Just to get people talking any one thought about jeep liberty diesel drive train in the freelander. My girlfriend has a 06 gas liberty so i have got on there forum to do some repair reading and looking around. the Diesel every one seems to be happy about and and they have a six speed to go behind it. haven't even started to do any real research yet just a thought i wanted to throw out

Im sorry I havent looked it up but did the Kia, Rio have gas or diesel motors?
This was badged "Kia Rio" in Samoa, using the same exact emblems as on the shitty subcompact sold in the U.S. It had 1-liter 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated diesel that nearly got me a speeding ticket in 35-mph-everywhere country.

That picture is great. It looks like a clown car, out of proportion with the driver. OFF ROAD UTILITY!!!
