I lease a 2007 Jeep Liberty. Leased it in April 2007. July 2007 I had to have the driver's side rear regulator replaced. June 2008 it went again and they replaced it. I just had the passenger front one replaced. You are right they do no acknowledge a problem. I spent 2 days on the phone with the complaint line. I did get them to agree to cover the rental I had but when I asked if they could send the info I needed to provide in an email it was like I was asking for too much. They are mailing me the info. I told them they would be hearing from me if I didn't get it. They said they wanted to know if it happened again. I told them no if but when! Said I was tired of having to walk around my jeep every time I got in to make sure all my windows were there. I told them I relize it wasn't an engine problem but windows are a safety issue and if it happened again I would take the steps to Lemon Law it!

When my window went bad (oh the third one I think), I took it over and had it fixed and then it went bad right away again. They listened and talked among themselves and told my husband there was nothing wrong. I got on the phone with them, while he was there and insisted they do something. So they fixed the regulator and then said they did it just because they couldnt find anything to be wrong at all with the windows.
Well, my warranty is apparently about to be up. I'm wondering from now on if I will be able to go to a repair shop, and explain that I know it is the regulator? That should be cheaper to fix and much easier than going to the dealership.
I still want to trade this thing in, but in these economic times I dont think I can.

Believe me I understand about trading it in. I love the Liberty with the exception of the windows. I am leasing and am stuck with it until 2010. I am going to yell everytime it happens until they get tired of me. There is a compalint line you can call

Does anyone have directions on how to repair the front (power) and rear windows ?
Like most you we can't afford the 300 to 400 dollars to repair them every other month .
DON"T EVER BUY ANOTHER CHRYSLER PRODUCT !!!!!

I own a 2004 Jeep Liberty. Since 2004 I have had all 4 windows fall down. It's become where I know almost every other month, sometimes more, I will have a window fall. I have taken every approach with both my dealership and corporate, from trying to be nice and understandable, to being very upset and angry. Bottom line is I am at the mercy of my own car never knowing when a window could fall. It's happened during bad weather, it's happened with clients in my car, it's happened where something was stolen out of the back of my car. It's honestly a safety hazard for a woman driving by herself...The frustrating part is that I have had no other problems with my Liberty. It's been a great car, except for one very big problem. Jeep always gives me the reply of "well we fixed it". No, no they haven't if the problem keeps happening. They told me they get about 3 of those a day. In the state I live in, if you multiply that out by the # of dealers that's almost 750,000 cars with a defect, yet they won't fix it.
Does anyone know if this can be fixed by non-Jeep people. And I mean a fix where it is not temporary, but an actual fix where it will never happen again? Jeep themselves have said it falls due to the fact that the part causing the issue is plastic in the window, and that with weather changes it expands and contracts which causes the window to slip. Please let me know if anyone knows if it can be fixed outside of Jeep? My worry is I have an extended warranty and I worry about taking it outside of Jeep and having them say that my warranty is now voided if they see someone else worked on it.

The only permanent fix I found was selling my Liberty and buying a Jetta. Good luck!

A body shop or windshield exchange station will do this for you. At least these people will know how other vehicles are built and they will have the proper expertise. Jeep dealers have to obey to Jeep rules

I have a 2007 Jeep Liberty and about a month ago the rear driver window would not stay up,or automatically move up. Last week the drivers window went out! I took it to the dealership where under the extended warranty.. ( I run up the miles with my job) I was able to pay the 100 deductible and get the two fixed. apparently the cables or regulators were the problem. I love the Jeep absolutely love it except for the windows, sadly I am never buying a Jeep again due to the same exact problem that I see MANY MANY people are having. I am preparing to get screwed financially by this problem due to the situation with my mileage.

I just traded my Liberty in for a new Honda CRV. The sad part is that I absolutely loved my Liberty, and had no other issues except for the windows. However that was a big issue, I was worried to have clients in my car and you could never leave things in your car since you never knew when it could fall down. Out of every SUV I have driven it was the most fun to drive,but too risky with the windows. Myself and 2 other people I know just got rid of them recently for the same issue and everyone said the same thing, if it wasn't for the windows we would have repurchased another Jeep. Now, none of us will ever purchase jeep/chrysler again. They really are shooting themselves in the foot for such a stupid issue-THAT COULD BE FIXED. Looks like for now I am a Honda girl, at least I know they typically produce good cars. Hopefully one day Jeep will get their act together.
