A great improvement over my last Dodge truck. Fuel Economy has improved significantly. The Auto 4X4 works well in all conditions. The room inside and comfort has improved some and the vehicle is much quieter then my old 2004. Great truck!

Issue: On certain trucks with adjustable pedals, the accelerator pedal could get stuck on the all-weather floor mat. If this happens, the truck may not slow down when the driver releases the accelerator pedal. Note: If the driver continues to brake, the brake-throttle override system will close the throttle opening and allow the driver to stop the truck. Safety Risk: A stuck accelerator pedal could lead to unintended acceleration of the truck and increase the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your truck to a dealer to modify the all-weather floor mat. This will reduce the chance of contact with the accelerator pedal. You should remove the driver’s all-weather floor mat until this recall is completed.

On certain Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300 all-wheel drive vehicles and RAM 1500 four wheel drive vehicles equipped with 8 speed automatic transmissions, the transmission output shaft could fail. If this were to occur while the vehicle is being driven, it could result in a loss of motive power. If this were to occur while the vehicle is parked without the parking brake applied, it could result in unintended vehicle movement. Both situations could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will replace the transmission in affected vehicles.

On certain vehicles, the coolant bypass valve may stick in a position that does not allow coolant flow to the heater core. Loss of windshield defrosting and defogging functions may, under certain driving conditions, compromise the driver’s ability to see the road and its users, which could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the coolant bypass valve, and reprogram the powertrain control module with updated software.

On certain vehicles, the parking brake equalizer may have been adjusted incorrectly during vehicle assembly. This could result in reduced effectiveness of the parking brake system. Should the vehicle be parked on a sufficient slope, this could allow unintended vehicle movement, which could cause a crash resulting in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, re-adjust the parking brake equalizer.

On certain vehicles, the rear axle pinion nut could loosen and allow the rear driveshaft to detach from the axle, or fully detach from the vehicle. Pinion nut separation could also cause the rear axle differential to fail suddenly, causing rear wheel lockup. These issues could result in loss of propulsion, danger to other road users, loss of vehicle control and possible crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will install a pinion nut retainer.

Certain pickup trucks may not comply with Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 - Lighting System and Retroreflective Devices. Due to an error in the configuration of the vehicle, the Daytime Running Light (DRL) system was not enabled. No DRL illumination could render the vehicle less visible to other motorists and pedestrians during daylight hours, which could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will update the DRL configuration on affected vehicles.

On certain 2008-2011 Ram 2500 and 3500 4x4, Ram 3500 cab chassis 4x2 and 4x4, and 2008 Ram 1500 Mega Cab 4x4 vehicles, the left outer tie rod ball stud could fracture. Additionally, other 2003-2008 Ram vehicles may have received the affected tie rod as a replacement part during service, and are therefore also involved in this campaign. Although this condition tends to occur when making a tight turn during low speed parking lot type maneuvers, tie rod failure could result in a loss of directional stability. A loss of steering control could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the left outer tie rod end and tighten the track bar bolt. Note: The tie rod replacement portion of this recall was superseded by recall 2013-396.

On certain vehicles, the specified nominal volume of 2.1L (71 oz) of lube oil in the rear axle may not prove sufficient. As such the vehicle could experience a noise (growl, grind) from the rear axle bearing, which could eventually seize. This could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will install a rear axle pinion bearing fluid drain-back flow restrictor and a new axle cover with a revised fluid fill level access hole.

On certain vehicles, the certification label and/or supplemental tire pressure information labels may have been printed with incorrect information. The certification labels may include an over-stated and an under-stated front/rear axle capacities. The supplemental tire pressure labels incorrectly states a rear seating capacity of zero (0) when it should read three (3). Incorrect information on the certification label could lead to the vehicle being loaded improperly, which could increase the risk of a crash. Correction: New labels will be provided to the owners of vehicle affected by this recall. They can install it themselves or have a dealer do for them.
