2014 Ram ProMaster Recall Issued

By | March 03, 2014
Yet another recall has surfaced for Ram's new utility van. Chrysler is recalling certain 2014 Ram ProMaster vans because brake fluid may leak from these vehicles. According to a report filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the problem began during manufacturing. A tool used during the process may have damaged one of the brake hoses, causing a leak. Drivers may experience poor braking and it may take longer than normal for the vehicle to come to a stop. Luckily, no injuries or accidents relating to the problem have surfaced. An estimated 5,664 vans, made between July 1 and November 15 of this year, are included in the Ram ProMaster recall for the U.S. market. The recall is scheduled to begin this month. At this time, dealers will inspect and replace the brake hoses free of charge. In the meantime, owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.

Just last month, Chrysler also issued a separate recall of the 2014 ProMaster over a problem with sticky pedals. In the affected models, the accelerator pedal may get stuck in the wide open throttle position if the driver pushes it down at a certain angle. This problem occurs thanks to interference with the accelerator pedal stopper, according to the recall document. This recall is also expected to begin this month. Source: NHTSA
