Fiat-Chrysler Recalling Ram Pickup Trucks

Fiat-Chrysler is recalling nearly one-and-a-half-million Ram pickups in the U-S and Canada because tailgates with power locks can open while the trucks are moving.

The recall covers Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups from the 2015 through 2017 model years.

The company says if the tailgates open, unsecured cargo could fall into the road and cause a crash.  But Fiat-Chrysler says it has no reports of any crashes or injuries.

F-C-A received more than 58-hundred complaints and warranty claims about the problem.

Dealers will fix the tailgate locking mechanism at no cost to owners.
