Recall Alert: 2010 Ram Trucks

2010 Ram
Chrysler is recalling about 840 2010 Ram trucks because of incorrect tire pressure labels, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The labels on the affected vehicles display the incorrect weight or seating capacity information. The incorrect info could cause an owner to improperly follow vehicle loading specifications and increase the risk of a crash. Specific trims affected by the recall include the 1500 ST Quad Cab 4X2, which has inaccurate seating capacity labels, and some unspecified 2500 and 3500 trims whose labels have under-rated front/rear axle capacities.

Owners will be given replacement or supplemental tire pressure labels that they can install themselves. If a customer doesn’t want to install the labels, a Chrysler dealer will install them, and the customer can then mail proof of payment to the automaker for reimbursement. The notifications will be sent to both dealers and owners this month. For more information, owners may call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.

Wow, this is not good at all. Now you can get hurt even if you follow the tire pressure inflation directions to a tee... Personally I have never adjusted my own tires; Americas Tire does it for free. I'm pretty sure they also go along with whats printed on the label as well.

Well, it shocking and needed and immediate attention to short out at the earlier.

Good for Chrysler,not avoiding the minor problem !!

A Minor issue !!

Read your tire it says the tire pressure on the tire itself !!!

Unlike Toyota,who blames owners and never or is slow to recall,blowing up motors,rust and many more !!

Master Mechanic has it wrong, so don't take his advice. Tires fit all makes and models based n size and only suggest the maximum allowable PSI as clearly indicated on the sidewall. Your vehicle will specifically tell you the pressure to run your tires at, most commonly located under the driver door striker.

How nice would it be if the article actually gave us the appropriate tire pressure. I have a 2010 SLT 4x2 that says 40psi, but I noticed early on that the tires were wearing in the center, indicating overinflation. I ran them at 34 psi to even them out and then adjusted to around 36. That seemed to be the magic number for even wear on my truck.
