Chrysler recalling 16,000 vehicles to fix windshield wiper system

Article by Christian A., on November 16, 2010

Chrysler announced a recall of about 16,000 vehicles to fix potentially defective windshield wiper systems. This latest recall will not be good news to those who own certain 2008 model year Jeep Liberty SUVs, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. According to Chrysler, it has received a high number of complaints of windshield motors failing.

After analyzing the field data, the company concluded that vehicles built May 2008 through June 2008 had elevated levels of wiper motor replacements.

Later built Jeep Liberty models are not affected by this problem as Chrysler began using wiper module assemblies with an enhanced motor magnet adhesive application process as of June 27, 2008.

The vehicles are equipped with windshield wiper motors that contain excess adhesive that may allow for water intrusion which could lead to intermittent and eventually inoperative windshield wiper operation.

Should the system fail, driver's visibility could dramatically be decreased, potentially resulting in a crash.Owners of vehicles affected by the recall will be informed via mail and they will have to take their car to an authorized service where technicians will replace the faulty motor at no cost to the owner.
