Exclamation 2004 - 2005 Jeep Liberty recall.

Posting this up as a lot of us use the above as our 'fishing car' due to it being a 4x4.

The following is a cut and paste from Consumer Reports; you can sign up for these free alerts even if you don't subscribe to the magazine (which you should)

Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
JEEP / LIBERTY 2004-2005

Manufacturer:
CHRYSLER GROUP LLC

Component:
Suspension:Rear

Potential Number of Units Affected:
209,724

Summary:
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2004 and 2005 Jeep Liberty vehicles manufactured from July 3, 2003, through July 14, 2005, originally sold, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. Some vehicles may be equipped with rear lower control arms that can experience a rear suspension lower control arm fracture due to excessive corrosion.

Consequence:
A fracture of the rear lower control arm may result in a loss of vehicle control and may lead to a vehicle crash.

Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear lower control arms on all affected vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in the NHTSA defined salt belt states, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin by the end of April 2012. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403

Thank you! One of my vhicles is an '04 Liberty (with more that 109,000 miles), so I'll have to get it checked!
