The driveshaft may fracture

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling 10,160 model year 2018-2019 Ram 1500 pickup trucks.

The rear driveshaft may have an incomplete weld fusion between the tube and tube yoke, which may lead to weld cracking or the driveshaft fracturing.

A fractured rear driveshaft could detach from the vehicle and become a road hazard, or it may result in a loss of drive power, both of which can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear driveshaft free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin June 15, 2019.

Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. The Chrysler recall number is V48.
