Another 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Class Action filed regarding stalling
I just noticed that I wrote about the Chrysler Pacifica four times, namely:
- A recall regarding the seat belts
- NHTSA preliminary investigation into stalling
- Class action lawsuit filed regarding transmission issues
- Another recall regarding stalling, issued after that last class action
And now an entirely different class action lawsuit has been filed by a firm in Florida alleging "the engines stall without warning."
Per Car Complaints:
The plaintiff claims more than 160,000 model year 2017 Pacifica drivers and their passengers are unaware they are traveling in a minivan that can suddenly lose all engine power while driving at any speed. Based on this, the plaintiff says the engine problems cause serious safety hazards to all on the roads.
The lawsuit alleges the automaker has concealed the engine defects and even when dealers make repairs, the parts are replaced with the same defective parts that caused the engine problems in the first place.
The automaker said the engine control modules can misinterpret the operating status of the engines and cause them to stall. Dealers have been told to update the engine control software to allegedly fix the problem.
The Chrysler Pacifica engine problems lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida - Barbara Vaughn et al., v. FCA US LLC.
