Chrysler recalling a million Ram trucks to inspect, possibly fix tie-rod ends.

The AP (11/8) is among the national outlets reporting on Chrysler’s recall of “about 1.2 million Ram trucks to fix front-end problems that could lead to steering troubles,” announced yesterday for three categories of the Ram trucks. The company says only about 453,000 trucks will require repairs following inspections, but a statement yesterday did admit that Chrysler “knows of six crashes and two injuries involving the 2008 to 2012 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks that are being recalled, and one crash with no injuries from the other recalled models.” Technician error, the company said, is responsible for why “tie-rod ends in the steering system may have been installed improperly,” an issue that can lead to steering problems.

        Also reporting are Reuters (11/8), Bloomberg News (11/8, Clothier, 1.91M), and CNN’s Money (11/8).
