JULY 21, 2015 I HAD HEARD A LOUD HIGH PITCH NOISE ORIGINATING FROM THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE. AT HIGHER SPEEDS IT STOPPED, BUT THEN I WAS HEARING A SOUND OF METAL CLANKING TOGETHER. I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT TO WORK. I TOOK A LOOK UNDER THE VEHICLE AND NOTHING WAS VISIBLY WRONG. THAT EVENING I WAS DRIVING HOME, AND THE VEHICLE LURCHED AT APPROXIMATELY 40 MPH; I PULLED INTO THE CENTER LANE OF TRAFFIC, PUT THE VEHICLE IN PARK, THEN BACK TO DRIVE AND PROCEEDED TO DRIVE FORWARD. WITHIN A HALF OF A MILE AS I WAS DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 40 MPH, THE REAR AXLE LOCKED UP AND I SKIDDED TO A SCREECHING HALT. LUCKILY NO ONE WAS BEHIND ME AND I AVOIDED AN ACCIDENT. I WAS UNABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE TO MOVE, SO I BLOCKED A LANE OF TRAFFIC UNTIL THE TOW TRUCK SHOWED UP. THE REPAIR SHOP I HAD THE VEHICLE REPAIRED AT SAID THAT AN EAR ON THE PARKING BRAKE ASSEMBLY HAD BROKEN LOOSE AND THAT THE ASSEMBLY ACTUALLY SHATTERED. THEY SAID THEY HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS IN ALL THE YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN REPAIRING CARS. THEY HAD TO GET PARTS FROM A LOCAL DODGE DEALERSHIP FOR THE REPAIR, AND WHILE THEY WERE TALKING TO THE PARTS MANAGER AT THE DEALERSHIP ABOUT MY TRUCK THE MANAGER STATED "THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM; WE SEE IT ALL THE TIME". I BELIEVE THAT THIS SOUNDS LIKE A SAFETY RECALL THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY IF IT WERE TO HAPPEN WHILE TRAVELING AT A HIGH SPEED ON A FREEWAY WITH MORE TRAFFIC AROUND.
