Is Your Ram Truck Eligible For That Massive Buy-Back Program?


Your life might depend on knowing.

Just the other day, Fiat Chrysler was slapped with a $105 million fine by the NHTSA for failing to properly recall approximately 11 million vehicles. The issue involved rear-mounted fuel tanks on old Jeeps that caused some fatal fires. Nice, huh? Anyway, the settlement agreement made between FCA and the NHTSA also involves a buy-back program for some 200,000 Ram trucks (alongside that Jeep buy-back/trade-in deal). Why the buy-back? Steering issues that involve defective parts that can cause drivers to lose control.

So the questions are whether you’re A) a Ram truck owner, and B) is your truck one of the 200,000 eligible to be bought back? To give you a quick answer, here’s the list of Ram trucks and model years that are eligible: Certain Ram 1500s from 2009 to 2012, 2008 Ram 1500 Mega Cab 4x4, and certain 2008-2012 Ram 2500 4x4, 3500 4x4, 4500 4x4, and 5500 4x4. The 2009 Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango SUVs are included as well as the 2009-2011 Dodge Dakota. An FCA spokesman has already confirmed that repurchased vehicles will be resold once they’ve undergone the necessary repairs.
