Chrysler Recalls More Than 242,000 Dodge Ram Pick-Up Trucks

July 14, 2011 By: LemonLaw Category: dodge ram, Recall

Chrysler will recall nearly a quarter of a million Dodge Ram pick-up trucks due to a poor tie rod assembly issue in the front steering system. The Dodge Ram recall according to Dodge representatives is the defective assembly may cause the part to fracture, and often occurs while maneuvering at low speeds, such as driving in parking lots. If the rod does fracture, drivers may notice a loss in directional stability, increasing the risk of an accident or crash.

Affected models include:

2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab 4×4 built between Feb. 14, 2008, through Aug. 15, 2008

2008-2011 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4×4 built between Feb. 14, 2008, through Aug. 15, 2008

2008-2011 Dodge Ram 3500 Cab Chassis 4×2 built between Feb. 14, 2008, through Aug. 15, 2008

2003-2008 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 may have received part during routine service

Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and replace the left tie rod as needed for free. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 800-327-4236.  If your Dodge trucks continues to exhibit this problem after three or more attempts to fix this problem, contact us and we will be glad to discuss the situation and see if/how we can help.

    There is more then just the tie rod issue: The camshaft is also a huge problem. You can look at all of the chat areas and find that there is a problem with the 2011 Dodge Ram truck. We have went to our mechanic and had one problem after another fixed until they came to the real problem. We have 91000 miles on a truck owe over $21,000 and paid $40,000 for a truck sitting in our driveway that we can’t use.
