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.

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.

The first time this happened was in 2010. It wasn't actually the window regulator, but this little tiny plastic piece, called a lift gate, that is somehow attached to the window and regulator. Well, it broke and the window and motor had to be replaced. I bought the Jeep used, so thankfully it was still under warranty (that I purchased.) I got a letter from Chrysler stating they knew that there was a problem, so they extended the warranty to 7 years for the window regulators. Fast forward to 2014 and it happened again to my rear drivers side window. Just this year, the other side broke and the window is stuck in the door. The other side is just taped up. LOL. They won't fix it now because it's passed the 7 years. Good news though. There is currently a class action lawsuit in CA, and the presiding judge has accepted the class. Don't know how long it will take until we can see results, but I would suggest taking all your complaints about this issue to carcomplaints.com and make sure to report your VIN so you are included in the suit. Cheers!
Within the past five years, I have had the rear drivers side window go - TWICE - and the rear passenger side window, and now the front drivers side window. Over $300 each time. This is ridiculous. I can't keep paying that much every year. I used to be a Jeep fangirl. Now I'm done. No more Jeeps for me.

Driver side window makes terrible noises when lowering but not when going back up. Dealership has to replace the window regulator

Window will not roll up or down.
Driver side rear door window fell down. Door now appears to be locked, won't unlock and won't open past the first click. (It might have hit the child safety lock or something). I cannot remove the inner door panel to fix it myself. How can I pop the lock open on the rear door???
