In December 2017, the automaker recalled an estimated 1.46 million trucks in the US spanning the 2009-17 model years due to BTSI overheating. FCA also reminds customers to use their parking brakes whenever the vehicle is stopped and to follow the recommended operating instructions found in the owner's manual. Seven injuries were highlighted by the company as potentially related to the issue at the time of the recall.
