Ram has recalled around 160,000 pickup trucks due to a problem with a circuit fastener.
According to CNET, a fastener that is part of the car’s battery might not be completely secured. This could disable the vehicle’s power steering and create a higher accident risk. Fiat Chrysler, Ram’s parent company, states that it is unaware of any related accidents or injuries.
Owners will be notified by mail shortly, and dealership technicians will be required to fix the problem.
The recall applies to the 2019 Ram 1500 light-duty pickup truck, which comes in a variety of colors.
The recalled trucks were all built before October 25, 2018.
Drivers have enough to worry about while traversing the roadways on a daily basis. When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, there is a reasonable expectation that the car is going to perform in a matter that would not put the operator’s life in jeopardy. Unfortunately there are hundreds of vehicle recalls each year due to manufacturer defects, from the tires to the ignition switches, that can cause catastrophic injuries and in some cases death.
