Since I'm limited to word use I'll try to keep it short loss of power to turns off and doesn't want to restart, cruise control, mirrors, half of fuse box, windows off and on, ignition starts on it's own when in the start position, traction light now comes on, electronic throttle control light has come on, part time light stays on when in 2 wd. I can feel how it's trying to switch back and forth. This vehicle is becoming a lemon. I've changed the fuel pump, crank and cam sensors and also changed switches in the steering column. In which none of fixed the problems. After talking to the dealership I was told the wiring harness needs to be changed but that part is discontinued.... the vehicle isn't 10 years or older and after researching these issues there are many many Liberty owners with these same issues. How can we fix our vehicles if this part isn't available to us or the dealership"?" Jeep has known about this problem all alone but doesn't want to have to do a recall on every since Jeep to fix this issue but I will not buy another Jeep unless they fix the issue.. I love the vehicle other than the problems I'm having. This happens at any given time without notice and is becoming worst. If I lose power and I'm driving this could cause an accident with lots of injuries if not death. Please make Jeep fix our vehicles. I can't afford to buy a new vehicle. This body is in great shape

I was driving on the interstate and several warning lights appeared on the dash board. I took the vehicle to the local repair shop and found out that the airbag clockspring was no longer operational. In addition, the anti lock brake feature, cruise control, and airbag are no longer operational. I have been looking for this part for quite some time and it is not available in most cases. The original cost for the clockspring ranged from $80 to $130 depending on the dealer. I have been able to find one clockspring and the dealer wanted $650 for the part plus installation, and he only had one available.

With key in on position it tries and will crank by itself. Also not getting power to some of the fuse box and the part time light stays on when in 2wd. When asked Jeep dealer I was told they never hear of this and when researching the problem there were tons of people with the same problem and no result of what to do. All issues they just want to charge thousands of dollars to fix.

The windows in the car have suddenly fallen several times since the car was purchased in 2007. The first time (2007)the car was under warranty and the problem was addressed. Another window regulator was replace under the extended warranty period. Since the warranty ended, the windows have fallen several times. Once I paid for the repair since the extended warranty had ended, but right rear window fell in 2015(had been repaired the first time in 2007) and the right front fell today(2016). The windows fell while driving both on highways and city streets which is a major distraction while driving. The window fell today while driving 10 mph and making a left hand turn. The window regulators were faulty when the vehicle was built and the components used to repair them have the same issues.

My rear passenger side window will not close. I have had ongoing problems with my driver side window for years. The company claims the warranty is expired. I have seen thousands of complaints online about Jeep windows malfunctioning.

Aside from the numerous problems with the windows actuators failing (6 times) as mentioned in many complaints on this site; esim valve replacement due to a check engine light constantly on; a complete transmission rebuild (at about 60,000 miles); sunroof failure; back tailgate door failing to unlock or open; gas spillage problem when filling up and the hitch recall, I am now having problems with the door lock actuators failing. I've already had to replace the one on passenger door behind the driver. Now the driver's door lock has also failed. This was discovered after a somebody rifled through the items in the car. Nothing was stolen but I was sure I locked it. Sure enough when I tested the locks, the door did not lock or unlock using the key fob, the door lock button on the inside or the auto lock feature when going over 15mph.. all the other doors working at this time. But who knows when I'll have to have the other 2 doors fixed. First door failure date is in the "when dis this happen" section.

My 2007 Jeep Liberty sunroof is leaking for the 2nd time in 3 months. The first time I went and got the drainage tubes cleared out by the dealer. It started leaking again 2 days ago, and when it leaks, water gets into my car. My mechanic opened it up and found the entire sunroof is actually broken. He suspects that the dealer new about the issue of the sunroof but didn't tell me. There is a pending lawsuit against Chrysler for this issue, however they are refusing to acknowledge the problem and are not offering compensation at this time.

The ac began blowing hot assuming it just needed service took to my mechanic, he said the ac light on the button on the dash was also not working but freon pressure was fine, take it to dealership. Took into dealership informed me that it needs HVAC control that it had gone out caused clutch to seize and then caused compressor to have a small fire. They are recommending replacement of both at 463 for HVAC control head and ac compressor at 738 for a grand total of approx. 1200 for repairs. This HVAC system has been known to catch fire in the passenger area and has been recalled but they keep telling me that my vehicle VIN does not match the ones that have been recalled. This could have resulted in a dangerous vehicle fire and this is my family vehicle that my 20yr old and 10 year old son often ride in.

Clock spring controlling air bag, horn and cruise control failure. My cruise control went out but I was told this could cause the air bag to go off without warning. Jeep dealer said they have no parts and no fix available at this time! when and if this part on back order comes in it is going to cost an estimated $400 to fix. This should be a re-call as our safety is on the line. Some 700 on back order as of today.

I was driving to my dad's for thanksgiving, and on the pa turnpike my Jeep suddenly dropped from 60mph to 20mph and under the hood looked like smoke. I immediately pulled over and popped the hood and noticed the whole driver's side near the battery was engulfed in flames. I immediately called 911 but because I was on the turnpike they came first. I had left my hood up and because it was raining the fire went out. The turnpike official cancelled the fire truck and we waited for the tow truck. The Jeep was towed to the closest garage to my house but they have had it over 2 weeks and I am concerned that they might not know how to fix it. I saw a similar problem on a Jeep chat room and this guys Jeep was totaled because he had to wait for the firetruck and they had to put out the fire.
