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.

I love my jeep and I'm very sad to read that the power windows are an issue with so many liberties. I have a 2006 and for the past 2 years I've had issues with all 4 power windows not working...as in I couldn't roll them down. I've also had one of them fall down.
I just took it in a couple weeks ago and hopefully they have made a permenant fix. For anyone with this problem, they replaced a body control module that runs the electrical things in the jeep. Since I started complaining about this before the factory warranty expired, they replaced it for free and even threw in a free oil change.
I am surprised that jeep hasn't recalled the liberties because I agree that the windows falling down or not rolling down is a safety concern. I don't know how recalls work...is there somewhere for consumers to complain?

from what i have read the windows are not a safety hazard .
I have seen jeep's going down the road with tape holding them up ( ours has tape on it too as we can't afford the 300 to 400 repair cost.
I have written to Chrysler with NO satisfaction .
Best thing you can do is to pass the word to family and friends NOT to buy ANY Chrysler product .
This is not limited to just the Liberty's , ALL Jeep's are having the same issues .
They are all .
If you have any luck please keep us all informed .
