Buyer Beware
By Lamont Johnson on


2006 Jeep Liberty Sport 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Have the 2006 CRD model w/tow package. Pros: Small size, good acceleration and towing capability. Fuel mileage in town is acceptable. Cons: High maintenance vehicle. Numerous recalls and limited engine part availability causing more delays w/service. Have had to replace EGR valve ($230.00 dealer part) twice (once was under warranty). Local dealer (San Angelo, TX) and manufacturer support and service is substandard. Overall, could be a good "project" vehicle but be prepared to invest time and money to get it to its full potential. Highly advise researching the Jeep forums to learn of other "issues" before buying.

Best Features

With the diesel engine, it could be a good durable long term vehicle if maintained. Has good towing capability for a small SUV.

Worst Features

More competently dealer trained service and parts personnel and part availability. No reasonably priced DIY service manual commonly available. Due to the extra weight of the diesel engine, need to upgrade to front suspension. OEM Goodyear Wrangler tires are "soft" and it needs a true truck tire.
