A June investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has led to a full recall of the 2005 Dodge Ram, after investigators discovered a loose pinion nut could cause the rear axle to seize. 280,000 vehicles are affected globally, while 257,000 are in the US market.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced that it's looking into Chrysler Group's handling of a pair of recalls affecting roughly one million Ram pickup trucks. Reuters is reporting that the regulatory agency is focusing on the availability (or lack thereof) of parts and "poor communications" from the automaker in its investigation.
