Liberty 4WD

Chrysler had a recall on the ball joint of a Jeep Liberty. Today while driving my car began making a noise and was difficult to brake and steer. I called the dealer and he said bring it down. I asked if it was safe to drive as I explained the problem to him. He said he could not tell me that but to bring it right down. I did then I had to hang around since everyone was at lunch. Within two minutes they told me it was the ball joint and Chrysler had put out a recall. I said I did not get notice. They said it was Chrysler responsibility. However, they also said they only have 20 new ones as there is a shortage. When I searched on the web today this recall can cause a person to lose control of their car. Luckily I did not. But I believe Chrysler has a responsibility to notify the owners immediately before they lose control of the car.
