Tailgates on Ram pickups can unexpectedly open
Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 1.4 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 said in U.S. and Canadian government documents that if the tailgates open, unsecured cargo could fall into the road and cause a crash.
Dealers will fix the tailgate locking mechanism at no cost to owners. The recall is expected to start Sept. 14.
