Ram Pickup Recall
CBJ — About 875,000 Ram pickup trucks worldwide are being recalled to fix tailgates that can open while the trucks are being driven.
The recall includes certain Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups from the 2013 through 2018 model years that have power locking tailgates. Affected 2015 through 2017 trucks have 8-foot beds, and the affected 2013, 2014 and 2018 trucks have beds of other sizes and were built before April 1, 2018.
Fiat Chrysler says it’s not aware of any injuries or accidents caused by the problem.
The company had already recalled 1.1 million trucks in the U.S. in 2018 for the same problem, and added 410,000 in May of 2019, for a total of more than 2.4 million.
Most of the recalled trucks are in the U.S. and Canada. Dealers will repair the tailgate latch.
Owners of the latest batch of recalled trucks will get letters in the mail.
