2005 jeep liberty Reviews and News

2009 Toyota Tacoma Front Three Quarter
Model year 2004-2005 Jeep Liberty SUVs are being recalled because of rear lower control arms that are susceptible to corrosion issues. Chrysler issued the recall and released a prepared statement stating that it will focus on vehicles “sold or currently registered in salt belt states as defined by the NHSTA.” Additionally, the Toyota Camry, Venza, and Tacoma are being recalled. The Camry and Venza are targeted for stop lamp switch issues, while the Tacoma is being recalled for a faulty steering wheel cable.

As more and more people in the United States become interested in fuel economy-even if the prices we pay here are nothing compared with what Europeans pay at the pumps-the decision by Jeep to bring in a diesel version of its Liberty SUV is pretty smart thinking. SUVs are the most egregious gas guzzlers you can buy, so if you can still provide reasonable fuel economy and maintain SUV virtues such as a high seating position and all-around versatility, what's not to like?We recently drove the Liberty Sport diesel in England-where it is called, no kidding, the Cherokee-and found that you don't give up anything in the name of saving the planet. (OK, so the California Air Resources Board and our technical editor, Don Sherman, have issues with diesels, but if you believe that global warming is real, then cutting CO2 emissions is a must. Cars aren't the only culprits, however-just look at the current American trend to build houses that are way too big and take massive amounts of energy to heat and cool.)

SUSPENSION:FRONT:HUB
Summary
Timken is recalling certain non-formed, front wheel hubs, part number HA599467, which were sold to retail and automotive distributors in the automobile aftermarket as front wheel hub replacements designed only for use on certain 2002 through 2005, 4X4, non-ABS, Jeep Liberty vehicles. These front wheel hub units can be mistakenly sold to owners and installed on 4X2 versions of the Jeep vehicles.
Consequences
If the non-formed hub unit is installed on a Jeep Liberty 4x2 model (which does not use an axle nut for hub retention), the vehicle wheel will not be secure and a front wheel separation may occur, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Timken has notified retail stores that have received the subject parts. The front wheel hubs will be replaced free of charge. Owners who may have purchased the affected units should contact Timken at 1-330-471-3693 for more information. This recall is being conducted by Timken, not Chrysler/Jeep.
