Among the 41 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Dana, Inc., (“Dana”) has recalled an estimated 25,300 model year Spicer D-Series and E-Series Steer Axles. The castellated nut on the Steer Axles may not be properly torqued, allowing the tie rod to loosen.

According to the NHTSA, if the tie rod loosens, it may disconnect from the steering knuckle, causing a complete loss of steering and increasing the risk of a crash. Before a tie rod can disconnect from the vehicle, a driver should experience significant warning, including noise and loosened steering.
