This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
Chrysler has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in some 2001 and 2002 model year Dodge Ram Van / Wagon, Dakota and Durango vehicles and 2002 model year Dodge Ram Pick Up Trucks equipped with a column mounted automatic transmission shift lever
The problem is...
The Ignition / Park interlock system on your vehicle (VIN: ) may become inoperative. This can allow the shifter to be moved out of the "Park" position with the ignition key removed (or in the "Lock" position). This can also allow the ignition key to be removed when the shifter has not been placed in the "Park" position. Either of these conditions could allow the vehicle to roll away and cause a crash without warning.
What your dealer will do...
Chrysler will repair your vehicle free of charge (parts and labor).
To do this, your dealer will replace the steering column gear shift blocker. The work will take about an hour to complete. However, additional time may be necessary depending on service schedules.
What you must do to ensure your safety...
Simply contact your dealer
right away to schedule a service appointment. Ask the dealer to hold the parts for your vehicle or to order them before your appointment. Remember to bring this letter with you to your dealer.

Ok... since my scanner didnt work, I just typed it all...
*edit: just found it - http://fleet.alaska.gov/Bulletins/chevG28.pdf
Granted, I probably could have found the recall online somewhere, but oh well. I needed a typing lesson, haha.
I didnt get the letter myself, but a friend of mine scanned a copy for me.
My friend claims that it doesnt matter if its still under waranty or not... but who knows. I've been too lazy to go see.
