Chrysler Recalls over 361,000 Trucks and SUVs over Axle Fastener Issue

Another major automotive recall

It's been a big six months for vehicle recalls for several manufacturers in the automotive industry. The latest major vehicle recall comes from Chrysler with the announcement that it is recalling over 361,000 trucks and SUVs to address a problem with the fastener used on the rear axle. The specific number of vehicles recalled adds up to 361,819 in North America.

Vehicles include the 2009 Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen SUVs. The recall also covers 2009 through 2011 Dodge Dakota pickups and 2009 through 2012 Ram 1500 pickups. According to Chrysler, some these vehicles were assembled using axle fasteners that could loosen and fail.

The NHTSA says that if the fastener failed it could lead to wheel lockup and loss of vehicle control with little warning. Chrysler says that it's unaware of any injuries resulting from this flaw and its franchised dealers will install a retainer at no cost to customers to secure the fastener.

On The Road: Project Model T

Aug 1 2014 12:07pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

CALGARY — Ford’s Model T was an intrepid vehicle, and their rugged dependability meant they were sold worldwide. While it’s hard to imagine there would be many Model Ts in Holland, there must have been a few. As a young lad, Tom Van Dijk remembers seeing them in his home country, and the fascination simply grew stronger when he moved to Canada in 1974. Van Dijk arrived in Calgary in 1979, where he worked until the ...
