Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Fires Prompt Recall
The Lyon Firm is investigating fires and explosions linked to recalled Chrysler Pacifica minivans. Minivan owners have reported the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan catching on fire spontaneously, leading to serious damage and potential injury.
Back in 2018, Fiat Chrysler recalled more than 10,000 Pacifica hybrid vans due to a fire potential. In 2020, they recalled another 25,000 Pacifica vans for a separate issue, but with the same terrifying result.
The first Chrysler Pacifica recall, affecting 2017 and 2018 Hybrids, was for unburned fuel that was pumped into the catalytic converter with a potential to ignite.
The next Chrysler Pacifca minivan recall was for the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid due to bad connections to the 12-volt battery. The total number recalled is 27,634 Pacifica vans.
Chrysler hybrid minivan owners are urged to visit a dealer for inspection or possible repairs. Fiat Chrysler began advising car owners not to park the Pacifica van in enclosed structures or by other vehicles.
Obviously, the potential for Chrysler vans to ignite is rather concerning, and an ongoing safety issue with some affected vehicles still on the road. Owners can enter the van’s VIN numbers into the Fiat Chrysler recall site to determine if a specific Pacifica van is affected.
