The North American based automotive giant Chrysler Group LLC has recently announced a recall for some of its Ram 1500 pickup trucks because of a problem with the stability control system.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 45,961 units of the 2013 Ram 1500 pickup trucks will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the stability control fixed. If ignored, the issue will increase the risk of a crash as the stability control system is helping the vehicles maintain the right direction and stay upright, even if the driver loses control.
The investigation began after Chrysler has received some warranty complaints from owners of the pickup trucks but it seems that no accidents or injuries have been recorded, related to the problem. The affected vehicles have been produced between the 26th of June, 2012, and the 5th of February, 2013. Owners of the pickup trucks will be notified by Chrysler next month and the inspection / fix will be at no cost. If you own such a vehicle, you’re better off contacting Chrysler for further details.
