I attempted to buy a white Jeep commander from here. I live pretty far away so I would need to make the deal over the phone or internet before I drove there. I realize they would have to drive my trade in before the deal was sealed. But we could at least get the ball rolling. Right? No......I made innitial contact over email via cars.com. Got a call from them while I was in a meeting, I returned the call 15 mins later only to be told by someone I could barely understand that they were busy and would call me back in 10 mins....Excuse me? I understand though he probably had a customer, no biggie. I waited, I wanted this truck bad. 10 mins turned to 1 hour, 1 hour to one day. I waited another day and sent a lengthy email with all my information, my trade in's information, down to the vin#. Still got no response. I guess I wasn't taken seriously. I am currently searching for my Commander somewhere else. The only way I would even consider buying from them would be if I was placed with a more professional salesperson and they shaved 2k off the price after ignoring me like I was a child. That would never happen so this is the bad review they get.

i purchased the 2006 liberty with the Turbo Diesel engine. this is the 2.8L 4-clyinder. i had nothing but problems with this and had to fix all the short commings that chrysler failed to install. for example: 1) chysler never installed a fuel lift pump for the diesel and instead relied on the high pressure injection pump mounted on the engine to suck the fuel from the tank at back of the veichle.... this created vacuum issues and caused air to be sucked in and cause fuel cavitaion issues and engine stalling. Solution: i purchased $100 auxilary fule pump from napa and installed this. 2) chrysler routed the crankcask venilation back into the tubo instake... Problem: all oil vapers are condense in the intercooler and cause blockage of intercooler and cause engine to starve of air and smoke like hell due to wrong air/fuel mixture. Solution: cost me $500 to have intercooler replaced. then install a hose to vent crankcase vapers to atmosphere. 3) the fule filter is only 10 micron rating...not fine enough for the CRD injectors...Problem: fine particles pass right through the fuel filer and destroy the injector(s) Solution: i had to purchase all 4 new idiesle injectors at $800 each ..YES!!! $3200 for new injectors before tax and labor!! AND ..chrysler is the only provider of these injectors because nobody else in america sells these parts! 4) the engine threw a rod and punched hole in motor block and seized up at 151,000 miles. Solution: junkyard chrysler abandoned all the jeep liberty owners... DONT EVER BUY A JEEP LIBERTY....YOU WILL REGET THIS DECISION AS I DID. Learn this from me... Update 2016...damn engine threw a rod punched hole in the engine block. Only 150000 miles! Damn piece of shit chrysler is siting behind my garage for 6mos now. Diesel engine to ecpensive to buy even used is $3800 from LKQ.

Love this Jeep...

I was a jeep lover until I bought this jeep. Slows down from 55 , jerks stutters will not accelerate. Acts as if its going to just stop. Took it in for recall of tow hitch and catching on fire. Who wants a car that hesitates, will not accelerate without reason. More people will get killed. Had to wait for engine code replaced coil pack, tuned up, engine light comes on then drops code. Abs anti skid, eps warning lights on, replaced radiator. Cooling fan, brales, tires. Sensors. Over $2500 in a month. Scared to drive it I've replaced the regulator and the other replaced before I bought it.

Still in love

Update 8/9/16: Hit 226k miles this past weekend. Something I didn't realize was a thing with Liberties is a bad sensor in the gas tank. I thought it had to do with the flap that covers the opening to the gas tank falling off, but other people have reported not being able to fill the tank without gas spurting back out. No recall for it, even though there should've been. I just make sure not to put more than 16 gallons in at a time when it's low, and I don't have a problem. I bought my Liberty in Feb '07 with 54 miles on her. She's now at 162K miles, and I've only had to replace a rear control arm and the right rear passenger side window motor up until recently. The left rear window just crapped out a couple of months ago, and I'm about to replace my water pump and fix a leak in the evap system, but after 6.5 yrs, I can't complain. She's been the most reliable vehicle I ever owned. Took a hit from a light rail train that clipped my driver's side sideview mirror. It didn't even take the arm off, only the mirror itself popped out! A freaking train! I was in an accident in Dec and begged my insurance not to total her. So yeah, I love my Liberty.

I have had my Jeep Liberty for 5 years, I have had to have my air conditioner fixed 3 times. The windows have dropped 5 times, there was a recall on some jeeps in 2006, bad luck for mine did not make that cut, I now have 2 windows broken and don't have 700.00 to fix them.Too bad say's Jeep, The back seat is covered in stains,because of a the type of material used . I will never buy another car from Jeep, and very sorry I bought the one Im stuck with.

I have had this vehicle for 3 years, in that time I have spent over 5,000 dollars just in repairs. The rear windows both have fallen off, that is about 350. each time. I have had the air conditioning, heat, transmission, misc electrical and switches fixed. The fabric that they use for the seats is horrid. It stains instantly, even if you drip water on it you cant get the stain out. The seats are uncomfortable and there is not much backseat room.

I owned my 2006 Jeep Liberty for 4 years and I had nothing but problems. I just sold it and have never been happier to be rid of it. It saw the garage once a month. It is very hard on brakes, tires, the calipers continually seize and I can't tell you how many times I've driven around with a smoking wheel and the smell of burned rubber in the car. It blew fuses, had to have the back springs replaced, it sometimes will not start.....never, ever again.

I bought a Jeep Liberty 2006 brand new, I have replaced the windows regulators about 6 times for the rear windows, spending about $200.00 each time, and still Chrysler do not have a recall for the cheapest windows regulators ever made out of plastic, then the gear shifter light went off and I thought I could fix it replacing a fuse. The dealer told me they didn't have a fix for that so they have to replace the whole shifter. WHAT? I just leave it like that and then the interiors handlers in each door came off when I tried to close the door that after several months of use. It runs great and I haven't have any major problems with the engine but Chrysler used the cheapest materials ever.

I bought a used one with 10,000 miles. I immediatley started having trouble with the windows. I paid a $100 deductable six times to have this problem fixed, and it has never been fully resolved. My back driver's side window is now being held up this a suction cup purchased at harbor freight for 5.99. The 5.99 suction cup has served me much better then anyone at Jeff Wyler, Ft. Thomas. I have yet to be reimbursed from Chrysler for my previous expenses and Jeff Wyler wants to charge me $80 to look at the problem to see if it will be covered by the extended warranty now offered due to the problem. Every window part should be included for this car due to the inconvenience. Don't buy the 2006!

Looks great has a lot of problems.

The car has issues. The windows always fail. It always has recalls and my key will not come out of the ignition. When my air condition is on it makes a horrible noise. I went to turn the other day and there was a loud bang then it stopped turning (serious safety hazard) now it keeps happening. The transmission is also making weird noises. I wish i would have never got it. My other jeep was great. The car looks nice but it is terrible. if i could afford to make the thousand in repairs i would but now there is no use to for down in this downwards spiral Chrysler calls a car.

I've been a Jeep owner for many years. After my 3rd Cherokee started showing signs of old age, I traded it in for a pre-owned 2006 Liberty Limited. When the Liberty's first came out, I didn't like the design, but it has grown on me. (I still compare the Liberty to the Cherokee, as you'll see). Everything seems intended specifically for convenience and space efficiency, well done Jeep! I also test-drove the new 2008 body style which I didnt feel was built as solidly as the original Liberty body style-- somehow felt cheaper and flimsy, like a bad rental car.

Loving It!

I traded in my little Mazda for the Jeep Liberty Limited and am loving it! I was worried about handling and parking a bigger SUV, but it maneuvers just as easily as a small car. Great styling, a very attractive, no-nonsense Jeep. I have the leather interior with the sunroof, and it's beautiful. Still looks like new and feels solid. I'm so happy with it and can't wait to take it up to the snow.

I have had this car for a little while now, and I have to say I still am in love with it!.... The design, how high up I am is amazing. This is my first SUV and I couldnt be happier with my choice. The 4x4 is great, I love selec tracs, hate when they are all time 4x4. The stearing handles on a dime and so far my windows have not given me and issue but I did get extended warrenty just incase. For how little it looks from the outside the interior gives the driver and all the passengers plenty of leg room. All around I do love this car, the only thing I wish it had was a sunroof.

I went from a 2 door sunfire and loved it but wanted one of these jeeps since they came out! the gas mileage is what i expected, the 4x4 is a bear in the snow. the four doors is what i missed the most. so far i enjoy the jeep and hope it keeps up.

I purchased this Jeep barely 8 months after it was originally purchased and I have had something break on it pretty much every 6 months. I have had to replace the spring tensioner on the fan belt, 2 rear window regulators, the linkage and park mechanism on the steering column, pressure valves etc. Its only 4 years old! It has been fun to drive but I am seriously disappointed with all of the repairs that I have had to make. I owned a Japanese car for 10 years and never ever had any trouble like this. All these repairs have cost me at least another year in car payments and I am absolutely disgusted with Chrysler's manufacturing and customer service regarding this product.

Congratulations to Daimler Chrysler for selling a piece of junk that looks and performs like something you'd find in the third world. I intend to get results from customer service, or the CEO and board of directors WILL be receiving some very nasty, frequent communications until this is made right for us.

I purchased my 2006 3.7 Sport 4WD with full knowledge that the window problem would occur and it did a few weeks after I bought mine. Instead of letting the dealership suck me dry of cash I purchased new steel window internal parts to replace the hideous stock plastic parts that will fail every month. Chrysler knows this but will never admit the parts are junk. Other than that and marginal gas mileage this Jeep does everything a Jeep should do. It pulls a 20' travel trailer, it's great off-road, looks good and feels like a real work SUV. People who complain about ride quality probably should have bought a car based SUV this Jeep rides firm and tough because it is built for work.

I purchased the car new 4 years ago, there's less than 60k miles. I have replaced 4 window regulators and motors, and now 3 more broke. That's an average of 1 every 6 months. The electrical system constantly shorts out and of course nothing is under warranty. The dealership won't stand behind their product, nor will the manufacturer. I will never buy another vehicle made by this manufacturer!

I purchased my Liberty new and within the first year had to replace the back window motors twice. Now, since Chrysler seems to think customer service is not a priority, both back windows are held up by coat hangers. I like to take long trips and it is the most uncomfortable car. I am sad because I owned a Jeep Wrangler in '96 and loved it! I will NEVER purchase a Chrysler automobile EVER!

So, I took my 2006 Jeep Liberty to the dealer on 09/09/2010 because the front driver's side window regulator is shot. Cost me $595 to repair a problem that Jeep knows about. In fact, I was told they redesigned the regulator, and they put the newly- designed regulator in my Jeep. Why do I have to pay for something that Jeep knows was improperly designed? Jeep will not recall the vehicles because the regulator is not a "safety issue". I'm now waiting to hear from Jeep's customer service as to whether I'm going to get reimbursed. This is very poor customer relations at the least. Jeep should be replacing these regulators for free.

I love driving my jeep, however all my windows have torn up and the 2 back windows I can't afford to replace because they cost to much. The driver side I had fixed 3 times within 6 mos of buying the car and the passenger car i have had replaced only once so far. The interior or upholstery is terrible. Anything stains it and will not clean. If I had to do over I would not have ever bought this car because it is poorly designed and cost to much to fix the regulators. I also am surprised they haven't recalled this jeep and admitted their mistake.

Replaced 3 regulators under warranty, and 1 after warranty. Because they changed the design (yet, they didn't improve it), it requires the window to be replaced too. Total bill is about $800 per incident, and it's a repair that has to be repeated every once in a while for each window. I'm up to my 6th regulator being broken, 3 under warranty, 1 at my cost, and 2 that I decided not to fix (a stick was placed inside the door to keep the window from falling). I've only got 4 years and 65000 miles on it. Interior is very plain. Don't expect storage space. The manufacturer's manual doesn't even fit in the very small glove box. I can't believed I got taken that way.

I'm a big fan of the Jeep brand, especially Liberty and Wrangler. This is my first Jeep and I'm considering buying a Wrangler in the future. What I like about this car is its exterior design, sleek, bold, and different. It's a SUV 4WD but it doesn't look heavy or clumsy. The overall performance is good, but start to have some mysterious rattling sound recently. However, its power window system is a disaster. The regulator for the same window has broken five times and now the door is falling apart.

I very seldom put the back window down or up and the driver side rear window has already been replaced because it would not stay up. The seat cover is so bad to stain even water will leave a spot. Now I am hearing a loud noise from the rear end and was told that people are having to replace the rear end and that all the dealer wants to do is change fluids until the warranty in gone then the rear end has to be replaced. This is not good. Has any one else had a problem with the rear end going out on the Jeep Liberty?

Oh my God, what do we have to do for Chrysler to recall these window regulators. I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty I bought used in 10-2008 and by 3-2009 my drivers side window went out and less then 1 week later the passenger back window went out. Just to find out that when the warranty company approved the regulators they would not approve the windows. Yes, the new regulator do not fit the old windows so they have to be replace too. After talking and complaning for a week they finally agreed to pay for the windows. Well lord and behold now my drivers side back window went out this weekend. How many more complaints will Chrysler need to recall these Window Regulators. (Frustrated)

I have owned this jeep liberty for two years. I have always wanted a jeep until now! My windows keep dropping from poorly designed window regulators, the a/c sucks, has a lot of road noise, and the interior is a stain magnet! I am very particular about the inside of my car and rain drops from just getting in the car stain the seats! I don't know what kind of fabric this is but it's awful! All of these problems are also very expensive to fix! The outside looks nice but the gray cloth seats are another story!

Well Built?

Since buying the Jeep Liberty, I've enjoyed certain qualities of the vehicle and have cringed at others. The engine is unrefined and sluggish when accelerating. Sometimes when accelerating, if I hit a bump in the road...the car feels like it hits a dead zone and misses. Very bizarre? As an off-road vehicle its great but the poor interior design, annoying squeaks from the dash and caveman engine, it's really not an overall good experience. I purchase the vehicle for the wrong reasons which at the time was off-road capability and looks. Both of those qualities hold up over the time I've owned the Jeep (3 years), but the poor fit & finish, squeaks and overall cheap build is disappointing.

Fun to drive but...

I bought a Jeep Liberty 2006 brand new, I love it but the window regulators went bad like 2 times in the back windows, the door handle inside got broke, went to the dealer they told me it cost about $500.00 for a new door panel, and the seats? omg i hate them even water will create a spot on them. other than that everything is fine.

I bought my Liberty 4 months ago and I put about 8000 miles on it so far. I have not had any trouble with the Jeep. The seats are horrible at getting stained, even water will leave noticible stains. It's not a luxury ride, somewhat rough seats while driving. I haven't had any trouble with the windows (knock on wood). The only maintenence I have done is oil changes.

Minor cons But the Pros outweigh con

The windows have been a chronic problem since I purchased the Liberty. The first regulator failed within a few months. Since we have replaced the passenger side front 3 times and all others at least once. The last fix being an untinted window, however Jeep has developed a new fastening system for the regulator that should be more reliable. I wish they would recall and replace the others. All replacements have been covered by extended warranty, however another window failed this weekend, I'm waiting to hear their solution. Regarding stains on the cloth seats. Since the first week the seats have been stained (rain stained the seat when I opened the rear door to get the groceries).

This is my third jeep. I bought a 2006 liberty because they didn't make the Cherokee sport (the boxy one) any more and I had 2 of those. I don't like this car and no more jeeps for me. The window regulators have been fixed 4 times, the seats are all water stained and professionally cleaning them didn't help and did I mention the blind spots? Chrysler is in the toilet and they don't want to recall the regulators or clean the seats for no charge. Chrysler needs loyal jeep owners like me and this is how they treat us?

I bought this '06 with 39k miles, in 02/10 and planned to give it to my daughter in the fall when she goes off to college. I put 700 miles on it and WHAM the back window fell inside the door. Research tells me that a lot of people have had the same problem. My old Nissan was 9 years old with 160K miles and the windows never had a problem. Jeep, MAN UP AND RECALL THES VEHICLES. I do not feel that it is secure or safe for my daughter. Anyone could open the widows without a problem. I am going to fix it and unload it on some unsuspecting chump, like me. I know I'll loose 1K to 2K bucks. But it's crap, I can't keep it. So much for buy American. 1st (last) American car in over 10 yrs.

I bought this Jeep a year and a half ago. It had 13000 miles and has been nothing but trouble. The window mounts break and the windows fall down into the doors(all four of them did this!) The light fuses burn out constantly and I can't keep up with replacing them. The anti-slip warning comes on on dry ground and the four- wheel drive kicks on when there's nothing to slip on! It has been one problem after another with this vehicle. After 28,000 miles it has been in the shop with so many problems, including expensive new shocks that I will not ever recommend this car to anyone. I'm getting rid of it as soon as I can and never looking back at this very expensive and poorly made Jeep.

The window regulators are a constant problem. They have been fixed five times in four years and Chrysler refuses to issue a recall even though I have found thousands of complaints about this on other sites.

My 1st Jeep was a Wrangler, then had a 2002 Liberty Limited, then a 2006 Liberty Limited. I'm looking to buy a 2010 Liberty Limited because I'm so happy with these Jeeps. It pulls a 15' boat/trailer in the mountains. I load kayaks on the top and 4-wheel it the rivers. I go skiing in the winter. The low gas mileage is a trade off for the muscle the Jeep has.

I purchased the diesel model to get better mileage, am happy with the vehicle with the exception of the window mechanism. Each window regulator has failed at least once and had been replaced while still under warranty. The driver side rear modulator has been replaced twice and now failed for the 3rd time (now no longer under warranty). This is crazy, these regulators are way overdue for a recall, shame on you Jeep! This is my third jeep in in the last 10 years, and probably my last.

Bought my jeep and love it. I get awesome mileage. The only complaints I have are the windows oh and the cd player broke about a month after I bought it. Well I had to replace one of the passenger window regulators already and after reading all these consumer reviews I seriously don't want to deal with another regulator going out. I'd rather spend my day off from work and school having fun instead of waiting for my jeep's windows to be repaired. There should definitely be a recall. Soon!!!

I bought my pre-owned Liberty, never having owned one before. I am so happy I made the purchase. It hasn't disappointed. I live in a heavy snow area of the country and this vehicle handles like a champion. It especially rolls in 4x4. I put too many miles on it annually, but will drive it until it falls apart. It could get better fuel economy for a small SUV. I was concerned about buying it because of what I had heard about Grand Cherokees and Durangos, but I am very satisfied so far. Great vehicle.

I purchased this vehicle for my mother June of 2006. Since having purchased this vehicle my husband has replaced the window regulators on 3 of the 4 windows 3 times already. Recently the driver side window regulator went out, and he went to the dealership to purchase another one and was told that he would not only have to purchase the regulator but a new window due to a new design that Chrysler came up to prevent this from happening. It went from being $75.00 to now $300.00 to replace this part. This is ridiculous, you either buy groceries or fix the window. And the gas mileage isn't great either for a 3.7 Liter small vehicle. Not to mention the noise that it makes when driving on the HWY.

I've had my jeep since 2006. I've had to replace 3 window regulators already and now the fourth has gone out. The regulators should have been recalled and fixed. I called to get a price on a new regulator and it's gone from 64.00 to 167.00 for the part which is ridiculous! I went through 4-5 recalls the first year I had this vehicle. I did really want to have a jeep now I can't wait to get rid of it. I will NEVER buy another jeep! What was supposedly once a great vehicle to have has become a cheaply made piece of crap. I've heard from so many people that they've had the same problems with the windows! Plus now my vehicle is only worth half of what I still owe on it. Horrible resale value!

I own the Renegade model with the six speed manual transmission. I purchased this model to tow behind my motorhome. At 35,000 miles I started having problems with the ABS, ESP and related display light. I would be driving down the freeway and these lights would display and force the brake system to respond as if I were on a slippery road condition. I was not in that situation. I live in Arizona where most days are dry and hot. Naturally I took in to the dealership where it was purchased and explained what had happened. The first occurrence was in 2007. It's now 2009. During these two years the dealership has made fourteen attempts to correct this problem. The lights still come on.

I love my little Liberty. Its fun to drive, very comfortable, and is handles very nicely. That said, I hate that both rear window regulators have gone out. I currently am holding them up with tape as money has been a little tight. They stopped working within 2 months of each other. They could at least make it where they get stuck closed. I worry someone is going to either rob my Jeep or take it outright when I park it somewhere.

I was excited about the purchase of my Jeep, until, yup the rear, then front passenger side window fell! I've had them repaired/replaced 4x. I even wrote to the BBB concerning this safety issue. I am lucky to be under warranty and I have to laugh at all the Duct Tape users that own a Jeep Liberty (been there, done that!) Recently my map lights wouldn't go off and rather than drain my battery until I could get to my Dealer for repair, we disconnected the lights..well, that cost me $124 when someone could have told me, lady, check the switch! The manual was no help (showed other schematics, not one of mine!)

I miss my Jeep!

I LOVED this SUV - just totaled it and I'm not sure what to do next. I had no problems at all with my car. The mileage was annoying, but better than my big van. It was a comfortable and peppy ride, lots of fun to drive under any conditions. Spend the extra money for the leather seats. Buffetting noise was an issue, but often is a problem in SUV's. I had no mechanical issues at all - just changed the oil and that was about it. My ownership was brief - 2 years - but it was great. Oh - the airbag deployed with force - broke my wrist - but I had no other injuries.
