The first recall involves approximately 660,000 heavy duty Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks from model years 2013 through 2017, over concerns drivers could potentially experience steering loss due to a nut that could come loose.
FCA said it is aware of at least 1 injury and 8 accidents likely related to the issue. This recall affects about 574,000 vehicles sold in the U.S., the automaker said.
The second worldwide recall involves about 222,000 Ram 1500 pickup trucks from model year 2019 to more properly secure brake pedals while the vehicles’ adjustable-pedal feature is in use.
The brake pedal in affected models could get detached if drivers move pedals to the rear-most position, FCA said, which could be dangerous if trucks are traveling at highway speeds.
Last month, FCA recalled about 180,000 2019 Ram 1500 pickups to tighten a fastener linked to reports of power-steering loss. The automaker said the issue could lead to steering problems.
