Thumbs down Recall

Chrysler has issued a recall of select 2009 and 2010 model-year rear-wheel-drive vehicles (built between August 4-September 28, 2009) for a problem that might lead to the front wheels falling off. Apparently, some of these models left the Brampton, Ontario factory without a front spindle nut—a part that, to put it bluntly, keeps other parts in the front-wheel area from coming undone. "While driving, a tire and wheel separation could occur increasing the risk of a crash," says National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) report.

Prior to any issue, vehicles missing the part likely wouldn't drive any differently without the part. The recall covers 12,674 vehicles that potentially have the issue, including 2009 and 2010 Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, and Chrysler 300 models. Dealers will inspect the area and make sure the vehicles have a spindle nut. Chrysler started the recall last week, and owners of the affected vehicles should contact the dealership or call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 for more information.

You can go on and under "Contact" select "Vehicle Recall." That will let you enter the last 8 digits of your VIN to see if your car is affected.

if that nut was missing should it come apart after just a few turns? I just got my recall as well and plan to have it checked at 3k miles with the first oil change.
