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.

Jeep Liberty 2004. The window regulator of the rear driver's side window has now broken three times in the last four years. I have used that window less than ten times during the ownership of the vehicle. The window regulator will simply break without warning, causing the window to fall. This is a danger to the unsuspecting driver and any potential passengers; not to mention if this occurred in the cold of winter. This is a defective product with this occurrence happening to thousands of other individuals. The car cannot be properly secured as the window will not stay in the upright position and will open completely on its own. It is a safety hazard as you cannot have a child in the rear of the car. This part needs to be recalled.

I've now replaced two window regulators...well, not exactly the whole thing. After doing my research I found a person that fabricates the vinyl plastic piece that is always under strain that literally supports the window out of.... metal! (genius). I've purchased one for all the windows and am installing them as needed. Who in their right mind would think that little piece of plastic is going to withstand the test of time? this was a very very poor engineering solution. A soft material like that should not be put under constant strain of pull and weight. This is truly a faux pas on Chrysler' behalf. It's like the part was deployed to ensure constant income due to repair! I've read hundreds and glanced at thousands of issues regarding this design and part. I am just beside myself from the manufacturers lack of response. Shame on you Jeep!

My 2004 Jeep Liberty driver's side rear window opened on its own while driving on highway. I never open this window. It seems to be a well-known issue to Jeep but because no one seems to have died as a result (yet), they refuse to issue a recall.
