Jeep Liberty Investigation Upgraded

Federal safety investigators at Nhtsa, the federal safety agency in charge of vehicle safety recalls, are continuing their investigation of Chrysler Jeep Liberty vehicles that reportedly lose control due to upper ball joint separation in the front wheels. The ball joint problem can lead to front wheel collapse, even while the vehicle is in motion or on the highway.

The investigation involves more than 300,000 model years 2002 and 2003 Liberty 4x4 SUV vehicles.

Most of the reported failures occurred when the vehicle was being driven at speeds under 20 mph, federal safety investigators say, but some have been as high as 75 mph.

The upgrading of the investigation puts it into an Engineering Analysis in order to "assess the scope, frequency and safety consequences of the alleged defect" Nhtsa says. This is a sign that federal safety investigators are getting very serious about this reported defect.

Chyrsler recalled more than 800,000 Jeep Liberty SUV vehicles in August 2006 to fix the front suspension lower ball joint, covering model years 2002 to 2006.
