2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Recalls

Chrysler has recalled certain 2002-2009 Dodge Rams (1500/2500/3500) because the wiper module assemblies may be susceptible to water intrusion, which may result in partial or complete loss of windshield wiper capability. This may cause reduced visibility for the driver, which could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the wiper module assemblies with vented wiper motor housings.

I bought my truck new. At 30K, I replaced front and rear brakes . At 60K, I replaced rotors and brakes front and rear. Trans has been an issue with filter replacements. Correct factory filters are mandatory for proper cold start shifting to avoid slipping and jerking. Water pump and clutch assembly went at 75K. Noticed a vibration when accelerating two days in a row.....on the third day it blew.
