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.

Over the course of the nine years I have owned this Liberty, each of the 4 power windows have failed multiple times.the windows simply fall down freely without warning, and can not be placed back in an upright, closed position. This has occurred twice on each front window, and on each the left/rear and right rear windows it has happened three separate times. Though this is an ongoing and known safety and security issue, there has been no service bulletin or recall as far as I know. Chrysler/Jeep customer service and local dealer are unwilling to recognize the problem or cover the repairs. Jeep quotes us over $600 for the repair before reducing the estimates, due only to my persistent complaints. I understand there has been a class action suit brought by others on this very issue.

After the vehicle was at rest for approximately one hour, I came out to discover that the rear driver-window had fallen down into the door. Now the door does not open either from the inside or outside. In Chicago, this is a major hazard right now because of weather conditions. Also, having a door that won't open could be a significant emergency issue in case of needing to escape from the vehicle.

Liberty 6-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
Both rear windows fell into door cavity multiple times, window would not roll up by regulator motor, must be lifted by hand after removing interior door panel. Both regulators were replaced twice within 18 months, did not correct problem, both windows continued to fall & require removing interior door panel to lift. Defect occurs while vehicle is either moving or parked, leaves occupants and contents unsecured and/or susceptible to the elements, theft, and other hazards. Only method available to secure windows was permanently tying in closed position. >>> this is an engineering and/or manufacturing defect of a specific part the manufacturer is well aware of multiple failures. <<< the defective part needs to be redesigned so it does not fail multiple times.

Liberty 6-cyl

  • 48,000 miles
2008 Jeep Liberty: I have had the window regulator lift plates on all windows fail.....again, all 4 windows have failed a total of 7 times combined since I purchased the car in 2006. One was within warranty period. The 6 other failures have occurred while out of warranty. Of these 6 out of warranty instances, Jeep has covered 4 of these under an extended warranty they issued regarding this problem because they know the plastic lift plate part is defective and "not adequately designed for the weight of the glass and power of the window motor". the service manager at my dealership told me this word for word! this warranty has now expired and the regulators/lift plates continue to fail. 1st one failed in may of 2008 rear driver, 2nd March 2010 passenger, 3rd August 2010 passenger rear, 4th January 2012 passenger rear, 5th September 2012 driver rear, 6th April 2013 driver rear, and now another (7th) just failed August 11th 2013 driver side window. This is a safety issue as it startles drivers when a window suddenly falls and slams into the door. I have swerved on more than one occasion, luckily not hitting another vehicle. This is also another safety issue as the vehicle can not be properly secured/locked. An intruder can easily gain access to the vehicle, hide in the back and then attack the driver or occupants. They can also steal the vehicle or its components or personal belongings. On the internet there are tens of thousands of complaints across various message boards, and consumer complaint websites regarding this very issue. Jeep has admitted to using faulty/defective parts, but refuses to replace them at will. They will only replace and cover the cost of this replacement if, and only if, it is either in warranty or the extended window warranty which is 7 years from vehicle in service date. For the 2006 Jeep Liberty, this warranty is expiring every day during 2013.

  • 95,000 miles
I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty and my front driver window fell down first had to replace regulator, then one month later rear driver side window done the same thing. I don't fill safe not knowing at any time my windows can fell down and you are unable to put them up with out taking off door panels and repairing or replacing the regulator which cost up to $200 each. Is there any kind of recall on this part or is it something I just have to deal with, I think there should be a recall for your safety.
