The labels on the affected vehicles display the incorrect weight or seating capacity information. The incorrect info could cause an owner to improperly follow vehicle loading specifications and increase the risk of a crash. Specific trims affected by the recall include the 1500 ST Quad Cab 4X2, which has inaccurate seating capacity labels, and some unspecified 2500 and 3500 trims whose labels have under-rated front/rear axle capacities.
Owners will be given replacement or supplemental tire pressure labels that they can install themselves. If a customer doesn’t want to install the labels, a Chrysler dealer will install them, and the customer can then mail proof of payment to the automaker for reimbursement. The notifications will be sent to both dealers and owners this month. For more information, owners may call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
