farout: 2003 Liberty Sport, 88k miles(40K on the replaced ball joints in 2004) I live in northwest Ohio-only miles from Jeep/Toledo where they build the crap. I did speak to the District Mgn for Jeep with no resolution. I did also post the problem with nhtsa site(one week later they announced another recall). All I wanted was my $500 deductable reinbursed to me and my ins co to be reinbursed so the premium would go back down. I will not obtain legal advise as I would pay more and have more stress than what it's worth. WOULD NOT OWN A JEEP LIBERTY OR A CRYSLER PRODUCT AGAIN. Thanks for for feedback.

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited since new. I had the ball joints replaced during the initial re-call when the car was new. This car always seemed to have trouble tracking in a streaight line. I am constantly steering to keep the car straight. I recently had 4 top of the line Michelins installed and the front end aligned and the car still has this problem.
Has anybody else out there experienced this?

Same Here; I have a 2004. Car is aligned based on 4 different mechanics at 4 different shops. I have no idea but it pulls to the right and no one can fix it b/c car is aligned perfectly. I just tune it out and don't even pay attention to it anymore.

Mine doesn't pull to one side or the other, it swims back and forth.

that's scary; have you called the actual Jeep 800 number? They aren't but so helpful but maybe there is something they might know of? I wish i could help more.

my 03 is a bit jittery at low speeds but doesn't pull. It is fine over 15-20 mph but just off idle it does feel vague and a bit loose. Maybe the new recall fix will cure it but I remember a post a while back from europe that the front suspension was engineered with rubber bushings to allow heavy off roading and the compromise was some looseness in the front end. Who knows. Still love my Liberty.

Yeah I wouldn't trade mine either; I still feel safe and I love driving it

Rubber bushings are installed on steering box (transmission). I had some problems with pulling, but they were fixed. Tried some changes with bushings (my sooner posts). No influence on pulling. Im sure it can be fixed with alignment of lower arms. My Liberty is 04/2002, CRD 2,5 l, manual, 75.000 miles.

renegader: I just saw your post about the 2.5 CRD. I wish you would join in at the Jeep Liberty Diesel Forum. I have a 2005 CRD with almost 19,000 miles, I got it Sept. 29,05. We are more pleased with it all the time. What kind of fuel mileage do you get. How much is diesel a liter over there? I am always interested in Jeeps in Europe, and the cost of things compared to here.

Hi farout, I am getting about 10,5 liter/100km on board computer, the real fuel consumption is about 10% higher. Look at my sooner posts, there were more about my fuel consumtion displayed as mileage.
Diesel Fuel costs about 1 EUR/liter, doesn´t matter if here in Czech, or in Austria or in Germany.
Now after installation of Powertrax locking unit in rear axle surprisingly I get only 9,5l/100 km on board computer - about 7,5% better!!! TracLok had to go out because of problems.
