May 10, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 239,904 older-model SUVs in the U.S. to replace their rear lower control arms.
Water may accumulate inside the components, making them subject to corrosion and, potentially, fracture. Such a condition may compromise driver-control.
FCA US is aware of a single potentially related accident, but no related injuries.
The campaign affects certain 2004-2007 Jeep Liberty SUVs. The model is no longer in production.
Service will be provided free of charge and is expected to become available next month. Customers will be advised accordingly.
Customers with additional concerns may contact their dealers or call the FCA US Recall Information Center at (800)-853-1403.
FCA US advises all customers to heed the instructions on recall notices.
Additional vehicles are being recalled in Mexico (est. 49,712) and certain markets outside the NAFTA region (est. 36,199).
