Vehicles Affected: Approximately 425,600 model-year 2019-20 Ram 1500 and 1500 Classic pickup trucks and Jeep Compass SUVs produced before March 3

The Problem: The windshield wiper arm or arms may loosen, possibly causing the wipers to not operate properly and reducing the driver’s visibility in certain weather conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will tighten the wiper nuts for free.

What Owners Should Do: Jeep and Ram parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners later this month. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
