The Problem: Some heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmissions in the Ram chassis cab trucks may not meet the company’s design specifications. In that case, the Ram truck transmissions could suddenly lose motive power, potentially causing a crash. However, Chrysler says it has no reports of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.

The Fix: Chrysler will recall the Ram trucks and replace the transmissions for free, starting next month.

Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 91 2012 Ram 3500, Ram 4500, and Ram 5500 chassis cab trucks. Six of those are in Canada, while the remaining 85 are in the U.S.
