Vehicles Affected: Approximately 410,000 model-year 2015-17 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks equipped with an 8-foot bed and power locking tailgate, and model-year 2018 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups built before April 1, 2018, also equipped with a power locking tailgate

The Problem: The tailgate actuator limiter tab may fracture and cause the tailgate to unlatch and open while driving, which may cause cargo to fall out and create a road hazard, increasing the risk of crash.

The Fix: Dealers will repair the tailgate latch for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ram manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners June 28. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
