July 2, 2016

FCA US has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain aftermarket equipment capable of being installed in 2012 through 2016 model year RAM 1500/2500/3500 pickup trucks. Accordingly, a safety recall to address this equipment concern is being initiated effective June 29, 2016.

Mopar Canvas Seat Covers may have been installed on a customer's truck. When installed, the front canvas seat covers may impede the deployment of the seat thorax airbag, potentially resulting in delayed or improper deployment of the seat thorax airbag during a crash. A delayed, or improperly deployed, seat thorax airbag during a crash increases the risk of front seat occupant injury.

Owners that are known to FCA US to have purchased Mopar Canvas Seat Covers will be notified by mail about this recall and will be instructed to contact their authorized Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or RAM dealership right away to schedule a service appointment to have the front seat covers removed. If the customer prefers to remove the front seat covers themselves, they have been instructed to bring them, as well as their notification letter, to their dealer. Any front seat covers that are returned must be destroyed by the dealership.

Upon completion of the removal and disposal of the Mopar Canvas front seat covers canvas, dealership personnel should provide the customer with a copy of their recall repair order invoice and instruct the customer to contact the FCA US Recall Assistance Center at 1-800-853-1403 to request a full refund. Front canvas seat covers must be returned to an authorized CDJR dealership for disposal in order for a customer to receive a full refund.
