Recall Alert: 2014 and 2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab

Statement: Side-curtain Air-bag

September 10, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 188,000 trucks in the U.S. to make their side-curtain air-bags compliant with a federal regulation to reduce the risk of rear occupant ejection during a rollover.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents or complaints. And all FCA US vehicles are equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which reduces the risk of rollovers.

The recall involves model-year 2014 and 2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab pickups. Affected owners will be advised when they may schedule service, which will be performed at no cost to them.

FCA US advises vehicle occupants to wear their seatbelts, as NHTSA and other safety advocates recommend for occupants of all vehicles.

Customers may also call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Recall Alert: 2014-2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab trucks

RECALL Subject : Side Air Bag may Deploy Improperly

Report Receipt Date: AUG 21, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V534000
Component(s): AIR BAGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 188,047


Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)

SUMMARY:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab trucks manufactured August 26, 2013, to August 8, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with side air bag inflatable curtains (SABIC) that may not fully overlap the C-pillars in the event of a vehicle crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 226, "Ejection Mitigation."
CONSEQUENCE:
In the event of a vehicle crash, if a SABIC does not inflate as intended, there is an increased risk of injury to the rear seat occupant.
REMEDY:
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin on September 18, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R47.
