    my wife was in an accident in her 2002 bliberty she has had since new, her seat belt did NOT work nor did her air bags inflate, both vehicles were totaled; what is my course of action?

    I can’t believe that the airbags have not been recalled yet. My 2003 Jeep Liberty’s airbag light has been coming and going off continually. Every time I drive it I’m freaked out that the airbag will go off in my face and cause an accident. Five out of the seven accidents that have happened because of the airbags have had injury. Why haven’t they recalled this issue? I am not happy about this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    are they going to recall the 2003 libertys or are they just going to wait until enough people are injured or killed

    i drove a 2002 jeep liberty…i was hit twice in one accident and the air bags NEVER deployed…what do I do?

    The air bags on my 2003 Jeep Liberty fired randomly without external cause on March 19th while driving down a highway near Perth Ontario with my young son. Fortunately my son was not harmed but I suffered a badly sprained wrist and some loss of hearing which may or may not be permanent. The OPP investigated (occurrence #SP12064481). Chrysler refused to accept any responsibility for the malfunction.
