Beware If You Or Yours Is Driving A Well-maintained jeep liberty. My Son Could Lost Control And Could Have Been Killed If He Was Traveling At A Highway Speed In A 2003 jeep liberty When The Upper Ball Joint Suspension Failed On His Vehicle. After A Recent Recall And Replacement Of The Lower Ball Joints Of My Son’s 2003 jeep liberty, The Upper Ball Joint Which Is Of Similar Design And Manufacturer Broke While Driving At 25 Mph On Local Road On Passenger Side Causing Wheel To Detach. Per Website Postings Joint Is Sealed And Thus Cannot Be Maintained Or Lubricated. A Chrysler Representative Said That It Stands Behind Its Parts Products But Refuses To Address $900 Repair Or Towing As It Is Not Subject To Recall Or Warranty. Vehicle Was Not Used For Off-roading Or Aggressive Driving. I Have Kept The Parts. Am Thankful That Son Is Ok But Have Received No Satisfaction From Chrysler Or Dealer Where Vehicle Has Been Maintained. Owners Should Be Notified So That They Can Have Their Vehicles Inspected To Avert This Same Failure Although Recent Inspection Of Lower Ball Joints That Were Subject To Recall Did Not Prevent The Upper Ball Joint Failure In Our Case. *tr

I Was Driving Along In My 2007 jeep liberty At 34 M.p.h. When All Of A Sudden There Was A Horrible Noise And The Right Side Of My Car Fell To The Ground. I Tried To Steer Safely Off The Road And Found The Car Almost Impossible To Steer And I Was Heading Into On-coming Traffic. I Could Have Been Injured Or Killed And I Had Two Passengers In My Car Who Witnessed The Sudden Failure Of My Brand New 8 Month Old Car! It Appears That My Lower Right Ball Joint Fell Out And Broke My Car To The Point My Tire Came Off My Rim As My Rim Broke When The Car Fell To The Ground. There Is So Much Front End Damage That My Car Is Now Totaled And I Am Out A New Vehicle. The Local Dealer Will Not Acknowledge There Is A Problem As They Say The 2007 Was Not Part Of The Massive Recall On Other liberty‘s With The Same Problem. I’ve Asked My Insurance Company For An Investigation And I’ve E-mailed The jeep Corporation With The Same Request, Before Someone Else Gets Hurt Or Worse! Someone Needs To Step Up Here And Investigate These Cars, They Are Not Safe And Now I’m Left With No Car And Trying To Settle With My Insurance Company. I’m Just Glad That I Was Not On The Highway, As My Car Is Totaled From 34 M.p.h., I Can’t Imagine What Would Have Happened Had I Been On The Highway. I’m Also Thankful My Daughter Was Not In The Car At The Time – Please Help Get These Cars Off The Road!! *tr

When I Arrived For My Appointment; They Said The Parts Were On Back Order! Today I Called Tamiami jeep To Make An Appointment And Was Told 1) It’s Very Dangerous As Tires May Detach 2) They Have Some Parts, But Not Some Bolt, If That Is Required! Question- If These Are Mandatory Recalls And On Such Potentially Safety Compromising Parts- How Can The Parts Be On Back Order For 3 Months!! (this Will Be My First Visit To Tamiami For Service Appt-but Was Already Advised Not All Parts Available- What’s The Use Of Making A Appointment If They Is A Nationwide Of A Part To Repair A Recall? What Happens If My Tires Detach Or My Car Has “underbody Fire” As Per My Most Recent Notice?

(1) Front Right Side Of jeep liberty Dropped Down On Tire (2) Tire Was Flat And jeep Ran Off Road (3) Investigator Only Looked For Open Pot-hole Or Construction And Did Not Look For Any Defective Situation. Ball Joint Defect Was Reported To Public Over 5 Months Later. I Kept The Tire Which Has Unusual Slicing Through The Inside Edge With A Few Penetrations Within That Area And All Perfectly Lined Up With Each Other. I Took Pictures Of The Tire Assembly Area In Case There Would Be Any Indication Of Faulty Parts. Investigator Only Sited Tire Hit Something And Blew Out As Told To Me By The State Farm Claim Agent. Follow-up Of This Case Was Rejected By Same Claim Agent Because Ball Joint Is Not Available To Inspect.

If you are researching a used Jeep LIBERTY, driving a 2005 Jeep LIBERTY, or if you are planning to purchase one, review reported Suspension Front Control Arm Lower Ball Joint defects and safety problems. Total Jeep LIBERTY problem reports: 92.

The Lower Front Ball Joints On My 2005 jeep liberty 4×4 With 26000 Miles Show Excessive Wear. Due To The Design Of The Joint Total Failure Will Result In The Ball And Socket Separating From The Spindle/wheel Assembly. A Failure Of This Nature Will Result In Loss Of Control Of The Vehicle. This Excessive Wear Has Manifested Itself In A Loud Clunking Which Has Been Getting Worse For 3000 Miles But The Dealer Could Not Locate The Problem. I Found The Problem When Doing Routine Maintenance And Measured The Up And Down Movement In The Joint To Be .25 Inches. When The Dealer Went To Install The New Joints He Also Found The Upper Ball Joints To Be Bad. I Had A Previous liberty(2002) Which Was Recalled For This Same Problem And Assumed jeep Had Fixed The Ball Joints. Obviously They Have Not. There Have Been Several Incidents Reported Already (lostkj.com) Where People Have Had A Catastrophic Failure Associated With These Joints. jeep Must Fix This Design Asap.

My Wife Was Working Late And Left To Come Home Around 7:30 Pm. She Works About 30-45 Minutes Away On The Other Side Of The Mountain And Travels Very Steep And Windy Roads. As She Was Coming Home She Heard A Noise Come From The Front End And Didn’t Think Anything Of It. As She Was Coming Up The Private Dirt Road To Our House All Of A Sudden The Front Drivers Side Of The jeep Collapsed And The Tire Popped. She Could Not Move At All So She Walked The Rest Of The Way Home And When She Got Home I Walked Down To See What Was Going On. Sure Enough What Happened Was The Bolt Holding The Lower A-arm Came Off And The Whole Assembly Was Sitting On The Ground And Had Made A Huge Hole In The Tire. Lucky This Did Not Happen Going Up The Steep And Windy Roads Over The Mountain Other Wise She Would Have Definitely Got Into An Accident. We Called The Chrysler Road Side Assistance And Had The jeep Towed To The Dealer. The Next Day We Called The Dealer They Gave Us A Loaner Car. About A Week Later We Picked Up The jeep They Had Replaced Both Front Ball Joints And Replaced The Tire With A Brand New One. We Only Had Our 05 Renegade For Just Over A Year And About 31000 Miles On It. *jb

I Have A Nationwide Safety Recall On My 2005 jeep liberty From Daimler Chrysler. When I Contacted My Dealership As Instructed By Chrysler I Was Informed They Were Only Receiving 3 Parts A Week From Chrysler. As Of Today I Am 80th On The Waiting List.

My Concern Is The Recall States The Following:”when The Driver Continues To Operate The Vehicle With This Condition, The Contamination Can Lead To Corrosion, Accelerated Wear And Possibly Separation From The Steering Knuckle Causing A Loss Of Vehicle Steering Control Increasing The Risk Of A Crash.” It Appears This Is A Serious Safety Condition That Could Kill The People In The liberty And Other Vehicles If This Unit Fails.

My Dealer Told Me That Chrysler Sends Out 20,000 Letters Per Week To Notify Customers Of The Problem But Only Produces 1,000 Units That Will Rectify The Problem And Make The Vehicle Safe To Drive. I Feel That Chrysler Should Be Doing Everything That They Can To Protect Their Customers. I Feel Very Unsafe In My Own Vehicle. *nm

I Am Writing In Response To Recalls That Have Been Issued For My Type Of Vehicle (2005 jeep liberty). I Was Never Notified Of The Recall Issued For Lower Ball Joints For My Vehicle. When I Called Customer Service At Daimler Chrysler To Inquire Why I Was Not Notified, I Was Made To Feel Unimportant. I Then Called My Local Dealership And Spoke To The Service Manager. He Was Aware Of The Recall, However Never Notified Me That It Needed To Be Repaired. I Take My Vehicle There For Service Every Month Or So Since Purchasing In June 2005. He Claimed That The Parts Were Back Ordered And He Would Let Me Know When They Would Be In. That Was On 3-12-07 And Today Is 3-22-07 And He Has Not Returned My Call. I Am A New Mother Of A Baby Boy (3 Months) And It Does Not Make Me Or My Husband Happy That We Are Riding In A Vehicle With A Defect. I Am Being To Think That The jeep liberty Is A “lemon”. After Calling And Complaining, I Received A Recall Notice Postmarked 3-16-07. What Actions Can I Take From This Point? I Am Very Unhappy. I Have Mailed A Letter Of Complaint To The Dealership And Daimler Chrysler. Please Let Me Know How To Proceed From This Point. I Am Awaiting Your Response. The Dealership I Purchased From Is As Follows: Galeana jeep 180 Greystone Blvd. Columbia, Sc 29210 Thank You For Your Assistance. Sincerely, Robin Tidwell

I Do Not Blame The Dealerships, I Blame The Manufacturer Because I Have Contacted A Number Of Dealerships And It’s The Same Story Everywhere. I Would Like Some Pressure To Be Put On Daimler-chrysler To Begin To Mass Produce These Parts As I Am Becoming Increasingly Worried For The Safety Of My Wife. It States In The Recall Notice “ball Joint Separation Can Result In A Loss Of Steering Control And Could Cause A Crash Without Prior Warning”. Something Needs To Done Immediately Because If Something Should Happen I Would Hold Both The Manufacturer And The Nhtsa Responsible. *jb

Called Dealership Twice About Recall On jeep liberty Ball Joint Problem. I Wastold It Could Be Several Months Before I Could Have My jeep Repaired Because Daimler Chrysler Was Sending A Few Parts At A Time. If This Was Serious They Could Certainly Look At The Sales Of The Dealerships And Determine An Average Number To Send To Each One, Even If In Stages. What Am I Supposed To Drive Until Then? Do I Just Take My Chances And Hope For The Best. If Manufacture Has A Recall They Should Make Sure The Dealerships Could Take Care Of Thier Customers Faster Than A Couple Of Months.*ak

My 2005 jeep liberty Has Been Pulling To The Right Since I Had The Dealership Replace The Lower Ball Joints Due To The Recall. I’ve Complained To The Dealership Since It Was Done And They’ve Taken It In And Looked At It Several Times. It Has Been Aligned And The Tires Have Been Rotated More Than Is Specified Just Trying To Get It To Drive Straight Down The Road Again. It Has Torn Up To Inner Right Front Fender Wells And Has Worn The Tire Down On The Right Front Side. I Don’t Believe My Vehicle Is Safe To Drive. It’s Difficult To Keep It On The Road Because If I Let Go Of The Steering Wheel Even For A Moment It Veers Off To The Right Immediately. *jb

We Own A 2005 jeep liberty . In Jan. 2007 We Received A Recall Letter W/ Notification Code F23 . We Had The Recall Work Done At Bill Luke In Phx., Az In Jan. 2007 . Now While Here In Evansville , In. We Had Our jeep Serviced ( 11/07 ) And The Mechanic Showed Us That The 2 Front Tires Were Worn Out Badly On The Inside Of Each Tire. He Told Us That The Front End Components Are All Good And Sound So He Suggested We Have A Front End Alignment Done. He Also Rotated The Bad Tires To The Back And Back To Front. After Investigating The Receipts From The Past Recall Work There Was No Front End Alignment Done After The Lower Ball Joints Were Installed At Bill Luke In Phx,az.. We Just Took It As If That Work Was Done And Never Questioned The Dealership About A Front End Alignment And They Never Said Anything To Us About It. We Have Contacted Bill Luke With No Resolve To This Serious Problem They Created On Our jeep. We Need To Now Replace 4 Tires And Get A Computerized Front End Alignment ( Approx. $ 850 ) At The Cost Of Their Negligence. We Need Help To Resolve This Matter Promptly. Any Time Any Front End Parts Are Replaced A Front End Alignment Should Be Done. And Trying To Explain That To The Dealership In Phx Is Very Hard. Please Help Us Get Reimbursement For This Problem That Daimler Chrysler Created. Thank You. *tr

Our 2005 jeep liberty Limited Crd Has Had The Lower Front Suspension Ball Joints Replaced As Part Of The Vehicle’s Recall Notice. At Approximately 30,000 Miles, We Went To An Independent Tire Shop For An Alignment Due To Poor Tire Wear And “wandering” Characteristics When Driving At Highway Speeds. The Tire Shop Indicated That The Vehicle Had A Defective Upper Ball Joint And Could Replace The Failed Unit With Permission From The Dealer. The Dealer, Medved jeep, Denied The Claim. We Took The Vehicle To Medved Who Then Claimed That The Upper Ball Joints Were Not Defective. At Approximately 37,000 Miles The Vehicle Had A Higher Frequency Of Front End Clunking, So I Took It Back To Medved Who Then Claimed The Noise Was Only An Extraneous Battery Loose Under The Seat. At Approximately 43,000 Miles, The Clunking Had Become Disturbingly Frequent And More Severe. I Took It Back To Medved And They Now Confirm That It’s A Faulty Upper Ball Joint. However, They Claim No Responsibility For Not Correcting The Problem At 30,000 Miles Or 37,000 Miles. They Refused To Replace The Defective Part, And Furthermore, Called In A Chrysler Inspector Who Reported That Our 1-1/2″ Lift Kit Caused The Problems With The Ball Joint. However, The Boots On The Ball Joints Are Still Intact And There Is No Visible Evidence That Indicates The Cause Of The Ball Joint Failure (poor Manufacturing Versus Lift Kit). There Has Been No Forensic Evaluation Of The Failure. The Upper Ball Joints On This Vehicle Have A “record” Of Failure Per Online Forums. Many Failures Are On Vehicles Without Lift Kits- Pointing To Likely Underengineered Component’s On The Part Of jeep Versus Purely Speculative Conclusions That Our 1-1/2″ Lift Kit May Have Caused The Failure. The Lower Ball Joint Engineering Was Faulty, And Nhtsa Should Explore The Related Failures To The Upper Suspension Ball Joints. This Is As Potentially Serious Under Catastrophic Failure As The Lower Suspension Ball Joints. *tr

On Monday Night, At Around 8:30pm, I Was Driving Back Home At Approximately 15 Mph, Taking A Left, And From The Inside Of The Car, My Friend And I Heard A Loud Pop Noise, Then Some Loud Grinding Noise After. I Quickly Shifted The Car To Park, Jumped Out Of The Car Thinking That I Had A Flat Tire. The Tires Were Intact. My Car Refused To Budge, Even After The Police Came And We Had Put The Car In Neutral, And Tried To Push It Out Of The Middle Of An Intersection Of Two Roads. The Car Refused To Budge. Right After The Getting Out Of The Car, I Noticed That There The Car Had Begun To Leak From Under The Hood Onto The Ground. I Had To Call Triple A To Get The Car Towed To The Nearest Dealership – Grava jeep Dealership – And The Next Day, The Service Department At The Dealership Called And Said That It Was The Lower Ball Joints – Which Was A Safety Recall For The jeep liberty ’05, And Because The Lower Ball Joints Had Separated, It Had Caused Rim Damage To The Car, Making It Unsafe To Drive With – As It Would Damage And Deflate My Tire. The Power Steering Line Was Also Found To Be Leaking, Of Which I Had Never Had Issues With Until The Ball Joint Had Separated, And The Car Was Attempted To Be Moved To Safety (that Was When We Saw The Large Puddle Of Liquid Dripping Out Of The Car). Grava Dealership Has Agreed To Replace The Lower Ball Joints Under Warranty, But They Would Not Cover The Damage To The Rim Or The Power Steering, Although The Lower Ball Joint Caused The Damage To The Rim When It Broke Apart, And Said Because It Was Only A Possibility That The Lower Ball Joint Could Have Caused Stress To The Power Steering, And Isn’t Definite, I Would Have To Cover The Entire Costs. I Called The Reimbursement Department Of Chrysler Explaining The Situation And They Kept Transferring Me To Supervisors, Senior Staff, Other Customer Representatives, Until Finally Today – 12/16 – I Called 2 More Times, And Was Told That They Would Only Cover 25% Of The Rim Damage. *tr

After Reading Many Complaints About Lower Ball Joint Failure On The 02-03 liberty, I Got Concerned And Check The Lower Ball Joints On Our liberty. We Have An 2004 jeep liberty With Approx. 32,000 Miles. Upon Checking We Discovered That Driver Side Lower Ball Joint Had Approx 1/4 Inch Play In It. The Passenger Side Had Maybe A 1/16 Inch Play. Called The Dealer And Was Instructed That It Would Not Be Covered Under Warranty As They Blamed The Lift On The Failure. This Is Not Caused By The Lift It Is A Pre Existing Problem. Chrysler Fix To This Was To Install A Heat Shield Behind The Rotor And In Front Of The Ball Joint. However, That Is Not The Fix, It Is A Design Flaw. The Ball Joint Is Actually Installed Upside Down Causing Stress Every Time You Hit A Bump. I Will Be Having It Fixed By A Non Dealer Shop. We Will Save All Our Receipts In Case A Recall Is Started For The 04-05. *nm

This Is An Update To An Earlier Complaint That I Filed, As There Appears To Be No Mechanism To Update A Complaint. There Have Been Many Complaints Prior To This One On suspension:front:control Arm:lower Ball Joint. This Complaint Is Also For The Same Problem. I Leased A jeep liberty 2004 With 37800 Miles On It. While Driving To A Destination, I Lost My Way And Had To Turn Into A Car Park. While In The Car Park, I Suddenly Noticed The Passenger Side Of The Car Dip Down With A Loud Noise. As I Parked The Car, The Car Fell Further Down, So I Parked And Got Out Of The Car. Looking At The Car It Appeared To Be Leaning To The Passenger Side. Next Day While The Car Was Being Put On The Tow Truck, I Noticed That Both The Wheels Were Falling Apart And The Middle Part Of The Axle (or Whatever Holds The Two Front Wheels Together) Was Broken And Dragging On The Ground. The Car Had No Problem Up Until This Point And It Is Only 18 Months Old. Thankfully This Whole Episode Happened While I Was In The Car Park. Had It Happened On A Highway, It Would Most Likely Have Been Fatal. The Car Was Taken To A jeep Dealer (a Week Ago). It Will Be Returned Tomorrow With Me Having To Pay The Full Cost Of Repair. I Will Argue This With The jeep Dealer Tomorrow, As jeep Should Take Responsibility For The Car Falling Apart And Should Not Only Absorb The Cost Of The Repair, But Also Investigate What Went Wrong As This Kind Of Failure Is Bound To Be Fatal. If The jeep Dealer Is Not Accommodating, We Will Pursue This Through The Nhtsa As Well As The Better Business Bureau. Worst Case We Will Have To Higher A Lawyer. *nm

With No Warning Whatsoever, The Left Front Lower Ball Joint On My Vehicle Broke While I Was Backing Out Of A Parking Space. The Vehicle Did Not Make Any Unusual Noises Nor Were There Any Noticeable Problems Prior To The Part Breaking. When The Ball Joint Broke, The Wheel Was Also Damaged. When I Had The Vehicle Towed Into A jeep Dealer, I Was Informed That There Was A Recall On 2003 jeep liberty‘s For This Problem, But No Recall Had Been Issued On The 2004 Model. The Mechanics At The Dealership Told Me That This Part Should Be Expected To Last Much More Than The 1 Year, 9 Months & 40,000 Miles Of My Vehicle Life. My Extended Warranty Covered The Cost Of Replacing Both Front Ball Joints (except For A $100 Deductible) And I Had To Pay To Replace The Damaged Wheel. ($317.55). We Were Away From Home And Had Stopped For Something To Eat At The Time This Happened. Just Think Of The Possibilities If We Were Enroute Or Returning Via The Expressways At Speeds Between 55 And 70 Mph. I Have Contacted Daimler/chrysler Customer Care And They Seem Unwilling To Discuss This Possible Defect On This Vehicle. *jb

I Was Entering The Interstate From An Entrance Ramp. At The Top Of The Ramp, I Heard A Loud Pop & Steering Became Difficult. I Pulled Out Of Traffic Next To A Concrete Wall And Stopped To Check If I Had A Tire Blow-out. Upon Seeing The Tires Were Okay, My Husband Got Into The Vehicle, Put It Into Gear And Began To Drive It. Within 3 Feet, The Ball Joint Assembly Apparently Gave Way & The Left Front Of The Vehicle Fell, Resting On The Top Of The Tire. We Were Stranded For About An Hour At The Entrance Ramp/interstate Connection In A Severe Thunderstorm, Praying For Our Lives. I Am Diabetic, And The Stress Caused My Blood Sugar To Rise And I Went Into Tachycardia. Fortunately, I Had Medication With Me And Did Not Have To Go To A Hospital. Aaa Sent A Flatbed Wrecker To Take The Vehicle To A Nearby Dealer Who, After jeep Refused To Replace The Parts At Their Expense, Repaired The jeep Using Our Previously Purchased Extended Warranty.

My Wifes Car Is A 2004 jeep liberty Sport [xxx], And She Is The Main Driver Of This Vehicle. On March 31st 2006 I Decided To Take Her Car To Michigan That Day. When I Got In It I Noticed That The Steering Was Not Right. The Problem Was That It Seemed Like You Really Had To Work At Keeping It Going Straight Down The Road. When Turning The Vehicle It Didn’t Want To Straighten Back Out Like Most Cars Do. You Actually Had To Turn The Wheel To Get It Going Back In A Straight Direction Again. I Decided I Needed To Stop And Have A Trained Service Technician Look At The Vehicle That Morning. When I Got There And Explained The Problem To The Maintenance Man He Said Lets Take It For A Test Drive. He Stated That He Didn’t See A Problem With The Vehicle Going Down The Road But Did Notice It Was A Little Hard To Turn. He Stated That They Couldn’t Look At It That Day, So He Scheduled For Me To Bring It By On Wednesday April 5th Which Was 5 Days After I Had Taken It By. He Assured Me Everything Was Okay And That It Was Alright To Drive. On April 4, 2006 My Wife Called Me At 9:05 A.m. To Let Me Know That The Car Had Broken Down. I Asked Her What Was Wrong, And She Stated That She Barely Got It Into The Ymca Parking Lot Where She Was Dropping Off My 3 Year Old For Preschool. When It Broke My Wife Said The Vehicle Dropped Like She Had A Blow Out. The Wrecker Stated That It Was A Broken Ball Joint And Could Not Believe This Since There Is Only 24,000 Miles On The Vehicle. Thank God This Happened At A Slow Rate Of Speed Instead Of Going Down The Highway At 65 Mph With My Three Year Old And Seven Year Old Sons In The Car. They Could Very Well Put Another Defective Part On This Vehicle, And I Am Terrified To Put My Family Back Into This Car Since There Has Been No Recall Or Retro Fit. The Next Time Could Cost My Family Their Lives. I Hope This Issue Can Be Resolved Safely Before Someone Gets Seriously Hurt. The liberty Is At Shop Waiting For Repair. *nm *js

While Exiting A Parking Lot At About 10 Mph The 2004 jeep liberty I Was Driving Made A Loud Banging Noise And Then A Grinding Noise. I Stopped The Vehicle And Got Out To Inspect The Problem. I Found That The Lower Ball Joint Had Separated And Was Shocked To See That On A Vehicle With 40,000 Miles. I Had The Vehicle In The Shop At 35,000 Miles Complaining Of A Creaking Noise While Turning And A Clunking Noise Over Bumps And They Said They Could Not Duplicate The Problem And Did Not See Anything Wrong. I Would Highly Suggest That This Be A Recall Or At Least A Technical Service Bulletin For The Mechanics. If Nothing Is Done To Worn The Owners Of These Vehicles More People Will Be Killed!!!!! I Know The 2002 And 03 Models Were Recalled And Reading All These Problems With The 04’s It Is Painfully Obvious That The Problem Was Not Corrected By The Engineering Dept. At Dm. I Just Had The Vehicle Towed To My Local Dealer And If This Problem (and The Torn Cv Boot, Trans Seal And Rim) Are Not Repaired Under Warranty I Feel There Is A Lawsuit In Order. I Think It Should Be An Auto Manufactures Primary Goal To Keep There Customers Safety Priority #1. *nm

The Dealership Tech Said That Nothing Was Wrong With The Ball Joints. I Then Showed Him That There Was Play And Looseness. It Turned Out That He Was Not Checking Them By The Service Manual Procedures. The Vehicle Has Been At The Dealer For Over A Week And A Half And Assuming That They Still Have The Bad Parts I Will Be Sending Them To D.c. To Be Examined. *jb

I Own A 2004 jeep liberty Sport. I Love It! I Bought It From A jeep Dealership & Get All The Service Work Done At The Dealership As Well. There Have Been No Troubles With My jeep Until Recently. While I Was Backing Out Of A Parking Space I Heard A Noise And The Front Passenger Side Seemed To Drop. I Parked The jeep Into My Parking Space With A Terrible Grinding Noise As To Not Get Hit Since I Was Blocking The Drive. I Called For Road Side Assistance To Have It Towed As It Was Not Drivable. The Front Passenger Side Was Sitting Much Lower Than The Driver Side. When The Tow Truck Arrived, The Driver Couldn’t Believe What He Saw. The Lower Front Ball Joint Had Completely Separated From The Control Arm And The Tire Was On The Line Of Completely Falling Off. He Was Not Equipped To Remove It From The Parking Space Without Causing More Damage To It At That Time, So I Had To Have A Different Tow Truck Dispatched That Would Be Able To Raise It On A Dolly And Remove It From The Parking Space To Tow It. The Next Day I Spoke To My Dealership & They Said The 2002 & 2003 Models Had Been Recalled For This Exact Same Problem. Thank Goodness That This Happen While I Was Just Backing Out Of A Parking Space! I Drive 35 Miles One Way To Work On The Highway At 55-65 Miles Per Hour Every Single Day. This Would Have Been Deadly If The Ball Joint Had Broken While I Was Driving On The Highway! My Factory Warranty Had Expired Since My jeep Has Over The Standard 36,000 Miles So I Had To Pay For The Expensive Repairs On My Own. The Dealership Suggested That I Contact Chrysler Customer Service To Pursue Reimbursement Of This Repair Bill That Totaled Over $2,000 For The New Lower Ball Joints On Both Front Tires, Replacement Of The Axel And A New Wheel As It Was Damaged When The Ball Joint Broke. I Have Called Chrysler Customer Service And They Have Not Said They Won’t Reimburse Me For The Repairs, But Contacting The Dealership For More Details Before They Decide. *jb

Just By Typing In The Search Box “problems With 2004 jeep liberty‘s.” My Concern Is That There May Be People Driving This Model And May Have A Wheel Come Off. I Was Lucky Since Mine Occurred After I Parked. The Dealer Called Me Today And Said My jeep Is Ready To Be Picked Up And That The Ball Joint And The Axle Was Replaced And That I Shouldn’t Worry Because They Replaced It With An Updated Ball Joint — The Best That They Have And The Same Type That Was Used On The Recalls For The 2002’s And 2003’s. So I Guess They Will Replace If The Warranty Is Still Valid And If Not, People Will Have To Pay Out Of Pocket. I Want To Know Why They Are Not Putting Into Place A Recall For The Owners Of 2004 Vehicles? Someone May Be Seriously Injured Or Even Killed Due To Lack Of Knowledge Of This Faulty Ball Joint Problem. As A Result Of The Ball Joint Breaking – The Axle Broke And The Brake Line Was Punctured. *jb

On Sunday Morning, I Noticed That The Car Was Pulling Oddly To The Left. While Driving Home From Dinner In The Evening, I Stopped At A Store And When Leaving Heard A Loud Thump And Scraping Noise. The Right Passenger Side Tire Was Rubbing Up Against The Steering Well. A Tow Truck Was Called To Tow The Vehicle To The Local jeep Dealer And In The Process He Mentioned That This Was A Ball Joint Issue. In Speaking With The Dealership Today, They Have Determined That This Was A Failure Of The Right Ball Joint Which Caused Separation From The Steering Column. This Vehicle Has Only 41,000 Miles On It. The Vehicle Has Not Yet Been Fixed But It Has Been Recommended That Both The Right And Left Ball Joints Be Replaced In The Car. This Vehicle Is 5,000 Miles From Factory Warranty And Therefore I’m Told That This Will Not Be Covered By The Manufacturer. It Was Also Mentioned To Me That A Recall Was Conducted For The 2002 And 2003 Models Of This Same Vehicle But Nothing For 2004. Chrysler Is Still Investigating The Situation With The Dealer But They Have Already Told Me That This Was Not An Issue That I Could Have Prevented And Was Not Caused By Normal Wear And Tear. We Were 5 Minutes From Getting On The Highway Where, If This Failure Had Occurred At That High Rate Of Speed, Would Have Caused A Rather Major Incident. Chrysler, At Best, Has Told Me That They Will Investigate With The Dealer Further But That They Are Not Fully Liable Because This Vehicle Is Outside Of The Manufacturer’s Warranty. *nm

Hi, I Was Driving On I405 North Next To Right Most Lane On 28th April In A 2004 jeep liberty Sport And Lost Control Because Of The Steering Problem, When I Tried To Gain Control The Steering Wheel Became Jammed And I Wasn’t Able To Gain Control And Hit The Concrete Divider After Crossing All The Lanes . I Came To Know The Ball Joint Defect After Reading The Recall News Of jeep liberty Vehicles. I Put Forward 3 Theories Behind The Accident To The Insurance Company. I Clearly Mentioned Them The Steering Wheel Was Jammed So I Didn’t Able To Steer. The Police Cruiser Pushed My Vehicle To The Break Down Lane. The Vehicle Was A Total Loss. The Vehicle Is With The Century 21 Insurance Company. The 3 Theories I Put I) Steering Failure. Ii) Tire Burst Iii) Hit And Run By Some Other Vehicle. The Insurance Company Is Still Investigating The Accident. I Got A Report From Them Where They Mentioned Nothing Wrong With The Tires. The Third Option Police Report Tells Nothing. I Told The Insurance Company To Look In To Steering Failure As The Vehicle Still With Them. I Have Not Heard The Investigation Result From Them Yet. When I Read The News Article Today, Which Confirms My First Theory. My jeep Was A 2004 Model And Has 26,470 Miles At The Time Of Accident. I Can Provide The jeep Company Any Information They Need. *jb

My Husband Had Been Saying That The Steering Was Really Tight And When You Turned You Actually Had To Turn The Wheel To Straighten The Car Back Out Normally The Wheel Will Come Back On Its On In All Other Vehicles That We Have Had. I Was Exiting A Shopping Mall Parking Lot When All Of The Sudden It Sounded And Felt Like The Bottom Had Fallen Out Of My jeep. So I Stopped There In The Middle Of The Road. My Mother Who Was With Me Suggested That She Thought I Had A Flat Tire. I Got Out Of The Vehicle And Did Not Have A Flat Tire Instead My Lower Left Ball Joint Had Fallen Out And Was Sitting In The Inside Wheel Well On The Drivers Side. It Was Towed To The jeep Dealership Where It Was Purchased And Repaired The Following Monday. Of Course It Was Not Covered Under The Extended Warranty That Came With My Car So I Had To Pay Out Of Pocket. *nm

I Brought My 2004 jeep liberty Into Milford jeep For Safety Recall F23. The Recall Was To Replace The Lower Ball Joints. When I Asked If A Wheel Alignment Was Going To Be Done, They Said It Would Not Be Done. In Checking With Daimlerchrysler, I Found Out That They Do Not Approve A Wheel Alignment And, If One Is Done, It Would Be At The Owner’s Expense. I Know The Alignment Was Good Prior To The Ball Joint Replacement As My Tire Wear Was Even. But,now I Will Have To Have A Wheel Alignment Done As There Is Indications In My Steering That Suggest It Needs An Alignment. I Can Not Believe That A Ball Joint Replacement Shouldn’t Include A Wheel Alignment.

I Have A 2004 jeep liberty. It Is Still Covered Under Warranty. First I Had Trouble With The Transmission. It Is Not Shifting Properly. I Took It To Two Dealers Who Told Me That There Was Nothing Wrong With It. I Then Found Out From My Local Mechanic That My Ball Joints Were Bad. He Took Me Right Under The Car And Showed Them To Me…they Are Loose. I Took It To One Dealer For This, And Once Again I Was Told That There Was Nothing Wrong With It. I Was Told That It Met Their “factory Specs”. I Now Suspect That This Is Why My Transmission Was Deemed O.k…it Met Their “factory Specs”. Why Bother Having A Warranty If Your Not Going To Take Care Of Problems With The Vehicle??? I Now Find Out That My Vehicle Is Included In A Recall For….surprise, Surprise….bad Ball Joints!!! Only Problem Is, I Have To Wait (and Drive Around With Bad Ball Joints) Until They Get Around To Sending Me The Notice. Totally Unsafe And Not Good For My Tires. This Could Of Been Taken Care Of 3 Months Ago When I Originally Took It In. *nm

I Received A Recall Notice From Daimler Chrysler About My 2004 jeep liberty About A Safety Recall F23-lower Ball Joints. This Recall States That “ball Joint Separation Can Result In A Loss Of Steering Control And Could Cause A Crash Without Prior Warning”. Trying To Make An Appointment With The Dealer To Repair The Problem Revealed There Would Be An 8 Week Wait Because The Parts Are Not Available. I Learned From The Dealer (and Later Verified By Calling Daimler Chrysler At 1.800.853.1403) That Daimler Chrysler Is Making Only 3 Replacement Parts Available To Dealers Per Week! If This Is Such A Potentially Dangerous Situation, Doesn’t Daimler Chrysler Have An Obligation To Make More Parts Available To Dealers Of Their Defective Cars? I Understand That We Are Talking About A Lot Of Cars, But That Does Not Change The Fact That I Am Driving A Defective Vehicle Which I Will Have To Continue To Drive For Another 8 Weeks. How Can Such A Huge Corporation Not Insure That Parts Are Available To Their Dealers In A More Timely Fashion? What Happens If Indeed A Crash Occurs Without Prior Warning During That Waiting Period? What Will Daimler Chrysler Say And Do Then? This Is A Shameful Example Of Violating The Public Trust-and This Car Is Not Cheap-they Are Certainly Not Saying-hold Your Payments Until The Car Is Repaired. What Can I Do But Wait?*jb

I Own A 2004 jeep liberty. I Read An Article In Our Local Paper In August 2006 Concerning Recalls. Finally Received The Notification Late November – Safety Recall #f23 From Daimler Chrysler – Lower Ball Joints. Called My Dealership Immediately. Was Told I Was On A Waiting List Of 30 Ahead Of Me And That The Dealership Was Only Receiving Parts To Fix 2 Vehicles Per Week. This Is Ridiculous Because I Was Told I Could Lose A Wheel If Those Lower Ball Joints Give Out. Which Could Result Is Loss Of Control Of Vehicle, Accident, Injury Or Death. Called Dealership On 1/9/07 – There Is Still 20 Vehicles Ahead Of Me. Called An 800 Number To Daimler Chrysler On 1/10/07 To Complain And My Call Could Not Be Connected To A Customer Representative. This Is When I Decided To File A Complaint With You. This Vehicle Is A Family Used Vehicle. I Have A Teenage Daughter Driving And I Am Scared To Let Her Use This Vehicle. I Understand It Is Not My Dealerships Fault – They State Daimler Chrysler Is Slow At Sending Out The Parts. This Is Unacceptable To Me. *jb

Saw Recall Notice In Newspaper For jeep liberty Concerning Front Suspension Lower Ball Joints. I Called My Dealer Two Months Ago And Was Told I Would Be Placed On A Waiting List Of About Sixty Persons. I Recently Received A Written Notice About This Recall With Instruction To Call My Dealer. The Dealer Now Says I Am About 12 Or So On List, But Can Give Me No Firm Date For Service. My Recall Notice Says That Ball Joint Separation Can Result In A Loss Of Steering Control. I Tried Calling The Contact Phone # At Daimler Chrysler, But Only Heard A Fuzzy, Long Message With No Options. My Complaint Has To Do With Daimler Chrysler. According To My Dealer, Daimler Chrysler Is Slow To Supply The Parts To The Dealers For This Repair. This Seems To Me To Be Too Long To Wait To Repair A Potentially Dangerous Part. *jb

I Was Driving Down A 2 Lane Country Road, Within Speed Limit, Road Conditions Excellent. I Have A Pristine Driving Record. I Rounded A Bend And Was Approaching The Straightaway And Although I Steered To Straighten The Vehicle, My jeep Continued To Go To The Right. I Turned The Wheel Harder To Correct The Direction And The jeep Veered To The Left Into The Oncoming Traffic Lane. I Managed To Get The Car Back To The Right Side Of The Road, But The Car Hit The Gully On The Side Of The Road And Crashed Into A Tree Stump. Although I Applied The Brakes The Car Felt Like It Skidded To The Right And The Antilock Brakes Didn’t Engage. When I Crashed Into The Side Of The Road I Broke The Front Wheel And Damaged The Rear Wheel, Broke The Lower Control Arm, Damaged The Suspension And Steering Knuckle, And Did Some Body Damage. When I Queried The Dealer About How This Could Happen, They Said They Knew Of No Defects On The 2003 liberty. After Finding The Information On The Internet About The Lower Control Arm/ball Joint Recall, And Calling The Dealer Again With This Info, The Dealer Said, Oh Yeah, They Knew About That, But “don’t Pay Much Attention To Recalls.” I Had The Car Serviced By My Dealership On 12/16/03, The Day After The Recall Notices Were Supposedly Sent To Customers (i Still Haven’t Received One As Of 2/3/03), But They Never Mentioned The Recall Or Scheduled The Replacement Of The Defective Part.

On Monday, April 5, 2004, I Brought My liberty Renegade Farrish jeep In Fairfax, Va For My 18,000 Mile Service Which Included A Tire Rotation And Other Work. No One Ever Mentioned To Me That My Vehicle Was Under A Safety Recall And That Work Had Not Been Completed.*ak On Saturday, April 10, 2004 I Was Driving My liberty When I Heard A Loud Noise That Sounded Like A Shot Gun Going Off And My Car Skidded To The Side Of The Road And Came To A Stop. My Tire Was Flat But Upon Closer Inspection, I Discovered Metal Shavings All Over The Tire And Down The Street Along My Skid Path. My Car Was Towed To The Nearest jeep Dealer Which Was Heritage Chrysler jeep In Alexandria, Va. Greg Anderson, From Heritage jeep, Called Me On Monday, April 12, 2004 And Informed Me That My Ball Joints Had Separated While I Was Driving The Vehicle And That Was The Cause Of The Breakdown. He Said My Vehicle Is Under A Safety Recall For This Exact Problem. I Have Grave Concerns About The Safety Of This Vehicle And The Manner In Which Customers Are Notified About Potentially Life Threatening Defects In Their Vehicles. 1. I Did Not Receive A Recall Notice In The Mail Indicating There Was A Potential Serious Defect With My Vehicle That May Cause Me To Lose Control Of The Vehicle And Crash. 2. It Is My Understanding That All Vehicles Coming Into The Farrish jeep Service Department Have A Function 14 Performed Which Would Indicate Any Outstanding Recalls On A Vehicle. My Vehiicle Did Not Have A Function 14 Performed On It And Not Being Notified That This Work Needed To Be Performed When It Was Just In For Service 5 Days Prior To My Ball Joints Separating Is Completely Unacceptable. This liberty Is My Family Car That I Take My 6 Year Old And 4 Year Old Sons Back And Forth To School In Every Day On The I-495 Beltway. I Cant Imagine What Would Have Happened To Me And My Family, And Other Drivers Around Me, Had My Ball Joints Separated On The Beltway At 60 Miles An Hour. *ak

The Car Was Inspected For Ball Joint Problems (recall) @ 20,000 Miles, The Dealer Said All Was Good And The Work Order States That The Recall Was Performed. At 56,000 Miles I Was Leaving Turning Around In My Neighbors Driveway When The Lower Ball Joint On The Passenger Side Broke, Totally Separated. There Was No Little Warning Before The Joint Broke. When The Joint Broke The Suspension Gouged The Inside Of The Rim Deeply. The Car Was Towed To The Dealer. I Have Yet To Speak To Them (this Just Happened And They Are Closed); However, I Anticipate Collateral Damage To Other Suspension/steering Components As Well. *nm

Driving In Far Left Hand Lane On Nj Tpke At 65 Mph. Suddenly Felt Car Lurch Forward To The Right, Hit The Ground, Tire Blew Out & Began To Fight To Maintain Control Of Vehicle. Traffic Was Incredibly Heavy, Due To Mother’s Day Weekend. Because Of My Training As A Police Officer For The Past 28 Years, I Took My Foot Off The Accelerator, Held The Wheel Tightly And Was Able To Keep Control Of The Vehicle And Skid For Approx. 1/4 Mile Across 3 Lanes To The Roadside. The Vehicle Was Spewing Sparks, Which Caused Others To Slow Behind Us And Avoid A Collision. I Still Cannot Believe The Vehicle Did Not Flip & Kill Both Of Us. According To The Dealership Where It Was Towed, I Suffered Total Ball Joint Failure On The Right Front & Near Failure Of The Left Ball Joint. Fyi, The Tires Were Fairly New–michelin Tires With 8,000 Miles On Them. The Vehicle Is Still Under Review To See If Repair Is Possible Due To The Extensive Damage. *nm

Had It Happened Anywhere Else I Would Not Be Here Today To Write This Complaint. I Have Been Made Aware Of A Recall For 2002 – 2003 Liberties And I Understand That The Recall Dates Ended Two Weeks Before My Build Date.

I’ve Been Having My Dealership Check The Lower Ball Joints When It Gets Serviced. At My 60k Service They Let Me Know My Lbj’s Will Need To Be Replaced. After Talking With Them And jeep Through The 800 Number, Daimler-chrysler Will Not Cover It Under Warranty. It Was Built Six Days After The Cut Off For The Recall And It’s Past It’s 36k Miles And Not Included Under Warranty. Seems Like If Older And Newer Kj’s Are Still Having The Same Part Fail, They Should Be Responsible And Cover The Repair. I Believe They Are Not Going To Really Correct This Until Someone Gets Killed And They Are Forced To For Publicity And Legal Reasons. *nm

June 17th 2006, 52,754 Miles On Vehicle Same Part Is Identified By Chrysler Dealership Service As Needing To Be Replaced Again. Currently At Issue Between Myself, The Dealership And Chrysler Is Whether This Part Will Be Replaced Under The Recall.

Front End Felt Loose On The Right Side And When Braking There Was Heavy Clunking Noise. Found A Recall Notice Online And Called My Dealer. I Was Told To Bring It In And Have It Checked. The Dealer Replaced The Lower Ball Joints On Both Side Stating That The Right Side Was Ready To Break At Any Moment. The Dealer Also Installed A Heat Shield Between The Front Rotors And The Ball Joints. This Was At Approximately 32,000 Miles. Steering Felt Tight Again And The Clunk Noise Was Gone. Then At Approximately 43,000 Miles, The Noise Returned And Again The Steering Felt Loose On The Right Side. This Time I Bought An After Market Replacement Part That Is Sold As A Problem Solver To Replace The Defective Ball Joint. These Were Installed By A Non-dealer Shop At Approximately 45,000 Miles. Noise And Loose Feeling In The Steering Has Went Away. *nm

I Only Stopped To Realize That There Was A Problem When I Saw That There Was An Investigation Going. We Lost Control Of Our 2003 jeep liberty In The Winter Of 2003. We Did Not Report It As It Was A Hill That Had Ice. We Had The Car In 4wd Low And Never Went Beyond 2 Miles An Hour. The Car Continued To Slide And Slide And There Was No Control Over It And We Ended Up Hitting The Mountain, The Better Of The 2 Scenarios The Other Going Off A Cliff. Every Hill I Drive I Have The Same Problem Mostly When There Is Snow On The Ground (even Fresh Non-ice) Snow If There Is Any Degree Of Angle To The Hill, I Can Not Drive It. I Have Slipped Several Times On Angled Dirt Roads But Not To The Degree That I Continue To Have With Snow Covered Hills….after Reading The Report I Realized That This Could Be Caused To The Recall And Issues That Are Taking Place…i Am Not Certain, But Am Giving This Information Should It Help In Any Way….thanks! *jb

I Have Experienced The Same Problem With My 2003 jeep liberty As Described In Ea06008. The Front Right Ball Joint Was Repaired Pursuant To The Recall In 2004 (03v-460). Shortly After The Recall I Observed Unusual Noises And Grinding Sensations In The Front Suspension, So I Returned The Vehicle To The Authorized Dealer That Had Conducted The Recall Repair. They Determined That A Heat Shield Had Been Installed Incorrectly, And Adjusted It. Approximately 6 Months Later (august 2004) The Noises Returned More Severely, And A Different Authorized jeep Dealer Determined That The Front Right Ball Joint Had To Be Replaced, At Significant Cost To Me. Most Recently, The Right Front Ball Joint Completely Failed Just A Couple Weeks Ago (june 2006). This Time The Right Front Wheel Became Completely Detached From The Steering Control Bar, Resulting In Over $3000 In Repair Costs. Luckily, My Pregnant Wife Was Driving Only 3 Mph In A Small Alley When This Occurred. Had It Occurred At Higher Speeds, There Surely Could Have Been Far More Tragic Consequences. *jb

As I Made A Right Turn At 5 Mph, I Heard A Loud Bang And The Driver Side Front Wheel Locked Up. It Was Impossible To Steer Or Drive The Car. If I Had Been Driving At Highway Speeds, I Probably Would Have Crashed. The Lower Ball Joint Had Failed, Digging Into The Wheel. The Wheel Actually Separated From The Car As We Were Removing The Car From The Tow Truck. There Was A Recall For This Problem 2 Or 3 Years Ago, And I Had The Recall Work Done At That Time. However, It Still Failed So The Recall Work Was Ineffective. The Damage Was Repaired Under Warranty, But The Dealer Has Been Unable To Assure Me That The Repair Will Prevent The Problem From Happening Again.

I Was Contacted By Daimler Chrysler Regarding A Safety Recall (f23) For Lower Ball Joints On My 2003 jeep liberty. I Followed The Recall Directions And Contacted My Local Dealer (steve White Motors) To Schedule A Repair. I Was Told That My Repair Would Need To Wait 10 Weeks Due To The Rationing Of Repair Parts To The Dealers By Daimler Chrysler. I Then Contacted The “help” Number For Daimler Chrysler Provided By Them On The Recall Notice. I Was Told That Aside From Having My Vehicle Inspected There Was Nothing They Could Do Because There Wasn’t Another Dealership Within A 20 Mile Radius From My Home, Nor Could They Provide The Repair Part Any Sooner. The Recall Notice Indicates That The Fault In The Part “can Cause The Ball Joint To…separate. Ball Joint Separation Can Result In A Loss Of Steering Control And Could Cause A Crash Without Prior Warning.” And Now I’m Told To Wait 2 And 1/2 Months Before This Condition Can Be Corrected. That’s 2 And 1/2 Months Of Jeopardizing My Wife’s And My Safety. That Is Unacceptable To Me And Should Be To Both Daimler Chrysler And You. *jb

Received Recall Notice On jeep liberty On October 27,2006 And Began Calling Dealerships For Information And To Schedule A Repair. This Was After Calling Daimler Chrysler For Names Of Dealer Since Ours Had Gone Out Of Business. I Called Four Dealerships Within My Driving Area (35miles) Not One Of Them Offered To Take My Name, Number Or Any Other Information. I Was Told About The Parts Being On Back Order And To Call Back In A Week Or 2. This Is What I Did And Again Was Told The Same I Again Called D/c And The Customer Rep Told Me Again About The Parts Being Back Ordered And That Each Dealer Only Received 1-2 A Week, There Was Nothing Else She Could Do. Well I Have Been Calling Every Week Since Friday The 27th Of October And Finally On Thursday November 30th A Service Person Was Willing To Take My Name And Put It On A Waiting List. But My Question Is For How Long? My Auto Is My Only Transportation As Like Others, Should I Have An Accident With My Children In The Car Or Any Incident At All With Then In The Car, Daimler Chrysler Will Not Have Heard The Last Of Me. I Have Already Had To Replace 2 Front Tires For Reasons No One Could Explain (they Had Worn So Bad On The Inner Tread) And Have Been Keeping Close Eye On The New Ones. Can’t Afford Tires B/f They Are Needed Either. And Will The Dealer Make Sure My Car Is Aligned And Balanced? Since This Will Be Disrupted By The Repair Of The Lower Ball Joints? I Just Want To Be Safe, I Have Loved My liberty Since Buying It And My Son Is Looking Forward To Driving It In A Couple Of Years. But Do I Allow Him To? Thank You In Advance For You Help And Time. Any And All Assistance Will Be Good. *jb

I Received A Recall Notice From Daimler Chrysler About My 2004 jeep liberty About A Safety Recall F23-lower Ball Joints. This Recall States That “ball Joint Separation Can Result In A Loss Of Steering Control And Could Cause A Crash Without Prior Warning”. Trying To Make An Appointment With The Dealer To Repair The Problem Revealed There Would Be An 8 Week Wait Because The Parts Are Not Available. I Learned From The Dealer (and Later Verified By Calling Daimler Chrysler At 1.800.853.1403) That Daimler Chrysler Is Making Only 3 Replacement Parts Available To Dealers Per Week! If This Is Such A Potentially Dangerous Situation, Doesn’t Daimler Chrysler Have An Obligation To Make More Parts Available To Dealers Of Their Defective Cars? I Understand That We Are Talking About A Lot Of Cars, But That Does Not Change The Fact That I Am Driving A Defective Vehicle Which I Will Have To Continue To Drive For Another 8 Weeks. How Can Such A Huge Corporation Not Insure That Parts Are Available To Their Dealers In A More Timely Fashion? What Happens If Indeed A Crash Occurs Without Prior Warning During That Waiting Period? What Will Daimler Chrysler Say And Do Then? This Is A Shameful Example Of Violating The Public Trust-and This Car Is Not Cheap-they Are Certainly Not Saying-hold Your Payments Until The Car Is Repaired. What Can I Do But Wait?*jb

There Was A Recall For The Lower Ball Joints Of My 2003 jeep liberty. I Did Not Know Anything About This Recall Until I Received A Recall Letter On December 21,2006 Yet On Nov 25,2006 – I Lost Control Of My Vehicle And I Believe It May Have Had Something To Do With The Lower Ball Joints. It Clearly States In My Recall Notice That Water May Enter The Front Suspension Lower Ball Joints On My jeep And Cause Loss Of Control Of Vehicle……..this Is Exactly What Happened To Me. I Feel That Daimler Chrysler Should Be Responsible For Paying For My jeep Which Had To Be Totalled Out And Also The Costs I Accrued For Rental Vehicle And Other Such Expenses. If I Was Warned About This A Month Earlier – I Do Not Believe I Would Have Had An Accident. This Is A Very Serious Issue!!! *nm

Daimler Chrysler Is Not Sending The Dealership Sufficient Number Of Parts To Repair The Recalls.

He Said They Would Contact Me As Soon As The Part Came In. It Has Been Two Months And I Have Yet To Be Contacted. Recalls Are Supposed To Be Done In A Timely Manner. Is This “shortage” Of Parts Really The Problem Or It My Local Dealer. My Second Issue Is That Of The Floor Shifter. The Last Two Times I Drove My jeep, It Refused To Go Into Park Or 1st Gear. I Tried Pressing Harder On The Button On The Underside Of The Shifter, Turning My Vehicle Off, And Giving It Force. The First Time I Ended Up Driving To My Local Mechanic Who Couldn’t Get It Into Park At First Either, After Giving It Some Force It Went In, However He Seemed To Ignore The Fact That It Was A Problem With The Vehicle And Told Me To “make Sure I Press The Button In When Trying To Put It Into Park.” It Happened The Following Day When I Was Parking In Front Of My Home. I Struggled For 15 Minutes, Then Drove Around The Block And Tried Again. I Went Into Park Although Not Smoothly. I Will Be Contacting The Dealer Tomorrow. I Was Wondering If Anyone Else Had This Issue And Would It Be Covered Under Any Warranty. I Have Had Nothing But Negative Experiences With Dealers, Therefore I Am Dreading Having To Take My jeep And Pay For A “defect”. Please If You Have Any Information On These Issues, Let Me Know. Thank You For Your Time. *nm

I Was Driving From Canton, Ny To Corning, Ny. At Approximately 3:15 Pm On Feb 2nd I Made A Right Hand Turn And Experienced A Failure In The Drivers Side Ball-joint. The Suspension Caught On The Rim Of The Tire And I Was Barely Able To Get The Car Most Of The Way Off The Road. The Car Would Not Move After That. I Had To Call A Tow-truck And He Was Able To Drag The jeep Onto A Flat-bed And Transport The jeep To A Local Dealer. The Dealer Was Outstanding(peter Koch In Seneca Falls, Ny)! They Had An Emergency Set Of Ball-joints And Were Able To Fix My Car That Afternoon. The Drivers Side Front Rim Was Ruined And The Dealer Instructed Me To Have It Replaced. The Dealer Used The Spare Rim During The Repair. My Concern Is That 15 Minutes Earlier I Had Been Driving On The Ny State Through Way And Can Only Imagine What Would Have Happened Had This Joint Failed At 65 Mile Per Hour. I Have Been On The Waiting List At My Local Dealer For At Least Three Months And May Be Even 6 Months For This Recall Repair! This Is Unacceptable! I Checked With My Local Dealer This Morning And I Am Number 31 On The Recall List – The Dealer Said That They Receive Between Zero And 3 Sets Per Week. This Is Unacceptable. jeep Should Stop Producing New Vehicles Until This Potential Life-threatening Defect Has Been Fixed In The jeeps That Have Already Been Produced. I Have Seen This Defect Described As A Loosening Of The Ball-joint. I Believe That To Be An Understatement. This Part Fails And The Result Of A Failure Can Be Catastrophic. *jb

I Own A 2003 jeep liberty That Has Been Recalled For The Lower Ball Joints. The Recall Was Issued In September 2006. The Recall States Of The Importance Of Replacing The Ball Joints. But The Problem Is That The Dealers Can’t Get The Parts To Fix The Problem. I Have Been On A “waiting List” For Several Weeks Now, And Still Am About The 40th Person Down The List To Have This Service Performed. The Recall States That A Crash Could Occur Without Warning. I Realize Not All Vehicles May Be Affected, But How Do We Know If Our Vehicle Is Safe? I Could Understand A Few Days Or A Couple Of Weeks To Order A Part, But The Longer It Takes, The Safety Of My Vehicle Puts My Life In Jeopardy, As Well As Others On The Road. I Don’t Understand Why This Is Taking So Long On Such An Important Matter. It Could Take Months For My Dealer To Fix My Vehicle, And I Am Sure There Is A Long List After My Name. It Seems Like The Safety Of Myself, And Other jeep Consumers Is Not Being Taken Seriously. So Why Do They Send Out Recalls If They Can’t Get The Problem Fixed? *nm

Canceled Appointment That I Had Previously Made To Have Ball Joints Replaced, Since Recall Would Repair The Parts Free Of Charge. Never Received Phone Call, So Placed Call Myself To Dealership, Told It Would Be Several Weeks To Receive Parts As They Were On Back-order.
