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.

Liberty 6-cyl

  • 51,000 miles
Random events of the electronic throttle control lamp flashing and the traction control lamp illuminating. The vehicle would stall to a rough idle or loss of power and an inability to accelerate. On occasion the vehicle would die and would not restart. This occurred while driving at speeds of 65 mph in heavy traffic on hot spring days. The manufacture has not been able to correct the problem after five attempts.

Rear window fell down and does not stay up, used a device to keep from falling down, 1 week later the other one fell down. Took to repair shop and was told the regulator was bad on both windows and needs to be replaced along with the window also. The reason for this is because the regulators were redesigned and it will cost over $800 to repair and was told the problem could happen again. No old parts are available have to put in new parts. The consequences of not repairing are the window can come down and someone can get in your car, the other solution is to have it fixed so it cannot fall down until you get the money to replace it.

Left rear window failure up or down; driver's side window still works but catches. It appears that someone didn't do their job in quality control in making the equipment that regulates the windows. Which makes one wonder if there aren't other parts not up to standard. Chrysler needs to replace at their cost.

I purchased a new 2007 Jeep Liberty and the vehicle did not come from the factory with a trailer hitch or wiring harness. On June 14, I had the dealer install the Chrysler recommended harness. The harness they installed is the one Chrysler supplies and requires for vehicles with an overhead console, which my vehicle is equipped with. It is a seven-way harness, specified as mopar part number 82207248. After the harness was installed by the dealer, I noticed that the running lights on my trailer were not working. I took it to a dealer who tried several times to fix it, but was unsuccessful, even with advice given by the Chrysler technical hotline. When I called Chrysler's hotline to see if it was possible to fix, they told me they provided the dealer with the information to correct the problem and that it was not their problem, but the dealer's. they suggested I take it to another dealer. In light of the fact that two Chrysler dealers were unable to solve this problem already, suggesting that I go to yet another dealer was very poor advice. The service I received from both dealers was excellent, however, the Chrysler hotline personnel were very rude to me, had no concern in regard to correcting the problem, and placed blame on the dealers. The problem is that this harness will not work as required for the 2007 Jeep Liberty. Although the brake lights and turn signals work, the running lights on the trailer do not. I request that all 2007 liberties that have the dealer installed trailer package with the mopar harness number 82207248 be recalled and fixed. This problem is a serious safety issue and one for which Chrysler needs to find a fix, rather than continuing to place blame on the dealers.

We have a new 2007 Jeep Liberty limited, purchased last March. Immediately we noticed that the speedometer was inaccurate and always reading fast. This was noticeably evident as we passed through safety and school zones that show the car speed on the roadside. I had the dealer check it out and they couldn't find any problems. So we started measuring using roadside mileage markers and a timer. We found that at 60 miles/hour it took 315 seconds to go 5 miles. That's 5% @ 60 mph or 3 mph. We also found that it was also off by 3 mph at all other speeds too, so at 30 mph that turned out to be 10%. that's unacceptable ! however Chrysler says that's acceptable and in fact points out in a printed reply that the government allows that degree of accuracy now assuming my average speed is about 45 mph, 3 mph is a 7.5% inaccuracy. I also purchased a long term warranty agreement from Chrysler and I will be short changed on that by 7.5% also and that's fraud! all I want is for the Chrysler to fix the algorithm that computes the speed and odometer reading. The only variable the dealer can adjust is the tire size. Does the government safety standards allow for 7.5% inaccuracy?

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Liberty. The contact received a recall notice a month ago in regards to the blower motor. She has attempted to schedule an appointment to have the recall repaired, but the dealer stated that there is a waiting list because the parts are unavailable. The current and failure mileages were 1,998. The consumer still has not been contacted about getting the vehicle fixed. Updated 09/05/07.
