The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched an investigation into newer Ram and Dodge Durangos for possible rollaway incidents. The investigation was launched after several owner complaints of their vehicle rolling away after parked.
Specifically the investigation is looking into 2013-16 Ram trucks and 2014-16 Dodge Durango SUVs. According to NHTSA, they have received information regarding 25 crashes associated with these vehicles rolling away while parked. FCA has stated the company is cooperating with the investigation.
Earlier this year FCA recalled 1.1 million vehicles globally for a similar problem associated with an electronic rotary dial gear selector. It is important to note that both of the vehicles in this investigation also offer a similar gear selector, but it is a different gear selector than the previously recalled one.
In the previous recall, Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300 and Jeep Grand Cherokee were recalled after reports of 68 injuries, 266 crashes and 308 property damage reports were discovered to be tied to the issue.
