Defective seat belt buckles prompt recall of 48K Chrysler Pacifica vehicles

By Susan Engstrom

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) has recalled around 47,927 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica vehicles equipped with the 8-passenger seating option. In certain passenger seating and vehicle situations, the second-row center seating position seat belt buckle could cause the left outboard seat belt to become unlatched. The company cautions that inadvertent unlatching of the left outboard seat belt can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash (NHTSA Recall Notice, No. 17V542, Report receipt date: August 31, 2017).

Remedy. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a shorter second-row seat belt buckle, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 20, 2017.

Contact information. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is T54. Owners also may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Companies: Chrysler (FCA US LLC).
