Durango, Pacifica recalls

by David Zatz on

FCA US is recalling a very small number of 2017 Dodge Durangos because the rear axle half-shafts are too short; the fix is to replace both half-shafts, to avoid losing power unexpectedly.  The issue is a single pallet of parts built incorrectly at the supplier.

The recall seems to cover just eight rear-wheel-drive Durangos, four of which have been caught already; all were made between May 25 and June 2.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivans

The 2017-18 Pacifica recall covers only minivans with eight passenger seating — around 50,000 of them. In some situations, the second-row, center seat buckle could cause the left seat to become unlatched. The fix is to install a shorter buckle, under recall T54, starting in October. Vehicles built after August 24, 2017, have the new buckle already.

The issue arose during internal safety testing in May, and was replicated on July 31. There do not appear to have been any reported incidents from customers.
