Ram recalls 76,000 pickups for braking concerns
[ 0 ] December 21, 2010 | Rick
Ram Trucks manufactured between March 2009 and October 2010 and equipped with a diesel engine and Hydroboost brake system may experience slow brake pedal return. This issue is created by excessive venting by the power steering reservoir cap. Slow pedal return can also create delayed reaction of the brake lights turning off, potentially causing an accident.

Chrysler will notify users of affected vehicles and dealers will replace power steering reservoir caps free of charge. The campaign for this recall is due to begin in February 2011. Concerned owners may contact Chrysler directly at 800.853.1403 and reference safety recall number K33.
