This is the fifth time in the eight years I've owned this Jeep that I've had this problem. It has less than 60,000 miles on it. All of the window's regulators have failed, and this is the beginning of round two. The first failed in less than 3 years and all the others failed before I'd owned it for 7 years. I luckily bought an extended 7 year warranty and while the bill was around $400 for each window regulator replacement at the local dealer here in Torrance, CA , I only had to pay $50. This will be the first one I have to pay totally out of pocket. This problem is posted all over the web and seems to effect only Libertys that were built after 2003. Lucky me! Chrysler obviously knows about the problem and has no intention of fixing it. Before I owned this car I had no idea that window regulators ever went out. My nephew drives my old 14 year old Toyota, which has over 100,000 miles on it and although it looks every day of it's 14 years, all the windows still work! At 54 I've owned multiple cars. This is only my second American made vehicle and that's why I bought it. I'm currently looking for a new one and I won't make that mistake again. Hello Honda, Toyota, Mazda....

Jeep should recall the window regulators ON ALL THEIR VEHICLES!

I had the right side passenger window fixed four times while under warranty, and twice after the warranty was out--now there is a piece of a vacuum cleaner holding up the window--on both sides of the car.

They extended the warranties on new models with the same issue, but not the older ones. Not that I trust the dealers--they quoted me 1500,00 to fix control arms that were under recall!!!!

Last Friday the left rear window when I attempted to raise it something broke and it would not go up or down. The motor sounded like it was working but something came unconnected. Then on that same afternoon when I attempted to raise the front passenger side window there was a loud bang and the window dropped into the door. I was unable to retrieve the glass until I took the door panel off. I was able to raise the window for security reasons and wedge a screwdriver handle between the glass and the frame. I then took the vehicle into Chrysler and had them repair these broken parts. They replaced both window regulators which were $101.73 each and the labor was $364.61. The service technician said they (Chrysler) has had a 'lot' of trouble with these regulators...especially on the 2006 and 2007 Jeep Liberties and Grand Cherokees. Chrysler came out in 2006 and replaced all broken regulators (and there were a lot) but that didn't help the customers that had 2003, 2004 and 2005 Liberties. We got stuck paying for a defective or faulty part which Chrysler knew was a problem before 2006 models started having problems. I think...and I will join into a lawsuit with others...Chrysler should replace all broken or defective model years.

It's a pain, because only way for rear seat passenger to exit vehicle is for someone else to get out and open door. Window also will not go down.

driver's window, passenger's window, rear or front. it doesn't matter. i do know that silver duck tape doesn't come off windows very easily no matter what kind of weather you are having. it looks horrible and it's very sticky. and very ridiculous.

this was the first time one of the windows failed. if memory serves, it was the driver's side rear window. it was annoying but didn't think anything of it after i got it fixed. if i knew then what i know now, i would have already bought a different vehicle.

A month ago the passenger side window regulator broke, now the drivers side has broken. Another $287.00 to fix it. Others have paid more but luckily I have a friend at a garage who can fix it and save a little on the bill. From what I understand this is an ongoing problem with the Jeep Liberty.

I'm complaining on something to do with the windows of my 2004 jeep liberty. apparently jeep has never fixed a plastic piece that affects the window from falling into the door because of a little plastic piece and its is now affecting the locking and unlock mechanical functions of the window and doors.

Rear window regulator failed on drivers month later, the front passenger window has the same failure. Jeep is more than aware of the issue. It is a safety issue and needs to be recalled.

In 7 years...driver side front widow has dropped & regulator has been replaced 5 times. Drivers side rear replaced 4 times (currently broken and bolted shut!). Passenger side rear replaced once. Total cost to replace a poorly designed defective part $2,500.00. WHY??? This is utterly ridiculous. Part is guaranteed for a breaks in 13 months. Is this a conspiracy by Jeep? I will never by a Jeep product for this reason alone (other than that I LOVE MY JEEP). Enough is enough! I will drive with all my windows bolted shut before I spend another penny on a defective part!!!!!

I'm sick and tired of having this repeat problem after paying $300 three times for the same thing. Jeep needs to man up and recall the parts. I'm seeking legal counsel.

Liberty LX 3.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission

We had loved this car so much we bought another one. Since the windows fall down, I’m very disgusted and I highly regret partnering up with a jeep product. They should change the name to "CHEAP" as in "it falls apart easily." I was enthused to buy American yet I feel like I'm being taken advantage of by schemers and rip offs.

I'm calling today to look for a recall or some help with this problem

Ditto to all others. These windows suck bad and i'm on my 4th repair...the back 2 windows are wedged shut with wood (yeah, that's safe for the kids). Now the front ones are f*cked up again excuse my French and I'm wedging some PVC pipe in because I can't afford to keep buying the stupid damn regulators that are the stupidest damn design whoever this engineering team was should be sued class action by us.

This is the second time that both back windows has fallen while in parking lots. This time I decided to tied them up. I believe that this matter should be looked into & a recall to be corrected.
