Feb. 6, 2019—Fiat Chrysler is recalling 882,000 pickup trucks worldwide in two new recalls to address steering and pedal issues, reported Reuters.

The automaker said it was recalling about 660,000 heavy-duty Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks from the 2013-17 model years, including 574,000 in the U.S.

Fiat Chrysler said it had reports of one injury and eight accidents possibly related to the issue.
