Actually, a recall does not mean that there IS a problem with a given used vehicle, just means there may be or may have been, and all you need to do is look the vehicle over carefully before purchase. Ball joints are replaceable, and if they have put out a notice, most likely they have a fix for the given issue. I have a fellow employee where I work who has a Liberty, and they LOVE it. Personaly I don't care for them because of the IFS, but thats a personal choice. Don't pass on sumtin just because of a recall notice, u might be passing on the best vehicle for you. Just my .99 (inflation you know)

90 XJ 4.0 lift 4 1/2", 31 x 10 1/2 MT's
