Chrysler recalled over 4,000 vehicles that used the ZF transmission, as it was prone to fracture, according to Autoblog. The recall began in January 2014, and is still in effect. Owners that receive a letter indicating their vehicle has been recalled must bring their cars in to have them inspected.
The vehicles that were affected by the recall are the AWD 300, Charger and Ram 1500. When the output shaft of the transmission in these vehicles was put under stress, it would sometimes fracture. This imposed an extreme liability on the owners of these vehicles, making them more prone to crash. As with all recalls, any repairs that are required to fix the problem are covered by Chrysler.
