RAM vehicles sold over a five-year window may be impacted

 

More than 400 American Special Vehicle (ASV) RAM 1500 models are being recalled due to a heightened fire risk.

The recall affects vehicles sold between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2019.

Due to a manufacturing defect, the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooler may crack, causing coolant to leak into the intake manifold.

"There is an increased risk of vehicle fire, which may cause an accident or injury to the vehicle occupants, other road users or property damage," the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) says.
