Recall Alert: 1,058 Ram 4500-5500 HD

Ram 5500 Dump II

By Matt Schmitz

Chrysler is officially recalling 47,019 Ram pickup trucks in two separate actions for problems with both light- and heavy-duty vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The first we've already reported on early last week, which includes Ram 1500s built between June 26, 2012, and Feb. 5, 2013, specifically related to four-wheel-drive models that could see issues with the electronic stability control. 

The second recall is for 1,058 model-year 2013 Ram 4500 and 5500 pickup trucks that may have an incorrect bolt attaching the track bar to the frame. Affected vehicles were manufactured from Jan. 22 through March 8, 2013. The incorrect attaching bolt may break or fall out, resulting in the truck suddenly pulling to one side and increasing the risk of a crash.

Chrysler will begin notifying owners in August, and dealers will correct the trucks' respective problems for free. Owners can call the automaker at 800-247-9753 or the NHTSA's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.

@Zach - I wouldn't know. I don't own a Ram and I don't intend on popping fuses on my F150.

No worries Lou, your POS furd will pop those fuses for you!

WHY DONT THEY LIST ALL THE RECALLS NOT JUST SELECTIVE ONES ?

GM HAS HAD RECALLS

TOYOTA KING OF RECALLS

RENAULT/NISSAN HAS HAD RECALLS

Toyota is no longer the king of recalls.
