Summary:
MACK IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012 CHU, CXU, AND GU VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM OCTOBER 10, 2011, THROUGH NOVEMBER 17, 2011. HARDWARE USED TO SECURE THE WINDSHIELD WIPER LINKAGE TO THE WIPER MOTOR MAY NOT BE SUFFICIENTLY TORQUED, AND MAY CAUSE THE WINDSHIELD WIPER LINKAGE TO DETACH FROM THE WIPER MOTOR. AS A RESULT, THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS WILL NOT FUNCTION.

Consequence:
IF THIS OCCURS, UNDER CERTAIN DRIVING CONDITIONS THE DRIVER'S VISIBILITY WILL BE REDUCED, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy:
MACK WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND REPLACE THE HARDWARE ON AFFECTED VEHICLES
