Chrysler Out with Another Recall
Chrysler officials announced today that the company is recalling nearly 400,000 pickup trucks in the latest round of safety concerns.
The Detroit News is reporting that the automaker's recall covers Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups and 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs from the 2010-2014 model years. Most of the recalls affect vehicles in the United States.
The callback was prompted by the finding of two vehicles that had defective electrical parts that could spark fires or fuel leaks.
The article said dealers will upgrade wiring harness terminals and replace as needed fuel heater housings in trucks with 6.7 liter Cummins diesel engines.
This is just the latest trouble for Ram trucks. Earlier this week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration questioned the pace at which repairs were being made from a previous recall. That callback involved concerns that problems with tie rods could cause a loss of steering.
