Additional information:

Among the 15 recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Chrysler (“FCA US” LLC) has recalled an estimated 3,460 model year 2018 RAM ProMaster City vehicles. The Tire Placards on these vehicles may indicate the incorrect total number of occupants allowed. 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, if the tire placard indicates an incorrect seating capacity, the operator may overload the vehicle, which can cause tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Chrysler will notify registered owners, and dealers will install a corrected tire placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 13, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is U17.
