- Fiat Chrysler Issues Recall for 1.7 M Ram Pickup Trucks
Fiat Chrysler has recalled 1.7 million Ram heavy-duty pickup trucks including multiple models manufactured between 2012 and 2014. The recall was issued to inspect and fix wiring harnesses, airbags and steering components that could be faulty.
The largest recall includes more than one million Ram 1500 and larger trucks and Chassis Cabs whose steering wheel wiring harness can wear down after repeated rubbing against a spring. The concern is that this can cause the airbag to set off inadvertently. So far, the company is aware of two injuries, but no accidents associated with this defect.
Approximately 188,000 2014 and 2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab pickup trucks have also been recalled to replace side-curtain airbags that are not compliant with federal regulations. These airbags are important as they help prevent rear passengers from being ejected from a vehicle during a crash. No injuries have been reported for this issue.
Another 190,000 vehicles have also been recalled to inspect the bracket welds in the steering wheel that have been shown to disconnect and affect steering capabilities. Select models of the Ram pickup truck and Chassis Cabs are affected by this problem and only one accident without injuries has been reported.
The automaker is already under strict scrutiny from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for its poor handling of a number of auto recalls earlier this year. In July, the NHTSA issued a record-breaking $105 million fine against Fiat Chrysler for its poor response to the problem.
This year has seen more auto recalls than any year previously between Takatas defective airbags, General Motors faulty ignition switch, and other recalls. The product liability lawyers at Phillips Law Group believe in holding these negligent manufacturers liable for their faulty products.

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
