Recall issued for Ram 2500 and 3500

Ram 2500 and 3500 steering fault recall issued news

A total of 1197 RAM pick-ups caught up in recall.

A TOTAL of 1197 converted RAM 2500 and 3500 pick-ups have been issued with a recall notice due to an issue with the vehicles’ steering system.

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.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted via mail, advising them to contact their closest RAM dealer to organise free reparation.
