AFFECTED VEHICLES

  • 2014 - 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 and 1500 Classic trucks equipped with the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine

EGR COOLER DEFECT EXPLAINED

Affected trucks have been built with defective EGR coolers that can crack due to thermal fatigue. This can allow coolant to leak into the running engine, which can result in combustion and a vehicle fire.

YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS

Hagens Berman believes vehicle owners deserve more, and that these automakers should be held accountable for putting owners and drivers at grave risk of injury. While Fiat Chrysler would rather wait until they are forced to act, we think those put in harm's way should receive immediate help.
