FCA Recalls Pacifica Hybrid Minivans Over Fire Risk

2020 chrysler pacifica hybrid hunt chrysler


The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has become an extremely popular minivan in the last couple of years due to its spacious interior and low fuel consumption ratings. Recently, however, Chrysler has been made aware of a potential problem with some of the batteries inside of the vehicle catching on fire. For this reason, certain models of the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan have been recalled.


This recall will affect approximately 27,643 minivans that were manufactured between 2017 and 2020. This recall is only in reference to the hybrid Pacifica and does not affect all gas-powered models.


Chrysler has found that the connection to the vehicle's 12-volt battery that sits underneath the vehicle has been known to catch fire. So far, there are no reports of a fire risk from the battery that powers the hybrid system. It is only the smaller batter that helps to power the vehicle's accessories that may pose a fire risk.


Chrysler has reported that there have been a few confirmed fires from the 12-volt battery and there has been at least one reported injury from the fire.


Chrysler will be sending a letter to owners who have a Pacifica that may be at risk. If you feel that your Pacifica may be one that has been recalled, you can contact your dealer and ask the service department to check the battery connection for any corrosion or breakage.


If you have received a letter stating that your car may be affected by this recall, it is important that you not park your minivan inside of a garage or near other vehicles. Also, it is recommended that you not spill any liquids on the floorboard of the second-row seats.


If you have any questions about your Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid or you would like to learn more about the recall, please feel free to contact us today.
