Chrysler Recalls 1.7K Pacifica Hybrids Over Loss of Propulsion

Order Reprints

June 14, 2017—Following a handful of complaints addressed to both Chrysler and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the automaker decided to call back almost 1,700 minivans registered through June 9, according to Auto Evolution.

Chrysler estimates that 1,368 examples may be affected in the U.S., with the Canadian market accounting for an additional 309 minivans. The rear brake lines might have been crossed during the modification, which would cause the rear antilock brake system to be ineffective, increasing the risk of a crash.

The automaker isn’t aware of any injuries or accidents related to this problem. The affected customers were told that “certain diodes may stop functioning,” a condition that may lead to a sudden loss of propulsion.
