This recall relates to the Ram truck and Dodge SUV vehicle lines that pose a danger to the public. Specifically, these vehicles include faulty steering components that may cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles.
Although more than 280,000 of the 580,000 recalled vehicles have been repaired, Fiat Chrysler is still being held liable for the repair of all the vehicles included the recall.
The NHTSA has not only ordered Fiat Chrysler to buy back all the RAM trucks and Dodge SUVs that were made during the years of 2008 through 2012, but the automaker must also pay $105 million in civil penalties. Although the total cost has not been disclosed, the number of vehicles that have yet to be repaired indicates a significant sum of money that must be paid out since the automaker will buy the vehicles back close to the original sale price.
