Failure Date: 09/03/2009

I own a 2003 Jeep Liberty and have had it for 2 years now and have every problem you can think of. My warranty recently expired 6,000 miles ago. My warranty expired at 75,000 miles and at 78,000 miles my air conditioner broke and had to replace that it cost me $900. 00. Just yesterday may car would not shift passed second gear, I have an automatic transmission, I noticed it when I was getting on the highway. Lately I have been noticing that the transmission seems to be slipping but never could find the problem because my transmission fluid was always fine. So yesterday I went to aamco transmissions and they said it was the tcm so they told me it would cost $440. 00 total. So they went to order the part but come to find out no one has it and the place that has all the tcm parts wont ship them till the 24th of September. So here it is September 3rd and I wont have my car fixed for the whole month of September. I don't understand why they wont ship them now. Also, they told me that they have been selling out of tcm fast because everyone is always needing them.

2004 Jeep Liberty sport. On March 20, 2009 while driving, the auto transmission slipped out of gear, would not shift out of 1st gear. On March 24th, Liberty returned to us. Dealer charged $500 to replace wiring attached to pcm, stating they were worn out and not covered under warranty. On April 24th the same problem occurred while driving on the interstate in connecticut, the Liberty abruptly downshifted from 4th to 1st gear nearly causing us to be struck by trailing vehicles, and would not go into any other driving gear. Jeep dealer in greenwich, CT said they suspected the tranny was worn but could not undertake the repair. We cancelled our trip and brought it to a local dealer on April 25th, bad pcm diagnosed, replaced. Warranty covered. Received Jeep back on 5/1/09. Later the same day the problem occurred again while driving on highway. Brought it back to same dealer. Pcm replaced again we're told. Liberty returned to us on 5/6/09. On 6/9/09 while driving on the highway the Jeep shut down completely once again an accident was narrowly avoided. Towed to a different local dealer. Bad pcm again diagnosed. Part had to be ordered. Liberty finally returned to us on 7/2/09. On 7/9/09 while driving on local road, the transmission slipped again and would not shift out of 1st gear. We brought it back to the dealer who did last repair. As of today it remains there. The check engine light came on in each instance at the exact moment the problem occurred.

Failure Date: 09/23/2006

On Sep. The 23rd I was on i70e just out of effingham IL. When my Jeep Liberty crd had a problem. There was a loud noise or thud then all of a sudden my speed went from about 65 mph down to 45 to 50 almost instantly. The white van that was behind me just tapped my rear bumper with no damage. The driver of the van went on around me as I went off of the hyw. To the side of the road. This problem cleared up in about 1 min. And the car the went on as it was ok. Please reference odi number 10167608. This incident is the same as that report. Also coming back to florissant on the 30th of sept 2006 the exact same thing happened. However my car was the only car in sight at the time. I have had three events with this type of failure and one of them resulted in the vehicle behind me just touching my car. The dealer here in florissant, mo. (marty cancilla Dodge. Has yet to figure out the problem. The Chrysler district rep is going to be here on this thursdays to talk to me. As far as I am concerned this is a very dangerous problem, especially when traveling on the interstate a 60 to 70 mph. My Jeep Liberty has been in the dealers shop since Tuesday of last week. I do hope they will fix this problem. I know form the Jeep internet forum that this is a real problem with other Liberty owners with the diesel crd. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

On the 5th. Of September I was traveling home from dayton, OH on i70 and just as I was coming into indianapolis, in. My 2006 Jeep Liberty crd had a failure in its transmission that caused me to temporary lose control of the car. I was driving at the speed limit of 65 to 70 mph and all of a sudden there was a very loud klunk and the cars speed dropped from about 65 mph to 40 to 35 mph almost instantly and that's when I almost lost control for just about a second. I check and there was no cars either behind or to either side of me, which was lucky for me because if a car or semi would have been behind me I would not be here writing this. I pulled over to the right hand lane and started to leave the road for the shoulder. Then all of a sudden my car started to drive normally again. I drove at a reduced speed for awhile and did notice that ther was a slight transmission shudder. This went away after a few minuetes and I was able to drive home to florissant missouri without futher trouble. I would like to say that I have checked with other's who own Libertyi's and several of them have had the same problem. Though their's was not as harrowing as mind. I took my Jeep jiberty down to the dealer's the following day and left it there. That was two days ago and they are still working on it. I will be seeing the service rep. Tomorrow and will finding out a little more about what happen. I do know that this it seems to be a ongoing problem with the 5 speed automatic traansmission with a transfer case. Thank you for reading this. James e. Friese, 115 st. Benedict lane, florissant, missouri, 63033, pn. 314-837-3885.

Contact states while vehicle is in park I will accelerate. The local service dealer reprogrammed the powertrain control module. However, this did not remedy the problem.
