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.

The vehicle was in need of new brakes, rotors, parking brake shoes and hardware at 93000 miles. A grinding noise from the rear drivers side braking system was present when in motion and assumed to be warped rotors. When the rotors were removed it was found that the parking brake backing plate and the bolts that secure it have rusted to the extent that the plate is loose and no longer secured, which makes the parking brake defective and is a serious safety concern. This appears to be a very common problem and for a vehicle under 10 years old and 100000 miles to have parts rust so severely that they fail is an issue that Chrysler should address, as it is obvious that this part was not made to last.

Today the Jeep dealer said the frame rail was not good enough to install the hitch as called for in the recall. I called the Chrysler complaint line and was told there is nothing Chrysler can do. So now I must drive an unsafe vehicle, how can I sell it, or even trade it in. What am I supposed to do now" I read that vehicles less than 10 years old could be purchased back. These Jeep were recalled for rear suspension componets rusting up so now that the frames is rusting I have to drive a death trap. I am wondering how many times Chrysler is using these excuses in order to not do anything. One could even think this recall was crafted in such a way that Chrysler could get off using these excuses what are the people in my situation supposed to do???"

Left rear window fell with a loud bang. Car has never been off road and garaged. Mileage around 30,000. Dealer fixed it for a charge of $550. I have been on line and find that this is a continuing problem because of defect in the window controller. This is a defect and it is wrong for customers to be saddled financially with this issue. VIN#1J4gl58K36W238708.

  • 3,000 miles
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.

Received a recall notice over a year ago. Dealer continues to say parts are not available. This is not a timely repair and every day this is delayed is another opportunity for a rear end collision to impact the gas tank. Coming to believe that with the volume of recalls issued the NHTSA does not have the ability to enforce these repairs.

  • 94,000 miles
My daughter was driving and a truck in front of her stopped quickly causing my daughter to slam on brakes to avoid a collision but ended up rear ending the truck. Her airbag deployed and her Jeep had to be towed from the site. It has been in the shop since 4/28/14 and was repaired except for the clock spring which is necessary for the new airbag. We have been told that this part is no longer produced or manufactured by any vendor in the country. Therefore, our Jeep cannot be released to us which has caused a hardship on our family as well as a hardship for the shop manager as he cannot be paid until the car is released. Because of this I believe that anyone driving a 2006 Jeep Liberty in the country is possibly at risk due to this device not being readily available in the proper supply channels.
