Chrysler Recalls More Than 320,000 Pickups, SUVs Because of Potential Safety Hazard With Wipers

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. May 11, 2004; The AP reporteds that DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group is recalling 320,188 Dodge Durango sport utility vehicles and Dakota pickups because of a potential safety hazard involving the windshield wipers, federal regulators said Tuesday.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said water could get into the windshield wiper motor on some vehicles, causing corrosion and malfunctions of the wipers.

Vehicles involved are 2002-2003 Durangos and 2002-2004 Dakotas, NHTSA said. Dealers will replace the front windshield wiper module, the agency said.

Owners should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
