2008 Jeep Liberty RecallsThe Drive Shaft May Break While Driving
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.

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.
