Autobytel's Recall Report: Dodge Trucks
The end of June and the beginning of July have seen a number of new safety recall campaigns initiated by a fairly long list of automakers. Dodge has garnered the most attention during this period due to the company’s recall of nearly a quarter million Dodge Ram trucks. 242,780 of the full-size pickups built between 2003 and 2011 have been found to suffer from a defective tie rod ball stud on the left side of the vehicle, which can actually come apart at low speeds. Most of the trucks affects are Heavy Duty models (Ram 2500 and 3500), although 2008 Dodge 1500:ram-1500|@@ pickups are also included in the recall.
