Recall 16V044000

Windshield Separates From Vehicle During Crash

Recall Details

The windshield may have been installed using expired primer for the urethane adhesive, and may not be sufficiently secure to the vehicle body. In an accident, it could dislodge and increase risk of occupant injury. Dealers will replace the windshield free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The windshield could separate from the vehicle during a crash due to insufficient adhesive primer being used. This could increase risk of injury.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your affected Chrysler or Dodge must be performed by a Chrysler or Dodge dealership. Chrysler will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning in March, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Chrysler or Dodge dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
