(Bloomberg) — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV is buying back some defective vehicles, giving $1,000 credits and handing out $100 gift cards to get more owners to come in for repairs after U.S. regulators said the company delayed previous safety efforts.

In unveiling details of previously announced recalls, the company said Chrysler, Dodge and Ram owners can opt to have the company repurchase their vehicle, according to a statement on Monday. Those recalls cover the 2009 Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango, as well as certain models of Ram 1500, 2500, 3500 and 4500 pickups from the 2008 through 2012 model years.

"Remedies are available, we are servicing vehicles and we encourage affected customers to contact their dealers," said Scott Kunselman, Fiat Chrysler's senior vice president — vehicle safety and regulatory compliance. "It is imperative that all vehicles implicated by recalls are inspected and serviced, as required."
