Automatic windows keep coming out of their track. Have had three of the four windows fixed and the same problem occurred. Had the same windows replaced with a system involving replacing the whole window and the defected part inside of the door. Two of the three windows were fixed for the second time out of warranty but now Chrysler is stating I have to pay for the after market tint and they will reimburse me part of the price but cannot say how much until after I replace the window tint.

Jeep windows: Jeep changed the motor/regulator style and now you have to purchase a new window to get your electric windows to work. This is a known issue and they will not recall the motors or regulators. You can call any Jeep dealer and they will admit that there is an issue with this and want the consumer to pay 1/2 the cost for something that they know is wrong.

The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Liberty. She stated that the rear door window became stuck and she was forced to physically pull the window open with her hand. The left front and rear window regulator also failed when she rolled the window down. The failure occurred on three times. The windows also roll down automatically by themselves and would not close. The dealer stated that they would repair the window failures per the warranty which there were 3 repairs on the regulators. The failure mileage was 35,000 and the current mileage was 36,000.

2006 Jeep Liberty renegade driver's side window regulator broke. I have been online and noticed thousands of complaints on this, but yet the manufacturer has done no recalls. Also, my electrical system is messed up. I have taken to the dealership, but they don't find anything. It dings and different lights flicker.

Rear passenger side window fell down into door while driving. This occurred when I used the power window switch to lower window slightly. 5 year old nephew in rear seat saturated by rain. Unable to pull over right away due since I was driving on interstate 80. This is the 5th time a window regulator is this vehicle, 2006 Jeep Liberty, has failed in the past 3 years.

I own a 2006 Jeep Liberty. Problem with the regulators on the windows. They are defective and Chrysler Jeep needs to correct the problem. Windows fall down and then the regulator needs to be replaced. The first two (one happened in March 2009, the other window in May 2009) were covered by warranty. The third came down November 09 and is not covered under warranty. Chrysler is indicating I'm going to have to pay a "co-pay" if they're going to cover any cost of the repair. Chrysler knows this is a defect, I have researched online and found several instances of the same types of problems occurring. Chrysler indicated to me since a "manufacture product recall" has not occurred, they are not responsible for the problem. What a load of xx!!!

The window regulators on the Jeep Liberty keep going out. Causing the vehicle to have the window down till fixed making it easy to be stolen, or damaged by the weather. Since purchasing the vehicle in 2006 this has occurred 4 times, I have read that is common with the Jeep Liberty and some people have replaced them 8 times. My husband has replaced the part purchased from the dealer at $75, but now he was told that not only is the regulator to be purchased but a new window also.

I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty and I have 3 broken window regulators that have been known to repeatedly break on the Liberty's with normal use. Jeep does not recognize this as a defect and expects their customers to continually repair them. On top of this, Jeep recently upgraded the window regulators, so that when you go to replace them, they no longer fit the existing window and you must replace the window as well. This has cause a great amount of economic stress for myself and many other Jeep owners who are forced to keep handing over money to Jeep for a part that they know is defective.

I was driving my 2006 Jeep Liberty down the freeway with windows up and doors locked. I heard a loud "pop" from behind. Then, the left rear passenger window began to slide down. This was a windy, rainy day. The distractions created by the "pop", the rain blowing in the open window, and the potential for items inside the vehicle to blow out created a series of safety concerns. I have since discovered that the window regulator problem is rampant with this particular model of vehicle and that others have had similar problems while driving down the road.

Rolled the passenger window down and it just fell down. Now all I hear when I try to roll the window up is a grinding noise. Found out that it is the window regulator.

I have had problems with every window on my car not rolling up. I have been to the dealership several times to have them fix them. Now I am out of the original warranty, but am on the "platinum" warranty and the dealership told me yesterday that it would be $200 to fix the rear window. This is a total ripoff. Is there a class action lawsuit I can join to make them fix my car? it's ridiculous to pay $400/month and have a piece of crap car that I can not roll my windows up or down.

The windows on my 2006 Jeep Liberty sport constantly break and thus the window is forced all the way down and I then have to drive with it open or tape a plastic bag to keep the rain out until I can get to the dealership. In the past 3 years since I have owned the car, I have had to bring in my car on 8 separate occasions for the same exact problem. Each door window has broken twice. I feel as though the safety of my car in is jeopardy when the window is fully down and do not feel safe not being able to put it up when driving, especially at night. This model's windows and regulators should be recalled. Having to pay for the windows and missing work to have them replaced is unacceptable. Thank you.

I have had two window regulators in my 2006 Jeep Liberty unlimited 4X4 go out in less than 4 months. I know by reading other peoples complaints in forums that Chrysler knows that their parts were defective and in order to get this fixed you have to replace the regulator as well as the window. This is something that Chrysler should be taking care of.

Three window regulator failures over a 1 year span. Defective oem parts. Manufacture aware of defective parts and new upgraded parts available but at the expense of vehicle owners. Repair expense for each window is $250. I have researched this issue and 2002-2006 models all have these problems with all 4 window regulators having to be replaced. This should be at the cost of the manufacturer not the owner. A recall on these window regulators should be issued. I do not understand why it has not already been done!!

Power window regulator failure. Window will not go up or down. Have seen many, many complaints of the exact same problem. Makes driving in rain impossible, and caused an accident when the window would not go up on the interstate.

2006 Jeep Liberty, the motor for my windows are always breaking I have had to get them fixed 6 times now since I bought it in 2007 the fact that I have to drive an hour to the dealership every time and spend $106 to get them repaired not including the gas I have to spend on getting to this place is just pathetic. I have come across many people with the same complaint and im absolutely tired of going through the same thing not everyone has the time or money to be going through this and from what im getting Jeep is not take responsibility in this !
