There have been 5 recalls on my Dodge Ram. The airbags may rupture in 2015, the rear axle pinion nut may loosen at the differential (powertrain) in 2014, again the airbags inflator may rupture in 2014, the wheel hub assembly (wheels) in 2010, also a recall for the after market replacement pitman arms (steering) in 2010. I have gone to my Chrysler dealer in las cruces, New Mexico; the Dodge dealer has been closed for a few years now. I have been told I have to have a notification from Chrysler/Dodge to have them just to take a look at it, much less fix the problems. Now there is a huge recall; this is now really gotten serious. Please help me as much as you can to take care of the malfunctions on my Dodge Ram as soon as possible. I have not taken the Dodge on long distance road trips for the past couple of years now. The failed components listed below do not show all the malfunctions I have listed above.

I have made contact with local car dealer Laredo Dodge located at 6320 bob bullock loop, Laredo, Texas. 78041. Phone 956-267-8830, to fix the two recalls on my Dodge Ram slt 1500 2005 truck and after they making the appointments, they continue to claim there are no parts to fix these two open recalls and that they will let me know in the future. That's the same thing they told me two weeks ago. They even called me to let me know not to forget and bring my truck for the two open recalls and when I get there...there are no parts available.

We keep geeting the run around about the part non-availability and no end in sight for the waiting. I am afraid to drive the truck as the air-bag may explode in my face. Can't we get this completed soon? its distracting, while I drive, to be constantly worried about having it blow up!!

Received several recall notices from Fiat Chrysler automobiles (R25) for defective airbags, first dealer would not call me back on recall notice, second dealer finally did get back a hold of me to inform me that the waiting list for replacement airbags was now pushed back to November. This is unacceptable. Update 9/15/15 updated 09/24/15

I received two recall notices for fixes on my 2005 doge Ram. I have had this vehicle for one year. The recall notices are for defective airbag inflator housing and a rear axle pinion nut. In the rec all notice I was informed there is no permanent fix for either of these problems. Both defects could cause injury or death. I want Chrysler to take this dangerous vehicle off my hands and reimburse me for the $12,000 I paid for it a year ago. Because of these dangerous situation I will not drive this vehicle and cannot afford to buy another. I feel Chrysler should take this dangerous vehicle off my hands and reimbursed me for what I paid for it so I can purchase a vehicle that is safe to drive!

My sister was in a fatal car accident June 23rd 2015. About a week and a half after her death we received a recall for the trucks rear axle pinion nut. Then a week after that we received another recall in the mail regarding the driver airbag inflator. During the incident her trucks right rear tire was snapped at the axle leaving us to believe that the pinion nut was loose and caused this rear axle to seize and break. In the crash all of the airbags failed to deploy. The pinion nut recall was issued in February of 2015 and we are questioning why it took Chrysler 5 months to provide us with this information.
