Dodge Ram pickup trucks are highly touted by Fiat Chrysler for their style, handling, and dependability. Nonetheless, Ram 1500, Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 owners have lodged numerous complaints over defects ranging from trouble with the interior, to engine stalls, to transmission problems.

Our experienced consumer law attorneys are well versed in applicable state lemon laws and federal warranty law and can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Faulty Shifters Found in Over 180,000 Dodge Ram Pickup Trucks

In February 2018, Fiat Chrysler announced the recall of about 181,000 model year 2017-2018 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks, and 2017-2018 Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cab trucks. If the vehicle is idling in park with the brake pedal pressed for too long, the shifter could move out of position, even without the key in the ignition, causing the vehicle to move inadvertently.

The automaker advised owners to set the parking brake as the vehicle idles to prevent the shifter from moving until the needed repairs were made. The problem was attributed to overheating of the Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI). Fiat Chrysler instructed dealers to inspect and replace the BTSI as needed.

Dodge Ram Trucks Equipped with Faulty Takata Airbags

As it has been reported, parts supplier Takata manufactured defective airbags that affected more than 34 million vehicles across multiple brands, including the Dodge Ram. The propellant was exploding with enough force to cause the airbag inflators to disintegrate, sending life-threatening shards of metal into the passenger cabin.

In 2017, more than 1.25 million Ram pickup trucks were recalled worldwide due to a software glitch that can cause airbags and seatbelts to fail during rollover crashes. The recall includes 1.02 million 2013-2016 Ram 1500 and 2500 pickups and 2014-2016 Ram 355 trucks sold in the United States. To resolve the problem, dealers were instructed to reprogram the onboard sensors.

Dodge Rams with Cracked Dashboards

Cracked dashboards have been a longstanding problem affecting thousands of Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 vehicles. The dashboards were likely made of defective plastic comprised of cheaper materials that are not capable of withstanding regular use. In addition, manufacturing defects, specifically in how the dashboards are molded, have contributed to the problem. When liquified plastic is not at the right temperature during the molding process, stress cracks are likely to develop. Finally, engineering flaws may have also contributed to cracked dashboards.

While no recalls have been issued by Fiat Chrysler, and the automaker appears to have resolved the problem in current Dodge Ram models, if your vehicle dashboard is cracking, our experienced Lemon Law attorneys will see to it that the needed repairs are made.

Front End Vibrations in Dodge Rams -- The Death Wobble

For years, Dodge Ram pickup trucks were plagued by serious front-end vibrations. The shudders have been dubbed “the death wobble” by vehicle owners because the vibration occurred while traveling at high speeds on highways after hitting a bump on the road, making it difficult to control the vehicle.

Vibration problems have occurred in Ram 1500, 2500, 3500, 4500 and 5500 vehicles. It is unclear whether the vibration problem was caused by the drivetrain, the size of the cabin, the support bars in the roof or the tires. Despite the fact that owners were forced to pay for the repairs, Fiat Chrysler has not issued any recalls due to the vibration problem.
