DaimlerChrysler Has Recalled 2002 Jeep Liberty

(SafetyAlerts) -  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 2002 Jeep Liberty.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 102,000

Manufactured: January - November 2001

Defect: In the event of a frontal offset collision in these sport utility vehicles, sharp edges on the power steering pressure hose bracket could cut the front impact sensor wiring insulation, causing a short circuit in the wiring. This could delay the deployment of the air bag system, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.

Remedy: Dealers will wrap the front impact sensor wire harness with protective insulation to prevent the possibility of damage. DaimlerChrysler has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V373/DaimlerChrysler Recall No. A07].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls

your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
