Recall: Chrysler Ram and Dodge Dakota

In the past week we’ve had recalls from Kellogg’s and Toyota.  Now here’s another one to tell you about.

This time, it’s for Dodge trucks. The company is recalling over 44,000 Dodge Ram 1500 and Dodge Dakota trucks because of possible rear axle problems.

The issue is that the pinion nut will loosen on some trucks due to a lack of thread adhesive; it could cause the rear axle to lock up and the driver to lose control.

The NHTSA says there have been eight incidents at speeds over 35 miles per hour and in one complaint, the driveshaft separated from the rear axle and punctured the gas tank.

Recall notices will be sent in November.  Dealers will install a nut retainer free of charge.  If you’d like to know more, Chrysler’s recall hotline is 1-800-247-9753.

The website AutoBlog.com has complete information and the entire NHTSA recall notice.
