Logo - Chrysler (FCA US LLC)Chrysler (FCA US LLC), an Auburn Hills, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 5,495 model year 2019 RAM 2500, 3500 and 3500 Cab Chassis Trucks marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V635000 reports that the brake calipers in the recalled vehicles may have been manufactured with an incorrect assembly fluid. If this defect occurs, it can cause the caliper’s rubber seals to swell.

FCA US will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the front brake calipers and brake hoses and bleed the brakes, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 18, 2019. Owners may contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-1403 during normal business hours. FCA US’ designation for this recall is V98.
