Model year 2017 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicles recalled

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling 100 model year 2017 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicles (PHEV).

The tire placard on the recalled vehicles incorrectly lists the seating capacity as six occupants rather then seven, with a combined weight of 950lbs rather than 1,100lbs.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

Chrysler has been quick to hype its 2017 Pacifica Hybrid — a plug-in hybrid minivan that gets 84 miles per gallon equivalent. But the hype train has to make a quick stop at Recall Station.
Fiat Chrysler has issued a voluntary recall for all the Pacifica Hybrids — since it’s a new car, this amounts to just 1,368 vehicles in the US and 309 in Canada, for a total of 1,677. As InsideEVs notes, the Pacifica Hybrid started production in November, but deliveries didn’t really take place until this spring because of various factors…

FCA recalls 1.25 million trucks concerning software error

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) stated on Friday it is going to recall over 1.25 million pickup worldwide to deal with a software error connected to reports of one crash death and 2 injuries.

The incorrect code might temporarily disable the side air bag and deployment seat of belt pretensioners – which decrease safety belt slack during impacts – during an automobile rollover stimulated by a substantial underbody effect, such as striking onroad debris or driving off-road, the Italian-American automaker stated.

The company will reprogram computer system modules in the affected automobiles to address this error…

Chrysler recalls some cars for loose bolts

Fiat Chrysler says it is recalling some Chrysler cars because driveshaft bolts can come loose on all-wheel drive models, increasing the risk of a crash.

2009 Dodge Durango And Chrysler Aspen, 2010 Ram 3500 Chassis Cab Recalled Over Front Airbag Inflator

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling certain units of the Dodge Durango, Chrysler Aspen, and Ram 3500 Chassis Cab over an issue with the vehicle’s front airbag inflator that could cause serious injury or death.

The hazards: in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver’s front airbag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants, resulting in serious injury or death…
