SUMMARY

Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Ram 1500 trucks manufactured from February 27, 2008, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through October 20, 2011; model year 2009-2011 Dodge Dakota trucks manufactured from February 27, 2007, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through September 30, 2011; model year 2009 Chrysler Aspen trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008; and model year 2009 Dodge Durango trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008. The rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to a omission of an adhesive patch.

CONSEQUENCE

If the rear axle pinion nut loosens, the axle can lock up and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or a vehicle crash with little warning.

REMEDY

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during March 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.

Or you can just check your pinion nuts when you do your oil changes.

GO TO auto safety.org click on dodge then put last 8 of vin in will tell you if your on the recall list.

Checked my VIN and it looks like I'm not on the list. Weird how they know which trucks got the adhesive and which did not. When I check mine I can see something red on the threads. Hopefully it's the adhesive and mine will hold together.

Hmm, considering possible consequence (CRASH) you would think there would be immediate action instead of the projected March begin date. I know only a few weeks away but still!!

I was thinking the same thing, seems a bit odd.
