Defective Jeep Liberty Ball Joint
Chrysler Group has recalled 832,000 Jeep Liberty sport utility vehicles because of the potential loss of steering control. The Jeep Liberty front suspension lower ball joint might experience excessive wear and looseness, causing the ball joint to separate causing an accident or rollover. The Jeep Liberty ball joint recall affects all Jeep Liberty SUVs from the 2002-2006 model years.
This ball joint recall came after many Jeep Liberty complaints concerning the ball joint failing, which causes the vehicle's front end to drop onto one or both of the front tires and could result in a rollover accident or wreck. This is not the first Jeep Liberty recall. Over 300,000 Jeep Liberty were recalled in 2002-2003 Liberty vehicles in November 2003 because of problems with the ball joints.
