Re: Liberty Renengade
Hi. I also own an '03 Renegade and have also just discovered problems with my roof carrier. We noticed it was vibrating from 40mph and above. It has made a rivet into the paint all the way down to the primer. I called the service manager at our dealer and took it in today. Apparently, there is supposed to be a piece of foam cushion that was not put on ours...therefore, the source of the problem. This is the first he has seen but he said he'll be expecting more to come. This is under warranty so call your dealer and get it checked out! My dealership placed a piece of foam to keep it from doing more damage, ordered a replacement part for the roof carrier, ordered foam and will repaint the damaged parts.
The way I look at it is that this is a major investment I have made and she is my baby. The service manager is the key to getting things done. He doesn't think this is just a fluke. This is the first year for this roof carrier so there may be more problems.
Take care and good luck.
