Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is not knew to recalling vehicles for potentially rolling away. This time the company is recalling 1.8 million Ram trucks as they may get away from you when they’re in park.
This rollaway Ram recall cannot be confused with previous ones. The truck was recalled in the past due to the company’s electronic rotary dial gear selector in high-end Ram models. This new recall impacts all Ram trucks with traditional column-mount shifters from 2009-2017 model year.
FCA says the brake transmission shift interlock mechanism may not hold up well when exposed to prolonged high temperatures. Over time it could cause the vehicle to roll away when in park. The condition has reportedly led to a few injuries and accidents.
In total, 1.5 million of the impacted Rams are found in the United States, 250,000 are in Canada and 50,000 are in other global markets.
