In February 2011, Chrysler Group is recalling certain Dodge Journey crossovers and Ram trucks because of three different issues: defective steering wheel systems, side-impact airbag sensors and noisy rear axles. The airbag-related issue affects 65,180 Dodge Journey vehicles manufactured from November 1, 2007, through September 7, 2008.

At the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website, it was revealed that the wires within the front door wire harnesses could fatigue and break, stopping the side-impact sensors from functioning and leading to inoperative side airbags.
Chrysler will replace the left and right door wiring harnesses free of charge. The issue affecting the second recall is related to the vehicle’s rear axle.

This affects 56,611 Ram 1500 trucks manufactured from September 2009 through December 2010. The vehicles may have a “noise coming from the rear axle bearing which could eventually seize."
