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.

2004 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 102015

Liberty Sport V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 121,000 miles


A recall of the 2004 Jeep Liberty ball joints was put in place AUG 3, 2006. My recall was fixed January of 2007. Twice since, the ball joints have had to be replaced and I am out 2500 dollars. This is crappy service from Jeep. If it's a recall, they should be responsible for the bill. I have owned 6 Jeeps in the last 20 years, and I will never buy another one of their products if they can't stand behind them. I called Chrysler and was told nothing of value. I basically bought a crappy vehicle, and I will not recommend Jeep to anyone.

Liberty Sport 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

Earlier this year my Liberty started to feel very sort of shaky and kind of like the car wasn't attached to the wheels. This felt very unsafe to drive and I took it to my mechanic. He replaced the upper ball joints as well as few other things totaling in $1200 worth of repairs. Just last week I noticed that my Jeep is starting to shake and shimmy again. I can not afford to pump another $1200 into. Add in my window regulators always breaking and I'm through in cheap ass quality vehicles. No wonder Chrysler is rated so low by Consumer Reports.
