Received a recall for a safety issue. Took Jeep to dealership in mnt home, they confirmed my Jeep was part of the recall and needed to order the parts. I informed them that I traveled 45 min on the freeway 80mph for work so it was urgent to fix. They said they would call me back with an appointment early the following week(this was on 7/11). They never called back. I have called them numerous times. One guy told me I wasnt even in their system and said he would call other dealers to try and get the part. Everytime I call nobody is available to take my calls. Its a safey driving issue and nobody has the part"?" my vehicle is getting worse and is now at a point where you can hear it cracking or snapping and scary to drive as it is all over the place and swervy.

Have already filed a complaint. Updating information. Complaint #11105312. My vehicle was manufactured 9 days after the cutoff for the 2006 recall # 06V288000. My vehicle had the failure of the front lower control arm ball joint. It was not art of the 2006 recall however, it is part of the current recall for the rear lower control arm ball joints. The original cutoff build date was March 15, 2006. My vehicle was manufactured just 9 days later on March 24, 2006. It seems far too much a coincidence that my vehicle has the same rear ball joints that are subject to recall and replacement, which Chrysler has done, but the front ball joints were not covered in the original recall. I was going 35mph when the part failed. The failure came without any warning and was instantaneous. The ball joint broke and instantly pierced the alloy rim and deflated the tire. Had I been going 70mph, I would have flipped and rolled instantly. Furthering the issue is as best I can determine, the front and rear ball joints are the same part. I am reporting that since my initial complaint, I found out my vehicle was built a mere 9 days after the original recall cutoff date.

I had to have my front suspension ball joints replaced. I understand that my vechile was not on the recall list but it was built in March 2006. They were about to fall apart when I took them to be repaired. I think they should be covered under this recall. I heard a noise and when I took what I thought was breaks. I was told it was lucky that the ball joints had not fallen out. I had just got back from a four out drive to the beach. Thanks for your help.

I have a dealership converted right hand drive Jeep Liberty. I was slowing down pulling up to a mailbox and the left lower ball joint snapped in half. Two days later I was pulling away from a mailbox and the right lower ball joint snapped in half. Both times I was in motion. Luckily, I was going slow and they were on back roads. I had a mechanic check all joints prior to them breaking and he said everything looked fine. My husband and father even checked after him. I checked my VIN number and it was not listed.
