I missed the 2006 Liberty CRD run. I was waiting for that model and then decided to wait a year "for the bugs to be worked out". I believe it was emission standards from the Republic of Kalifornia that shut down the Liberty CRD.
I would buy one in a flash if they became available today.
I am actually considering a 2005 Ram 3500 Laramie with the cummins diesel. It "only" has 47k miles and gets 23-24 mpg (Canadian gallons
) I'm towing an equal load called a boat.
How do you like the Liberty CRD? Any major problems since 2006?
