1. 2021 Ram Super Duty truck owners are being told to park outside and away from buildings.

    That's never a good sign. The Cummins 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine has an electrical short inside the intake air heater relay. Stellantis says the short can happen even when the truck is turned off and it's responsible for three fires.…

  2. A lawsuit concerning hacking vulnerabilities in Fiat-Chrysler’s (FCA) Uconnect system is headed to trial this October.

    The lawsuit was filed after researchers showed how a Jeep could be controlled remotely through the infotainment system. FCA has called the case meritless and tried to get it dismissed. When that didn’t work they turned to the U.S. Supreme Court. To FCA’s surprise, the court refused to even hear the appeal.

    It’s almost as if FCA thought the were in control of the situation and then suddenly they weren’t 🤔

  3. Roughly 2,400 Ram 4500 and 5500 trucks are being recalled to fix their brakes before they start leaking.

    The problem is with the ferrules (metal fasteners) used on the primary and secondary brake hoses located between the brake master cylinders and the hydraulic control units.

    Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) tracked the issue to January 15th, 2018 when someone forgot to install the anti-corrosion plating. The recall is scheduled to begin June 20th, 2018.

  4. Fiat-Chrysler was able to get most of the claims of a 2015 lawsuit thrown out, however the case won't be completely dismissed.

    Attorneys for Chrysler told the judge there is no evidence hackers have affected the vehicles since those vehicles were remedied under the recall and none of the owners say they changed their driving habits due to the hacking incident ... The judge dismissed most of the claims, three of those dismissed with prejudice, but ruled the plaintiffs do have standing to pursue damages for loss in value and overpayments for the vehicles.

    It's possible those plaintiffs will receive some sort of settlement if they carry on with the case, but it's looking less likely for a nationwide compensation settlement.

  5. It doesn't appear the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is going to do anything about Fiat-Chrysler's radio hack recall.

    NHTSA concludes Chrysler vehicles that weren't part of the recalls don't have radios with built-in cellular access or short-range wireless features, which allegedly eliminate the hacking threat. In addition, third-party testing showed potential cellular vulnerabilities were fixed by wireless carrier Sprint or repaired through updates to the Uconnect software.

  6. Consumers don't seem convinced that Fiat-Chrysler's (FCA) recall is doing enough to protect them against hacking.

    The hack was possible because of the Harmon Kardon uConnect infotainment systems installed in the affected Jeeps and other vehicles. The plaintiffs claim the uConnect 3G systems in the vehicles should be physically disconnected from the controller area network bus. The CAN bus links together the electronics of the vehicle, including vital functions such as the braking system and transmission.

Have a complaint about your vehicle?

The best way to find out what's wrong with a vehicle is from the people who drive them. Not only do owner complaints help us rank vehicles by reliability, but they're often used to spark class-action lawsuits and warranty extensions. Plus, they're a great way to vent.
