Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling approximately 224 2018 Ram ProMaster City compact vans because the gears within the hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering system may have a casting defect that can potentially fracture and lead to a loss of hydraulic steering fluid.

In the case of a hydraulic steering fluid leak, sudden steering effort may be required on the part of a driver, increasing the possibility of a crash.

To remedy the problem, Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the steering gear housing, replacing any affected rack-and-pinion assembly, at no cost to owners.

The recall begins April 25. Vehicle owners can reach FCA customer service at (800) 853-1403. FCA's reference number for this recall is U23.
