Recall: 137,000 More Jeep Libertys for Suspension Fracture
Nearly 347,000 SUVs are now affected.
A potential fracture of the arm could cause a "decrease in rear suspension stability," which could cause a skid or crash. Jeep dealers will replace the control arms, whether rusted or not, on all affected vehicles starting in July. Customers can call Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403 for more details.
In March, Chrysler recalled nearly 210,000 Liberty models from 2004 and 2005 but has since found that other Liberty models from 2006 and 2007 are also at risk. The total affected vehicle count, composed only of those sold or registered in "Salt Belt" states and Washington, D.C., comes to 346,900 units. Honda also recalled 1,300 CR-V models in March for a front lower control arm that could break at the welds.
I love my jeep liberty! 279,000 plus miles on it and it has never once broken down!
BEST JEEP EVER!
I WISH the foreign junk I've owned was as reliable and durable as the three Jeeps I've owned over the years. My current one is about to turn over 200,000 miles.
When you know how they are built you will buy something else, doesnt make any difference what brand it is! Nothing is like it used to be or built to last...... now they want them to break down so you buy something new to keep them in business!
