The Ram 1500 is one of several vehicles covered by a new recall due to an axle defect.

A problem with a rear axle component that could cause a loss of control is forcing Chrysler to recall a wide array of vehicles including its full-size and midsize pickups and several SUV models.

In all, a total of 278,222 Ram 1500 pickups from the 2009 through 2012 model-years are covered by the service action, along with 2009 to 2011 Dodge Dakota pickups and 2009 Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango SUVs.

In a separate announcement, Chrysler also says it will recall 4,278 Dodge Viper sports cars from the 2003 and 2004 model-years. That service action is the result of a circuit board problem that could prevent the vehicle’s airbag from properly inflating.  A similar problem already forced the recall of older Jeep Liberty and Jeep Grand Cherokee models.
