Dodge is issuing three separate recall exercises over various issues, with the affected models being the Journey crossover and the Ram trucks

05 Jan 2011 | International News : U.S.A

The first, and the largest, recall exercise involves the 65,180 Journey crossovers built from November 1, 2007 to September 7, 2008. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration [NHTSA], the wires within the front door wire harnesses may fatigue and break. This might affect the side-impact sensors which will cause the side airbags to not activate. Chrysler will replace the wiring on the left and right doors free of charge.

The second recall involves 22,274 Dodge Ram 4500 and 5500 trucks built from 2008 to 2010, and concerns a steering problem. The NHTSA says that these vehicles may experience a weakening and fracture of the left ball stud on the tie rod resulting in the potential loss of steering. Chrysler will fix the issue by replacing the left outer tie rod free of charge.

Finally, the third recall affects 56,611 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks built from September 2009 to December 2010, with problems regarding the rear axle. "Some vehicles may experience a noise (growl, grind) coming from the rear axle bearing which could eventually seize," said the NHTSA.
