On August 2, Fiat Chrysler released a recall for over one million of their most popular truck.
They issued the recall for more than 1.4 million Ram pickup trucks in the U.S. and Canada. They warned that tailgates could unexpectedly open while driving.
The recall, which includes approximately 1.15 million pickups in the United States alone, covers Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 models from 2015 to 2017.
"The affected vehicles are equipped with power-locking tailgates and either a 5-foot, 7-inch bed or a 6-foot, 4-inch bed," reported Fox Business.
The issue is with a connection part that may fracture and cause the tailgate to unlatch while driving, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website. However, there are no reports of crashes or injuries related the defect.
The automaker will notify owners of affected trucks. Dealerships will perform the repairs free of cost to the owner. The recall is scheduled to begin Sept. 14.
