Chrysler has included an additional 137,000 vehicles in a previous Jeep Liberty recall, upping the total number of units covered to 356,900. The campaign initially included 2004 and 2005 Liberty models, but has been expanded to include units from model years 2006 and 2007 as well. The campaign is aimed at vehicles sold or registered in States with a high probability of rust, where the rear lower control arms may corrode at an accelerated rate and fracture. Such a failure could cause a loss of control, which could lead to an accident.

According to CNN Money, Jeep maintains there have been no reports of accidents or injuries, though the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation into the failures back in April after receiving nine reports of control arm fractures.

Chrysler will replace the control arms free of charge, and those owners who have already had the components replaced will be reimbursed.

        Really I had 14 warranty issues with my 2004 liberty since I bought it not including this recall.

      Just had mine done under the recall. The Liberty has serious rust issues. Mine has big rust spots on all the doors, plus the exhaust system rusted out.

          Because I am broke. My 2004 liberty with 65800 miles just went in for service again today because the rear brake caliber froze in place. That is after spending $700 last month to replace the ac compressor.

      I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty (bought it used) and love it ! No repair problems so far and I drive at least 500 miles a week ( 55 mi one way to work and 55 mi back home 5 days a week, you add it up). Only had to do regular maintainance, oil changes, tire changes, brakes, etc. Not sure why you guys think these things are a "piece of crap", I must have the only good one out there! Yay me !

      What if people are driving these recalled cars and don't know they've been recalled? Or they are traveling in rural areas without benefit of the car dealership who can fix them? Congressional legislation could change that. It's called The Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act, HR 1449. it allows motorists to choose where to have their later model vehicles repaired, either at a dealership or independent. So, if you're driving a recall and need help and there's no dealership, you can get it fixed asap. And then argue with the car company. Go to: www.righttorepair.org and sign the peition to your legislators.

      Last Chrysler product I had direct experience with was my Dad's 1958 Plymouth Fury. What a gorgeous ride! Wish I still had her. Yeah, it required a fair amount of maintenance, but at least you could do most of the work yourself. Oh, and did I mention, what a gorgeous ride!!!
