 Description of the problemI called my dealer about a recent recall notice i received in the mail. They informed me that they would be welding the threads on my center drag link. This prevents the steering wheeel from ever being adjusted after an alignment. This now creates another safety issue with a steering wheel that will be way off center. So much for the 1- & 2 positions. This so called fix is is a disgrace! It calls for welding an adjustable part of the steering linkage rendering it non- adjustable when having the front end aligned in the future. Not to mention the effect of welding, potentially causing a problem with the integrity of the metal. The correct fix for this safety issue is to replace this steering linkage component, the entire drag link! Not do a "back yard, shade tree mechanic" weld job on the steering linkage of all things! I am appalled that nhtsa approved such a thing. Please revisit this issue and do the right thing. Require chrysler (fca us llc) to replace this defective part with the proper part. Note.... Chrysler is not welding the nuts on the drag links on trucks coming off the assembly line! They are coming off with proper, safe, adjustable drag links! I will die in this truck before i let fca weld anything on my steering linkage. Just so you know.

  • What is Recall?

    A recall is when a product is removed from the market or a correction is made to the product because it is either defective or potentially harmful.
  • What is Failure?

    Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Product failure ranges from failure to sell the product to fracture of the product, in the worst cases leading to personal injury, the province of forensic engineering.
