Chrysler adds 137,000 Jeeps to recall list
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Chrysler has added more than 137,000 Jeep Liberty SUVs to a recent safety recall.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Chrysler has added the 2006 and 2007 model years to the recall over concerns that the lower control arms in the rear suspension can rust and break, possibly causing a crash.
Chrysler says it will inspect the parts and replace them for free if needed. The company knows of no crashes or injuries from the problem.
The recall now totals nearly 347,000 vehicles. An initial recall in March cited about 200,000 Libertys from the 2004 and 2005 model years for the same problem. The recall covers vehicles in 20 states and Washington, D.C., where salt is used to clear snow and ice from the roads.
