 Description of the problemWhile driving on the freeway at 60 mph the rear axle pinion nut loosened itself off causing the drive shaft to drop. This caused the vehicle to make a loud boom and loose control while on the freeway luckily no other vehicles were near my vehicle at the time. Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 ram 1500 trucks manufactured from february 27, 2008, through june 30, 2009, and from december 1, 2009, through october 20, 2011. This vehicle was built in that time frame on july 2, 2008 as a 2008 model but i was informed by the dealership after they contacted it does not fall under the recall and gave me a quote for $6000 to fix.
