Chrysler recalls over 200,000 SUVs, trucks due to software malfunction: See affected vehicles

Chrysler is recalling 211,581 vehicles due to a software malfunction where the ABS control module may disable the electronic stability control system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"Driving with a disabled electronic stability control system can increase the risk of a crash," the NHTSA said in the recall notice. The recall affects certain 2022 Dodge Durango and Ram 2500 and 3500 vehicles made by Stellantis-owned Chrysler, the NHTSA said.

Affected products include certain:

  • 2022 Dodge Durango

  • 2022 Ram 2500

  • 2022 Ram 3500

Dealers will update the ABS control module free or charge, the notice says, and owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on July 26, 2024. Owners may contact FCA US, LLC customer service at 1-800-853-1403. The recall number is 55B.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued multiple recalls last week, including notices for over 460,000 Kia Telluride vehicles that could catch fire while parked or driving.

The automobile manufacturer said the front power seat motor may overheat due to a stuck power seat slide knob. As a result, this can cause a vehicle to catch fire while parked or driving. A car that catches on fire increases the risk of injury, the NHTSA report said.

The automobile manufacturer is warning drivers with the affected vehicles to park outside and away from buildings until the recall repair is complete.

Honda is recalling 114,686 of its 2018-2020 Fit and 2019-2022 HR-V vehicles that were previously recalled under NHTSA recall number 23V-046.

The rearview camera image may not display when the engine is started with a key. This defect occurs because of a design error in the audio display power circuit. If the rearview camera fails to show what is behind the driver’s vehicle, it will increase the risk of a crash, the NHTSA report said.

Toyota is recalling 102,092 of its 2022-2023 Tundra and Lexus LX600 vehicles that are equipped with a V35A engine.

In the NHTSA report, the automobile manufacturer said that debris from the manufacturing process may contaminate the engine and cause the main bearings to fail. This can cause the vehicle’s engine to stall and cause a loss of drive power. A loss of drive power will increase the risk of a crash.
