Summary:
      Chrysler "FCA US LLC" is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab trucks manufactured August 26, 2013, to August 8, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with side air bag inflatable curtains "SABIC" that may not fully overlap the C-pillars in the event of a vehicle crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 226, "Ejection Mitigation."
Consequence:
      In the event of a vehicle crash, if a SABIC does not inflate as intended, there is an increased risk of injury to the rear seat occupant.
Remedy:
      Chrysler will notify owners, dealers will inspect the right and left side air bag inflatable curtains "SABIC" for proper orientation and a foil patch will be installed on both sides of the headliner. One or both of the air bag inflatable curtains "SABIC" will be replaced if necessary. The recall began on October 7, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R47.
