2009 KK Liberty , a good choice for Extreme Hot weather and heavy Driving ?

Hello all ,,

i recently got my KK 2009, 50 K miles on it , as i red it was built like a tank ,
as all my friends told me to get a Japanese , but i just wanted this Tanky Stylish looking JEEP ,

my Daily Driving Conditions as follows :

- 70 Miles a day .
- above 115 F Ev. Day - AC at full Capacity , never OFF .
- High moisture 70% or more . i live near Ocean .
- Bumpy highways and little offroading .
- little sand storms happen every now and then .

now after 10k miles added , problems began to show here and there ,, and am paying alot for servicing and maintaining ,

the Question is : you think JEEPS can Live these worst Driving conditions Ever ? you think i should switch to a Japanese car ?

The Jeep is a fine choice. I don't know the specifics of the problems you're having but a properly maintained Liberty is a beast that will handle just about everything thrown at her.

Its an automotive requirement for all vehicle systems to still be functional after 1000 hrs of 85C/85%RH. This is only one of many environmental tests performed on vehicles. Your Liberty should be just fine

thanks Guys am so happy for your Opinions , troubles i am having with some sensors here and there need to be changed , Nothing more ,
and some ignition issues ,

but really servicing is costing too much ,, I recently changed NGK Plugs cost me around 150$ in the Dealer ,, Normal Service every 3000 Mile is costing 180$ , i think prices in The US Is way Cheaper For Jeeps Service !! ??

Only go to the dealer for in-warranty work. (Free). Go to a private mechanic for maintenance and you'll save some money. But make sure you keep your receipts and records

Possibly? For $150 though I assumed that he didn't get standard copper core/nickle alloy electrode plugs and went with those fancy iridium or platinum ones
