2010 Liberty in the shop...

Dropped the Liberty off at the shop yesterday due to heater not warming up.

Also need to readdress the rear window leak.

Extended Warranty = Dodge Charger to drive until it's ready.

Speaking of heat...after doing some research is it correct that we have to use special coolant in our Liberty's.

HOAT Coolant ?

Yes use HOAT(hybrid organic additive technology)only.This helps stops corrosion.This is good for 5 yrs/100K.

My heater sometimes, will not warm up. I researched it and I reset the PCM and warms up rightaway now.

The driver's side rear window, I can hear road noise. I turned up the a/c, and with the doors and window closed tightly, I could not "feel" any a'c coming from the door or window. Aw well the music downs out the road noise

Thanks for the info.

Yes I get a little road noise from the rear window on the passenger side as well...makes me think it's not rolled up all the way but when I check...yep it's up all the way. Yep I play my music sorta loud so that takes care of it for me too.

I just got a call and my vehicle is ready. They left a voicemail just now stating that a loose connection on the blower was the reason and it's now heating up to 148 degrees and as far as the leak on the rear window they stated that it was 'pinch well' or 'pinch weld' (?) and that was taken care of and resealed and that they ran it thru the high pressure car wash 5 times and shows no leaks so hopefully all is good.

The warranty...I'll have to look at my paperwork to see exactly what it's called and the price. I had it included when I bought the vehicle last February. I don't really like extended warranty's but this one 'seemed' solid so I got it and must admit that the few times I've had it in the shop it was nice rolling out with a rental at no cost to me. So far...so good.

I guess I'll be buying a little 'HOAT' coolant to have on hand in case I need some. They don't seem to stock that stuff in every autoparts store around here. I also have a little Neon SRT4 that the wife drives that also has the HOAT coolant in it.

I have the opposite problem with the heat. Mine get up to desert like temps asap. Not that I mind it though .

Have noticed what seems to be like a leak in my rear window though..Didnt want to be a bigger pain than I was already being when I went into the shop this week.

The warranty you bought, was it the lifetime one?? They offered it to me for $1800 when I bought it, and I kind of regret not getting it.
