Recall Alert: 2002-03 Jeep Liberty, 2002-04 Grand Cherokee

Liberty500
Chrysler is recalling 744,822 model-year 2002 and 2003 Jeep Liberty vehicles and model-year 2002-04 Jeep Grand Cherokees due to a problem with the airbag-control module, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects Liberty vehicles manufactured between Jan. 9, 2001, and March 28, 2003, and Grand Cherokees manufactured from Feb. 13, 2001, through May 23, 2003. A component in the airbag module could fail, causing the front and side curtain airbags or the seat belt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated. This increases the risk of an injury.

Chrysler will notify owners in January, and dealers will install a supplemental jumper harness to the airbag-control module at no cost. Owners can contact Chrysler at 800-247-9753 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

I like Jeeps I've on the few of them now its sad the last one I bought was a 2002 Liberty Sport and I had to put a trailer hitch on it when I actually bought it from A Jeep dealership who should have known about the fuel tank problems being wide open and now I have problems with the front end with your joints and ball joints and drive shaft and what not I wish the dealership what I told me about that and maybe hit gave me a little help on what I was going to go through

I have had nothing but problem after problem with my 2002 jeep liberty. It is with no doubt a complete night mare what I have been through with this junk of a car!!! I have made many many of calls to jeep and Chrysler, no one really cares at all. There will be more deaths how very sad and they only care when they are selling you a car and taking your money, shame on you! Can't seem to find anyone that has the parts for all the recalls or they just don't want to do it. If someone cares you can reach me at my Email address
