so I got a recall notice for loss of crank position on my 1500 ecodiesel today. what has me really peeved is they say my truck could stall and crash but the recall has no apparent fix at the moment and my dealer needed to read the letter to even know there was a recall.
How stupid is stellantis/FCA/Chrysler to do this? Now I don't know if i trust my truck to get me anywhere and I have no idea when or what is going to be fixed.
the government must be organizing this because this is incredibly moronic

So you'd be more comfortable if they don't say anything until they get enough parts together to perform the recall.
I get the frustration but I never get why people complain about recalls. As complicated as vehicles are recalls are going to happen.

so i haven't driven my truck since I got this notice. Honestly I am looking at getting a new beemer so IF I ever get the repair done I'll be ready to trade it in. The 535D is an awesome car and I get to keep a diesel engine.
The Ram at first was great but now it is such a disappointment.
I highly doubt I would buy stellantis/chrysler ever again. If you send a notice out just to save your ass and leave mine at risk your not the company I want to own a vehicle from.

If you are annoyed with this then you are going to hate any BMW they are nothing but money pits after 50k miles and have no resale value. I would either keep driving the truck because its bad to let it sit if the truck stalls you will only crash if you dont know how to steer and brake you will just need to put some muscle into it. Or just trade it in now they dont care about recalls you dont need to wait get a real diesel/cummins or go with a gasser 5.7/6.4 hemi has plenty of power.

Usually a Recall comes from NHTSA
They learn about from customer complaints & then they investigate.

IF their investigation shows that the customer complaints are Valid.
NHTSA sends its results to the Maker of the vehicle & inform the vehicle builder that they need to do something ASAP.
So to cover their butts, they sent out notices to the registered owners of the the vehicles involved.
Then they tell their Engineers to find a fix

Every vehicle manufacturer does the same thing on recalls. They are required to send the registered owner a notice as soon as they get the fix order from NHSTA. This happens whether they have the parts or not. With the parts issue every manufacturer is facing, you will most likely run into this with other brands as well. If it makes you feel better to get huffy and change brands then by all means do so. Chances are you will be posting something like this on that brands forums within the next 4 or 5 years too.
