I have a 2009 Liberty with skyslider roof. I test drove a sport without one then they orderd one in. Excessive wind noise, gapping, and sounds like it's going to come apart at highway speeds on a rainy nday. I have had it into the dealership 9 times, and 25 days without my vehicle to dsrive. It started to come apart on me on the highwway a few weeks ago so here I go with envoking my rights under Lemon Law. Evertime they "fix" it with the updates etc. It is different for a few days, weeks, sometime gapes in different places, then in a few weeks right back to the way it was before the "fix". I love my Jeep but this roof has been a nightmare. I receommend to anyone with one of these roofs to go with Lemon Law before you run out of time. FYI: Dealerships said "there's good reasons why they are no longer making this roof" only available in 08-09. 2010-11, 12 No skyslider roof. That alone tells the story. Good luck everyone.

Did you have to go to arbitration for Lemon Law first? I have had numerous problems with my roof, in and out of dealership. Did they swap out your vehicle with no more money owed or was the new vehicle 8-10k more than you owed on previou svehicle and you had to come up with additional $? Did you have to pay them for your milege use? I have requested arbitration and don't know what's next for me.

Hi I wanted to know if you can sell me your wind deflector? My jeep has that same problem with the slider roof noise. Can your wind deflector be installed easily, I was hoping my husband could do it with your instructions. Please HELP me....

I also have a claim into Chrysler and I am getting the run around after taking my 2008 Liberty, that I bought new off the showroom floor, to be fixed several times. They took the sunroof apart and first said it was the motor, then only a part, now it is the truth, a manufacturing defect that Chrysler does not want to repair. The motor has eaten up the rails.
My case worker will not return my calls, so now I have put in a call to a supervisor, and we will see where that gets me. Next are letters to the company, maybe one a week. I have been buying Jeep Liberty's for well over 7 years, I think my next SUV will be something else. I even traded in an older Liberty for this Liberty only because of the Slider roof. I am not very happy at this point.

I tried to also use the extended warranty that was pushed on us, it is worthless for the roof, it only covers the motor. And trying to trade the car in, NOPE, the value of the Jeep just dropped, because of the roof that does not work, or you can fix it first and then come back and we will talk about trade then.. WT????? I am so at Chrysler....
I hate having to go over 45 miles the air wind tunnel in the car and the noise is crazy, it won't seal properly. I feel I am paying on half a car and I am just not happy with the product.

5K out of warranty the passenger side breaks. It is obvious we have a snapped cable and take the car into a Dealership for a quote. It costs us $109 to just "look" at the item which needs to be sent out for a day to a special "trim" expert. They call us back to tell us that the cables are all bunched up and that we need to replace the entire roof.... for $2100. Now the motor works, the entire driver's side works, nothing is crack - yet we need to replace the whole roof! I declined the repair which shocked the lady - we live in Miami where it rains constantly. I called Jeep directly and am onto my second case management specialist.
Now I understand it is out of warranty but what doesn't work is the fact this is a known defect yet a recall has not been made, and they charge a ridiculous price for the repair. If you have a problem at least reduce the cost of the fix. What middle income family can afford a 2K repair? Which isn't something that you would expect on a relatively new car.
Has anyone been successful on recourse for this issue? I see some have gone with the Lemon Law, but I am really just looking for the price of the replacement item at no cost at minimum. I am hoping to find out what other out of warranty people have done and what they have been offered?

Our jeep is just out of warranty and we are left with a $2100 bill to get it fixed. Because it rains all the time we need to do something or else the whole car is going to be a write off in a few months with water damage. I am working with their case management now and wouldn't mind knowing when they traded your vehicle in did they pay the sales tax / transfer fees / dealer fees etc? Refinancing a loan is going to hit us with extra interest already.

I just called Chrysler and put a case in. I have to wait a few days before my case manager gets back to me. Any luck on yours?
