Recall Alert: 2015 Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs

Statement: Upper Control Arm

August 20, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is conducting a voluntary safety recall to inspect and replace, as required, certain control arms on an estimated 199 U.S.-market trucks.

Routine testing by FCA US discovered front upper control arms on two vehicles had welds with insufficient fusion. If a weld were compromised, it may reduce suspension stability and affect vehicle control. However, the Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or complaints.

The control arms were traced to a single lot used in vehicle production from Jan. 30, 2015, through Feb. 6. Certain model-year 2015 Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs assembled during this period are subject to this recall.

The condition, which may be preceded by front-end vibration and/or abnormal front-tire wear, may not be present in every vehicle subject to the campaign. However, FCA US will, at no charge to customers, inspect every affected vehicle and perform service, as required.

Beginning next month, customers will be advised when they may schedule service. FCA US urges all customers to read their notices and respond accordingly.

An additional 32 vehicles will be recalled in Canada.

Customers with questions or concerns may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.
