Chrysler Recalls Trucks and SUVs

January 17, 2011  ·  By HM&M


Chrysler recently recalled “nearly 150,000 trucks and SUVs to address several problems, including steering, air bag issues and the potential for trucks to stall.” (Washington AP, 12/30).

In order to address these issues, “Chrysler is conducting three separate recalls to fix the problems. The first one covers about 22,000 Dodge Ram trucks from the 2008-2011 model years to address steering problems. The second involves about 65,000 2009 model year Dodge Journey SUVs to fix side air bags that might not deploy. The last includes about 57,000 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks from the 2011 model year to fix components in rear axles that could cause the trucks to stall.”

Chrysler has also set up a hot line where owners with questions can call – (800) 853-1403. As always, the National Highway Safety Administration website is a reliable source of recall information.

As a Chicago personal injury attorney, I encourage all consumers to stay up to date on recalled vehicles and have their vehicles fixed quickly to avoid preventable injuries.
