Of course I have a 1990 Jeep wrangler. No one seems to know what the body part is called located above the cowl and beneath the windshield seal. The reason is that it leaks water down behind the dash. I had a new windshield frame with new seals 3 years ago but when they changed the windshield wiper motor they did something because now it leaks again

Do you drive a 1990 JEEP WRANGLER?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
