Pros

Model Highlights

The Chrysler Aspen is available with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

A 303-hp 4.7L V8 is standard, and a 376-hp 5.7L Hemi V8 is optional. New to the line-up is a 399-hp 5.7L Hemi Hybrid, which gets 40 of those horses from a 300-volt battery. The hybrid engine comes mated to a continuously variable transmission.

The 4.7L can run on blends of ethanol and gasoline up to 85% ethanol (E85), and the 5.7L benefits from the Multi-Displacement System, which turns off four of the cylinders to save fuel when less power is required.

Aspens equipped with the 4.7L engine and AWD get a single-speed transfer case system, while Hemi AWD models get a low range good for creeping up steep off-road inclines or boat ramps, or getting through sand. Both systems have a 2WD mode, and they revert to a 48/52% split front/back in AWD mode.

The Aspen's truck-based underpinnings are closely related to those of the Dodge Durango. It rides on a stiff hydroformed frame, has an independent front suspension and solid rear axle with coil springs as well as a Watts linkage setup, which improves roadholding.

Inside, the Aspen is comfort-oriented. Standard features include wood accents, air conditioning, a garage door opener, front and rear LED lamps, a CD sound system and a rear power outlet. Eight can be seated comfortably with the standard layout, which includes a second-row bench seat and a 60/40-split folding third-row seat, but there's also an optional seven-passenger layout with second-row bucket seats.

Standard safety equipment includes electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, front side air bags and roll-sensing side-curtain air bags.

Major options on the Aspen include leather upholstery heated first- and second-row seats, full leather upholstery, a power memory driver's seat, a back-seat DVD entertainment system, power sunroof and several flashy wheel designs, including huge chrome-clad 20-inchers.


Model News

There are two significant changes in the Chrysler Aspen line-up for 2009. The first is a 41-hp gain in the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine. The second is the availability of a 399-hp two-mode Hemi Hybrid, which incorporates a detuned version of the Hemi as well as a 40-hp. 300-v battery. Chrysler claims the unit improves fuel efficiency by almost 54% in the city and nearly 40% overall. It comes as an AWD model paired with a continuously variable transmission.


Value Writeup

Chrysler's 2009 Aspen offers a unique pairing of serious truck towing ability and durability with interior comfort and luxury features that aren't usually available in this type of vehicle, such as optional heated second-row seats. Chrysler says the Aspen's towing capacity of 8,950 pounds is the best in its class, and the model also has best-in-class cargo space behind the second-row seats. Further, the new 5.7L Hemi Hybrid model is claimed by Chrysler to be the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class.

And while most truck-based SUVs have multiple trim levels with equipment from basic to posh, the Aspen only comes in one very well equipped model, with a simplified list of options to make it luxurious for a modest amount extra.

Summary
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Ram 1500 trucks manufactured from February 27, 2008, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through October 20, 2011; model year 2009-2011 Dodge Dakota trucks manufactured from February 27, 2007, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through September 30, 2011; model year 2009 Chrysler Aspen trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008; and model year 2009 Dodge Durango trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008. The rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to an undersized pinion spline that can allow relative motion between the nut and companion flange.

Consequence
If the rear axle pinion nut loosens, the axle can lock up and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or a vehicle crash with little warning.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during May 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.

This campaign is an expansion of a recall campaign 12V-474. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N08. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Consequence
These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. These inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Chrysler will notify the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM owners. Mitsubishi owners will be notified by their company. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Chrysler mailed interim notices to owners on July 7, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S43.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
