whats the average mile life of a liberty before you have to start putting in big $
Very good question, I've seen them go bad at 85K with tranny troubles and engine failures then I've seen others that have close to 200K without a problem, maintenance plays a big role in the life of a vehicle these days. So if it has been meticulously maintained chances are it will run a long time.
mine is an 2011 with 102,980 the only parts I have changed is a coil, water pump and routine filters. dealership did one strut
What about a 06 liberty with 212 thousand miles on it
I would say walk away unless they have all the maintenance records from when it was new, and then you might consider it if some of the common failures have already been fixed.
