2016 Ram 2500 Steering Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemRecall fix for drag link, per manufacturer is following your requirements to weld adjustment nuts to drag link adjuster. No parts available at this time, no future fix is underway. I feel this is an unacceptable fix. Welding a steering part that is designed to be adjustable is not a safety fix. I purchased an aftermarket drag link and replaced it myself until a safe fix is available. Fca refused to reimburse me for the replacement drag link. Note the replacement is not welded, super glued or duck taped fix. The welding of the drag link would require it to be cut to be adjusted and then rewelded. If any future repairs are required a reputable repair shop will not work on this vehicle due to the poorly designed fix. The only repair then would be the dealer who is not a certified welding company. It would not allow me to take my vehicle for repair or maintenance to any shop i would want. I was unaware that you are the ones that design a repair and not require the manufacturer to have replacement part. I hope the lug nuts or steering wheel does not fail, they will want to weld it also. Poor design and poor fix. I am sure that you would not transport your children, family members or grand children in a poorly repaired fix.
