Chrysler recalls 150,000 Ram trucks and Dodge Journey vehicles

Chrysler today recalled nearly 150,000 trucks and SUVs to address problems including steering, air bag issues and the potential for its Ram trucks to stall. The Auburn Hills automaker is conducting three separate recalls to fix the issue, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website.

The first of the three recall covers about 22,000 Ram trucks from 2008-2011 model years that address a steering problem. Chrysler said it received about 86 complaints over a three year period.

The second recall covers 65,000 2009 model year Dodge Journey SUVs that fix side air bags that might not deploy.  Chrysler said it has received 23 complaints from customers about the air bag lamp but didn’t receive any reports of crashes, fires or injuries.

The last recall includes 57,000 Ram 1500 trucks from the 2011 model year to fix components in rear axles that could cause the trucks to stall.

All the recalls are expected to start in February. Owners can call Chrysler at (800) 853-1403 for more information.
