Chrysler Group is recalling 210,000 Jeep Libertys in northern states because road salts could cause part of the SUV’s rear suspension to corrode and break.
A rear lower control arm could break after becoming weakened by rust. That, in turn, could lead to a loss of control and a crash. The lower control arm helps keep the rear suspension from moving forward and back.
The Jeeps in question are from the 2004 and 2005 model years and were manufactured between July 2003 and July 2005.
