Ram Recalls 266,000 Trucks Over Airbag Issue

The Stellantis Group is voluntarily recalling some 266,000 pickup trucks due to a problem with the side air bag inflators. During the manufacturing process, moisture may have entered the inflators.

This could cause them to rupture and cause debris to be ejected into the passenger compartment, even without a collision. This is reminiscent of the problem with Takata cushions.

The breakdown of affected models reads: 212,373 vehicles in the United States, 49,334 in Canada and 4,540 in Mexico. The supplier responsible for these airbags says it was aware of a rupture, but reports that it did not cause any injuries., 100% online, shop for your next car, buy online and get it delivered to you anywhere in Quebec!
Stellantis said it will let owners know when they can have their vehicle repaired for free. The operation consists of simply replacing  the side cushion.

Affected models are from model years 2015 to 2020. These are the Ram 1500 Classic, as well as pickup and chassis cab versions of the Ram 2500 and 3500. The current generation of Ram pickups, released for the 2019 model year, is not affected.
