Chrysler Recalls 1997-2001 Models Because the Air Bag System May Become Disabled

Chrysler is recalling certain 1997-2000 Dodge Dakota, 1998-2000 Dodge Durango, and 1997-2001 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because sound deadening material inside the steering wheel may become dislodged and interfere with the clock spring ribbon, which can cause an open electrical circuit. An open circuit in the clock spring will illuminate the air bag warning light and disable the air bag system. With the air bag system disabled, there is an increased chance of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clock spring to correct this concern.

Chrysler Recalls Certain 1997-2000 Dodge Dakotas for Possible Loss of Braking Efficiency

Loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the brake tube and power steering hose for wear and replace them if necessary. A power steering bracket will be installed to insure adequate clearance between the brake pipe and power steering hose.

good mid size truck....
I bought this truck (3.9 V-6) with 74,000 miles several months ago and have put 6,000 miles on it and absolutely no problems. It is the best truck I have ever owned and use it just about every day. The previous owner did all the maintenance so I should be able to enjoy it for a long time.
