Chrysler Recalls Over 350,000 Potentially Hazardous Vehicles

Chrysler Group LLC has announced the recall of 370,297 trucks and SUVs worldwide due to a manufacturing error that can cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle.

This recall affects 278,222 vehicles in the United States, and includes Ram 1500 pickup models from 2009 to 2012, Dodge Dakota pickup trucks from 2009 to 2011, Dodge Durango full-size SUVs, and the 2009 Chrysler Aspen.

Chrysler states that the rear axles were assembled with a fastener that lacked an adhesive patch. As a result, the rear axle pinion can come loose, causing a lock up of the vehicle and loss of control for the driver. Chrysler warns that this can occur with "little warning, increasing the likelihood of a crash." The manufacturer will repair the rear axle of the affected vehicles by installing a fastener for no charge.

Chrysler says that they know of 15 car accidents caused by this issue.
