Dodge Nitro Recalls
The active head restraints may not deploy as expected during a rear impact collision.
The drive shaft may break while driving. If this were to occur, the vehicle could no longer move under its own power. Additionally, the impact at the transfer case if the drive shaft were to break could cause the airbags to deploy.
Steering capability may be lost due to a missing or incorrectly installed steering column pivot rivet. Loss of steering capability increases the risk of a crash.
The windshield wipers may fail, resulting in impaired visibility during inclement weather conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.
The brakes could fail without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.
The parking brake mechanism is made up of a series of brake components that secure the rear wheels when the parking brake is engaged. A portion of the parking brake lever, called the clutch drum, may not allow the vehicle to remain secured. This means the vehicle may roll unexpectedly, which is a safety issue.
The engine may stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.
