Jeep Liberty Ball Joint Recall - Possible Accidents & Rollovers

Jeep Liberty Ball Joint Recall

On August 1, 2006 Chrysler Group recalled 832,000 Jeep Liberty sport utility vehicles because of the potential loss of steering control. The front suspension lower ball joint might experience excessive wear and looseness, causing the ball joint to separate. The recall affects all Jeep Liberty SUVs from the 2002-2006 model years.

The Jeep Liberty complaints concern 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.
