American Special Vehicles has recalled Ram 2500 and 3500 models sold between January 1, 2016 and October 1, 2018 over concerns about the heater hose pipe.

The company reports a heater hose pipe mightn't be properly attached securely, creating a friction point with the brake pipe assembly.

It's possible this will cause a leak in the braking system, and a loss of braking performance that could make the driver lose control. Obviously, this poses an accident risk for the both the driver and other road users.

A total of 853 vehicles are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

American Special Vehicles will get in touch with owners of the affected vehicles and advice them to get in touch with their nearest dealer for a free fix.
