A problem with a rear axle component, which could result in a loss of control forces Chrysler to a variety of vehicles including its full-size and mid-size pickups and several SUV models to remember.

All in all the service action fall 2009 to 2011 Dodge Dakota pickups and 2009 total 278.222 RAM 1500 pickups from 2009 to 2012 model year Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango SUVs.

In a separate announcement, Chrysler says it will recall 4,278 Dodge Viper sports car from the 2003 and 2004 model years. The result is a circuit board problem, that properly inflating airbag that could prevent the vehicle this service action. A similar problem already forced the recall of older Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee models.

The truck recall is the result of a missing adhesive patches that can to loosen the rear axle pinion. If the occurrence of the axis lock up "and a loss of vehicle control with little warning, increases the likelihood that a fall," warned the manufacturer emphasizes the problem is serious enough, it should not be ignored by owners.

The memory of the RAM pickup is not about the new model, which late last year - made his debut, but it comes as a little disappointing for the manufacturer, which has tried, its reputation for quality and reliability to improve.
