laundry list of issues with Liberty..
Hi all, new here -
I have a 2011 Liberty Sport that I got in Dec 2011. I had a 2000 Cherokee that I had purchased new & owned until a d-bag semi driver ran me off the road, causing me to roll the vehicle at 60 mph. I came out of it with bumps, bruises, & a pretty nasty concussion but nothing serious - I'm convinced that in another vehicle, I wouldn't have been so lucky. The vehicle was totalled, unfortunately, and I still miss it.
Anyway, to my question(s). I was under the gun to get a new vehicle & found a 2011 Liberty that had been a rental. Was "certified used" so I felt comfortable getting it even though it was a rental. I'm starting to think that was a mistake. Since I got the vehicle..
Cruise Control works sporadically. When it doesn't turn on, nothing will make it work except turning the car off & then back on (not practical while going down the road..). Dealership has looked at it several times, replaced the steering wheel control, "flashed" the system - still having the problem. They told me they don't know what to do next.
Clock on radio loses 3-4 minutes per week. I was told this is a "known issue" but there's no fix. Dealership's solution - "use your phone to check the time".
When I back out of the driveway, going from reverse to drive I hear a series of "clunks" (about 5-6 times), then it stops. Only does it when going from reverse to drive. Dealership took it for a drive, didn't hear it so said there's nothing they can do.
Worst, in the last week or two, occasionally when I start the car, it will start, the engine revs to about 4000 rpms for 1-2 seconds, then dies. After it does this, it won't start. After I leave it for 10 minutes or so, it starts. I haven't had it in for this issue yet, but I'm about ready to bring it back to the dealer & leave it there.
Has anyone else experienced any of these things, and if so - found solutions?
thanks in advance!!
