FCA recalling almost 50,000 Pacifica vans due to seatbelt issue during sporty driving


If you stab your Chrysler minivan too fast and too furious, one of the second-row seat hits might unbuckle.

So Fiat Chrysler is recalling almost 50,000 Pacifica vans in the U.S. and Canada from the 2017 and 2018 copy years, all with an eight-passenger seating option.

The automaker says that during recreation driving, the centre buckle could hit the release button on the left clip and cause it to unlatch.

The company says it doesn’t know of any crashes or wrongs from the problem.

It says in documents posted Wednesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Security Administration that dealers will install a shorter second-row settle belt buckle in a recall that is expected to begin on Oct. 20.

Until puts are made, Fiat Chrysler is advising owners not to use the second-row centre fundament if other passengers are in that row.

The problem was discovered by Fiat Chrysler engineers who specialize in home safety restraints, the documents say.
