Liberty Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,355 miles


I bought my 2006 Jeep Liberty brand new. Before the warranty was out, the back driver window regulator had to be replaced. After warranty ran out both back windows had to be replaced at my expense. After repairing driver window regulator went out again. I called the company raising a ruckus and they fixed it. Since then both rear windows broke again. Had fixed again and now guess what they are both broke once again.

This is a major problem. My daughter now drives this vehicle and has rubber door stops jammed into the windows to hold them up. I will never own another due to the window issues. This matter should be recalled and fixed properly since it is a major and costly problem.

Happened multiple times on both rear windows, so I stopped having it fixed because it just would break again.

Jan and Feb is not a nice time to go outside and see your window has fallen in your door..I have replaced both back regulators and the rear passenger (drivers side) now is falling slowly AGAIN. Can't roll it up or down. All I do is watch for rain days so I can make sure its up all the way.

Liberty Limited 2.8L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 108,000 miles

I'm the original owner of a 2006 Jeep Liberty diesel. I've been driving most of the winter with one rear window taped shut as it dropped down a couple of inches and won't move. Yesterday I got in my car and noticed the other rear window was down all the way and won't go up either!

I dropped it off at the dealer to look at tomorrow. Checked my records and I've already had all 4 windows fixed or replaced:

February 2012: Passenger side front window, lift-plate broken, covered under extended warranty December 2010: Receive letter from Chrysler informing me of extended warranty on windows July 2009: Passenger side rear window, regulator failed. Replaced regulator and motor also replaced glass as design was updated. $377.40 December 2008: Driver's side rear window, regulator cable broken , covered under warranty July 2007: Driver's side front window, window regulator failure, replace and adjusted track, covered under warranty May 2007: Driver's side rear window, regulator binding, replaced regulator, covered under warranty

This is ridiculous. I don't even use the rear windows often. Since there was a redesign, why isn't this covered under a recall? I have a 3rd party extended warranty which hopefully will cover these two windows. I spent a lot of $ on this car originally and have maintained and operated it responsibly and faithfully. I guess it's not the end of the world but I can't afford this as I'm sure many other Liberty owners can't either. Jeep needs to step up and take care of their customers.

Update from Mar 16, 2015: The dealer said $850 to fix both. Unbelievable BS

  • Manual transmission
  • 28,582 miles


This was the first time our window just disappeared into the door frame. Since this one, the other 3 windows have

fallen down and we have had the lift mechanism replaced in them TWICE for 3 of the windows. Now up to this point it was annoying but manageable because of the extended warranty. On Boxing Day last year the passenger front window fell down for the 2nd time and when I went in, I was told by my dealer that the extended warranty on this issue had expired and I would have to pay for a problem that was a continuing defect!!!!!! This is really uncool and I am not happy about this. WE really like our Jeep and in all other ways it has been a great vehicle but to have the windows randomly fall down when we hardly use them to begin with is ridiculous!

Liberty LTD 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

How do I join the class action lawsuit? I own a 2006 Jeep Liberty Limited, and so far both rear window mechanisms have failed. Each one fell down and they will not stay up by themselves. I am unable to use either. Phoned in a complaint each time to Chrysler. Chrysler has admitted that there is a problem, but has denied responsibility to repair them. Was quoted close to $500.00 each to repair. Too expensive. Chrysler should not have installed cheap plastic parts in any Jeep, much less a Jeep Liberty Limited which is Trail Rated.

Dec 202008


  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

So I purchased a Jeep Liberty in 2008 and the DAY after I bought the car and was on my way to Florida the rear window just fell. We rigged it to stay up until we could get back to Virginia to take it in. The first time it cost me $420 to fix the regulator. 3 months later, the same thing happen but for additional fun, the window shattered while my 5 year old was in the back seat. I was LIVID. I went to the dealer and had to pay for another regulator and window (with tint) to be put in the car. I had to get it fixed just because it was my only car. I thought that the regulator that they put in the car would have worked and there would have been some type of warranty, but I was wrong.

I contact Chrysler about the issue and was told that it was up to the dealer to refund my money for the issue(s) and they had nothing to do with it. I went and spoke with the owner of the dealership and he told me to go back to Chrysler.....hmmm. Well, I wised up quickly and had a conference call because I didn't want to go in circles and they both did nothing but point fingers. In the meantime, the other door window regulator malfunctioned and shattered the other window. This one they fixed for free, this time.

I didn't even take the keys back, I talked the owner of the dealership into buying the car back from me and went somewhere else to buy a new car. I didn't even have that stupid Jeep that long and I knew that it was a nightmare. I had met SO many other owners with the same issue. I hope I can get some of this money back =/

I bought my 2006 Jeep Liberty from Hagerstown Honda in MD... low miles... Within a week the computer board in it malfunctioned. Took it back, it was under warranty, they had it replaced, 2 weeks later same thing.. This time they said I wouldn't get a rental car to go back and forth to work. I started crying, they of course didn't want a customers to see me crying so once again I got a new one with a rental car... The following year both back windows fell, too expensive to have them fixed so I had the door panels removed and the windows propped w sticks of wood, have been driving that way since....

I got a notice to bring in my Jeep for a hitch since a gas tank rear end collision could cause death.. I did so but already had a hitch, therefore problem solved. They went on to tell me I need thousands of dollars of work done, go figure..

Liberty Limited V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,000 miles


In 2010 I was driving down the road when all of sudden I seen that both back rear windows had fallen into the door panel both my westie dogs ride in the back so I had to pull over and they had to ride in front till we got home. I took it to firestone to have it fixed at the time I had a extended warranty. If I didn't have the warranty it would have cost 415.00 dollars I had a hundred deductible I had to pay out of pocket. The service guy told me he gets jeep libertys all the time with the same problems. The bad thing about this is the motor regulator works but the plastic cheap s--- part keeps breaking which jeep doesn't just sale that piece. It has happen to the front windows also but they have yet to fall. So since jeep wants you to keep buying the part or until someones kid or pets fall out the window its not a safety hazard. That's about par for the course they like to wait and see if something bad is going to happen before they realize they have f---ed up again. So in the mean time I have taken these small metal sleeves to hold the windows up permanently so you can not roll them up or down. They are starting to wear out so I'll have to replace them again.. if anyone has some suggestions on how they fix there windows without having to give jeep anymore money I would greatly appreciate it.

Liberty V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles

I was so excited when I purchased my 2006 Jeep Liberty. It had leather seats and I had never had leather seats before. The first thing that irritated me was when the dealership didn't have a manual for the 2006 Jeep so they gave me some other year and couldn't be bothered to order the correct manual for me. The first time the one of the back seat windows went down and wouldn't come back up I had driven a group of friends to a very important event. We arrived windblown, hot and cranky. The thought of going home in my Jeep made two of my friends find alternate transportation. If it hadn't been my car I would done the same.

I took it to the dealer and of course they wanted a small fortune to fix it. At that time, the only thing that could be done was to make the window stay up all the time. Again, my dealer had no suggestion and would not even acknowledge that the back seat windows falling was a common problem and still Jeep did nothing. My second window fell in the dead of summer and instead of getting it fixed I crammed cardboard down inside the window down into the window and door. Again, my dealer was not interested in helping me. Then not long after the second window went down my key gets stuck in my ignition. If I hadn't has an extra key I don't know what I would of done. So, I drive around in a car with 1 back window that won't go down, 1 window that is crammed full of cardboard and a scarf wrapped around my ignition so that not one can see the key and feel the need to steal my car. It being stolen might be the best thing that could happen since the day I bought it!

Liberty Renarade 3.6L

  • Manual transmission
  • 40,000 miles

Bought my Jeep Liberty new in 2006, now have 40,000mi. on it. Right rear window fell out in 2012. Left rear window fell out, 2014. Jeep does not acknowledge any problems with their product. Guess this is the normal for Jeeps? I called the dealer and the 800#. They confirmed it. There is no recall. This is an enjoyable vehicle to drive, But I'll NEVER buy another Chrysler product. Not to mention the A.C. went out before 20,000 mi. Not covered because my Jeep was now 4 years old.

Liberty Limited V6 Gas

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,739 miles

I have a 2006 Liberty Limited which I factory ordered fully loaded and have had continual problems with the power windows. In the first 2 months my drivers door window would not go up straight. I went to the dealership and had it repaired within a month it happened again. I had it repaired again. The entire mechanism was replaced and again it did the same thing. In the first 13 months I only put on 4700 kms so as you can see I never drove it much. At this time we moved from Ontario to Alberta and a wonderful dealership in Alberta repaired it but I found out at this time that Chrysler came up with some new stupid system to run the window. The old systems never quit or had these problems but Chrysler had to reinvent the wheel. Over time I have had to get the driver side window repaired 5 times. Then all of a sudden one day the passenger side window just fell down. Had to have it repaired. Then I received a letter from Chrysler that they were extending the warranty on all window repairs to 7 years. Should tell you that there is a real problem. I also paid for extended warranty and that was a waste of money. The all of a sudden one New Years Eve the passenger side rear window fell down. Again went to a dealership and they did get warranty on it. Now the extended warranty was up on June 15,2013. On July 1st 2013 the driver side rear window fell down and would not operate. I went to a Chrysler dealership that I had never been to and they were refused warranty. Now this dealership who I never bought the vehicle from or ever been there before was so nice to me that they offered to not charge me labor if I paid for the part. This was fantastic service from the dealership and Chrysler doesn't deserve to have this quality of dealership. The dealership cared but Chrysler didn't. Now why should the dealership be out for Chrysler's poor design. I have since at least done other repair business with them but I will never give Chrysler business again. I contacted Chrysler 2 times about this issue. The first time they responded by telling me tough luck as the warranty was up. I could see if it was a year after but this happened 2 weeks after the warranty was up. I sent them another email in response to their answer and in 4 months they haven't even had the courtesy to respond. I have decided to file this complaint so other people will know about their poor customer care. I hope other people listen and don't waste your money on their product or any of there extended warranty products as they also have a pile of loop holes.

Rear passenger window keeps falling down. Just makes a grinding noise when I try to close it.

Update from Nov 8, 2014: This problem was very dangerous as the broken window regulator not only affected the window (kept falling down) and also prevented the door from opening. The cost to repair was $360.00.
