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.

  • The recall is expected to begin on April 30th, but so far they have no idea how they're going to fix the problem. All they know is that owners need to stay away from flammable items until they figure it out.
  • The affected trucks include the Ram 2500, 3500, 4500, and 5500. They're all from the 2021 model year and built between 08/12/2020 and 01/08/2021.

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.
