Fiat Chrysler is recalling 47,927 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica minivans, all equipped with the eight-passenger seating option, because some seat belts might unlatch, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Under certain situations, the second-row center seating position seat belt buckle could cause the left outboard seat belt to become unlatched, NHTSA said. This poses a safety risk during a crash.
Chrysler dealers will install a shorter second-row seat belt buckle, free of charge, to address the problem. The recall is expected to begin Oct. 20.
Vehicle owners can reach Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) customer service at (800) 853-1403. The automaker’s number for this recall is T54.
