On 01/02/12 my passenger front window fell down and would not roll back up. Now, since that time, on 03/16/12 my driver's side window has fell down too and will not roll up. Within, two months both of my windows have failed. There is some kind of malfunction going on here. Does this mean in four more months, that all of my windows will fail? something should be done about this, because obviously this is a problem that not just I am having. There are a lot of others having this same problem with their Jeep. Updated 04/02/12.

I bought a 2002 Jeep Liberty sport in August 2001. I still own it and over the years there has been a consistently recurring problem with the operators on the door windows breaking or failing causing the window glass to fall inside the door. This has occurred on my vehicle at least once a year (to different windows) and each time the repair is to replace the window operator at a cost of almost $300 for the part and equal amount for labor, etc. The failure is apparently a plastic clip that breaks or loses its grip on the glass but the dealers say they must replace the whole operator. I note from the internet that many other Jeep Liberty owners report the same defect. Why can't Chrysler/Jeep come up with a permanent fix for this problem. It is a chronic defect and a potential safety hazard if there are children in the vehicle.

My 2007 Jeep Liberty has yet again had another window break due to their faulty brackets installed by Jeep. This is the second window of mine to go out in less than a year. At first the window was having trouble go up by itself and then yesterday it made a popping noise and the glass fell down completely and will not come back up. This should be recalled there is no doubt about it.

I was driving home with my wife and 7 month old baby in her car seat while driving, all of a sudden the rear passenger side window completely drops inside the door. I'm very upset about this due to if the window would've broke or shattered it could've hurt our new born baby. I have since looked online and have seen thousands of similar cases with the same problem (2006 Jeep Liberty). I don't know why Chrysler has not recalled this problem with the windows when soo many people are having the same re-occurring issue. Im stuck now with a bill from the dealer due to the warranty does not cover the whole cost of the repair which they explained that I need to replace the motor, window regulator also the glass. Keep in mind I jus purchased this vehicle in January 4 months later im already having problems.

Drivers side rear window falls down.

Failure Date: 04/17/2010

I own a 2007 Jeep Liberty. In April 2010, I had to have the power window regulator, motor and glass (nothing wrong with the glass) for the driver side front and rear replaced. Of course the warranty expired. I was told that the regulator failed but I had to have all replaced. I was told that the design for the 2007 regulator was changed and that is why I had to have all replaced at a cost of $425. 00 each. Now the passenger side rear window just dropped down into the door without warning (Aug 25,2010). I assume that I will have to have the regulator, motor and glass (again nothing wrong with the glass) replaced at another $425. 00. I am just waiting for the front passenger side glass to fall into the door and have to replace that also. I have searched the internet and found thousands of complaints regarding this issue. Some have had to have the regulators replaced three or four times. Yet there is no recall. This is a disgrace. It is totally unfair for the owners of these vehicles to have to continue to shell out this kind of money over and over again when there is clearly a design flaw. How many complaints will it take before they issue a recall? [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).

On 3/20/10 the front passenger side window fell down while car was parked with dog inside in a snow storm in parker, CO. My dog jumped out and was recovered by animal control. Several items in my Jeep were covered in snow/ice including paperwork and official forms for for my work that has since been ruined due to water damage. This is the 5th time I have experienced issues with window regulators in this same vehicle. In August of 2009, the rear dirver's side window had to be replaced. At this time Chrysler told me that defective parts were being used in Libertys but there is no recall and the replacement option was to replace the entire glass and regulator. In December of 2009, the drivers side window began rolling up crooked and was replaced. The passenger window is yet to be replaced as I am waiting on a response from Chrysler to see if they will cover the $500. 00 repair cost since this is a recurring problem.

I was driving on 295 in baltimore, MD during rush hour when my driver's side rear window started to fall. This is the 6th time I have had a regulator problem, second time for this window. I almost hit the car in front of my because it caught me off guard. I went to the dealership and sure enough its the regulator except this time they aren't just replacing the regulator but the glass too. I really wanted another Jeep but since I keep having the same problem that isn't going to happen. Jeep needs to issue a recall, everyone in the dealership said this is an ongoing problem. If they know it is a problem; they need to do something about it. They need to do something before someone dies from it. It is extremely distracting. It also reduces your visibility when you have to duct tape your window shut.

2006 Jeep Liberty power windows fall into the door. Requires new regulator and window glass installed. All four windows in my vehicle have failed in the past 14 months since purchasing the vehicle. Dealer replaced 3 under warranty, but the 4th happened 132 miles outside of warranty. Dealer says Chrysler will not fix under warranty. This is a very well known problem that has affected practically all 2006 Jeep Libertys according to the service manager at my dealership.

The contact owns 2007 Jeep Liberty 4x4. While the vehicle was stationary, the contact stated the rear passenger side automatic window released in a downward motion without assistance. The vehicle was in the process of being repaired at the dealer. The identical failure occurred previously with the front driver side automatic window in which the window regulator and glass were replaced. The failure mileage was 45,000.

The window regulator on the front driver's side window suddenly broke while driving as I was rolling up the window, causing the window to crack while halfway down. This is the second time this has happened. Last time it was on a left, rear window. I brought it to tyson's Jeep in virginia and they said it is a known problem but not part of a recall. They replaced the regulator and the glass, costing me approximately $500. The parts were available, but are of the same design, so the problem could reoccur at any time.

Driver's window began to slide almost immediately after purchase in Dec. 2008. Back passenger window stuck about 2 inches down and then suddenly came crashing down while I was on the interstate. It nearly scared me to death! the back window is in the door. We try to keep the window covered and are not currently driving the vehicle because we can't afford the repair right now. Occasionally the wind pulls the protective covering off, and we have rain stains on the seats as a result. My understanding is they no longer make this regulator because it is faulty, so the glass have to be replaced also with the new regulator at a cost of about $500 per window. This is crazy for the consumer to have to pay for a faulty product. I have contacted Jeep, but they do not seem concerned. I am shocked and saddened to find so many complaints about the same thing and for Chrysler/Jeep not be held accountable.

Replaced the rear power window regulator and glass for the second time this year. They assured me it would not happen again after the first repair since they used am improved part. Dealer states this time Jeep knows of this defect but "can't find a supplier with decent parts" so people are forced to make the same repair over and over. When this happens, I am unable to close the window, causing a safety issue when driving and parking the vehicle in lots.

I'm aware that this is a common defect, but perhaps there's strength in numbers. I've had no problems with my Jeep up until a few weeks ago, it had been parked for about a month when one day I noticed that the rear drivers side window was down about 3-4". I turned on the vehicle to discover that the regulator appeared to have gone out. This is especially odd considering the window's been used maybe 3 times since the vehicle was new. Now, since I refuse to pay $300 to fix something that the manufacturer has admitted to being defective (I. E. Their fault), I'm stuck dealing with a visual impairment and security issue that could lead to ether an accident or the theft of the vehicle itself. When driving, as I often do in my vehicle, especially on the interstate, I need to be able to look over my shoulder and quickly determine at times whether or not it is safe for me to move over. The fact that the window falls at the slightest bump, not all the way down, but just enough so that the top of the glass presents a visual impairment that causes me to have to unnecessarily maneuver to try and see. There is also the matter of occupant exposure to the elements and the fact that since the window will fall for no apparent reason any time, day or night, in use or not, this presents a wonderful target for would-be thieves and burglars.

This is to report a faulty part on the window regulator. Three times mine has failed. Twice the left rear window has fallen into the door due to a regulator which was faulty and on the third occasion is was the right rear window that fell. Lucky for me, I was stopped when my windows dropped. When the part fails, the glass just falls down into the door. The cost to repair is $750. At the dealer because you must replace the whole regulator, you cannot replace just the fifty cent part. The alternative which most people do is to tape the window glass up which obscures the vision and is a safety hazard. This is a chronic problem that Jeep has known about for years. Imagine a mother driving with a child in the rear car seat in a heavy rainstorm and passes a tractor trailer at normal speeds. The window fails and falls. You then have heavy rain and debris coming into the rear window. The mother panics as she is concerned about what is happening to her child and veers into the tractor trailer. These vehicles need to be recalled immediately. The faulty plastic slides need to be redesigned and replaced with a metal slide with neoprene guides. I am not the only one with this problem - a simple internet search will yield hundreds of other individuals who have encountered this problem. I have saved the parts from my door if you wish to inspect them.
