Update: RAM Mirror Glass Recalled
Chrysler is recalling RAM 1500 and 2500 pickup trucks from the model year 2020 which were sold with driver-side mirror glass that can detach from the backing plate and no longer provide a reflective surface. "Missing driver-side mirror glass reduces visibility and increases the risk of a crash," NHTSA said. This recall began on November 5, 2020.

What's the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2020 RAM 1500 pickup trucks
- 2020 RAM Promaster vans
These vehicles may have an improperly crimped diffuser in the side curtain airbag which may result in the diffuser detaching from the inflator during airbag deployment, NHTSA said.
If the diffuser detaches from the inflator during a crash, the faulty airbag may not inflate properly, increasing the risk of injury.
Chrysler is notifying owners and dealers will replace the side curtain airbag assemblies, free of charge.
This recall began on August 14, 2020.
