Auburn Hills, MI: Chrysler has issued three separate recalls affecting as many as 1.2 million Ram pickup trucks for steering-system tie rods that may have been misaligned during assembly or steering-system service." Approximately 968,000 vehicles of the total number affected are in the US and 157,000 are in Canada.
One recall will inspect an estimated 842,400 model-year 2003-2008 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks to find approximately 116,000 repaired with tie-rod assemblies that could become misaligned. This condition could lead to component fracture and steering loss.
Two additional campaigns are being conducted to capture those vehicles known to have tie-rod assemblies linked to previous recalls. They comprise 294,000 model-year 2008-2012 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, chassis cabs and 2008 Ram 1500 4x4 Mega Cabs; plus 43,500 model-year 2008-2012 Ram 4500 and 5500 4x4 chassis cabs.
Chrysler Group is aware of six accidents and two injuries involving model-year 2008-2012 2500 and 3500 trucks and one additional accident with no injuries involving the remaining models.
If you or a loved one has suffered similar damages or injuries, please fill in our form on the right and your complaint will be sent to a lawyer who may evaluate your claim at no cost or obligation.

are there any recalls for 2014 ram 1500's bc I akrady broke my axel just by being stuck in the snow and it was barely any snow for that truck to get stuck. Also I can't get the truck to shift gears bc the shifter on the colume gets stuck and it takes about 10-15 mins with the truck running before it moves.

HI IM MARY, I PURCHASED A 2010 DODGE RAM PICKUP 1500,QUAD CAB,SRT, NICE METALIC CHOCOLATE. IT HAD 35000 MILES AND WAS FLAWLESS... I HAD THE TRUCK ABOUT 3 YRS INTO IT TURNING 117K MILES... I GOT INTO IT ONE MORNING CRANKED, PUT INTO REVERSE PULLED OUT ONTO STREET, TOOK OFF IN DRIVE... AS I WAS GOING UP STREET I FELT A DOWN SHIFT PULL, I LOOKED AT DASH AND SAW THE 4 IN THE GEAR PANAL , WAS WONDERING HOW IT SHIFTED INTO MANUAL MODE,,, LOW AND BEHOLD IT WAS STILL IN AUTOMATIC DRIVE, BUT IN 4TH... I STOPPED AND PARKED IT THEN PUT BACK IN DRIVE... IT DROVE A MINUTE THEN BACK IN 4TH GEAR...I THEN CALLED BOERNE DODGE ... THEY SAID BRING IT IN. I DID IMMEDIATLY.... THEY SAID IT COULD BE MANY THINGS BUT TO REPLACE CILONOIDS AND SENCORS FIRST... $1200.00 & ONE WEEK. LATER I PICKED IT UP AT DEALER SERVICE DEPT... IT WAS FINE FOR 3 DAYS, THEN ON 4 DAY IT WENT BACK INTO 4TH GEAR. I THEN CALLED BACK TO BOERNE DODGE IN BOERNE, TEXAS. THE SERVICE MANAGER SAID BRING IT BACK IN..... THEY THEN KEPT IT ANOTHER 5 DAYS THAT I MISSED WORK. THE SERVICE DEPT DIDNT KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON STILL.. I SAID I WOULD INVESTIGATE IT . I GOOGLED MY DODGE TRUCK STUCK IN FOURTH GEAR. IT POPPED UP AS BEING CALLED (LIMP MODE) IT IS GOING ON PER THOUSANDS OF DODGE TRUCKS AND DODGE CHARGERS, I SAW THAT IT HAPPENED TO EVEN BRAND NEW VEHICLES AND OLDER VEHICLES ALSO. ONE GUY SAID HE HAD TRUCK NEW 2 DAYS AND WAS SITTING AT LIGHT As it went into fourth gear, was under warrantee they fixed for free. Another person, a lady got into truck put in gear to drive and was in fourth gear and stayed,was over 100k miles, as she was told they didn't know what was wrong also. She did too go on line and found out about limp mode, she then got a loan and paid to have it fixed. there are tons of customers out there that have been ripped off by dodge like me. I paid in over $22,000.00 on my truck and got nothing but bad news and bad credit. I THEN CALLED BOERNE DODGE BACK AND TOLD ROBERT IN THE SERVICE DEPT ABOUT LIMP MODE. HE SAID HE NEVER HEARD OF IT. MAYBE???? HE SAID HE WOULD CHECK INTO IT, THEN SAID ITS STILL $6000.00 TO FIX. I TOLD HIM ITS NOT A TRANNY PROBLEM ITS COMPUTER , TRANNY FINE, I CAN TAKE IT OUT OF LIMP MODE BY RESETTING THE OIL, LIGHT.PUSH GAS PEDDLE 5 TIMES AND TURN KEY OFF, THEN CRANK.. IT WOULD TAKE OUT 4TH GEAR AND DRIVE FINE. WELL ABOUT 10 MINUTS INTO DRIVING IT WOULD THEN GO BACK INTO 4TH GEAR. I HAD TO GET A RIDE AGAIN... LIKE OTHER 6 TIMESTO PICK IT UP IN ANOTHER TOWN 45, MINUTES AWAY, AS I PAID FRIENDS $20.00 PER TRIP EACH DIRECTION I GOT TRUCK ,CAME HOME TO CRY AND PRAY FOR GOD TO FIX IT... WITHOUT A DOUBT ITS A COMPUTER ISSUE. I ASKED IF THEY COULD JUST REPLACE THE COMPUTER AND THEY SAID NO. THAT IT ALL HAD TO BE REPLACED, TRANNY & COMPUTER.
OF COURSE SO THEY COULD SCREW ME OUT OF $6000.00, I DID NOT HAVE. IM A SINGLE MOM OF 5 BY CHOICE. CHILD SUPPORT ON ONE KID ONLY. THE OTHER FATHER OF FOUR RAN IN HIDING FOR SUPPORT OF HISKIDS I WAS STRAPPED. NO GOV. SUPPORT DUE TO DIGNATY ISSUES I HAVE, MY DIGNATY...
I THEN TRIED TO GET SOME ONE TO TAKE OVER THE NOTE WHOM COULD FIX IT. FOR TWO MONTHS MY NEPHEW AND HIS WIFE PAID THE NOTE, TRIED TO FIX IT, BUT TO NO AVAIL. THEY WERE OUT ABOUT $2000.00 BETWEEN PAYING THE NOTE INS, AND PARTS ON FIXING IT.... I RETREIVED THE TRUCK AND ASKED MY FRIED IF HE WOULD TAKE OVER NOTE, HE TOOK TRUCK ALSO TO DODGE DEALERS AS MY NEPHEW AND I DID. SAME B.S. THEY WANT $6000.00 TO FIX IT... HE GAVE TRUCK BACK AND I CALLED ALLY FINANCIAL TO COME GET IT. I WAS EXAUSTED FROM THE TORMENT CHRYSTLER DODGE HAD PUT ME THROUGH FROM MARCH OF 2015 TO OCTOBER OF 2015... I SPENT $1200.00 ON PARTS THAT DIDNT DO ANY GOOD. IM OUT THAT MONEY I NEEDED FOR KIDS AND CHRISTMAS... I THEN SOLD MY R.V. TO HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY ANOTHER TRUCK. I NEED TRUCK TO DO MY WORK. I RECENTLY WENT MAKE A PURCHASE AND MY CREDIT IS RUINED FROM THE DODGE GOING BACK TO FINANCE CO. ALLY FINANCIAL... I HAD PRETTY GOOD CREDIT UNTIL DODGE SCREWED ME AND MY CREDIT UP. NOW ITS LOW AGAIN.. MY EX HAD DAMAGED MY CREDIT,, IT TOOK ME AND MY BANKER 10 YRS TO GET MY CREDIT UP AND IN AN INSTANT CHRYSTLER DODGE HAD SUNK IT LIKE THE TITANIC... IM PISSED. I HAVE TO HAVE MY CREDIT BACK. I WAS TOLD TO CONTACT RICHARD THORTON, HEAD OF OPPERATIONS AT CHRISTLER, WELL HE IS TO UPTOOS TO LET A NOBODY LIKE ME SPEAK TO HIM. IM SUPPOSED TO TAKE MY HARD WORKING MONEY AND GIVE IT TO HIM TO LAY BACK ON HIS YATCH AND KNOWING HE IS GETTING SUPPER RICH OFF MY PAIN AND FUSTRATIONS OF HIS TRASHY PRODUCT!!!!
THERE IS ALSO A NEIGHBOR THAT HAS A DODGE DULLY THAT WENT INTO LIMP MODE JUST AS HE PAID IT OFF... HES PISSED TOO. SINCEWERE OVER 100000 MILES WE ARE LEFT HOLDING THE FAT BILL... DODGE IS RESPONIBLE FOR THIS PROBLEM AND MY CREDIT AND THE MILLIONS OF OTHER CUSTYOMERS THAT HEVE BEEN D*CKED AROUND BY THE GREEDY HUSTLERS AT CHRYSTLER. IF I WAS ANY CLOSER TO MICHAGAN THAN TEXAS I WOULD BE UP THERE GRABBING ONE OF THOSE PR*CKS BY THE TIE MAKING HIM FIX MY TRUCK FOR SURE. OR I WOULD LET THEM KNOW IM RETURNING IT LIKE THE LADY AT DISCOUNT TIRE W A TRUCK THROUGH THE WINDOW NOT A TIRE... IM NOT A VIOLENT WOMAN AT ALL. IM THE GRAND DAUGHTER OF REBECCA MC COY AND THE NEICE OF RANDALL MCCOY. I COME FROM A FAMILY OF OUTLAWS.. IM THE REAL MC COY. AND MY SEVEN UNCLES ALWAYS TOLD ME NEVER TAKE CRAP OFF ANY MAN... JUST GRAB THEM BY THE TIE AND WRING HIS NECK, HE WILL START CAUGHING UP MY MONEY HE TOOK FROM ME ON HIS DEFAULTY PRODUCT.... THANK YOU ALL
I WAS TELLING A CAR SALES MAN ABOUT MY DODGE RECENTLY AND HE SAID IT WAS THE DIFFERENTIAL FLUID, THAT WHEN IT DROPPS BELOW A CERTAIN LEVEL IT WILL LIMP MODE...

I have a 2005 dodge that is part of recall. They said pinion nut was okay...but yet I still have to buy new rear axle. Having all the issues with my truck...but because the pinion nut didn't fall it's not covered....I mean the mechanic said the drive shaft was nearly detached...so I give they want you to crash before they take responsibility.

Death wobble at 70 mph, almost caused three different high speed accidents. The damage in the track bar setup has added additional stress on other components, causing them to fail at the same time.

Death wobble despite recall repair fulfilled.

My 2004 has that death wobble. Am afraid to drive it sometimes. I have four grandkids I take care of and want them safe.

My boss owns a 2002 Dodge 3500 Ram. It has severe “death wobble.”It is a farm truck and I have to drive it. Dodge dealer says it isn't being recalled. Do I have to be injured, or killed, or injure or kill someone else before Chrysler takes responsibility? Can you help? We don't know what to do anymore.
