According to the ACCC recall report, the “drag link jam nut may loosen and may result in the drag link separating from the adjuster sleeve”.
“If the drag link separates from the adjuster sleeve, the steering may become difficult to operate or potentially fail, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users,” the recall report says.
The affected vehicles were supplied nationally by American Special Vehicles and sold via authorised RAM dealers between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2018.
