Summary of Complaint

CLUSTER LIGHT CAME ON PRIOR TO HAVING THE RECALL FOR NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 13V282000 COMPLETED. I TOOK IN THE JEEP TO HAVE THE RECALL COMPLETED, BUT IT DID NOT SOLVE THE ISSUE. I WAS INFORMED THAT THE OCCUPANT RESTRAINT MODULE WAS DEFECTIVE, AND NOT COVERED ON THE 2012 JEEP LIBERTY RECALL, ONLY THE 2011. THE ESTIMATED PRICE TO REPLACE THE MODULE IS $580.00. I HAVE SEEN MULTIPLE OTHER REPORTS FROM 2012 JEEP LIBERTY OWNERS WHO ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME ISSUE. I BELIEVE THE RECALL SHOULD BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE THE 2012 MODEL FOR MODULE REPLACEMENT, AND NOT JUST REFLASH.

Summary of Complaint

THE "GATE" LIGHT IN MY JEEP LIBERTY CAME ON WHILE DRIVING AND WOULD NOT GO OFF, EVEN THOUGH EVERYTHING WAS SECURELY SHUT. AS A RESULT, I WAS UNABLE TO LOCK MY VEHICLE BECAUSE THE ALARM WOULD SOUND. THE INTERIOR LIGHTS ALSO STAYED ON DURING THIS TIME, WHICH WAS A HAZARD WHEN DRIVING AT NIGHT AS IT DIRECTLY AFFECTED MY ABILITY TO SEE OUTSIDE MY CAR. I HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH ON THIS ISSUE AND DO SEE THAT IT APPEARS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WHICH MAY BE CAUSED BY FAULTY RUBBER TRIM AROUND THE REAR HATCH WINDOW. THE RUBBER ALLOWS WATER TO GET IN TO THE LATCH AND EVENTUALLY RUINS IT. I RECENTLY HAD THE GATE LATCH ASSEMBLY REPLACED, WHICH DID RESOLVE THE ISSUE,.

Summary of Complaint

THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT WAS ON AND REMAINED ON EVERY TIME THE VEHICLE WAS ON. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE ACTIVE HEAD RESTRAINT BUT THAT THE ISSUE CAUSING THE WARNING LIGHT TO BE ON WAS DUE TO A FAULT ORC CIRCUIT. THE SERVICE ADVISOR INFORMED ME THAT THIS WAS NOT COVERED AND THAT I HAD TO PAY $500 TO HAVE IT REPAIRED. I WENT ONLINE AND NOTICED THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE WITH THIS VEHICLE. SO THE OPTIONS FOR THE CONSUMER IS TO PAY TO HAVE IT FIXED OR RISK YOUR AIRBAG NOT DEPLOYING. THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY CONCERN IF SOMEONE DOES NOT HAVE THE MEANS TO PAY $500 TO REPLACE THE FAULTY CIRCUIT. THIS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A DEFECT AND A RECALL POSTED FOR THIS ORC CIRCUIT.
