Recall 17V541000

Rear Axle Shafts Are Too Short And Disengage From Rear Differential

Recall Details

The rear axle shafts for the vehicle are too short, resulting in them disengaging from the rear differential. Dealers will replace both halfshafts free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The rear axle shafts may not be of the proper length as needed for use in the vehicle; they may be too short. As a result, they may disengage from the rear differential, causing a loss of motive power and increasing risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Dodge must be performed by a Dodge dealership. Chrysler will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in September, 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. The Chrysler recall number is T55.
