Vehicles Affected: Approximately 65 model-year 2018 Chrysler Pacifica minivans
The Problem: In one recall, the front-axle half-shafts may have been incorrectly assembled, preventing the shaft from being properly secured to the constant-velocity joint. If the axle shaft disengages from the CV joint, the minivan will have a loss of drive or allow the vehicle to move while in the Park position, increasing the risk of a crash.
In the second recall, a component in the transmission may not have been welded properly, possibly causing the transmission to not transmit engine power to the wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: For the first recall, dealers will replace the left or right half-shaft assembly; for the second, dealers will replace the transmission. Both repairs will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Chrysler parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Sept. 14. 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.
