What Does the Recall Mean?
Fiat Chrysler has issued a recall and has offered to buy back hundreds of thousands of Ram pickup trucks from customers. The Ram pickups have been recalled for having defective steering parts that can cause the driver to lose control. Older Jeep models have fuel tanks located behind the rear axle, with little to shield them in a rear crash. This recall has not been issued on recent Ram models. If you are a Ram or Jeep owner and feel your vehicle is affected by this recall, we encourage you to reach out to our dealership for additional details.
What You Need to Know:
Owners with the Jeep recall may in lieu of having the recall repairs performed, trade in the vehicle, and receive a trade-in incentive of $1,000 over the fair-market value of the vehicle, the combined total of which will be credited toward the purchase of another FCA US vehicle or FCA US parts or service. This offer will be extended to current owners, regardless of position of ownership (including second owner, third owner, etc.).
