 Description of the problemOn 1/18/16 at 1330 hrs, while driving to work i heard a faint whistle upon deceleration. When i was driving home at 0030 hrs, the faint whistle grew louder and louder. All of a sudden, there was a loud bang and the rear of my truck locked up. I was only traveling 35mph and lucky enough to maintain minimal control enough to pull off mostly on the shoulder of the road. The local pd called for their duty tow to tow my vehicle as the drive-shaft was sitting on the road hanging from the transmission. Called the dealership after speaking with chrysler, who took my the info on my situation, and they stated that they could not "get my vehicle in for 2days at least." after explaining again to the local chrysler dealership that the driveshaft was on the ground between the rear tires- which are locked up, he stated "so you don't think you can drive the vehicle in-will it have to be towed?" luckly, i was traveling on a straight stretch of road and only going 35mph!!! Had this happened on another part of the road and the outcome would have been my children visiting in the hospital - or worse!
