I bought a 2002 Jeep Liberty 6 months ago. I don't know if this has anything to do with the recall I received 2 weeks ago about lower ball joints but this has happened 5 or 6 times, when the road is wet and I apply brakes I start to slide and cant stop. One day I was going to make a right turn and all I could do was slide, I wasn't even able to make that turn. I have read other complaints and see there are a lot of other people having the same problem, shouldn't this be a safety recall. This Jeep has approx. 55000 miles.
The contact stated the brakes roared when they were applied. The problem persisted for the past three months. During the past few weeks the noise became louder. She took the vehicle to the dealer once for the brakes. The dealer did not do any diagnostic testing or service on the vehicle. The manufacturer was contacted, and they referred her to the NHTSA.

This is a correction and addition to odi 10098071. I
made a left turn at about 10 mph. After the turn the vehicle skidded, hit curb and flipped. A police officer witnessed the incident and said that it appeared that the anti-lock brakes did not react. The car is also equipped with enhanced accident response system which obviously did not react.

I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty limited with 4 wheel anti-lock disc brakes. They have performed as designed on snow and ice until today when they did lock up and would not release. I was driving on a hill with 4 wheel drive engaged, braked and they locked. Harder pressure would not get them to pulsate and release/lock/release as designed. I skidded through a stop sign and off the road and only regained control by accelerating out of the skid. No damage or injury.
Jeep Liberty failed to stop, brakes locked up and caused skid into rearend of another vehicle.
Failure of brakes to stop in time to avoid a crash. Two crashes, one of which totaled the vehicle according to two body shops and an independant adjuster.

As we were going downhill on our street I applied the brakes to come to a stop at the end of our road. The brakes went straight to the floor. We rolled out onto hwy 61-67 where we collided with an oncoming van. Thankfully there were no injuries. We have recieved no assistance from the dealer or Chrysler. We purchased the vehicle for the safety of our yet to be born child and were nearly killed due to faulty brakes in a three month old vehicle. My wife is five months pregnant. The airbags failed to deploy as well. This is a very dangerous problem.
When coming to a stop applied brakes and engine will rev, and tires spin. Vehicle was moving forward, consumer has to shut off engine to stop vehicle. This has happened 3 times. Vehicle was taken to dealer twice, could not duplicate the problem.
Consumer noticed while traveling on wet pavement and depressing brakes there was extended stopping distance.
