2005 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 30,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 50 mph, the contact noticed a burning smell from the left rear wheel area. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership where the contact was informed that the caliper had locked up. The vehicle was repaired under warranty. However, the failure occurred again so the contact took the vehicle to a repair shop where the contact was informed that the caliper had seized up again and the rotors was worn. The contact planned to take the vehicle to the dealership for repair. The failure mileage was approximately 30,000. The current mileage was approximately 50,000.

I own a 2005 Jeep Liberty it has 30000 miles on it.. was driving one day and I heard back brakes squealing... every time I put on brakes the squeal got worse ad the brake pedal got lower and lower... called the dealer and they adv me brakes are no longer under warranty after 12000 miles and a diagnostic would cost $59.99... I took the car to a midas automotive shop and they discovered the problem was with the caliper... it had seized the left rear brake pads and rotors and a piston in the caliper was completely locked making the brake unable to unlock properly ant that is where the grinding noise was coming from... the caliper was damaged and the caliper as well as the brake pads and rotors were replaced... (all parts were recovered) the left rear wheel had rust damage due to the flaking of the brake parts... when these things were explained to the dealer he advised that the caliper was covered under warranty but I would have to call chrylser to get a refund... when I called chrylser and spoke w/ kathy (senior staff agent) and steven(floor supervisor) @ 800-521-9922- they refused to believe this problem happened...saying a Chrysler dealer was the only ones who would be able to diagnose this type of problem properly... they would need one of their certified tech's to witness this type of problem... I advised them I have all the parts and they refused to do anything or admit there was a problem...(they refused to give a refund because the work was not done at a Chrysler dealer) they also advised me to call the dealer because the misunderstanding came from them.,.. I am writing you with this complaint because I feel it needs to be known that major brake parts wear out on a SUV after 30000 miles and this needs to be investigated...
