It was light to medium rain while stopped at a red light where traffic took off and had to stop soon after. As soon as I hit my brakes the ABS kicked in increasing the stopping distance of my Jeep causing me to rear end another vehicle. At the same time the ABS brake light, traction control brake light and stability control lights all came on at the same time and remained lit. I called the dealership the next day and was told this wasn't a serious problem and to bring it on Monday (I called Friday morning). The first time the dealer corrected the problem by replacing the brake switch and the tail light lamp switch. As I was leaving the dealership, less than a mile away, all of the lights came back on. They corrected it again, so I picked it up and it happened again two days later. In the mean time whenever it is a medium rain or above or it has been raining for an extended period of time the ABS brakes prematurely activate. The Jeep was inspected by Chrysler engineers who state it does not have any problems, and will not fix the damage to the vehicle.

On July 12 I bought a new 2010 Jeep Liberty, on August 19 I received a safety recall (K15) master cylinder brake tube(s), from customer services field operations, the notice states that the work will take about 1/2 hour to complete. I call the dealer were I bought the new car and told them about the recall, and they told me that they are confronting an unusual flow of repairs and that for this reason they will not be able to take any unit for repair for the next 2 weeks. What should I do, stop the only vehicle that I use for work for 2 weeks.

We own a Jeep Liberty 2010 that is covered under a brake recall NHTSA campaign id number: 10V009000. We called the dealership and the company and were told they were not honoring this recall we are very concerned since it says the brakes may suddenly fail and don't understand why the company is not doing this recall as announced.
