Both rear windows fell into door cavity multiple times, window would not roll up by regulator motor, must be lifted by hand after removing interior door panel. Both regulators were replaced twice within 18 months, did not correct problem, both windows continued to fall & require removing interior door panel to lift. Defect occurs while vehicle is either moving or parked, leaves occupants and contents unsecured and/or susceptible to the elements, theft, and other hazards. Only method available to secure windows was permanently tying in closed position. >>> this is an engineering and/or manufacturing defect of a specific part the manufacturer is well aware of multiple failures. <<< the defective part needs to be redesigned so it does not fail multiple times.

Keys stuck in ignition. Would not come out which left leaving my vehicle unsafe to leave unattended. Took it to the dealership today and they had to replace the entire shifter and something in the ignition. I was told this happens often in this particular model. Total repair was $699.

My rear driver side window stopped working and would slide down until it slid down so much I had to pull it up just for it to fall completely into the door the next day. I called the dealership and they wont fix it because it was manufactured before the recall date. I have two small children and cant drive them anywhere because its to cold and the wind is to much. I can barely afford food much less a $240 window repair.

I was leaving my bank and entered my vehicle and proceeded to start it with my key. My key turned and would not start my vehicle. My battery is about a 1 month old and I checked to see if there was a loose connection or corrosion (connection tight and no corrosion). I checked all fluids (fine), I just had oil, oil filter and breather filter changed a few weeks ago and they check all fluids. I turned lites, wipers, turn signals and radio on (worked fine), horn worked. With my key in the ignition, I had no problem turning the steering wheel. I opened my driver's door and saw it show up as "door" on the dash panel and noticed engine lite on. I depressed and held brake pedal down and was able to shift to neutral and back to park with no problem. I had a friend come and look at my Liberty, and he checked and did everything I did. We both thought it was the ignition switch. I informed the bank that I was having car problems and have to leave it in their parking lot over nite. I had the Jeep Liberty towed to a Jeep dealership in stuart Florida the next day (12/12/2012). They informed me that the pin in the ignition switch broke off and fell inside and that they would need to replace the whole steering column. And it would cost over $1000. I was informed the next day (12/13/2012) that they could not locate a new steering column and that they would need to replace the steering column with a used one. Now it will cost $800. I researched and noticed that other Jeep Liberty owners have had problems with the ignition switch. I hope I am not being scammed. My Jeep Liberty has about 50000 miles on it. As I think about it, wouldn't the ignition switch need to be replaced and not the whole steering column? my Jeep is still at the dealership and I hope to get it back on 12/17/2012.

Gas tank overflows when fueling because it doesn't sense when its full. I have to stop fueling before I think its full so this doesn't happen, so I am unable to fill tank completely. Spills all over my clothes, on the ground and down the side of my vehicle. Also I smell an electrical burning smell when I'm driving my vehicle sometimes which is very scary.

In response to all the complaints of ABS light and brakes feeling like they won't work. I had this problem and was at the dealership a lot over the last 2 years. It turned out to be a burnt wire! I have not had any problems in the last 3 months (which is a long time for this car)!. please tell your mechanic to check the brake sensor (ABS sensor) wires!!

2006 Jeep Liberty has defective windows that fall down and present a safety hazard. The 2007 Jeep Liberty vehicles have a lifetime warranty for the same defect. This is dangerous and should be covered by the same warranty.
