 Description of the problem2002 jeep liberty, lower left ball joint failed. Vehicle was traveling at approx. 35 mph going straight ahead when the ball joint separated. The joint settled into the inside of the front wheel damaging the wheel and the wheel contacted the rear of the inner fender damaging the fender liner. No other apparent damage, driver was able to get the liberty stopped off the road way. Towed the jeep to the dealership. They replaced both front lower ball joints free of charge, ordered a replacement wheel and inner fender also to be installed for free. This vehicle had the lower ball joints replaced once before under the initial recall. Absolutely no faith in the manufacturer to actually resolve these failures. I fully expect to have them replaced again in the future. *nm
