12 SUVs have been asked back for windscreen glass that could detach while on the move.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia has issued a recall for the older-generation 2008 Jeep Cherokee, over a fault with the windscreen and quarter glass.
According to the manufacturer, “the windshield and/or quarter glass may have been installed using an incorrect urethane adhesive”.
If the condition occurs, FCA says the glass could separate from the vehicle while in motion, which poses a hazard for the driver and other road users, also increasing the risk of an accident.
There are 12 units affected by this recall, sold from 20 June 2007 through 11 June 2010 – a VIN list is available here.
Owners affected by this notice will be contacted by FCA Australia, and advised to schedule and appointment with their preferred dealer for the inspection and repair of their vehicle, free of charge.
