DETROIT, Aug 2, 2006; Reuters reported that Chrysler Group on Wednesday said it would recall an estimated 832,500 Jeep Liberty vehicles because of a potential steering problem.

Chrysler, the U.S. operating unit of DaimlerChrysler AG, said that, in some of the vehicles, a ball joint in the the front suspension was prone to excessive wear and coming loose.

The automaker said that, in some cases, that joint could separate entirely causing drivers to lose steering control.

The voluntary recall covers 2002 to 2006 models of the Jeep Liberty sport utility vehicle, Chrysler said.

Owners of vehicles covered by the recall will be notified in September and work to repair the problem will be done at no cost to them, Chrysler said.
