Owners of 2017 Chrysler Pacificas have complained of stalling, poor engine performance, hesitation, and transmission concerns. Owners may be entitled to refunds, compensation or replacement vehicles.
“A Chrysler Pacifica engine stall lawsuit alleges the minivans can die on the highways at any speed, and Fiat Chrysler (FCA US) has no idea how to fix the problems. The lawsuit includes all U.S. residents who purchased or leased 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica minivans equipped with 3.6-liter V6 engines and 9-speed 948TE automatic transmissions.
The Pacifica engine stall proposed class-action lawsuit was filed after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was petitioned by the Center for Auto Safety to investigate complaints about 2017 Chrysler Pacifica engines that stall while driving. The petition says minivan owners report that dealers try different repairs to solve the stalling problems, including replacing the transmission and voltage control modules or updating the software. In addition, technicians try replacing the fuel tanks and modules, replacing the electrical power distribution boxes and making sure no loose battery connections exist.
However, owners report the repairs don’t stop the engines from dying in the middle of the roads.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is reportedly an updated version of the Chrysler Town & Country, with a 9-speed automatic transmission and a “gearbox lifted from the Chrysler 200 sedan.”
