Additional information:

Among the 34 recalls the NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

Chrysler (“FCA US LLC”) has recalled an estimated 11,291 model year 2015-2017 RAM ProMaster City vehicles. The recalled vehicles have incorrect information on the tire placard including incorrect vehicle capacity weight, total number of occupants, tire pressure and/or “None” designation for the spare tire size when a full size spare tire is present. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

According to the NHTSA, the incorrect tire placard can cause the operator to exceed the vehicle’s weight capacity, or inflate the tires to an incorrect pressure, affecting vehicle handling, which can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Chrysler will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the incorrect tire placard with a corrected one, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 15, 2017. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is T62.
