Haeggquist & Eck, LLP Is Investigating Claims on Behalf of Owners of Certain Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 Trucks Regarding a Safety Recall of the Drag Link Assembly

San Diego: Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, a leading consumer rights litigation firm, is investigating claims against Chrysler (also known as “Fiat Chrysler Automobiles” or “Chrysler”) regarding a recall of the drag link assembly in approximately 796,000 2013-2018 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 heavy duty pickup trucks. If you own a 2500 Ram Truck (model year 2014-2018) or 3500 Ram Truck (model year 2013-2018) you are encouraged to contact Amber Eck at Haeggquist & Eck for additional information.

In January 2019, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (the “NHTSA”) issued Recall No. 19V-021 and Defendant Chrysler issued Manufacturer Recall No. V06 that applies to approximately 795,575 Ram trucks and required repair or replacement of drag link assemblies.
Chrysler explained in its Safety Recall Advanced Communication notice, issued February 1, 2019, that the recall stems from safety issues relating to the drag link assembly on the vehicles – basically the nuts (often called jam nuts) on the drag link assembly. They can become loose and separate, resulting in a “loss of directional steering control, which can cause a vehicle [to] crash without prior warning.”
Although Chrysler stated in the Recall notice that it would “repair or replace” the defective drag link assembly, in fact, its “repair” was to weld components of the drag link on the assembly, making it impossible for certain repair or service work (such as alignments) to be done on the vehicles without cutting the welds and then re-welding them.
