WASHINGTON — Chrysler is recalling 16,229 2008 Jeep Liberty vehicles because of defective windshield wipers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"The vehicles are equipped with windshield wiper motors that contain excessive adhesive that may allow for water intrusion, which could result in intermittent and eventually inoperative windshield wiper operation," said NHTSA in its recalls summary of the problem. "A failing or inoperative windshield wiper system will reduce a driver's visibility, which could result in a crash."
Jeep dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor. The recall is expected to begin sometime in November. Owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
Inside Line says: If you own one of the aforementioned Jeep Liberty vehicles, have it checked out ASAP with your dealer. — Anita Lienert, Correspondent
