Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling approximately 3,460 2018 Ram ProMaster City compact vans because the tire placards may provide misinformation regarding seating capacity.

This scenario could lead to an operator overloading the vehicle with more occupants than are safely allowed, which can cause tire failure and increase the risk of a crash.

To fix the problem, Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected tire placard at no cost to vehicle owners. The recall is expected to begin April 13. Owners can reach FCA customer service at (800) 853-1403. FCA's reference number for this recall is U17.
