The rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to an undersized pinion spline that can allow relative motion between the nut and companion flange.
If the rear axle pinion nut loosens, the axle can lock up and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or a vehicle crash with little warning.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. The recall began on November 7, 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.
