WASHINGTON (May 17, 2016) — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has granted the petition of Chrysler Group L.L.C. for a finding of inconsequential noncompliance regarding mismarked certification labels on some model year 2014 Dodge Ram trucks.
Approximately 198 Ram 2500 trucks and 87 Ram 3500 trucks, all built between March 4 and 6, 2016, were involved in Chrysler's petition, according to the notice published in the May 17 Federal Register.
The certification labels on the trucks lack the designated rim size and type, Chrysler told NHTSA. The auto maker said the noncompliance should be considered inconsequential because, among other things, the rim and wheel size could be deduced from the information on the tire inflation pressure label or the tire sidewall information.
The grant of inconsequential noncompliance means Chrysler will not have to conduct a formal recall of the trucks. The Federal Register notice can be found by clicking here.
