Government upgrades investigation of 2002-2003 Jeep Liberty

WASHINGTON (AP) ó The government has upgraded an investigation into Chrysler LLC's Jeep Liberty following reports of drivers losing control of their sport-utility vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it has received 22 complaints of the upper ball joint separating on either of the front wheels. The problem can lead to the front wheel collapsing, which can disable the vehicle or cause the driver to lose control.

The investigation involves more than 300,000 2002 and 2003 model year Liberty 4X4 SUVs.

I had a 2003 Liberty Limited 4X4. I traded it at the two year mark with 26,000 miles due to this very issue. You could feel and hear a clicking in the steering linkage. The selling dealer wouldn't do anything about it, so I did. I am very glad they changed up the front suspension before building the Nitro.
