If it's an AIRport, how come it's on the ground????

I forgot to build a garage. If I had one, the trailer would be in it.

Gina you should check and see that recall repairs have been made to that vehicle. Jepp recalled over 800,000 Libertys. I think it was every year and every liberty. Its a lower ball-joint issue. A few other recalls are out for that vehicle this is one a remember in that it was on the news a few weeks ago.

I just found a link.

Dan, yes.

On my daily commute, I get between 18 and 19. Tank calculations match what the computer on the console says.

I just did a round trip to Phoenix this weekend and got 21 average. Thats cheating tho.. I-10 between here and there is not exactly a challenge for any vehicle when it come to power requirements.

I was not towing. (I felt so.... naked! )

Andy,

Already noted that, but thanks. It's lower Ball Joints.

The notices are not even out yet, They will start in Sept.

Every brand new car I have ever owned has had a recall or TSB...

I think this must be a picture of that Ody (the yellow one). But, I really doubt the mileage figure given.
