DETROIT, Mich. — Chrysler produced trucks built from 2008 through 2012 have been recalled for power train problems.

It is reported that about 278,000 trucks are affected:

  • 2009-2012 Ram 1500 trucks manufactured from February 27, 2008, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through October 20, 2011
