My jury is still out
By Jim Walker on
2006 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I upgraded from a 2002 2wd Sport Liberty to a 2006 Sport CRD. I love the diesel. The vehicle is a breeze in traffic and parking. Not bad on the highway. After all, it's a small car with large guts, heavy. Good storage with the back seats down. The dash is laid out well. Best looking compact SUV on the road. My previous 3.7 Sport delivered 17, plus or minus, MPG for 4 years. I am a bit concerned, however, with the CRD. So far, 1000 miles, I am achieving 20 MPG. I love the power and smoothness of the CRD over the 3.7, but my jury is still out as to "was it worth the upcharge?". As the motor "breaks in" I will keep you posted.
Diesel, towing package, 4 wheel disc ABS system.
Jeep still has some work to do with the cloth seats. The tires on the Sport CRD are worthless for a 4WD vehicle.
