Chrysler Recalls More Than 600 Jeep Liberty Vehicles Due to Possible Glass Issue

Chrysler is recalling 644 2008 Jeep Liberty vehicles because they may have been assembled using an incorrect urethane, according to information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) Office of Defects Investigations. The vehicles in question were assembled at the company's Toledo North Assembly Plant in June.

"We [received] a bad batch of urethane adhesive," says Max Gates, spokesperson for Chrysler. "It didn't have the UV stabilizer in it, so it could break down."

According to Gates, someone in the plant noticed the container of adhesive didn't have the right label on it during production of the vehicles-after some of them had left the plant.

"They caught [the problem] within three days, so it was probably noticed pretty quickly," says Gates.

Dealers will replace the windshield and/or fixed rear quarter glass for customers. Gates says he doesn't see an issue with a separate glass shop replacing the glass, with the exception of the reimbursement issue for consumers-as Chrysler has only guaranteed the glass will be replaced free of charge by certified Jeep dealer.

Gates could not reveal what company supplied the adhesive.
