2005 Liberty

hey folks,

Looking at 2005 +/- a year Liberty's (Cherokee for the European version) and trying to get some hands on opinions. It'll be a daily driver for the wife and occasionally pull a 2 horse trailer (max 4500 pounds) and drive some right of way roads that can get a little moist. We are looking at diesel but don't know enough to make a smart decision between an automatic or standard transmission. Pros/Cons??? Would you buy yours again?

Thanks, Dave

There are a bunch of Euro Diesel guys over on the LOST KJ website. Some here too but a lot over there. They have an entire CRD section. I think the Diesels you have over there are a different motor. They are using the 2.8 CRD over here for the 2 years they were available and the torque rating on those is 295lbs so it will pull a 4,500 pound trailer like it was not there. Make sure you have trailer brakes though.
