Multiple news agencies have indicated recently that Chrysler has been the center of a discussion regarding the safety of their Grand Cherokee and Liberty models.
Following reports that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is pushing the company to recall several vehicles due to a potential problem with the vehicles’ engines, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that all units of the 2013 Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 trucks are being recalled.
The recall was issued once the automaker learned that the affected vehicles come with optional tail lamps that may fail to illuminate once the driver activates the turn signal indicator, which could cause a problem for the driver since motorists following behind may not get a notification the driver is turning.
This issue represents a failure to comply with federal standards and because of this, the company decided to issue this recall promptly. Affected vehicle owners are being notified of this recall. Cars with the defective turn signal malfunction will have the Central Body Controller software reprogrammed at authorized dealers for free. Affected consumers with any questions or concerns related to this issue could contact Chrysler or follow this link to read the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s official recall announcement.
