Yesterday, Chrysler Group LLC and Dodge announced the recall of around 280,000 Ram pickup trucks. The recalled vehicles were manufactured and sold between 2003 and 2011.
According to the car manufacturer, the left, front steering assemblies on 1500, 2500, and 3500 model Ram pickup trucks are defective. The tie rod ball stud in the assemblies were found to have a tendency to break easily when performing “high-stress maneuvers.”
If this part of the vehicle breaks, the left front wheel will lose some directional stability and increase the chance of an accident.
Chrysler has received reports of multiple accidents caused by the defect and at least 1 injury.
