This has been a bad year for Dodge/Chrysler and recalls, and now you can add another one to the pile.

If you own a 2015 - 2017 Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, or 3500 with a power locking tailgate you will need to get it fixed. Fiat Chrysler USA has issued a recall over the locking mechanism failing over time. If it breaks, the tailgate goes down and that could be bad if you are hauling cargo in the back,

The recall affects certain Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups from model years 2015 through 2017. Trucks equipped with manual tailgate locks are excluded from the campaign, as are those with eight-foot cargo beds.


Customers will be notified when service becomes available. In the interim, FCA US reminds that all loose cargo should be secured while driving, as stated in the operating manuals of the affected vehicles.

So be careful out there with your Dodge Ram, and secure your cargo!
