2006 Liberty - window regulator replaced. Estimate $250 but new redesign increased cost to $390 or I could use original replacement part but would need a new window. We all know this is a defectice part porblem with jeep and they refuse to acknowledge it. The parts are cheap plastic. Any word on class action suit?? If not, let's get this out in the social network environment so people know that Chrysler is a bad corporate organization with their customers.

My wife's 2004 Liberty ALREADY has had driver's window regulator replaced, driver's rear window regulator replaced (TWICE!!), AND NOW needs passenger rear window regulator replaced. (Gonna take care of this one myself!) Sure sounds like there should have been a recall to me! A class action suit definitely should have been brought on Chrysler-wonder if you still can now that FIAT owns them...

I have had my Jeep for 2 years & have now had to replace all 4 window regulators! I wish Jeep would issue a recall as this seems to be a major problem. The last 2 regulators stopped working last week & I will have spent over $1,000 replacing them since I've had this car.

First the passenger rear window, now the driver door.
I bought my 2003 Liberty Sport in 2006 and have had the back, passenger side window regulator assembly replaced 4 times now!!!! I cannot believe Chrysler won't do anything to fix this problem or make it right. Why keep making this piece that breaks every single time out of PLASTIC!!!!!!!!!!! The last time I had this repaired, my mechanic ordered an aftermarket part made of metal so hopefully that window is good to go ! The first time I had this problem fixed, it was about $200 and it goes up a little each time I have it fixed. This last time it was replaced, it was almost $300. Guess I just sit and wait for the others to go bad. At least I've learned to keep duct tape in my car so I have a way of rolling them up after they fall.

driver rear window does not go upon down. Seems to be the window motor or regulator
Driver window regulator went out, $225 to fix it, rattles and creaks rolling up and down now. That was at 169,017 miles. 208 miles later, drivers side passenger window did the same thing. Real pisser if you ask me. Must be faulty equipment/design. Love my car, not loving the window issues.

Bought an 04 in 2006 with about 38,000 mls on it. In March 2009 the LR broke. In May 2011 same. In April 2011 RF broke. In Sep 2015 LR broke once again, but this time replace with metal part. Now in Oct 2015 (as we speak) LF is out - trying to get someone out to fix it today, 9 Oct 15. Obviously had my share of PW problems; but still like the vehicle.

My wife was going to work yesterday and the passenger side rear window fell down and scared my wife to death. I haven't gotten it fixed yet. I heard there were recalls on that.

All of my windows have had this problem. I have only fixed the driver's side front window. The others are held up. Trashy, I know, but I think it's crazy that Jeep is not acknowledging this issue!

Power windows, both driver side and passenger go up and will not go back down again, When windows are lowered, the cable comes up the window like a snake.

I bought this jeep with only 30, 000 miles on it. As a single mother thinking that this was going to be a good bye and a safe reliable car. ...after two months my motor blew, the pistons misfired shot out and some how broke my motor....I put a used motor in which took me months to save for....that blew in two weeks so I had to buy a brand new motor...which now my 02 has had repairs costing over 6, 000 after my purchase cost. At this price I could have bought a very safe reliable car...anyhow....a month later the radiator went, the back windows fell in one which my daughter got her hand caught in...completly unsafe. I would not recomend this vehicle to anyone and now I'm stuck with it because ill never get out of it what I've put into it. Any suggestions would help....I can't keep dumping money into a lemon this has to have some kind of breaking point? How can companies do this to people this isn't justice or right at all.
