Fiat Chrysler Recalls Over 660K Pickups; Steering Could Fail

February 05, 2019 - 2:14 pm

DETROIT (WWJ) - Fiat Chrysler is recalling over half-a-million heavy-duty pickup trucks over a potential steering problem. 

FCA says a loose nut can cause a loss of steering control in model-year 2013-2017 Ram 3500 pickups, model-year 2014-2017 Ram 2500 pickups, and 3500 chassis cabs from 2014 through 2017.

Most of the affected vehicles are in North America, with 573,876 of a total 660,129 in the U.S., according to the automaker. 

FCA says an investigation found a specific steering-linkage configuration on certain vehicles may separate over time. If this were to occur, the driver may experience steering loss.
The company is aware of one potentially related injury and eight potentially related accidents.

Customers will be contacted about when they can schedule service.
