Advisory details
On certain FWD vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine, the passenger side axle shaft could fail.


This could result in a loss of vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the driver’s reactions, could increase the risk of a crash.

This could also allow the vehicle to roll away if parked on a sufficient slope, despite the transmission shift lever being set in the PARK position. Both issues could result in property damage and/or personal injury.

Correction: Dealers will replace the right front axle shaft assembly.
