2006 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 122007

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,500 miles


I own a 2006 Jeep Liberty. I have two issues. First one is the rear brakes. I replaced my brake pads at 34000 miles to find my rear outer brake calipers were not making contact with the rotor on either wheel. The svc mgr at grindstaff of elizabethton, tn told me my rotors were warped. There is no way this should happen at 34000 miles. I drive 95% four lane highway miles to work - no red lights at all. You can see by looking at the rotors the outer brake pads have never made contact with the rotors. When the other six pads were replaced the outer rear brake pads were not worn one bit and the outer brake contact surface of the rotor is not worn at all. The second issue is the brake actuator solenoid. My Jeep will not come out of park when it gets extremely hot inside the vehicle without running the A/C about 10 mins. To cool the brake actuator assembly off a little. It sticks in park and will not come out. The same dealer told me they would not fix it because it's an intermittent problem even with it still under warranty (reported at 33000 miles). The service mgr at grindstaff in elizabethton, tn said they would not replace the defective parts because it was only an intermittent problem. I am very dissatisfied with the reliability of this vehicle. Both problems I have are safety issues, factory design issues and dealer warranty compliance.

The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Liberty. The contact heard a grinding noise coming from the brakes when she started the vehicle in the morning. The dealer replaced the brakes on two occasions. However, the grinding and squeaking noise persisted. The contact stated that the noise sounded like metal rubbing against metal. The dealer test drove the vehicle and claimed not to hear the noise. The current mileage is 3,465, and failure mileage is 100.
