Chrysler announced this week that it will be conducting a recall on select 2012 Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cab pickup trucks that have been equipped with heavy-duty automatic transmissions. Only 91 vehicles have been affected by the recall for a possible condition that could cause power loss to the truck.
During production of the affected trucks, the transmissions that were placed in the vehicles did not conform to the proper design specifications, which were discovered during a consultation with a supplier. There have been no reports to the company of injuries, accidents, or complaints in regards to the vehicles in question.
Chrysler will send out notification to the owners of the 91 affected trucks at the beginning of September. Dealers will replace all affected transmissions at no charge to the owners. Customers may contact the Chrysler Group by phone at (800) 853-1403 for further information about the recall.
