Fiat Chrysler recalls 1.7M trucks

Recommended Posts



Detroit — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said Thursday it will recall more than 1.7 million trucks in three separate recall campaigns — the latest blow for the Italian-American automaker that has faced a number of auto safety issues this year.

In total, Fiat Chrysler has now recalled about 12 million vehicles in the United States in at least 27 campaigns.

Fiat Chrysler said it will recall 1.35 million 2012-2014 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups and 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs because wiring harnesses can wear when contacted by a spring, which could cause a short circuit and make the air bags deploy without warning — and without a crash.

The company is aware of two injuries but no crashes linked to the issue.

The recall includes 1.06 million vehicles in the United States. Dealers will tie the wiring harness and install protective caps.

Fiat Chrysler is also recalling 193,000 2013 Ram 3500, 2014 Ram 2500/3500 and 3500 Chassis Cab pickups to inspect and repair bracket welds that may cause steering problems.

OUCH, FCA is sure destroying themselves. Maybe it would have been better for the US Gov to break up and sell off pieces of the Jeep, Ram, Dodge, Chrysler family before letting it go to Fiat.


GM would have been wise to pick up Jeep and Ram could have gone to MB or BMW or even Hyundia. Hate to say it but Chrysler and Dodge would have probably ended up in the History books but the technology and patents would have sold well.
