3.7 seems to fail at 130000 i have rebuilt 4 of these engines now and worked on countless others and carbon buildup hasnt been the cause of any of them. i chalk the issues up to faulty timing and less than adequate valve springs. the engine never seemed to perform incredibly smoothly it was too unbalanced but injector cleaner or other gas treatment isnt going to help all that much.

2011 Jeep Liberty owner here as well. I have felt the samething, so I did some reading on what I own. My transmission is a CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) for more info:http://cars.about.com/od/thingsyouneedtoknow/a/CVT.htm.
This transmission operates in a very different manner than what most or use to. I was concerned until I did my research. The transmission is acting as it should...ie feels like its skipping gears, but what its trying to do is adjus the engine speed. Take a look at the link above. Once I had a better understanding of how the CVT worked it calmed my nerves and I changed my driving habits a bit, the jeep runs and drive great. In the end there was nothing wrong.

My ex and I bought this going 5 yrs ago. It now has 87000 miles. I have had to replace the body control module, which I had done at the dealership. It's still does not work right, the fuse that controls the radio, inside lights and door locks keeps blowing. The dealership says it's a short. I had the one short fixed, removed all U haul wiring for the trailer hitch and STILL it doesn't work.
Now a year ago I did a tune up/transmission fluid change before leaving AZ to drive back to WA. Suddenly I start getting the shaking/vibration when going certain speeds(between 30 and 45) if I speed up it goes away or slowing down it goes away. Never happens if I just gun it. Everyone said oh it's the road. So I tested this out! it is NOT the road it's the jeep.So assuming the guy did something wrong (which is not the case) I took it back. They of course said it wasn't their work that is doing this. But didn't give me any idea what it could be. SOOO a year later it is getting worse.
Also both driver side and driver side passenger windows are broken. The back hatch NO longer latches. And if I get to say about 1/4 of a tank of gas the gas light comes on. And the Air conditioner went out.
ummm..lets see, I'm trying to make sure I got every thing right. I'm so tired and can not afford to put more money into this POS. Not to mention the stories I hear from other Liberty owners.
I guess I'm not looking for repair advice, for I have given up on that. Just wanted to put my 2 cents in.
