Went I bought my Jeep 5 months ago I was told new tires were put on my car, however my low tire light keeps going on....I checked over and over the pressure in tires was all good, even had garage check them they found nothing. So when I took the Jeep back to the dealer they took me there was a small leak in the one tire, that the tire pressure censor was bad in all the Jeep Liberty's they fixed the problem in the next model but didn't recall this one. They want me to pay $80 per tire to fix the problem. I can't afford this and I also don't think I should have to pay for it the manufacture or the dealership should pay, but they said they will not. 80 X's 4 = $320. For most people to just come up with that is impossible. And in this case not right.

While driving on I-696 in Michigan at 70 mph with my wife and another person, suddenly my car started to wobble as if I had a flat tire. I slowed down the vehicle and exited the highway at the first off-ramp. I was puzzled because the tires were purchased only a year ago. Pulled into a gas station and discovered that my rear passenger tire was flat and that the air valve was missing. This was memorial day weekend. Aaa roadside service changed the tire. The day after memorial day I took the Jeep into the tire repair store. I needed a new tire and a new air sensor valve stem for the wheel. Upon inspection by the store, it was discovered that the other 3 valve stems were cracked and needed replacing also. These air sensor valve stems are part of the Jeep wheel and in my opinion are defective. They should be good for more than 5 years. I should, at the very least, be reimbursed the money that I had to spend to make my Jeep safe and drivable again, including the new tire.
