1998 Dodge RAM Other Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID127867
 Internal NHTSA #700432
 Model Year1998
 File date10/08/20
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemRam 2500, our 12 year old son was riding in the back seat of this extended cab pickup truck and was securely fastened into the 3-point seatbelt behind the driver's seat. When we hit a large pothole, his head snapped back and hit the glass rear window. There is no head restraint or head protection of any kind for the rear seat passenger. He suffered a mild contusion. If this was a more severe episode, or an accident, the injuries would have been severe. We need to have head restraint protection made available to us for rear seat passengers immediately. This is a very dangerous situation that we were unaware of when we purchased this vehicle. Our dealer tells us there is nothing available through chrysler to fix this problem.
