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.

2004 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 292013

Liberty Sport 3.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


I tow a camper with my Liberty. It weighs 3,000 lbs empty, and about 3,500 loaded. Last August while I was towing my camper the check engine light came on, and there was a shudder at about 55 mph. My mechanic read the error as an overheated Torque converter. The problem is ongoing Towing, or not.

My Jeep is rated to tow up to 4,500 lbs. I am set up to tow. My Jeep has electronic brake control box, a tranny cooler, and a weight distribution hitch. I am sending it in for repairs to the Torque converter soon. Beware of what you tow with this model Jeep Liberty. They Over rated it's capacity!
