Recall 17V097000

Front Driveshaft Disconnects From Vehicle

Recall Details

The eight bolts that fasten the driveshaft to the powertrain of the vehicle may loosen and allow the driveshaft to disconnect from the vehicle. Dealers will replace all eight driveshaft bolts free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front driveshaft bolts may loosen, allowing the driveshaft to separate from the vehicle. This would cause loss of acceleration and moving power, and could result in a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Chrysler or Dodge must be performed by a Chrysler or Dodge dealership, respectively. Chrysler will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in March, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Chrysler or Dodge dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
