2005 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 282006

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • 43,000 miles


As a single mother of baby twins, I am both completely freaked out as well as gratefully relieved to have found this site. The complaints read like a checklist of past issues and god willing, preventable future issues. The gas tank cannot be "topped off"... all things considered, this was a seemingly acceptable issue. The engine light coming on accompanied by totally unexplained stalling every so often became a problem which would cease just as randomly as it occurred. Finally (when pregnant and nervous) I brought it in after one too many times. Apparently this Jeep model/year is weather sensitive. Rain seemed to be the catalyst, but I refuse to put one of those anal person car covers on becoming a slave to the weatherchannel. Mechanic changed temperamental sensor which, so far, seems to be managed. The A/C fan only works at 3 and up, which is too much hot/cold for even the most anemic after more than five minutes. Back to the weather, winter causes front struts to creak and moan like a geriatric beast. Once again, this is annoying but seemingly innocuous. Four wheel drive shift only works in part time hi (or low, don't recall), which is disappointing though again, not life threatening. The combination of these defects simply feels as if it was built with indifference to the consumer. Now that I have two priceless passengers, I refuse to wait for the cv joints to disengage before demanding all repairs be made and double checked by my implicitly trusted mechanic (ironically also a twin). In closing, thank you to all who contributed their stories and enlightening me to caution regarding the dangerous flaws as well as commiserating our shared frustration with the problems, like the window track disengaging, which combined are one big expensive potentiality dangerous headache.
