DaimlerChrysler's Japan unit on Thursday told the Transport Ministry it is recalling 4,122 Jeep Cherokees to replace a defective ball joint in the vehicle's front wheel with the new one.

The vehicles involved were imported between July 2001 and May 2006.

There were no reports of accidents because of the defect, which might corrode inside the joint and could come off the vehicle's steering knuckle in worst case, the ministry said.
