#89 of 121 Ordered my JEEP!!!
Apr 17, 2008 (7:00 pm)
Just wanted to say I finally bought my 2008 Jeep Liberty! Got manual so we had to order it from the factory. I have heard alot of positive things overall on it so we are excited to get it next month.
Just wondering if we got a decent deal. Apparently they just came out with 2000 off so we paid 20,200. Its the sport version with sunroof. I live on Long Island, NY. Do you thinkthat is a good price? I hope so! Being I paid 19 and change for my Jetta 8 years ago I thought it was a good deal for an SUV.

A ad in my Sunday paper has a 08Liberty thats list for 21205,it can be bought for 16995.$2000 rebate with a dealer discount of $2030.I think you could of gotten a better deal,but as long as your happy,thats all that counts.I got mine with a $1500 rebate,and $95 over invoice.I like mine so far but with minor problems.The MPG is not great,and it lacks power.Good Luck!

I had the same concerns which is why when I bought mine last year I only got a sunroof. Problem was the leak was in the back hatch and roof - nothing to do with the sunroof.
The slider roof is very cool. I would wait a year and see how it performs.

I hear you and that is probably what will happen.. cloth can't last as long as steel or glass..
#94 of 121 Sunroof leaking
May 30, 2008 (4:57 pm)
Just took the OL's week old Liberty through a automated car wash today. The second time for it and the sunroof leaked both times under heavy water pressure. Her JGC Overland which I traded in and my 02 Liberty never leaked, so I went back to the Dealer and he reports that the sunroof leaks under high pressure car washes and this is normal. Said the 4 drain tubes are to small to handle the runoff of the pressurized water. This is not normal to me, so I took my 300 down and it does not leak. They vow it will not leak unless it is in a high pressure wash. Am I being snookered?

I have a 06 Charger with a sunroof that went through many car washes,and never leaked,I had other cars with sunroof,they never leaked.I think your being snookered.When I get BS from the service dept.,I go to the GM of the dealer and tell them I want my vehicle fixed.I also have a 08 Liberty,which I like it,but been having minor problems and its like pulling teeth to have them fix it.Next week all four Wrangler ST are coming off and replaced with Goodyear Fortera tires,under warranty,I pay the differance in the tires about 100 bucks.,but I had to go to Goodyear to do this,my dealer did nothing.I think Chrysler is trying to save money,so now we have to fight to get good service.Good Luck.
#96 of 121 2008 Liberty Sunroof Leaking

Reported to Chrysler Customer Satisfaction that the 08 Liberty Sunroof leaks under hi pressure automatic car wash and confirmed by the dealer twice since I bought the car two weeks ago. You get water in your face when it hits the sunroof (closed of course). Chrysler Customer Satisfaction just reported that the 2008 Liberties are not designed for Hi pressure car washes and will leak in a high pressure car wash. So bottom line don't waste your money on a sunroof on the 08 Liberty unless you don't mind getting wet when you use a Hi Pressure car wash. My 7th Jeep and my first leak and they can't fix it as it is a design issue. Guess the OL's Jeep will be a "dirty" Jeep unless I feel like getting wet.

They should of issued you a umbrella.What are you suppose to do during a rain storm,duck under cover?Sounds like customer sastisfaction doesn't work at Chrysler.My 08 Liberty has minor problems that it should never had.I see that they are having quality issues,and should fire some of their engineers.
#98 of 121 Liberty Sunroof leaking

Your right on your quality statement. Never heard of a design issue with sunroofs that leak under pressure at a car wash. First sunroof I ever had do that and the answer is a "design" that is not car wash friendly. My other Jeeps never leaked and my 300's don't leak. In a rainstorm the Jeeps sunroof trough's get water in it but it doesn't rain on you. Guess the motto is don't buy a sunroof if you want to stay dry.
I agree with you on their engineers getting a wake up call. No way to design a sunroof.
