The rear lower subframe mount plate nut can experience stress corrosion cracking if subjected to long term exposure to road salts. This can result in fracture and loss of the structural integrity of the subframe mount attachment. Detachment of the body mounts at the rear corners of the subframe, which supports the engine and transmission, allows the rear corners of the subframe to drop.

    Consequence: If both rear corners drop, steering would become suddenly very difficult, affecting vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will install subframe rear mount bolts, reinforcement plates, and plate nuts. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #98V323000 »
