#17 of 21 Would I trade....

Considering the nonsense I have had to endure since the engine in my Jeep diesel blew up and also considering that whenever a dealer has one of the engines (diesel), they get many calls from other dealers looking to buy the engine from them. Now that says something about this particular engine that just might not be favorable.
#18 of 21 2003 Jeep Liberty windows problem
Jul 25, 2011 (2:12 pm)
I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty and the rear windows have gone out not just once but twice. Now they want $860.00 to fix it again. The paint is coming off the roof, and when I am going down hill and step on the brakes the car shakes like crazy along with the stearing wheel, I think the car is a piece of junk. The jeep dealership I took it to told me they have replaced the part it needs with a new one because they have had so much trouble with the windows, then why haven't they had a recall on them??

I too own a Jeep liberty 2003, 130k miles. First of all, do not take it to the dealers. They are snakes and will charge you up for the oxygen they breath. Second, your car shaking when you are braking is a good sign of bad Rotors and Brake Pads. When one of the brake pads is touching the rotor it causes it to heat up the rotor and eventually begin to warp it. So when you step on the Brake the pads grip the rotor but because it is warped it will shake. The worse the shaking, the worse the rotors are. replacements for those are usually 300-400 with labor (about 120 for the rotors, 60 for brake pads...you will need them and should get them replaced at the same time, and the rest in labor). Lastly, Jeep is horrible about recalls. I have had a problem with my ignition switch and steering column, both of which my mechanic said that Jeep is back ordered on the part as it is a common failure. However, most car manufacturers will not do a recall simply because it is common, they will only do it if it poses a safety risk. To them, my not being able to start my car or you not being able to use your back windows is not a safety risk.

104.000 Miles. Four tires, one battery, one belt, one brake job. A few wiper blades. That's it. What more can one ask for?
