2010 Dodge Ram HD – Click above for high-res image gallery

Owners of 2010 Dodge Ram and Ram HD pickups are being asked to head to their nearest dealership. The trucks are part of a recall focusing on a label printed with incorrect information. For some vehicles, the tire-pressure label lists incorrect weight or seating capacity information. If the inaccurate information on the labels is followed, it could lead to safety issues as a result of improperly loaded trucks.

New labels will be installed free of charge at your nearest Dodge dealership. The recall is scheduled to begin this month (October 2010). For more information, take a look at the press release posted after the jump.

      So, do we need another Autoblog spinoff? Recallblog? Two recall stories on the first page. It seems like the number of recalls has been going up.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Is this worth reporting on autoblog?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Of course it's worth reporting on Autoblog, John. Or any other auto industry website. Maintaining a set of tires is a lot cheaper than buying a set of new ones prematurely. And a lot safer, t'boot!

        I think it's relevant! They should just mail the friggin things with the notification and say "Stick this on X spot" and call it a day! People might have to take a half day at work just to get get a freakin sticker. wtf...

      Sorry, wrong plant. Trucks are built in Michigan and mexico. Those guys were at the Jeep plant.

      This reminds me of a recall of the Dodge Omni/Plymouth Horizon back in the early 80's. Defective brakes? Faulty wipers? Flawed door locks? Nope. The supplier forgot to emboss the horn symbol on the steering wheel. The horn worked fine, but I guess the government was afraid drivers would get confused if they didn't see the horn symbol and wouldn't push on the center of the steering wheel!

      So, did this happen before or after their lunch break??
      • 4 Years Ago
      When are people going to educate themselves, We get most of our oil from Canada and Mexico. If you are truly patroitic, you quit wining about what everybody else drives and be thankful you live in a country where you can drive what ever you want!
      • 4 Years Ago

      @TechySpecy & Other Ignorant Dolts !!

      You are so ignorant....If truck buyers cant read,but they have $60,000 + to spend on a Ram Heavy Duty ,how did they manage that !!!

      I just hate ignorant people such as yourself,who asume truck buyers are rednecks,cant read ect....I see more poor uneducated people driving little Honda's and other imports..People who soil themselves daily drive small cars because they cannot afford to buy a truck !!

      I owned a BMW,Acura,Cadillac,Mercedes and now a Dodge Ram !!

      Most people I see who have trucks are affluent ,alot are business owners and make a load of money !! We dont car if we get 13 mpg in the city,because money is plenty !! And we love the luxury of driving a high end truck daily,though we dont need a truck,we want one...Unbeatable view of the road,comfort,safety,great looks and enough power to dust off many high end cars !!

        Your response would be significantly more convincing if you demonstrated a better command of how to write the English language.

        While that's a common nit-picky internet retort, it's particularly appropriate in this case, as we're talking about the language skills of truck owners.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah! Trucks are serious! And big! No sense of humour! Sense of humour is not bad ass! Yeah! *some other loud noises and !!!'s to make people realise I'm a real man and stuff*

        @ techyspecy
        Sports cars and super cars get pretty crappy MPG and no one has a need for them at all and I don't see anyone complaining about them.

        btw nice name
        • 4 Years Ago
        Many sports car can be driven in a civil manner and still return acceptable fuel economy. Trucks suck down gas no matter how they are driven.

        Many Corvettes, BMWs, and Porsche's can get close to 30 mpg. Some can't, but a truck nevers gets good mileage because it weighs 5,000 to 7,000 lbs and has the aerodynamics of a brick. The truck is screwed from every angle.

        My point is, there are many "big" vehicles out there that get great fuel economy compared to pickups if you don't really need a truck for any other reason other than just owning a truck.
