Recent Recall Announcements

FCA US is recalling some vehicles to correct their service and owner’s manuals, and inspect and replace their wheel studs, as needed. Affected are certain model-year 2012-2021 Ram 3500 heavy-duty pickups, and 4500 and 5500 cab-chassis vehicles.

Routine customer data analysis led to an FCA US investigation that discovered certain service and owner’s manuals contain incorrect lug-nut torque instructions. Accordingly, the corresponding vehicles may have had their lug nuts over-torqued, a condition that could compromise studs and lead to wheel separation.

There is no component defect and torque applied during vehicle assembly is within specification, so the recall condition may only be present in vehicles that have been subject to wheel-removal as part of a service or upfit procedure. The Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Dealers are currently in possession of correct service instructions, and production vehicles are now being delivered with updated owner’s manuals. The campaign is limited to vehicles equipped with dual rear wheels and flanged lug nuts.

FCA US will advise affected customers when service becomes available.

FCA US is recalling some older-model vehicles in the U.S. to replace the airbag covers on their steering wheels.

An FCA investigation discovered these vehicles are equipped with certain clips, no longer in use, that may — over time — loosen and separate from the plastic emblems they are meant to secure. Should this happen and there is a driver-side air bag deployment, the clips and/or plastic emblems may act as projectiles.

The recall is limited to model-year 2007-2011 Dodge Nitro SUVs, and model-year 2008-2010 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.

What you need to know: In the interim, FCA strongly advises against tampering with the emblems, which are located in the center of the vehicles’ steering wheels. The airbags associated with this campaign are not from Takata.

The recall number is W09. The repair for this recall is now available. Please visit your local dealership for an appointment.

FCA US is voluntarily recalling 2013 – 2016 Dodge Darts sedans equipped with automatic transmissions to replace their shift cable bushings.

The FCA campaign number is V34.

An FCA US investigation discovered certain vehicles are equipped with a cable bushing that may degrade after prolonged exposure to high ambient heat and humidity. Should degradation occur, it may prohibit the driver from shifting gears.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries or collisions, but such circumstances raise the risk of unintended vehicle movement. Therefore, customers are reminded to follow the vehicle’s operating instructions before exiting the vehicle. These instructions include shutting off the engine and engaging the parking brake.

In the extremely rare event that the cable bushing becomes disconnected while driving, brake function remains, which helps preserve driver-control.

In 2015 and 2016, Takata Corporation advised the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that a significant number of its driver and passenger airbag inflators that contain a non-desiccated phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant (an ammonium nitrate propellant without a chemical drying agent) are defective.

Prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity and high temperatures may cause the propellant to degrade.

Activation of degraded non-desiccated ammonium nitrate may cause an inflator rupture during normal airbag deployment events, possibly propelling metal fragments through the vehicle cabin that could result in serious injury or death to both the driver and vehicle passengers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please visit the Takata Airbag Inflator Recalls page for details regarding affected vehicles.

NHTSA and Takata are prioritizing future recalls based on when the affected inflators are likely to pose an unreasonable risk to safety, considering time, temperature and environmental moisture. Therefore, the recall plan has been structured with phases and three geographic zones based on time in service and climatic conditions. For more information, visit www.safercar.gov/rs/takata/

FCA US recommends that you regularly check recall applicability using recalls.mopar.com or www.safercar.gov . You will need to input your 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) to obtain specific information about your vehicle.

FCA US has completed the process of phasing out the use of Takata frontal non-desiccated PSAN airbag inflators as of June 23, 2016. Current model year vehicles produced before this date are not subject to a current recall. Based on multiple independent investigations and NHTSA's independent expert, NHTSA has concluded that the non-desiccated Takata frontal airbag inflators do not pose an unreasonablerisk to safety until they reach a certain level of propellant degradation after long-term exposure to environmental moisture and fluctuating high temperatures. NHTSA and Takata are prioritizing recalls based on when affected inflators are likely to pose an unreasonable risk to safety, considering time, temperature and environmental moisture, which depends in part on a vehicle's operating location. According to NHTSA's current order, all of these components will be recalled by the end of 2018.
