Why Diesel not available in NY??

Hello, just wondering if anyone knows why the new Diesel for the liberty will not be sold in NY? Is this because of emissions or something? Will I be able to buy it in another state and register it in NY? Thanks, Bill

Most likely. That's why they don't have them here in California either. I think that there is a federal law that says a state may not refuse to register a used car that is legaly registered in another state, meaning if you can wait a while you can pick one up with 7500+ miles on it and the state can't do a thing about it.

As for buying out of state and bringing it in, I know that California won't let you do it when it's new except for certain explicit exceptions (to replace a stolen or totaled vehicle if it happens while you are out of state, for example).

Until the USA designates the use of low sulfer diesel fuel throughout, there are certain state that will not allow the sale of the new breed of diesel powered vehicles. Mercedes just launched a new diesel automobile to the US market that has restrictions in CA, NY, VT. VW with their Toureg V-10 diesel is the same. Dodge Trucks with their new electronic Cummins was restricted from the CA market until recently.

For more interesting reading about alternative diesel fuels, look up: www.bio-diesel.org

ps...I hope to work out a trade in deal on our '03 Liberty LTD as soon as the '05 Liberty diesel is offered in this great country of ours!

FLAME!

Yep, its called the constitution. Article 4, Section 1.

Another poorly thought out post by me.

what any of you in new york would want to do is buy a pos used car, drive about 100 miles out of state (to somewhere where the diesel is sold) and have the car coincedentily break down right infront of a jeep dealership. you need a way to get home.. dont you? :P

LOL...I'd thought about that out here....buy a beater for $400 and then have an unexplained oil leak cause the engine to sieze while I'm up in Reno . The only thing is that I'm not willing to bet that it would go all that smoothly with the DMV when it comes time to register the new car in California.

That's what I was going to do. I was going to get a clunker that I'd drive, push, or pull to Vegas. I was also going to rent a UHaul car trailer to tow the clunker back to the DMV with my new diesel Liberty, just for extra proof that the clunker is beyond repair. Then I was going to drop it off at the junk yard.

That's what my original plan was, but it's easier to get my diesel Liberty under my Moms name out of state for the first 7500 miles.


BTW, did you know that starting today you can order the diesel Liberty's?

sold - 2005 Liberty Limited CRD, 22G Package, Atlantic Blue, fully loaded.
