As part of the growing National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation into faulty Takata airbag inflators that could rupture when they deploy and potentially send shrapnel into occupants, several Dodge Ram pickups have been added to the expanding list of vehicles "recommended" for possible defect inspection.

According to KickingTires.com, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' "field action" involves the driver's-side airbag inflators on 2004-2007 Dodge Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups as well as the same model-year Ram 3500 Chassis Cabs. Also included in this field action are 2004-2007 Dodge Ram Dakotas and their sibling Mitsubishi Raider pickups.

No fatalities or injuries have been connected to these vehicles, but owners will be contacted via mail with more information.

Is there any gasket, nut, wire or bolt from those old Dakotas (2004-2007) that didn't crap out or get recalled?

Takata hasn't found the root cause so what's different with the replacement airbags? Why only 10 year old trucks? Will the newer trucks be recalled next year? Is ammonium nitrate a safe chemical? If so why doesn't the other airbag companies use it?

Why recall them trucks? 90% of them are rusted out or broke in a junk yard on the way to China.

What happens when Dodge, Honda and Toyota gets cheap using cheaper air bags?
They compromise safety!
If I owned one of those effected vehicles I would be mad as hell!
Whats the use of adding a safety device when it makes the vehicle MORE unsafe?
It's not a good feeling driving down the road not knowing if your air bag goes off you'll be stabbed with metal shrapnel.

I am not cutting down or attacking Ram Truck Owners, I am on your side and I will stand up, fight for and defend you!

2004-2007 Dodge Ram Dakota?? I think you mean Dodge Dakota. The Ram branding didn't happen until 2010.

Lets be fair!
The 2006 Honda Ridgeline that's also a pickup is also included in this air bag recall problem.

PUTC ? please don't act like Consumer Reports and suck up to Honda and purposely leave out the bad news about Honda

Consumer Reports: OMG Honda is soooo wonderful lets all bow down and worship them!

told ya! I read every story and carefully watch what the story leaves out and doesn't tell us,, when you pick and choose to try to fool us it effects your creditability !

The Toyota Tundra was also recalled for these airbags a couple months back.


I've never seen one of these airbag even go off. Accidents happen all the time in my area and still have yet to see one actually deploy. Does it take a head on collision with a train to get one to work?

Today is Jan.7, 2015 and this is the first time I have seen a listing for my 2004 Dodge 3500. Why is it so difficult to track which vehicles need the recall? I have had NO communications from the dealers or anyone else about this airbag recall. Also, I am going to disable my airbags as soon as I can find the right wire to cut. This whole scenario is UNACCEPTABLE. Thank you for posting the info I have been looking for. Now I need to find the updated info for my wife and my son's cars....
