Vehicles Affected: Approximately 10,100 model-year 2018-19 Ram 1500 pickup trucks

The Problem: The rear driveshaft may have an incomplete weld fusion between the tube and tube yoke, which may lead to weld cracking or the driveshaft fracturing. A fractured rear driveshaft could detach from the truck and become a road hazard, or it could result in a loss of drive power, both of which increase the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the rear driveshaft for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ram manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners June 15. Owners can call FCA 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.
