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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #3

May 012007

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,000 miles


Air conditioner would intermittently blow warm air. Brought it to the dealership, several times. Eventually it was found to be the bearing in the compressor. The bearing would heat up and bind, causing the clutch not to engage. Had to replace the whole compressor( $900). Air conditioner finally blows cold.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,101 miles
While leaving a parking lot, the electric cooling fan blades on my 2002 Jeep Liberty 4WD limited broke apart sending pieces through the shroud in several places. Just hours before, I was checking the engine for an intermittent noise. I would have been severely injured if the fan disintegrated while checking the out the noise! I have an appointment with the dealer for repairs. I have been told that the repair is not covered under warranty or recall action.
