After detecting a software malfunction that could disable the stability control systems of the vehicles, Stellantis has decided to recall no less than 211,581 Chrysler vehicles in the US. The models affected by this problem are the 2022 Dodge Durano and the Ram 2500 along with the Ram 3500.

Last year, Stellantis ranked as the world's fourth-largest automaker by sales, also grabbing the 61st place in the Forbes Global 2000 top. This giant has been around for just three years and was born from the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the PSA Group. The list of brands owned by Stellantis includes Chrysler, Dodge, and Ram, as well as 11 others. Sadly, no less than 211,581 Dodge and Ram vehicles have been recently recalled due to software issues. 

According to UPI, the vehicles that are being recalled "experience a malfunction in their anti-lock braking control module, which could cause stability control to fail and increase the risk of crash as a result" but, on the bright side, only three models are affected. These models are the 2022 Dodge Durango, Ram 2500, and Ram 3500. Once taken to a dealership, these cars will get a software update to the anti-lock braking control module. Obviously, this is a free operation.

To be sure that one's car is subject to this recall, owners can check the NHSTA website or Chrysler's recall lookup page. Drivers or pedestrians interested in the history of this iconic automotive brand might find Vincent Curcio's Chrysler: The Life and Times of an Automotive Genius to be a captivating read. This book is available in hardcover and paperback versions, starting at $26.24.
