Recall roundup: Ram 1500 for gearbox problems

The North American based automaker Chrysler Group has recently announced a recall for some units of the Ram 1500 because of problems with their transmissions.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of just 159 units of the Ram 1500 will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the transmission flaw fixed. The NHTSA says the car company has been advised by an undisclosed transmission supplier that a small shipment of the gearboxes may prevent some of the trucks from shifting into “Park” mode.

The affected Ram 1500 vehicles have been created over the course of 12 days in late January 2014 and early February 2014. The Chrysler Group is not aware of any accidents and / or injuries related to this problem. The company’s dealers will be inspecting the 159 vehicles to determine if the flaw is present and if it turns out to be, the transmissions will be replaced free of charge. From the 159 units of the Ram 1500, 125 have been sold in the United States, 32 in Canada and the rest of them in Europe. For more details on the subject you should contact your local Ram dealership.
