2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 10,000 model-year 2017-18 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid plug-in hybrid minivans

The Problem: After the vehicle has been operating in PHEV propulsion mode, the gas-fueled engine may not restart properly, resulting in unburned fuel entering the exhaust catalyst. This could result in a loss of power, increasing the risk of a crash, or the unburned fuel in the catalyst may ignite, increasing the risk of a fire.

The Fix: Dealers will update the powertrain controller module software, and inspect and replace the catalytic converter, as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Chrysler manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Dec. 8. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
