Ram 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

: the contact stated while driving 55 mph on the highway, the vehicle hesitated and lost power without warning. It was maneuvered off the road and towed to the dealer, who determined the transmission needed to be replaced. Also, while driving various speeds, the driver seat moved. The dealer determined a bolt fractured and the track needed to be replaced.

Consumer states the passenger side seat mechanism was broken. This caused the seat to not be stable while driving. The seat would rock back and forth.
