The Details

Vehicles recalled:

• 2014-2017 Ram 2500 pickups
• 2013-2017 Ram 3500 pickups
• 2013-2017 Ram chassis cab trucks

The problem: The part that connects the truck’s steering with its front wheels—called a steering linkage—could separate over time. As a result, drivers may lose the ability to steer the truck.

The fix: Dealers will replace or repair any faulty parts at no charge to owners.

How to contact the manufacturer: FCA says it will notify owners of affected trucks before April 2019. Owners can contact FCA at 800-853-1403.

NHTSA campaign number: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has yet to issue a recall number for this campaign.
