Dodge Dakota and Ram 1500 Trucks Recalled Over Crash Threat
Dodge Dakota and Ram 1500 trucks of the 2009 and 2010 model years are being recalled by Chrysler. 44,300 vehicles suffer from a defect wherein poor adhesion could lead to the loosening of a pinion nut on the rear axle. This could cause the axle itself to lock into place, leading the driver to lose control of the vehicle, thus potentially leading to a crash. Owners will receive word from Chrysler in November, at which point they’ll be able to bring the vehicles in for free repairs.
