Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum, Charger Recalled

Rear axle could 'disengage'

Chrysler is recalling 5,509 2008 Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum and Charger sedans because of a manufacturing defect that could cause the half-shaft in the rear wheel drive vehicles to "disengage from the wheel-hub," according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

In a brief statement on its Web site, NHTSA advised that the defect could "cause the vehicle to lose power and result in a crash without warning.".

Chrysler dealers will replace the rear axle hub-nuts when the recall begins later this month.

Consumers can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
