(AP) Chrysler is recalling more than 78,000 midsize SUVs because the drive shafts can break.


The recall affects 2007 and 2008 Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro SUVs.


Chrysler says in documents filed with the government that a heat shield can drop and rub against the drive shaft, causing it to wear and break. If the shaft breaks, the SUVs will lose power and the side air bags may inflate. Chrysler says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries from the problem.


Dealers will install a bracket to hold the shield in place at no cost to customers.


The recall affects 61,400 vehicles in the U.S., 13,700 in Mexico, 1,000 in Canada and 2,300 elsewhere.


Chrysler says it has received less than 40 complaints about broken drive shafts in the vehicles.
