  • miles


The contact owns a 2003 Jeep Liberty. The contact had not experienced a failure until after the vehicle was repaired per NHTSA campaign number: 15V673000 (air bags). A day after the repair, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was able to be restarted and was driven to the contact's residence and parked. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where the speed sensor was replaced, but the failure continued. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the differential needed to be replaced. An independent mechanic took pictures of the differential and the contact took the part back to the dealer. The contact was waiting for a response from the manufacturer to determine a repair solution. The failure mileage was not available.
