Chrysler recalls certain model year 2007-2008 Dodge Nitro and Jeep Liberty 4X2 vehicles over faulty transfer case heat shield

Chrysler

Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2007-2008 Dodge Nitro 4X2 vehicles manufactured March 21, 2006, through March 1, 2008; and 2008 Jeep Liberty 4X2 vehicles manufactured February 15, 2007, through March 1, 2008. The transfer case heat shield may drop down and rub on the drive shaft, weakening it and potentially causing the drive shaft to break.

If the drive shaft breaks, a section of it can strike the transfer case tunnel with enough force that the airbag computer will believe the vehicle is in a crash and thus deploy the airbags. Additionally, the drive shaft failure will result in a loss of motive power. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash.

Chrysler has agreed to notify owners, and dealers will add a bracket to support the rear of the heat shield, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during May 2013.

This happened to my 2007 Dodge Nitro. My coworker and I. We're sitting at a light and when I pressed on the gas there was a loud explosion and my air
bags deployed! I checked to see if the person behind had hit me, but they didn't and we jumped out the car, because at the time I had NO idea what had just happen.

IT was very traumatic and my insurance Fred Loya at the time was NO HELP.

I'm glad they finally are owning up that something was wrong!

The selling dealership had me tow the unit in, but I was out 600.00 for them to fix the issue!
