During assembly of the affected vehicles, it is possible that one or two of the four bolts that attach the propeller shaft to the automatic transmission transfer assembly were not properly tightened. An incorrectly torqued bolt could loosen over time, possibly causing the propeller shaft to detach. If the propeller shaft detaches while driving it could cause excessive noise and possibly damage the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
