I am now the 496th complaint! I drove my 2003 Jeep Liberty to a birthday party at a friend's house and the left wheel popped out. Luckily, I was trying to park so it sort of ground to a halt and the tire just pushed out. I started searching the web for recall info and found this site. I am very upset with the dealer (Major Auto in Queens, New York) because I bought this in 2004, one year after the recall for the Ball Joint. The dealer obviously knew this was an issue and they never mentioned it or obviously tried to make the repairs. They ran the Carfax, but we did not get to examine it up close. The sales person said it was "clean". I think I'm going to file a complaint against the dealer. It probably will not make a big difference, but I have to have my say!

I also just noticed my engine light yesterday, and I have an '03 Liberty. A few weeks ago I suspected that the cheap gas was making my engine knock, so I put in the good stuff and gave it an additive, and it went away. But as soon as I put cheap gas in again, it started knocking (it only does it when I'm idling forward at about 5mph after a long period of rest). I plan to take the car into the place that warranties mine on Friday 7/14 and can let you know what happens if you haven't already done so for yourself.
#2140 of 2253 staining seats in 05 liberty
Jul 10, 2006 (1:39 pm)
Has anyone had any luck with jeep replacing the white staining seats? We've been round and round with our dealer since jan. 05 but nothing. Tried every thing-protec,service bulletin with dish soap,stanley steamer, nothing works the stain comes back with every rain or spot of moisture.Should we all petion Daimler together for a recall? Maybe some one would take notice!

Sorry for the late reply, just saw this. Hope you got it fixed but if not it is the blower motor resistor. Located on the heater box behind the glove box. Easy to replace and not too expensive ~$15.00 I think.

jades: Hope is on the way! DAWN dish Soap! about 3 table spoons in a quart of water, and take a wash cloth, and rub the spot real good. Wipe it as dry as possible, let it air dry. If you still have a stain repeat the cleaning again. If the stains are still not gone take TIDE Liquid (cold water, blue jug) and use 3 table spoons for 1 qt of water, rub harder this time, wipe with damp wash rag, let air dry. If this fails consider getting seat covers. I have the sorta of tan in our 05 CRD Liberty, and it shows EVERYTHING! Your not alone. I must give credit where credit is due, my wife of almost 37 years did this and it works great. Good scrubbing!

We've tried it all already! The only stains come from rain coming in when I get in or out. We had protec fabric sealer put on and nothing still gets the white marks out. They are sending stanley steamer carpet cleaners to try but even
if it takes the mark out what stops it from coming back everytime it rains. Im afraid if I cover with seat covers what are they going to be like when I need to remove them later.
Wish me luck Im not giving up on this! Jeep is wrong and these should be recalled,I didn't buy a new car to have spotted seats just months after buying
#2144 of 2253 ac compressor on when- set to floor- heat on-ac switch off
Jul 12, 2006 (2:55 am)
Is this normal-
With ac button off, set air selector to floor and fan switch at 1 or 2. The compressor runs. Even if you move heat contol to hot, it still runs.
Change air selector to "vent and floor " or "vent" and the compressor goes off.
#2146 of 2253 Running Light Electrical Problem
Jul 12, 2006 (4:10 pm)
I have an 03 Liberty Limited that is developing an odd electrical problem. First the D/S running light and high beam light went out. (Bulb and Fuse OK.) Now on top of that when the lights are on the fog lights are on very dull and the drivers side turn signal flashes very fast. Did anyone have this trouble before, or does anyone have any idea were to start looking for this problem?
