Lieff Cabraser’s automotive defect team is investigating reports that owners and lessees of Ram 1500 pickup trucks and 2019-2022 Jeep Wrangler vehicles are having serious stalling problems. Driver complaints indicate the affected Jeep and Ram vehicles stall and shut off without warning while in motion. After stalling, the vehicles automatically engage the emergency brake.
Some Ram 1500 and Wrangler drivers describe their vehicles stalling at interstate highway speeds, while others have experienced Ram 1500 and Wrangler stalling issues at low speeds while initiating turns. Sudden engine stalls at any speed can create extremely hazardous road situations for drivers, passengers, occupants of other road vehicles, and pedestrians.
Concerned drivers of both Jeep Wranglers and Ram 1500 trucks further report that when they brought their vehicles in for repair after experiencing a sudden stall, no codes appeared via the vehicle’s onboard diagnostic system (OBD) to indicate any issue, or showing that the vehicle had stalled. Even more frustrating are related reports that dealerships and repair shops state they cannot replicate the problem (or will not repair it), despite drivers experiencing the stall defect in their vehicles multiple times.
If you own or lease a 2019-2022 Ram 1500 or a 2019-2022 Jeep Wrangler and have experienced any engine stalling, we urge you to contact us today via the form on this page. There is no cost or obligation for our review of your Ram 1500/Jeep Wrangler stalling case, and the information you provide can help us hold Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram accountable for all related stall defects in the 2019-2022 Ram 1500 pickup trucks and 2019-2022 Jeep Wranglers.
