Chrysler is recalling 76,000 Dodge Ram pickup trucks to fix a power steering issue that could make brake pedals return slowly after the driver applies them.
The recall is followed by a bulletin issued by e National Highway Traffic Safety Administration saying that some of these models may be affected with a flawed braking system.
The automaker has included Ram trucks from the 2010 and 2011 model years assembled between March 2009 and October 2010 in the recall, which affects about 76,112 units of the pickup.
The fault also stands to affect cars following the Rams owing to the rear brake lights taking longer than usual to turn off, which increases the risk of a crash. The automaker has confirmed that it has received 175 reports till date.
However, Chrysler spokesman Vince Muniga said there have been no crashes or injuries reported. He said the problem was first noticed by dealers and a modified cap will relieve some of the pressure causing the problem.
Chrysler said it will notify owners and owners can contact Chrysler at 800-853-1403.
