Stem valves are defective. The sky slider stopped working. I contacted Chrysler and they did not want to help. If you search or the reviews everyone has the same issues. Therefore, they should take responsibility for their defective mechanisms or the law should get involved and make them fix these issues.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

When driving my car started leaning to the left driver's side. I haven't hit anything or been in a car accident. Anytime I am at a 25+ speed it is more noticeable, and very much so on the highway. Nothing else seems wrong with the car but I'm afraid this may do other damage to the car. As I have been researching for recalls there seem to be others with a similar problem as this.

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.

The contact owns a 2009 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that while driving 55 mph, the tire pressure warning light illuminated as the contact lost control of the vehicle. The contact regained control and moved the vehicle off the roadway where he noticed that the front driver's side tire had failed. The vehicle was towed to a dealer for inspection and they stated that the valve stem was corroded and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 40,000.

I purchased a new Jeep Liberty 2009 in Jun of 2010 in January of 2011 while attempting to put air in the rear tire the TPMS valve stem exploded and shot across the garage. In September of 2011 the TPMS valve stem disintegrated while the car was parked in the garage and shot the parts across the garage both of these where replaced by Chrysler under warranty. On May 21st 2012 while travelling on the highway at 65 the TPMS valve on the rear tire disintegrated and caused immediate loss of air from the rear tire, causing the vehicle to become unstable, I was able to control it and drive the vehicle to the side of the road. On inspection the valve was completely gone. This valve is being replaced by Chrysler but now as the vehicle is outside of warranty I have to foot the bill. I have driven hundreds of thousands of miles over the last 23 years and have never had any issues with tire valve stems to have 3 such major failures over 2 years and the last one on the highway which could have led to a serious accident. It appears that there is a design flaw with the TPMS valves being used by Chrysler on this age of vehicle and from what I have seen on car forums this seems to be the case for many Chrysler group vehicle owners with TPMS systems.
