SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Fiat Chrysler has just issued its second major recall this year, this time for more than 182,000 pickup trucks around the world.

The reason for the recall is an issue with battery fasteners that were not secured properly, leaving the trucks susceptible to power steering failure. Most affected 2019 Ram 1500s are in the U.S. or Canada, and one-third are still sitting on dealership lots.

According to CBS News, the automotive company said there have been no reports of crashes or injuries so far.

Just over two weeks ago, the automaker announced a separate recall that involved 1.6 million cars with faulty airbags made by manufacturer Takata. The Takata airbag recalls, which also affected major automakers like Ford and Honda, were some of the biggest in U.S. history.

Fiat Chrysler hasn't set a date for the start of the current recall, but U.S. law says it has to begin within 60 days.
