2003 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 102003


  • 1,500 miles


Bought the 2003 Jeep Liberty brand new in may, 2003. Now a year and seven months later, we still have squealing brakes. The dealer in wichita has replaced the pads 2 or 3 times, and re-surfaced the pads once or twice. They've now decided that they will need to replace the back brakes, including the roters. These parts have been ordered, and we are waiting to have this work done. Additionally, the automatic transmission started downshifting hard from 3rd gear to second gear, and down to first gear. They replaced some parts in the transmission, and this problem appears to be fixed. We'll see! they blamed the rusting brakes to "humidity"...the car now has only 7,200 miles on it, and has been kept inside the garage every night of it's existence. The dealer claims that all the squealing and rusting of the brakes are due to the "humidity" in the air. We live in the exact middle of the us in Kansas. There's not a lot of moisture in the air inside of my attached garage. This brake problem has been ongoing from mid 2003 to the present time in December of 2004. The car only has a little over 7000 miles on it...the dealer said that "the problems might go down if we would drive the car more often." We would not recommend a Jeep Liberty to anyone we like.
