I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty 4X4 the rear window passenger side has stopped working, or should I say it just fell making a loud boom when it came crashing down, I'm just glad I didn't have kids in the back seat when it fell, it could have broke and really hurt some one. The Liberty only has 46,000. Miles on it the windows has not been used at all since I have had it. I have been doing research on the problem and there are many people with the same problem and it appears that Jeep does not offer a warranty or a recall. But a after market is available not even from Jeep of better design to fix the problem. here is one of the web sites where many people have been posting the same problem. Here is the solution from an after market where the design looks better and makes more since. Please help in trying to get Jeep to offer a recall in this problem before some one gets hurt, and as 500 or more is a lot to have to spend for there mistakes. One more web site

I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty crd which I leased in Feb. 2006 through Jan. 2009 then decided to purchase this vehicle. The rear window regulators have failed on both sides twice. The first time was in June 2007 both rear passenger door windows fell into the door. This happened again this year in April 2009 for the right rear window and now in August 2009 for the left rear window. I have seen many reviews on this and that this problem keeps occurring. Once the warranty is up you pay approximately $400 per window regulator to be fixed. I believe Chrysler/Jeep should remanufacture this part and replace it for free.

2006 Jeep Liberty all window regulators broke and all regulators and windows had to be replaced. Hundreds of owners are on with this problem. Windows just unexpectedly drop into door and will not operate. Cost approximately $500 per window if out of warranty.

The window regulator on the 2006 Jeep Liberty has a plastic part that continually breaks causing the window to slam down and sometimes shatter with passengers in the rear seat. Jeep's solution...replacing the $200+ assembly with the same cheap plastic slide window mount.

The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Liberty. The window regulator and glass were redesigned by the corporation, which was a result of the windows malfunctioning. The contact stated that all of the windows in the vehicle would randomly fall down into the door and fail to come back up. He was forced to tape the windows in the up position in his vehicle. Through research, the contact discovered that this was a common failure. He spoke with a service technician at the dealer who admitted that many other consumers experience the same defect as well. They also stated that the window regulator needs to be replaced. The failure mileage was 81,000 and current mileage was 84,000.

Bought a used 2006 Jeep Liberty with 13K miles. Two times the rear passenger windows have failed and fallen into the door while driving along the freeway. Chrysler dealer and internet research shows that this issue recurs several times on this model. Parts were replaced by dealer but this issue apparently could reoccur. The issue is a defective design in the window regulator that regularly fails.

Window regulators fail. Jan of 08 rt rear window fell into door panel. July of 08 the left rear window dropped into door panel. Now, just as 3 year warranty is over the driver's side front fell. Have gone to dealer and since I am no where close to having warranty miles on vehicle they said they would do a courtesy repair. But, since 3 have failed I assume the 4th will go next and who will have to pay for that failed regulator replacement

Back windows keep falling in to the back doors. I have to replace the window regulators every six months. I'm on my second replacement drivers side back window and tree trips to fix it in one year. Then in one year the passengers side fell in an I had to replace this widow regulator too. This is becoming costly and seems to be a defect in this model 2006 Jeep Liberty. Please investigate. I'm getting really tired of repairing these window regulators.

When the window regulator breaks on a Jeep Liberty, the cable assembly can break off of the window. The cable then can come out of the door locking assembly if you try to use the window close switch. This will prevent the door from being opened. This has happened to me twice so far in 18 months. If the vehicle were in an accident and ems needed to get a person out of the vehicle, there is no way they could in the above conditions. The number of complaints that are out there on this problem are staggering. Please do something before someone gets hurt or killed by Jeep lack of response.

The driver's rear window regulator broke and now the window will not go up and down and slides down by itself. Chrysler only sells the motor and regulator and everything as one package, so even though I can hear the motor working and it is most likely a broken piece of plastic, because that is what Jeep use for regulators, that is causing the problem im going to have to pay 300 dollars to buy everything. If Chrysler would use a metal bracket as a regulator instead of a cheap piece of plastic there would not be so many problems with Jeep Liberty's window regulators breaking. And since they don't sell regulators by themselves it is almost like Chrysler is doing it just to make more money and that they don't care about their customers at all. It is a little bit ridiculous that they have not recalled these shotty quality regulators or even addressed the problem at all.

2006 Jeep Liberty. I have had the window regulator go out in my car currently 5 different times. I am also certain that my driver window is about to go out again as I have to help lead it when I push the up bottom. I try to use it as little as possible. When the regulators when out the first three times my car was still under warranty so I took it in for repair. Now that they have broken two more times, within two weeks, I feel that this is a real issue. What concerns me is the safety of my children who are in the back seat when these break and the glass falls into the door, what if it was to break, what if it was storming outside. It concerns me that one of them could be injured. I am also concerned that when I went online to do some research there are many post regarding this same issue, also a petition put forward with 114 signatures asking for a recall on my vehicle, yet Chrysler Jeep has yet to do one. I think we need help to get this item recalled, have a better product installed in our cars, and provide a safe form of transportation for our families. Thank you for your time.

The window regulators in my Jeep have broke. This is the 4th one for me to fix. Each time it's a different window. I have no children so my back seat rarely has patrons. It's not like those doors/windows are ever used.

The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that the component for the power windows snapped. As a result, the windows roll down, but will not roll back up. The failure previously occurred to the driver's side rear and front passenger side windows, which were repaired. Currently, the rear passenger side window is not working. The vehicle is being taken to the dealer for repair. The failure mileage was 7,000. Updated 062909 the consumer stated the dealer fixed the problem. Updated 07/07/09.

I went out Sunday morning, to go to church and my rear window of my 2006 Jeep Liberty had fallen down into the door. The dealer said they had serviced the problem on other Jeep Liberty's and in 2006 the mechanism had been changed. The cost of the repair would depend on which mechanism was in my vehicle. My son had the same problem with his 2003 Jeep Liberty renegade. I was looking at some reviews online and rudy also had the same problem with his 2006 Jeep Liberty. Since this is a problem the company knew about and did not let the consumer know about the problem, I feel like I should be compensated for the cost of the repair. The cost was $376.66. I would also like to know if I will have the same problem with the passenger side rear window? if yes, the mechanism should also be replaced at their cost. Sincerely, _______

Power window regulator failed this is second time a window regulator has failed one back and one front window. This is not only a hazard but could cause more damage if raining. There is also a child hazard if the window came down at the wrong time. Bad part still under warranty they will fix but need new type part.
