"The affected vehicles may have inadequate welds securing the front track-bar frame brackets, possibly resulting in the bracket components separating from the frame," said the NHTSA in its recall summary. "If the bracket components separate from the frame, the vehicle may have a reduced response to steering input, increasing the risk of a crash."
No accidents or injuries are linked to the recall, the automaker told federal safety regulators.
Ram dealers will weld on a new track-bar frame bracket or replace the frame of the vehicle. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact Fiat Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should stay in touch with their Ram dealer on next steps or wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment.
