Chrysler is recalling 16,229 2008 Jeep Liberty SUVs over potentially defective windshield wipers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In certain models, the windshield wiper motors may contain excess adhesive that may allow water to leak in and cause the wipers to become inoperative. The failed or compromised wipers could reduce visibility, resulting in a crash.
Chrysler dealerships will replace the windshield wiper motor free of charge. The recall is expected to begin sometime this month. For more info, owners can contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
