You'll Like The 2011 Jeep Liberty If...

If you enjoy the Jeep brand and its outdoorsy image, and appreciate a footprint easy to handle both at the mall and on the trail, the Liberty constitutes one of the better on-road/off-road compromises. And with two trail rated 4WD systems - Command-Trac II and Selec-Trac II - you can climb any mountain, ford any stream.

A reliable vehicle with minor issues and repairs through years of heavy use.

Runs smoothly, clean acceleration, aesthetically pleasing interior and exterior, some replacements had to be made in the water pump, brake pads and rotors, and tires but I attribute that to wear and tear. Otherwise excellent vehicle. Two strange malfunctions: front left window is off its rotor and has trouble closing. Back left door may not lock or unlock with the rest of the vehicle.

Jeep liberty is a very good family car.

Is a great vehicle it has great performance, also is great for family trips but the a. C. Is not that good. Has Bluetooth and is very reliable on the road when making long trips. Easy to understand and use my mom is old and she is in love with the car. It has a little problem in the charging port when trying to connect the GPS but aside of that is a great car to buy.

Jeep liberty 2011, spacious very comfortable and very reliable.

I love my vehicle. There has been no problems, it is great for summer and winter. It includes 4 wheel drive and that is perfect for snow. The car itself is very durable. The car is very comfortable and has great features such as a sun roof. It also is great for camping. It is very spacious and the gasoline runs better than other cars who use up a lot.

SOME OF THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE BEEN BUILT WITH A MISSING OR INCORRECTLY INSTALLED STEERING COLUMN PIVOT RIVET.
Consequence:
A MISSING OR INCORRECTLY INSTALLED RIVET COULD COMPROMISE THE ABILITY OF THE STEERING COLUMN TO SUPPORT THE OCCUPANT LOADS IN THE EVENT OF A FRONTAL CRASH, DECREASING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE FRONTAL IMPACT SAFETY SYSTEM. AS A RESULT, THE CONDITION MAY INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR INJURY IN A FRONTAL CRASH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR RIVET PRESENCE AND ALIGNMENT AND REPAIR THE STEERING COLUMN PIVOT AS REQUIRED, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JUNE 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.

Electrical over-stress of a resistor in the occupant restraint control module may lead to the non-deployment of the active head restraints during a rear impact collision.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating the deployment of the active head restraints , their non-deployment could increase the risk of injury.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will flash the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N38.

Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2012 Jeep Liberty and 2012-2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger vehicles. A component within the occupant restraint controller (ORC) may fail and prevent the active headrests from deploying in the event of a rear-end crash.
Consequence:
If the active headrests do not deploy in certain rear-end crashes, the front seat occupants have an increased risk of injury.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ORC as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 29, 2017. Owners may contact FCA customer service at 1-800-853-1403. FCA's number for this recall is T56.
