest amount of draw. Electronics lighting went haywire after towing a trailer. Great solid body for taking offroad; however needs severe improvement in the electronics and power supplies. Don't recommend if you plan to use accessory plugs with anything bigger than a cellphone. Wiring for towing also seems poorly insulated and subject to shorts.
Rugged build, great for offroad. CRD model gets around 30mpg on open highway, very respectable for a SUV
Improved electronics. Create a quality vehicle before issuing 20+ recalls in less than a year.
