2009-2012 Ram 1500: Recall Alert

2012 Ram 1500

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 270,200 model-year 2009-12 Ram 1500 pickup trucks that are, or have been, registered in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin and West Virginia

The Problem: A fuel-tank bracket may corrode and cause the fuel tank to sag, which could cause a fuel leak or fire, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

Ram automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said its testing indicates the remaining structural components would help prevent separation, adding that it is unaware of any related accifdents or injuries.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel-tank bracket for free.

What Owners Should Do: FCA did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the manufacturer at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

With the amount of crap they put onto the roads now-a-days, I can see why some become rusted. That garbage is so bad for vehicles.

Good to see Ram taking care of it.



It's too bad than only us that read PUTC know about that.
Many of those Ram's are older 2nd or 3 owner vehicles and Ram has no idea who owns it
All of the older Ram Owners have seen the light and traded it in on a F-150, they don't own a Ram that old anymore.
You know Honest John at Johns Used Cars isn't going to tell the customer about the older Ram he has for sale on his lot that's under a recall. That will scare any sucker,,,, I mean Customer! away.

Manufactures can always track down the registered owners.

Well that's a bad design bummer.
