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 .

I have had the same issue for the last year. I bought my liberty used at around 15k miles and is now almost at the manf. warranty of 36k and I am taking it back to the dealership for them to replace the 4th window that has broken. I was told the first time I took it in that the previous owners had already taken it to them to fix one of the windows already. It is not surprising that these american car manufacturers need a bail out. They make crappy products. They should make sure they are producing quality cars if they are bailing them out. Which we know the money will just end up in the CEO's pockets. I will sell this and buy a Japanes car next time. I love my diesel liberty with the exception of this whole window fiasco. Maybe it is time for the Japanese to take over due to we americans have gotten too lazy to build good products and we are also too lazy to get up and fight these manufacturers that are trying to sell inferior products. The gentleman I deal with at the dealership doesn't seem to care how many times it has broken. I asked how long it would take to fix and he said just leave it with me for the day. They do not have loaner cars or will not pay for a rental. They said I need to call the manufacturer to see if they would even reimburse me for the rental. It is the busy holidays and I am running around in the rain with the drivers side window down getting wet. I finally got very upset and told him that I will come in and not wait the whole day like I have the last 3 times. After much persistence and letting him know I am not getting off the phone until we schedule a time that I am not wating all day he finally agreed to work on my car first. TO ALL LIBERTY DRIVERS WITH THIS WINDOW ISSUE BE SURE TO LET THE DEALERSHIPS KNOW HOW UPSET YOU ARE AND DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. DO NOT LET THEM MAKE YOU WAIT.
I am in Phoenix, AZ area. If anyone wants to join a picket line I am game.
Thank you for letting me vent. I hope you all have a great day.

My wife and I purchased a 2007 Jeep Liberty from a dealership in Cullman, Alabama in February 2007. We enjoyed the truck for a bit, but once we had it for 6 months we woke up one morning to find the passenger side rear window had fallen into the door over night. i thought someone had broken into the vehicle, but didn't see any glass. We took it to the Jeep dealership near our new home in Mckinney, Tx, and they fixed it for us. Then exactly two months later, the other side fell into the door under similar circumstances. then the passenger side front window fell into the door. All the while, I thought when we were taking these into the dealership for a fix, they would "Fix" the problem. however, when the same window fell into the door a few months ago, i discovered they are not.
Bottom Line: If you are a tax payer, you are now essentially a shareholder of Chrysler and GM. We have just invested in two companies that do not fix problems, but perpetuate them. I want out of this Jeep so bad. And I only hope the company stays around long enough so that the resale value of my POS doesn't fall any more than it already has. This company is an absolute joke! what ever happened to pride in building American vehicles has surely flown the coop with the Chrysler. Every Chrysler employee should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to happen to what was once a fine representation of American craftsmanship. they all have played a part in allowing this company to do this to the consumers. shame on Chrysler.

I beg your pardon "ena1512", Daimler's huge appetite for profit killed the quality assurance and concept of reliability.
