Dodge Recalls 256,956 RAM 1500 Trucks, Dec. 21, 2014

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—December 21, 2014

SUMMARY: Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks manufactured January 28, 2004, to August 3, 2005. In the affected vehicles, the rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to an undersized spline on the pinion gear.

CONSEQUENCE: If the pinion nut loosens, the rear axle may seize, and/or the driveshaft may detach resulting in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a retention feature to the pinion nut, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 13, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is P77.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
