DETROIT (AP) - Fiat Chrysler is recalling 206,668 Jeep Cherokee SUVs because the windshield wipers can stop working unexpectedly. Cherokees from the 2014 model year are affected. There are 158,671 in the U.S., 18,366 in Canada and 3,582 in Mexico. The rest were sold outside North America. Fiat Chrysler says static buildup may occur if the wipers are used when it's dry. Customers will be notified and dealers will repair the vehicles for free.
