Vehicles Affected: Approximately 33,000 model-year 2013-18 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks equipped with Mopar steering linkages that were due for replacement in a previous recall in 2019

The Problem: The outboard steering linkage jam nut may loosen, allowing one end of the drag links to separate, potentially causing a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will check the steering linkage and replace the drag link assembly or weld the nut to the adjuster sleeve for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ram parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Aug. 14. 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.
