The 4 wheel drive transfer case is protected from the hot exhaust system by a heat shield. This shield can come loose and rub on the drive shaft. Over time, this rubbing could weaken and potentially cause the drive shaft to break, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will add a support bracket to the heat shield to correct this concern.

Chrysler is recalling 2008 Jeep Liberty models because the windshield wiper motors may contain excess adhesive that could allow for water intrusion. This may result in intermittent and eventually inoperative windshield wiper operation, which reduces the driver's visibility and increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor free of charge.
