Earlier in the year, Chrysler LLC and its Jeep division issued a recall on certain models of the Liberty SUV due to premature rust and subsequent suspension issues. If located in the northeastern and coastal United States, excessive salt could cause the rear lower control arms of the Jeeps to fracture and break. Jeep’s initial recall covered approximately 209,724 Liberty models built, sold or residing in the U.S.’s ”salt belt” but now, that number has jumped up even more.
Before, the American automaker was investigating 2004 and 2005 model year vehicles. Most recently, Chrysler has issued a supplemental voluntary recall on an additional 137,176 Liberty SUVs. This time around, the affected trucks are 2006 and 2007 model years and all affected are in the same region as before. If left unaided, the rear lower control arms could break causing all types of problems for drivers. To remedy the issue, certified dealers will inspect and replace the components and do so at no extra cost to owners.
