2013-2017 Ram 2500, 3500: Recall Alert

2017 Ram 2500

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 574,000 model-year 2014-17 Ram 2500 pickup trucks and 3500 chassis cabs, and model-year 2013-17 Ram 3500 pickups

The Problem: A specific steering-linkage configuration on certain trucks may separate over time, which could lead to the driver experiencing steering loss, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ram parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said it is aware of one potentially related injury and eight potentially related accidents.

The Fix: A remedy is still being developed for this issue.

What Owners Should Do: FCA did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker 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.

It would appear that RAM is in a tight race to overtake Silverado for #2 in sales and to overtake Ford for #1 for recalls.

Unreal! Why I don't buy their trucks

DATED STYLING.

LOOSE STEERING.

BEND OVER,

RAM !!

Shame they didn't catch it earlier.

Hopefully they figure out how to fix it fast and right the first time.

This doesn't appear to be a fast or easily solved issue at this point.

This is simple stuff in terms of manufacturing and they cant even get the steering right really!?!?! Maybe they need better engineers!

The Fix: A remedy is still being developed for this issue.
Dump the truck and get a GMC/Chevy

talking about yourself again

never anything positive

just putting others down

Would you look at that...two of the resident GM Shills ( GMSaren’tGREAT and TNTCLOWN ) insert Ford into an article that is of zero relation to Ford, the company that sells the most trucks.

Unfortunately it is not an easy fix, and involves frame to mount reinforcement. Going to be costly for Fiat. It seems Ram cannot get the steering right after many years issues.

Too bad for Chevy that UGLY isn't a recall. As it is, the 2019 Silverado 1500 and 2020 Silverado HD are screwed.

Why Chevy's don't get recalled.

https://www.wcpo.com/money/consumer/dont-waste-your-money/why-gm-won-t-recall-thousands-of-takata-air-bags

"That's because Helton's Chevy is one of 3 million GM full size SUVs and pickups on the recall list for possibly dangerous Takata airbags. They include 2007-2011 models of the:

Chevy Silverado
Chevy Tahoe
Chevy Suburban
GMC Yukon
GMC Sierra
Cadillac Escalade"

""In each of the three years, I have received a recall notice for airbags that could violently explode and send shrapnel into drivers or passengers," .............but, wait.....

"Helton started wondering if perhaps GM doesn't really want to recall these airbags, because of the tens of millions of dollars it would cost the company." "GM confirms that it believes the airbags in its full size SUVs are not a risk." "But The Center for Auto Safety is asking the NHTSA to deny GM any waiver of the recall. "Our position is that GM has not come anywhere close to demonstrating that their airbag inflators are so distinctly different from the others millions that have been recalled, that are going off and tragically killing people,"

So when papaweirdo and TNTGAY stop posting on here, we'll know they ate some shrapnel from there 1998 Chevy trucks.

^^^^^^^^^^^^...this person has serious issues.
