Chrysler says it will recall 91 2012 Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cab pickup trucks equipped with heavy-duty automatic transmissions for a possible condition that could cause power loss to the truck.

The company says, during production of the affected trucks, the transmissions that were placed in the vehicles did not meet proper design specifications, which were discovered during a consultation with a supplier. There have been no reports to the company of injuries, accidents, or complaints in regards to the vehicles in question, Chrysler says. 

Chrysler will send notification to the owners of the 91 affected trucks next month, and dealers will replace all affected transmissions at no charge to the owners.

Customers may contact the Chrysler Group by phone at (800) 853-1403 for further information about the recall.
