DaimlerChrysler has announced a recall for 1999-2002 model Jeeps while Liberty sales keep improving.

Jeep Recall

DaimlerChrysler is recalling over 1.1 million 2000-2002 Jeep Wranglers, 2000-2001 Jeep Cherokees and 1999-2002 Jeep Grand Cherokees that were manufactured between June 1998 and March 2002 due to a mainfold. design flaw.

On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 4.0L engines, the design of the intake and exhaust manifolds could allow debris to accumulate at the #3 cylinder location, possibly resulting in a vehicle fire.

Dealers will install a manifold shield to modify the airflow characteristics and to prevent the accumulation of debris in the area of the #3 cylinder. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began May 13, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Liberty Sales Improving

Chrysler Group reported U.S. sales of 202,822 units for June, a four percent decline compared to the same period last year.

Sales of the Jeep(R) Liberty rose to 13,243 units in the latest month. That result marked a 55 percent gain from year-earlier levels, which was the second month of sales for the new compact sport-utility.

I just had my 01 Wrangler in for the recall. It
didn't take long for them to add the shield,
maybe an hour. I had the Jeep in last month
for an ignition switch recall, and they
completed that fairly quickly also.
