My diesel is a sweet ride, my daughter prefers it. I spent $3,000 at least in getting our Diesel Weasel right. Try the LostKJ website, there is a CRD section to get a thorough understanding of the Liberty CRD. Would not buy it without the Lostkj folks. I tell people ask me in a hundred thousand miles if it is worth it. It has more torque than my v-8 pickup, gets between 18-28 mpg and I do get happy feet. The transmission is a 6 speed, well 5 and the 6th is a passing gear.
In the rest of the world it is rated for 7,000 lbs, it is a world car, more sold in the rest of the world I think. I tow our double axle firewood trailer and it smoothes out the ride just fine.
I have not towed the Airstream my frame is rusty but I am looking to either fix this one or buy another.
Do your homework on the CRD you buy, do visit the Lostkj site.
I love the rattle.
