Stellantis issues recall for vehicles due to stability control problems

A software malfunction in Stellantis’ electronic stability control systems is prompting a recall of 211,581 SUVs and pickup trucks. The defective anti-lock braking system has led to the deactivation of the safety feature, which helps prevent loss of steering control in emergency situations.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warns that driving without a stable system increases the risk of crashes, especially on icy or flooded roads. Studies have shown that ESC systems significantly reduce fatal collisions, especially single-vehicle and rollover crashes. Since 2012, all new passenger cars have been mandated to include an ESC system by the NHTSA.

The affected models in this recall are the 2022 Dodge Durango, 2022 Ram 2500, and 2022 Ram 3500. Of these vehicles, nearly 158,000 Ram 2500 pickups are being recalled, with over 53,000 Durangos and 524 Ram 3500s also included in the recall. Stellantis plans to notify affected vehicle owners starting in late July and will provide free updates to their anti-lock braking systems at dealerships.
