Summary of Complaint

THE FRONT LOWER BALL JOINTS FAILED A SECOND TIME AND WERE REPLACED AGAIN PER NHSTA ID # 06V-288 RECALL F23. THE OFFICIAL MOPAR WEBSITE SAYS FAQ SAYS THAT "Q ONCE THE RECALL IS COMPLETED, WHAT IS THE WARRANTY ON THE REPAIR IF THE RECALLED COMPONENT FAILS AGAIN? A IF THERE IS A SUBSEQUENT FAILURE, WE WILL REVIEW THE SITUATION AND IF, IN FACT, IT IS FOR THE SAME CONDITION AS THE RECALL, FCA US WILL REPAIR THE VEHICLE FOR FREE." I AM BEING TOLD BY A FCA CASE MANAGER THAT THERE IS A 2 YEAR 24 MONTH WARRANTY ON THE PARTS INSTALLED AS PART OF THIS SAFETY RECALL. THE MOPAR WEBSITE FAQ MAKES NO MENTION OF THIS AND I CAN NOT BE TOLD WHERE TO FIND THIS 2 YEAR 24 MONTH WARRATY. WHY ISN'T FCA FOLLOWING THEIR OWN POLICY STATED TO THE PUBLIC? WHY IS FCA BEING DECEPTIVE AND INACCURATE? HOW SHOULD THIS FALSEHOOD BE ADDRESSED?

Summary of Complaint

WHEN EVER I FUEL THIS VEHICLE UP FUEL SPILLS OUT WITHER IN AN AUTOMATIC SHUTOFF MODE (THERE'S A LOT THAT SPILLS LIKE THIS) OR DOING IT MANUALLY AS SLOWLY AS PUMP WILL ALLOW. I AM FEARFUL OF A FIRE OR EXPLOSION DURING THIS PROCESS. I LOOKED UP ON LINE AND IN SOME OF THE JEEP FORUMS THIS SEEMS TO A THING THE 2005 JEEP LIBERTY DOES. ON ONE OF THE FORUMS HTTP://WWW.JEEPFORUM.COM/FORUM/F28/2005-LIBERTY-SPILLS-GAS-1184293/ 03-20-2011, 02:08 PM THE POSTER FLYORDIE SAYS "JEEP HAS ISSUED A SILENT RECALL ON THIS PROBLEM. JUST SO YOU ALL KNOW. ***** AND MOAN ENOUGH AT THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY WILL FIX IT ON THEIR DIME." WHY IS IT SILENT? WHY DON'T THEY JUST ISSUE THE RECALL AND SAVE SOME ONE OR THEIR FATHER OR MOTHER OR KID FRO BEING KILLED WHEN ITS PREVENTABLE? I CHATTED WITH AN ONLINE REP FROM JEEP A [XXX] AND SHE GAVE ME A COMPLAINT NUMBER [XXX]: THE CASE NUMBER IS [XXX] . THIS WAS AT THEIR LIVE CHAT ROOM ON OWNER CONNECT (MOPAR).
