Driver's seatbelt was properly buckled and would not release when arrived at home. After attempting to free the buckle and sitting in the truck for nearly an hour, my family member finally arrived home and had to cut the belt to release me. Thank god this incident did not involve a collision or fire. Reported the issue to Chrysler customer assistance on the same evening via email. Still working to resolve the matter, nearly a month later. Seatbelt remains stuck in buckle and unable to be released. I refuse to pay $516 to have this repaired. This is apparently a faulty design; and I'm not the only one complaining about the 07 Ram 1500 seatbelts. My truck is still immaculate in condition and very well maintained. It is driven 100 highway miles per day to work; hence the high mileage. Not one problem with this truck until now. I'm very disappointed in Dodge (Chrysler) and the dealer in leaving this matter unresolved. No seatbelt should ever fail.....

The front driver's side seat belt retractor jams and does not keep the upper section of the seat belt tight against the driver's chest. When moving around during normal driving this causes multiple inches of slack to develop and the driver needs to manually pull out on the seat belt and feed it back to remove the slack. The upper mounting loop and the seatbelt itself are clean and not damaged.

I contacted Chrysler 3 times and no one wanted to address this problem, this was not caused by an accident, theres no frame or external damages caused to the vehicle, this shouldn't of happened, I was driving normal and the airbags shot out of nowhere bruising my arm and around my collar. I driving the car the way it is with no horn, seatbelts locked, and bags exposed. I have no way of getting to work so im forced to drive like this, I need this to be adressed because this is putting me and who ever sits in my car in danger because Chrysler does not want to take action, I shouldn't have to pay for this if this is somethimg that comes defective from factory.
