Anyone have a Jeep Liberty diesel?

My commuter car is going to be paid off next month and I am giving it to my daughter for her 16th birthday in December. I want to buy a suv and am really interested in a Jeep Liberty diesel. I will be towing a Jayco Baja pop up camper with it and also carrying a canoe. It also be my dd. What are pros/ cons of the Liberty?

I do not but I am active in the Jeep community and own Jeeps. I've heard really good things about that and the WK diesel. I think the reason they didn't make them for long was due to the Diamler Chrysler breakup - the diesel wasnt readily available on the shelf for Chrysler. I believe the engine is a Mercedes and all parts should be easily available.

My friend had 2 Liberty's (gas tho)....BOTH were lemon law-ed. Just another data point for you.

The 4 cylinder turbodiesel was Italian, VM Motori. Not many people stepped up to buy them, so the emissions law change would have been cost prohibitive based on the small number of sales.

I helped my ex-GF buy a new 2003 Liberty Limited 4x4 (gas) and she drove it until 150K miles with little issue, but her commute was pure freeway, very gentle miles.

Kaisen,

I apologize, you are correct. The KJ didn't have the 3.0 liter engine. I hear it wasn't a bad vehicle nonetheless.
