Statement: Latching Mechanism
December 13, 2022 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Stellantis is voluntarily recalling an estimated 1.23 million pickup trucks to inspect and realign, as needed, certain latching components on their tailgates.

A routine review of customer service records led to a Stellantis investigation that discovered tailgate striker plates on certain pickup trucks may not be sufficiently aligned to accommodate complete closure. Such a condition, if it occurs, may put unsecured cargo at risk of spilling onto a roadway.

Stellantis is unaware of any potentially related injuries or accidents.

The recall is limited to certain model-year 2019-2022 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups.

Vehicles equipped with Ram’s multifunction tailgate and Ram 1500 Classic pickups are unaffected. Also excluded are vehicles equipped with sensors that alert drivers to insecure tailgates.


Affected customers will be advised as early as next month when service, which will be provided free of charge, becomes available. Stellantis urges customers to heed the instructions on all recall notifications.

In the interim, customers are reminded to secure cargo as referenced in their owners’ manuals. Those with additional questions or concerns may call 1-800-853-1403.

The recall also affects vehicles in Canada (est. 120,759), Mexico (est. 26.613) and certain markets outside North America (est. 27,404).

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$






Ram is recalling a total of 1,234,657 pickup trucks in the United States (plus a few hundred thousand sold outside the U.S.) to address tailgates that could pop open while driving. According to documentation posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "Misaligned tailgate strikers may cause a failure to properly latch the tailgate." If that happens, the tailgate could pop open unexpectedly, regardless of whether the vehicle is stationary or in motion. If that were to happen with a load in the truck bed while the vehicle was being driven, it could allow cargo to fall out, endangering other drivers.

Between June, 2019 and November, 2022, the automaker says it received 15 customer assistance records, 736 warranty claims, and 101 field reports potentially related to this issue, but isn't aware of any accidents or injuries potentially related to the issue. Stellantis, which owns the Ram brand, will reimburse any owners who paid to have this issue resolved in the past. No parts need to be replaced to fix the problem, just realigned.

According to NHTSA's documentation, on June 13, 2018, the automaker started building 2019-model-year trucks. Trucks built from that date until July 10, 2022, are included in the recall. After that date, "improved alignment tooling was implemented in vehicle production," which seems to have solved the problem. Still, less than 1% of all trucks are thought to be affected by the misaligned tailgate strikers. The automaker will notify dealers and begin notifying owners on or about 01/27/2023.

9 SUVs rate poor on crash tests: What's wrong with Chrysler?;

Big recalls




Dec 26, 2022
We're back for our second episode. Doug and Glenn discuss the number of recalls recently and why they could be happening. We speculate on what needs to happen with Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep. And lastly, there's new crash testing from IIHS, and some small SUVs didn't do well at all.

Over 67,000 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrids Recalled Over Engine Hazard
An electric short could kill the engine while you're driving.


JAN 26, 2023

Chrysler Pacifica hybrid driving in the mountains.
Chrysler
The popular Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan is having a rough few months. After a recall for fire risks late last year, the automaker is now alerting over 67,000 Pacifica Hybrid owners of a new recall that could shut off the engine, even when the car is in motion, which is a significant safety hazard.
According to a report sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) by Chrysler, over 67,000 minivans between model years 2017 and 2023 could experience a short circuit, which causes the gas engine to shut off and stop running.
It’s worth noting that the problem isn’t with the hybrid electric system but an internal transmission wiring connector that pairs the two systems. Chrysler says the connector could short out, resulting in an unexpected engine shutdown.


The recall covers all Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid PHEV minivans manufactured between August 12th, 2016, and January 9th, 2023. Stellantis (the parent company) will notify owners in early March about the recall and start setting up visits to the dealership.

However, this isn’t a permanent solution, at least not yet. The initial recall will provide a software update that could alert owners of a potential failure, giving them enough time to pull over safely. In the meantime, the company is busy working on a complete solution to the problem.
So far, the company has only received around 300 reports from the issue, with no crashes or injuries reported. Still, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the recall notice, get the update, and stay tuned for more details.
