Chrysler recalls 126K vehicles
Chrysler is recalling 137K vehicles due to safety concerns ranging from steering failure to glitchy instrument cluster warning lights.
Here's the rundown:
- Vehicles affected: 2008-12 RAM 4500 and 5500 trucks
No. recalled: 36,710
The problem: The left tie rod assembly may break resulting in a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash.
The fix: The recall is to begin in December. The recall Number is N63.
- Vehicles affected: 2014 RAM 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks
No. recalled: 8,370
The problem: The warning lights in the instrument cluster may randomly fail to illuminate and alert the driver about vehicle problems. This could increase the risk of a crash.
The fix: The recall will begin late this month. The recall number is N59.
- Vehicles affected: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
No. recalled: 91,559
The problem: Multiple instrument cluster warning lights may randomly illuminate or fail to illuminate. There also may be a loss of anti-lock brake system and electronic stability control function, which would reduce the driver's control of the vehicle. The issues with the warning light illumination means drivers will not be warned about brake system failures or any other issues in the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
The fix: The recall is planned to begin this month. The recall campaign number is N58.
: In all cases, Chrysler will notify owners and the repairs will be made by dealers for free.
