NHTSA Launches Probe of 1 million “Roll-Away” Dodge Ram and Dodge Durango Vehicles

According to reports, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched an investigation of 1 million Dodge Rams pickup truck and Durango SUVs after numerous reports surfaced of these vehicles rolling away after being placed into park. The NHTSA investigation will target 2013 – 2016 Dodge Rams and 2014 – 2016 Dodge Durango SUVs that have an electronic transmission with a rotary control that selects the vehicle’s gear position.

To date, the NHTSA has received 43 reported incidents of roll-away vehicles that resulted in 25 accidents and several injuries. The complaints indicated the vehicles rolled away after being put into park. In some cases, the vehicle was off when the roll-away occurred. In most cases, the vehicle was still on during the roll-away.
