2002 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #5

Sep 102008

Liberty 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Jeep Liberty. The contact's vehicle was repaired in 2007 according to NHTSA campaign id number 06V288000 (suspension:front:control arm:lower ball joint). One year later, while attempting to make left turns, he heard a loud popping noise coming from the rear driver's side tire. He has not had the vehicle inspected to determine the cause of the failure. The upper part of the radiator also produced a hairline crack, causing radiator fluid to leak from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who found the source of the leak at the radiator tube. The failure mileage was 60,000 and current mileage was 81,000. Updated 10/14/08. The lower ball joint failed. Updated 10/15/08

The contact owns a 2002 Jeep Liberty. While starting the vehicle, the electronic cooling fan blade separated and penetrated the shroud. A piece of the blade penetrated and stuck in the insulation of the hood. The dealer was notified and gave the contact the run-around. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign id number 06V199000 (engine and engine cooling:cooling system:fan) for the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle has not been inspected by a mechanic or dealer at this time. The contact has pictures. The current and failure mileages were 113,000.

Liberty 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

2002 Jeep Liberty, with 40,000 miles, A/C compressor is out and apparently not covered under warranty. This is a premature breakdown of this item. We are being told the repairs would exceed $800, which in itself is excessive.
