Additional information:

Among the 33 recalls the NHTSA has announced this May comes news of the following:

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) has recalled an estimated 1,021,279 model year 2013-2016 Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and 2014-2016 Ram 3500 Vehicles. Certain driving conditions, such as driving off-road or debris striking the vehicle may cause the roll rate sensor to trigger a fault within the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). If this fault occurs, the rollover side curtain air bag and the seat belt pretensioner will be disabled from deploying.

According to the NHTSA, if the rollover side curtain air bags and seat belt pretensioners are disabled, there is an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants in the event of a crash that necessitates activation of these safety systems.
