Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV stated on Tuesday it would recall 882,000 pickup trucks globally in two new recalls to address issues with steering and pedal.

The automaker stated it was recalling about 660,000 heavy duty Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks from the 2013 through 2017 model years, consisting of 574,000 in the United States, as drivers could possibly face steering loss.

A nut could come loose and avoid drivers from being able to steer the automobile, Fiat Chrysler stated, adding it was aware of reports of one injury and eight accidents possibly associated with the issue.

The company is also going to recall 222,000 2019 Ram 1500 pickup trucks globally to better secure brake pedals while the vehicles’ adjustable-pedal feature is being used.

The brake pedal could get detached if drivers move pedals to the rear-most position, the company stated. That could be harmful if trucks are taking a trip at highway speeds.

In the previous month, Fiat Chrysler recalled about 180,000 2019 Ram 1500 pickups to tighten a fastener linked to reports of power-steering loss. Fiat Chrysler stated the issue could result in steering problems.
