Ram Recalls

June 19th, 2023 by

When you purchase a Ram vehicle, you do everything possible to keep it in the best working condition. You have a sense of implicit trust that things will always be safe, secure, and free of imperfections with your Ram. As with many things in life, even the most carefully constructed and tested vehicles can experience problems, and as a result, recalls occur, whether on specific Ram models or specific Ram vehicle parts that you may have. If you have received a notice about a recall on your Ram, we advise you not to panic. Ram makes it easy to stay up to date on recalls, and if it is confirmed you are experiencing a Ram recall, we encourage you to bring your vehicle into our service center, where we will take care of any service needed due to the recall at no charge to you.

What is a Safety Recall, and Why Is It Important?

A safety recall is a notice issued by an automotive manufacturer such as Ram to let customers know about potential issues with given vehicles. Even if the problems are ultimately harmless, manufacturers believe in a “better safe than sorry” approach and send safety recalls so that customers can stay aware of prospective issues that could lead to potentially fatal outcomes. When safety recalls are sent, customers are strongly encouraged to bring their vehicles for repair or servicing as soon as possible. The key is to ensure customer awareness of any issues that are red-flagged, no matter how small.

How Do I Know if My Vehicle Has Been Recalled?

For Ram owners, it is important to stay as up-to-date as possible on recalls. If you want to know if your vehicle is recalled, or if any related parts or accessories have been recalled, Ram makes it easy to know. Just head to the official Ram website, and scroll all the way to the bottom. Under “Owners,” you will click a button that says “Check Recall.” From there, you’ll enter your VIN, and you will know in seconds whether or not your Ram vehicle has a current recall.

Current Recalls

Even if your particular Ram vehicle is not currently recalled, you may want to know about current Ram recalls in general. For an extensive list of the most recent recalls, Kelley Blue Book has everything laid out for you on the Recalls section of its website. Data comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the US Department of Transportation, and is available for Ram models all the way back to 2011.

What Do I Do if My Vehicle Has Been Recalled?

As we said earlier, the most important thing to do if you discovered there is a recall on your Ram vehicle is to not panic. The sooner you know about the problem, the sooner you can solve it. Always remember that your safety is the manufacturer’s priority, so never write off a recall as unimportant.
