Chrysler has announced that it's recalling over 121,000 vehicles in two separate actions. Additionally, the carmaker is also recalling 65,180 Dodge Journey crossovers from the 2009 model year due to faulty wiring. Both recalls are expected to begin in February and Chrysler will repair the axles in Ram 1500 models and replace the both front door wiring harnesses in Dodge Journey models free of charge as necessary.

Here’s the full list of vehicles being recalled. Chrysler Group is recalling 150,000 vehicles, including 22,000 2008-2011 Dodge Ram trucks with steering problems; 65,000 Dodge Journey SUVs with side air bags that may not discharge; and 57,000 2011 Dodge 1500 trucks which may stall due to faulty components in the rear axles. For their part, Ford is recalling 15,000 Ford F-series pickup trucks from 2011 (including the F150, F250, F350, F450, and F550) and some 2011 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers due to electrical problems that may result in fires.
