Jeep Liberty Recall Expands to 347,000 Units

Adding to an already-existant recall, the number of Jeep Liberty SUVs affected is climbing to almost 347,000 because of a problem with the lower control arms in the rear suspension.

Owners living in states that use salt to clear snowy roads are the most likely to own an affected vehicle. In some cases, the control arms can rust and cause a crash, though Chrysler said it hasn’t learned of any accidents or injuries occurring as a result of the issue.

The original recall was announced in March and called for roughly 200,000 units manufactured from 2004 to 2005 to be recalled. Now the stroke has broadened to include cars manufactured between July 3, 2003 and June 29, 2007.

Chrysler says it will contact affected vehicle owners to bring their cars in for service free of charge but you can also contact the company directly by calling 800-853-1403.

    My Girlfriend's mother has a 2003 Jeep Liberty that is experiencing some (transmission?) problems, due to a noise that she heard after driving the vehicle just a short distance. There was nothing that happened that would cause a problem to our knowledge, and we were wondering if we had any recourse based on the factory recalls that had already taken place not sure if this post will get a response, but would be happy with any feedback.Thank you!
