Chrysler has recalled 2004-05 Jeep Liberties because the lower control arms that keep the rear wheels in place may break. The 209,724 Liberties were built from July 3, 2003 through July 14, 2005 and were originally bought in and now are registered in Salt Belt states, NHTSA defines these states as Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C. The build date is on the plate by the drive door.
The problem is that some are fitted with rear lower control arms that can rust through and break, causing a loss of control of the vehicle and a potential crash. Chrysler says that it has 83 complaints of control arm fractures, but that it knows of no accidents or injuries. Chrysler will notify owners starting by the end of April and replace the arms. You can call Chrysler for more information at 800-853-1403 or call NHTSA’s safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
