Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2002 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #3

Liberty Limited 3.2L

I watched video and articles on web, flushed heater core twice. I feel Jeep should have a recall on this problem. It seems a lot of owners have this same problem. Please let the proper division be notified.

problem #2

Evidently the blend door gets stuck on these jeeps and because of the labor involved in removing the entire dash...the fix is around $700 at my very good mechanic shop and that is with the discount he gives me. Wow...guess I'll just continue to drive around in the winter freezing my butt off!

Update from Nov 4, 2014: Well...I had the blend door fixed. The heat still isn't great. It is hot at the vent but when you turn the fan on 3 or 4...the air about 8-10 inches from the vent is pretty cool. I just keep the fan on low. I wonder if it has something to do with getting the radiator replaced a few years ago. Seems like that's about the same time the heat started acting up. Hmmmm....

I am having a problem with the heat and losing oil, I have replaced the thermostat and radiator, Also the heater switch twice!

I was told to get the radiator flushed, at that time they told me I needed a new head gasket. I took it to another mechanic who said there were no cracks or leaks He checked out the water pump which was fine also found the timing chain had been put on incorrectly by Chrysler. He went on the web to find the correct way and fixed that.

I have great power it has never over heated.

I either have great heat or none.

I am trying to find someone at this time to flush the radiator.

Very disappointed
