: the contact stated while applying brake pressure at various speeds, the brake pedal went all the way down to the floorboard, and there was an increased stopping distance. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer, who determined the master cylinder needed to be replaced. Afterwards, the problem persisted. The vehicle was inspected by the dealer, who was unable to duplicate the problem. The manufacturer was not alerted.

Liberty 4WD 4-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,300 miles
The contact complained about a brake problem. Since the purchase of the vehicle the brakes have felt spongy. When applying brake pressure the pedal went all the way to the floor. It stop the vehicle, but the pressure had to be firm enough to press the pedal to the floor. Contacted daimler /hrysler, and their technical service representative said some Jeep liberties had this problem and some did not. They had no idea why this occurred. The dealership replaced the master cylinder free of charge, but the same thing happened again, the pedal must be pressed to the floor. The contact was concerned with the idea of losing brake pressure. Updated 11/29/05.

Liberty 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 758 miles
2005 Jeep Liberty limited V-6 purchased July 18, 2005, service date Aug. 24, 2005, mileage 758 miles. The car has been driven gently under mild conditions since purchase, 10 miles each way to work on surface streets. Brake master cylinder failed. Owner became aware under normal driving conditions. While stopped in traffic, idling and foot on the brake, after 30-60 seconds brake pedal suddenly sinks to the floor. Orange light under brake indicator lights up with the error message "type 43". dealer has car and is replacing brake master cylinder, which was found to be correctly installed but a defective oem part. The dealer has been cooperative so far. There is no excuse for a new car having a malfunction with less than 800 miles on it. The point of a new car is not having to worry. Also gas mileage is substantially under the advertised rate. Sticker says 17 city, 22 highway, average has been 12.5 mpg driving surface streets, 20 miles per day rt.
