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.

Left rear window fell down while car was parked. Dealer service said the regulator was ok but the lift plate was broken. Yet again, this is a door that has not been used in the last 4 weeks at a minimum. Chrysler service rep who took initial call said that he gets lots of calls for this on 2005 & 2006 models. He went on to say that most of the time is it in doors that are seldom used. Chrysler case manager stated that Chrysler is under no obligation to address this issue even though they know it is a manufacturer defect. Not only is this a safety issue, it is a security issue.

Right rear window fell down while car was parked. Because this happened the the left rear window in 2009, I immediately called Chrysler customer service who instructed me to take it to the dealer for a diagnosis, which confirmed the regulator needed to be replaced. Once again this is a door that is seldom used and the window is almost never used.

Liberty 4WD 4-cyl Diesel

  • 37,274 miles
Left rear window fell down while the car was parked. This door is seldom used and the window had not been activated since I purchased it in 2006. Chrysler service dept. Stated the regulator had to be replaced. Because it was "only" 1200 miles out of warranty, Chrysler customer service would cover all but $100 of the cost. Internet search revealed multiple accounts of this issue.

This is to report a faulty part on the window regulator. Three times mine has failed. Twice the left rear window has fallen into the door due to a regulator which was faulty and on the third occasion is was the right rear window that fell. Lucky for me, I was stopped when my windows dropped. When the part fails, the glass just falls down into the door. The cost to repair is $750. At the dealer because you must replace the whole regulator, you cannot replace just the fifty cent part. The alternative which most people do is to tape the window glass up which obscures the vision and is a safety hazard. This is a chronic problem that Jeep has known about for years. Imagine a mother driving with a child in the rear car seat in a heavy rainstorm and passes a tractor trailer at normal speeds. The window fails and falls. You then have heavy rain and debris coming into the rear window. The mother panics as she is concerned about what is happening to her child and veers into the tractor trailer. These vehicles need to be recalled immediately. The faulty plastic slides need to be redesigned and replaced with a metal slide with neoprene guides. I am not the only one with this problem - a simple internet search will yield hundreds of other individuals who have encountered this problem. I have saved the parts from my door if you wish to inspect them.

The car was sitting in the parking lot when we tried to put the rear driver side window down it slid down an inch but did not keep going. When we tried to put the window back up, it did not move but the motor kept spinning. It's a safety issue because I usually have my child riding in the backseat and stuff can fly into the car and cause injuries. I took the car to the dealership and they replaced it for around $400. They acknowledged the problem as being common but that the vehicle was not part of a recall or extended warranty that was given to older models. I called the national Chrysler hotline and they told me that they can not escalate my issue unless it occurred more often.

problem #85

May 112011

Liberty 4WD 4-cyl

  • 57,000 miles
The rear driver side window suddenly, and unexpectedly, fell open from the fully closed position with a loud crashing sound. One open it was unable to be re-closed. Failure in this manner was very startling and can be seen seen as an unnecessary distraction which, in my opinion, constitutes a safety hazard. Upon investigation I found that the part of the mechanism that directly supports the window is made of plastic and further is of insufficient dimension to support the weight of the glass through repeated cycles. The dealer offered me the same inadequate part as replacement which is destined for the same failure.
