The contact owns a 2011 Jeep Liberty. While driving 45 mph, the soft top of the vehicle opened without warning. The contact was able to pull to the side of the road and observed that a pin was missing and the top started to slide open. The contact mentioned that this was the second occurrence. There were no warning indicators illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that a pin was missing and a cable fractured. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified. The failure mileage was 80,000.

I have a 2011 Jeep Liberty with a sky slider, the slider no longer operates and it leaks water the dealership says it will charge 150 just to look at but not fix I have read that many owners are having this same issue. Slider roof also makes a lot of noise while closed on highway like it going to fly off.

Driving on highway, began hearing a high pitched humming noise, began smelling a burning rubber smell, pulled over to side of highway, and smoke began coming from under the hood. Within 10 mins, the front end of the vehicle was completely engulfed in flames. Have owned vehicle for a year and a half, and have had no issues prior to this incident. Car seemed to be functioning normally prior to this incident.

#1 problem, after driving in wet weather, "gate open" illuminates on dash, interior lights all come on, then when I get stopped turn off car and lock it, within about 5 minutes alarm starts going off, shut off alarm, within a few minutes usually will go off again, usually have to take anything of value with me because the only way to make the alarm not sound is to keep it unlocked. #2 problem, opened back passenger door, button stuck in, wouldn't release, had to tie the door shut to be able to drive to dealer, tech came out and stuck a knife in a little hole to release button, informing me that latch was rusted on inside and whole assembly will have to be replaced. The Jeep is 4 years old, body in excellent condition no rust at all, cost to replace this is $179. Not covered under the 2,000 dollar warranty that they talked me into when I bought the car. Its called the ultimate warranty. I'm sure the alarm issue isn't covered either.. very low quality vehicle that I paid way too much for.

When filling gas tank fuel gushes from fuel fill tube before fuel filling nozzle shuts off, happens every time unless you manually fill fuel tank very slowly. Outten motors in (hamburg, pa) told me fuel roll over valve is bad, fuel tank replacement required, cost would be $1051.73.
