I bought mine new in '05, and it has 87,000 miles on it. After 3 torque converter replacements, and two EGR valves under warranty, it runs perfect. I average 26 mpg with it, and find it very versatile, and great in the snow in New England. Normal maintenance with air filters, oil filters and changes, fuel filters, transmission oil changes, and still has the original battery. Have towed a 4000 lb. boat over the hills of West Virginia, and still got 19mpg, and didn't feel the load back there at all.

Looking at an 05 Liberty CRD - anyway to tell ...

if the timing belt has been changed yet - short of service records? Will a mechanic be able to tell without taking a bunch of things apart?

Looking to add to my Jeep family
Peace and happy 4th!
