2006 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #2

May 242011


  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Liberty sport diesel. The contact stated that while driving approximately 70 mph, she heard a loud screeching noise and the vehicle would no longer accelerate. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who stated that the turbo charger had failed and needed to be replaced. The part was on backorder so the vehicle was not repaired. The contact called the manufacturer and filed a complaint. The current and failure mileage was approximately 70,000.

problem #1

Nov 102007

Liberty 4WD 4-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,850 miles
First incident, several weeks ago: Within two minutes after starting car, attempted to enter highway with a left turn. With light pressure on throttle, engine ran to high RPM. Was able to steer into center turn lane while shifting to neutral. Engine returned to normal mode of operation, and I proceeded directly to my dealership. Dealership kept car for several days, finding nothing ( service said they checked the computer and called Chrysler), they said car was safe to drive. Second incident: Last Saturday (Nov. 10, 2007) my wife used car to go shopping. Approximately four minutes after start, engine again oversped: She pulled over and put the car in park and shut it down. When I arrived, attempted a restart; engine went to a high RPM so I shut it down and left it parked while I went to the dealer. Service was already gone for the day so I talked to the manager, who set up a tow through Chrysler Corp. Dealerships service couldn't get to it until wed. Evening (Nov.14). Mechanic found the same problem but can't find why. They called Chrysler, but no help.
