Recall Details

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the right outside mirror contains convex glass when it should be flat. The images presented in the mirror may be closer than they appear, which may cause the driver to misjudge the distance from the object to the rear of the vehicle.
