  • Hundreds of 2016 Ram Trucks being recalled due to accident prone issues

2016 Ram 3500 Trucks are being recalled in a large number.

Ram has recalled various trucks from many models which were introduced in the year 2016. The models that have been recalled include 3500, 930, 5500 and 4500. The vehicles that are being recalled were built between 24th July, 2015 and 7th January, 2016. Most of these trucks are still at the dealers and not sold yet. So recalling them won’t be a big problem for company.

According to the NHTSA, several complaints were lodged against Ram trucks. All the complaints were related to loss of power in vehicle. It was found that the problem occurred due to a manufacturing faulty.

The transfer case of the truck might have been manufactured with a faulty material. This can result in the fracture of shaft and losing power over the vehicle. This can also result in the inability to park the pickup truck too.

No injuries or deaths have been reported yet by FCA or NHTSA. The dealerships will look into the respective models and will fix the issue if found one. They will replace the faulty and effected parts in trucks.

According to the company, the fault has occurred only in four-wheel drive trucks. Most of these trucks are not being sold yet. The others which are being sold can contact their dealers in a few days.

The company has made an announcement about the problem on 10th August. The official mail will be sent to the clients soon to make the recall effective.
