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.
