Recall Alert: RAM 2013/2014 Heavy-Duty

Statement: Bracket Welds

September 10, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 156,498 heavy-duty trucks in the U.S. to inspect and repair, as required, bracket welds that may lead to diminished steering response.

An investigation by FCA US discovered certain supplied steering components may have welds with insufficient fusion. This may lead to separation, which may affect steering; capability remains, but with diminished response.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries. FCA US is aware of a single minor accident related to the condition.

Affected are certain 2013 Ram 3500 pickups, 2014 Ram 2500/3500 pickups and 3500 Chassis Cabs. Additional vehicles, estimated to number 20,603 in Canada and 13,236 in Mexico, are also subject to recall. The Mexico population includes certain 2014 Ram 1500 pickups exclusive to that market.

An estimated 3,241 vehicles outside the NAFTA region also are affected.

Affected customers will be advised next month to contact their dealers and schedule an inspection. If warranted, the brackets will be repaired.

A second mailing will then advise customers to have their dealers install a reinforcement bracket, provided their vehicles were not repaired in the campaign’s first phase. All service will be performed at no cost.

Customers with additional questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
