Re: looking at buying a 2008 CRD

Purchased a 2007 Limited with 56000 miles on it 9/1/11 for $22k. Now has 61000 on it. I am 45 yrs old and have owned many SUV's and trucks over the years. WIth the CRD, it is the BEST towing midsize SUV. Pulls my open trailer with dirt bikes like not even there and my loaded enclosed trailer with out ever down shifting, just rock solid. The GC CRD is a bit pricey for a used SUV, but worth every penny. Mileage is better than gas, but can't justify on that alone. The 3.0 CRD is a perfect match for a GC. Would buy one again in a second.

If I could keep it to only 10km over the posted limit....I'd easily get 800km.
I try...but, it's so easy not to!

Buy it! You'll be amazed how fast the beast accelerates :-)

Think of the saving in buying spark plugs alone :-) So much torque!

Re: looking at buying a 2008 CRD

Almost 50,000 on my '08 Limited CRD and zero problems. I tow a 3500# trailer a lot and it is great. Put on Load Leveler shocks so ride is not as smooth as stock, which was great and much better than my '05 4.7 Limited.
