2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade 3.7L from North America
I like it but am beginning to wonder if it's going to be a constant nuisance from here on out
The Liberty seems to have problems with window motors/regulators. We bought this car new in Jan 2007 as a end-of-year 2006 model. The first year we had it the driver's window began to stick and we had to take it in. Dealership said the window motor was going bad and replaced it under warranty.
This year (and this week (September) ) I just had the rear, driver's side, window regulator replaced under warranty. The window went down and stayed. You could hear the motor running and gears turning when you held the button down but no movement.
What's weird is I asked the mechanic at the dealership if they see many window problems with the Liberty. He said "Oh yeah, we'll probably replace all four of your regulators/motors before it's done!
If they know there is a design flaw or faulty parts and are replacing them this frequently, then why doesn't Jeep fix it on the line before they go out! Every trip to and from the dealership costs me an hour of missed work and the time and money adds up even if the work is actually covered by warranty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I hate to say this but I am on my 5th window regulator in my 2006 Jeep Liberty. There is clearly a defect since the regulators seemingly cannot last more than a year. My local dealer agrees that there is an issue all the way up to the point of when I ask them not to charge me. The parts they are installing today are the same part number, material and design of the failed parts so I think this will be a long road to ride until I am rid of the Jeep.
