Summary of Complaint

12/8/2020: MY DAUGHTER HAD JUST RETURNED HOME FROM COLLEGE LITERALLY THAT MORNING DRIVING THROUGH NYC TO DE. THAT AFTERNOON SHE WENT OUT TO SEE A FRIEND AND THOUGHT SHE HAD A FLAT TIRE WHILE DRIVING AT ABOUT 50 MPH AND STRUGGLED TO PULL OVER. IT WAS AT NIGHT SO WE COULDN'T SEE THE DAMAGE. WE CALLED AAA TO COME CHANGE THE TIRE. HE EXAMINED THE FLUID UNDER THE TIRE AND THEN IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT TIRE ROD FELL AND PUNCTURED THE TIRE. WE COULD ALSO SEE A LONG BLACK TRAIL WHERE THE TIRE ROD DRAGGED ON THE ROAD BEFORE SHE COULD STOP. THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER SAID IF SHE DIDN'T STOP WHEN SHE DID SHE WOULD HAVE FELL INTO THE DEEP DITCH NEXT TO IT AND IT WOULD HAVE FLIPPED OVER. CONSIDERING IT WAS DARK SHE WAS LUCKY AND EVEN LUCKIER THIS DIDN'T HAPPEN ON THE HIGHWAY IN NYC ONLY A FEW HOURS EARLIER. BUT WHAT WAS EVEN MORE DISTURBING IS THE FRONT UPPER AND LOWER CONTROL ARMS WERE JUST REPLACE THE REAR LOWER CONTROL ARMS DUE TO CORROSION WAS DONE AT THE DEALER, ALONG WITH AN ALIGNMENT. (NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 18V278000). IT'S CLEAR THAT THE RECALL SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE REPLACING THE FRONT CONTROL ARMS. THE WINDOW REGULATOR ALSO FAILED THE WEEK BEFORE.

THE WINDOWS IN MY JEEP ARE FALLING DOWN. IN 2011, EACH WINDOW FELL DOWN. I WOULD PARK MY JEEP AND THE NEXT MORNING THE WINDOW WAS DOWN. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY REPAIRED THE FIRST WINDOW. THEN THE NEXT WINDOW FELL DOWN AND AGAIN THEY REPAIRED THAT ONE. THEY MADE ME WAIT FOR THE NEXT TO WINDOWS TO FALL DOWN ONE AT A TIME AND REPAIRED THEM. NOW MY WINDOWS ARE FALLING DOWN AGAIN. ON 9/6/2015 MY WINDOW FELL DOWN DURING THE NIGHT. I JUST HAD IT REPAIRED ON 9/10/2015. I NOTIFIED DAIMLER CHRYSLER CORPORATION. THEY RESPONDED, THAT UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS MY PROBLEM AND THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO. IT WILL COST ME 174.43 FOR EACH WINDOW REGULATOR LIFT PLATE TO BE FIXED. I MUST HAVE MY WINDOWS FIXED. I CAN NOT PARK MY JEEP SOMEWHERE AND HAVE THE WINDOWS FALL DOWN. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE, I FEEL IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.

Summary of Complaint

I HAD A RECALL REPAIR AFTER I RECEIVED THE LETTER IN THE MAIL SO I WENT AND HAD IT SERVICED AFTER I WAITED FOR THE BACKORDER. I HAD THE REAR LOWER SUSPENSION ARMS DONE AS IN THE RECALL AT SECRET CITY DODGE IN OAK RIDGE TN. I IMMEDIATELY NOTICED A WEIRD CREAKING NOISE COMING FROM THE REAR AND I TOOK IT BACK AND EXPLAINED TO THEM AND THEY SAID THEY COULD FIND NOTHING. I BROUGHT IT TO ANOTHER SHOP AND HAD THEM INSPECT AND THEY SAID THAT THEY DIDN'T TORQUE THEM RIGHT AND THE NOISE WAS FROM FAULTY PARTS. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY AGAIN SAID NOTHING WAS WRONG AND THEY SPRAYED SOME LUBRICANT ON THE BUSHINGS TO QUIET THE NOISE. IT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING AND MADE ME QUESTION WHY THEY HAD TO DO THAT IF THE PARTS WERE NEW. I TOOK IT IN AGAIN AND THEY AGAIN SENT ME DOWN THE ROAD. WELL AS TIME WENT ON I WAS HAVING MORE PROBLEMS WITH STEERING AND HAVE BEEN TO TO OTHER SHOPS AND HAD BALL JOINTS ALL REPLACED AND EVERY SHOP SAID THAT THE REAR SUSPENSION ARMS WERE NOT GOOD AND I JUST WENT TODAY (JAN 23,2020) AND AND IT LOOKED AT BY A LOCAL REPUTABLE SHOP WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE THE STEERING IS OUT OF CONTROL.. THEY SHOWED ME IN THE BAY WITH MY CAR UP AND THE BACK WHEELS MOVE FORWARD AND BACKWARD BECAUSE OF THE BAD BUSHINGS IN THE LOWER CONTROL ARMS THAT WERE REPLACED BY SECRET CITY DEALERSHIP. THEY ALSO SAID THEY NEED TO BE REPAIRED ASAP AND I GOT THAT IN WRITING FROM THEM. I ALSO HAVE FROM A JEEP SPECIALTY SHOP ABOUT HOW THEY WERE INSTALLED WRONG AND HAVE THAT IN WRITING. I DID NOT WANT TO GET THEM REPLACED BY THE SAME DEALERSHIP BECAUSE THEY ARE TERRIBLE WITH CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND COULD CARE LESS ABOUT MY SAFETY. I TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF MY VEHICLE AND IT HASN'T EVER BEEN IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE. I USE IT TO DRIVE LOCALLY AND THAT IS IT. I HAVE CALLED NFSTA SEVERAL TIMES AND AM WAITING FOR A RESPONSE FROM THEM. PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS I DON'T FEEL SAFE DRIVING IT. NOT MY FAULT

AS YOU'RE ALL AWARE ABOUT THE CONSTANT AND PREDICTABLE WINDOW REGULATOR FAILURE ON PRETTY MUCH ALL JEEP LIBERTY'S CONTINUES TO THIS DAY. I REALIZE THE WARRANTY HAS BEEN EXTENDED AN ADDITIONAL SEVEN YEARS BUT THE REPLACEMENT PART HASN'T BEEN UPGRADED. MY JEEP HAS APPROXIMATELY 30,000 MILES ON IT AND THEY HAVE BEEN REPLACED OVER FIFTEEN TIMES. GRANTED THE WARRANTY PAID FOR ABOUT HALF OF THEM BUT I'M DISABLED AND LIVING ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND CAN'T AFFORD THIS DEFECT MUCH LONGER. I THOUGHT ABOUT SELLING IT BECAUSE IT'S OTHERWISE FLAWLESS HOWEVER, WORDS HAS GOTTEN AROUND AND THE RESALE I'M TOLD IS ABOUT 1,500 DOLLARS. AT THE MOMENT TWO OF MY WINDOWS ARE TAPED CLOSED. IF I HAD TO PAY FOR ALL THE REGULATORS THAT FAILED IT WOULD'VE COST APPROXIMATELY 9,000 DOLLARS. SINCE THE 7 YEAR EXTENSION HAS NOW EXPIRED I USUALLY HAVE TO REPLACE ONE ABOUT EVERY 3-4 MONTHS. AND, I ONLY PUT LESS THAN 1000 MILES A YEAR ON MINE. I MOST LIKELY WOULD HAVE TRADED IT IN FOR A NEW ONE BUT BECAUSE JEEP DECIDED THE MONEY THEY MADE WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN CUSTOMER LOYALTY COUNT ME OUT AND THE MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE AWARE OF MY SITUATION FEEL THE SAME. I'M SURE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS SEVERAL MILLION TIMES BY NOW MY COMPLAINT WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO YOUR SPAM MAIL FOLDER. DO AS YOU PLEASE AND ME AND EVERYONE WHO'S AWARE OF THIS WILL DO THE SAME.
