Potential Dodge Ram 1500 Power Steering Failure Lawsuit

National Auto Defect Attorneys Ready to Serve You

McCune Law Group, McCune Wright Arevalo Vercoski Kusel Weck Brandt, APC, (MLG) is investigating claims for a potential auto defect lawsuit in relation to power steering defects of 2013-2022 Dodge Ram 1500 truck models. The alleged defect causes the affected models to experience an intermittent and complete loss of power steering while the vehicle is in motion. Drivers allege that the power steering can fail at any driving speed, but failure at lower speeds can make turning the steering wheel increasingly difficult. This can pose serious safety issues for the consumers who own the affected vehicle and for those on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has already received hundreds of reports from consumers stating that their power steering failed completely or intermittently.

In March 2016, Fiat Chrysler Automotive (FCA) recalled a small number of 2015-2016 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks to address an electronic power steering defect that could lead to the loss of power steering assistance. NHTSA is now investigating that recall to determine if more Dodge RAM 1500 trucks should have been included.

Power Steering Failure Can Pose a Serious Threat

The failure of power steering in Dodge Ram 1500 model trucks can pose a serious threat to both the driver and others on the road. Power steering is a crucial component that assists in steering control by reducing the effort required to turn the vehicle. When this system fails, it can result in significantly increased steering effort, making it difficult for the driver to maneuver the truck, especially at low speeds or during tight turns. This loss of control can lead to accidents, especially in emergency situations where quick and precise steering responses are essential. Additionally, the sudden failure of power steering can catch drivers off guard, potentially causing them to lose control of the vehicle, posing a significant safety hazard to everyone on the road.

Frequently Asked Questions

These include difficulty turning the steering wheel, unusual noises such as whining or squealing, and fluid leaks around the power steering components. Any sudden changes in steering responsiveness or the appearance of warning lights on the dashboard should also be taken seriously.

The impact of power steering failures on driving safety is substantial. Without proper steering assistance, drivers may struggle to navigate their Dodge Ram 1500 trucks effectively, especially when turning or maneuvering in tight spaces.
