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.

After putting my front driver side window down completely, it will not go back up. The motor runs, it makes a sound, but window does not move. I was forced to leave my car parked in a medical center parking garage during my work shift 4:00pm to 12:00am. Of course, it was completely unsafe for me, a young female, to return to my open car and had to be escorted by a security officer. I then drove the 25 freeway miles home completely exposed to the elements. Having googled the malfunction, I learned that this is a very common issue with the 2006 Jeep Liberty and is very expensive to repair. I am astounded to also learn that Chrysler did not issue a recall on this mechanical failure. As a college student, I am not financially able to incur this expense, nor do I think I should be required to, and am asking that Chrysler perform repairs on all four windows at not cost to me. Please advise. Thank you for your consideration.

The lift plates on all side windows of Jeep Liberty vehicles can be defective. The window will unexpectedly completely drop down. Chrysler corporation accepts the fact there are window defective lift plates. They extended the vehicle warranty to replace the lift plate parts if they fail. To my knowledge Chrysler corporation did not notify owners about the defective parts or the extended warranty. I found this information out when the vehicle was taken in for window repair at the Jeep Chrysler dealership (the faricy boys Chrysler, Jeep) on September 18, 2013. Chrysler knew all the side window parts were defective, but would only replace the window lift plates that were not working on that day. Another side window lift plate on the same vehicle failed on May 30, 2013. When driving the vehicle and a window completely drops down it can startle the driver and is a distraction that could cause an accident. The vehicle was again taken in for repair at the Jeep Chrysler dealership. The dealership said the extended warranty had expired and the cost of repair needed to be paid by the owner. In summary, Chrysler corporation knew the side window lift plates are defective, but would not replace all the defective parts. I am asking the NHTSA to order a mandatory recall and require Chrysler to fix all window lift plates on the Jeep liberties. A defective lift plate can cause the window to unexpectedly drop down and can present driver confusion and a distraction while driving. This can present a dangerous situation to the health and life of americans. Thank you.

Car will not blow out cold air but works for a moment then just hot air. Thought it needed freon but I am being told new compressor is required $700. I spoke to another mechanic who thought the clutch part is the real issue. The car is garage kept and well maintained. Replacing clutch first. I have seen several similar complaints online too. Windows 3 of 4 have dropped.
