Recalls, recalls, recalls

Bought my 2015, 2500 last October. So far, a recall every 3 months. Most recent is for the tailgate latch.

I haven't had this many recalls on all my other vehicles in the last 20 years.

I really like this truck but geez. It's hard to have confidence in what you own when it's constantly in the shop for repairs.

Just got Another recall. This time for a faulty roll over airbag deployment. Will reprogram the software to fix. I now expect to get recall letters about every 2-3 months.

And another. This one is for faulty steering link.

Right now I'm averaging 1 every 4 months.

Wow that's pretty crazy. At this rate, your truck will be brand new in a couple more years.

I purchased a new 2018 Ram 2500 Cummins in March 2019 and have had 2 recalls thus far. The steering drag bar and the tailgate actuator malfunction. The fix from Ram for the steering issue is pure BS. Welding the nuts to the linkage adjuster - give me a break. I did do the tailgate recall. 15 minutes. This linkage thing has been going on for years. Do not understand why they don't just fix the issue on the assembly line with a part fix. Maybe it is a language barrier thing since FCA (Ram) is not an American company by ownership and manufacturing. If it were not for Cummins the Ram truck would be in a heap of trouble.

Yeah. I'm not sure how to adjust the "adjuster" after it's welded together. Far as I know, welding is meant to be permanent. Sounds like a quick patch to mitigate law suits.

Hey NC Ram, sorry to hear of the front end issues you are having with your truck. I am in the eastern part of N.C. near Wilmington.

I have had ALOT of front end issues on ALL of the Dodge CTD Pickups I have owned and to be honest got pretty tired of dealing with it all the time. It was one of the reasons I decided to switch to a 2014 Ford Super Duty 6.7 Power Stroke Diesel in 2015. I have almost 100,000 miles on the Super Duty and NO FRONT END issues at all, so far. But I still own my 1996 Dodge CTD 12 valve which has had some issues but not too bad.

Anyway, good luck with yours Sir.

Just had the tailgate recall completed last week when doing an oil change. Since I use a V notch tailgate for towing the rig, the tech gave me the part. It was a 1/4 piece of plastic that goes someplace in the latch.
