Ram has officially announced a recall for the ProMaster full-size vans, because of a problem with the braking system.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 6,800 units of the Ram ProMaster 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 braking system fixed. The NHTSA says that a brake hose has been damaged during assembly, but the tool used in the process is no longer used.
“Chrysler Group LLC will conduct a safety recall to inspect approximately 6,800 full-size vans and, if necessary, replace a brake hose. A routine post-production test on one van discovered damage that could degrade brake performance. Damage was linked to the use of a specific wrench during assembly; it is no longer used”, as the company is saying in its official press release.
The Chrysler Group is now aware of any accidents, injuries or even complaints related to this problem which currently affects approximately half of the vehicles. The carmaker is expecting less than two percent of these to actually require a repair but if the damaged is observed, the brake hose will be replaced. Customers of the Ram ProMaster can contact the car manufacturer at 1-800-853-1403 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 in order to find out more about this recall.
