Jeep Liberty Problems

New Latch Assembly Will Solve Noisy Power Door Locks

If the power door locks are buzzing or are intermittently noisy, a new door latch assembly may solve this. The door lock actuators are integrated into the latch assemblies.

The power window motor commonly fails in the front and rear doors. This may require replacement of the complete window regulator assembly which will include the window motor.

Jeep Liberty Recalls

Air Bags May Deploy Unexpectedly

The air bags and seat belt pretensioners may deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being driven due to electronic interference. Dealers will replace the air bag electronic control module and the front and/or side impact sensors as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Will Not Crank With Clutch Engaged, Or May Crank Without Clutch Engaged

The engine may crank over with the clutch pedal not depressed, or the engine may not crank over with the clutch pedal depressed. The clutch ignition interlock switch will be replaced to correct this problem.

Unexpected Airbag Deployment

The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.

We maintained the vehicle well as we have all of our cars and never had issues. The interior is very plastic which we liked because it makes cleaning easy and doesn't hold weird smells. The liberty dri...
