Fiat Chrysler issues Pacifica minivan seat belt recall.

The AP (9/20) reports that driving a Fiat Chrysler Pacifica minivan too aggressively may cause a second-row seat belt to unbuckle. The company “is recalling almost 50,000 Pacifica vans in the U.S. and Canada from the 2017 and 2018 model years, all with an eight-passenger seating option.” The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration “said in documents posted Wednesday...that dealers will install a shorter second-row seat belt buckle in a recall that’s expected to begin on Oct. 20.” Company engineers specialized in interior safety restraints discovered the issue. Fox Business (9/20, 741K) reports the company advised not using the second-row’s center seat when other passengers are seated in the same row, until repairs are made.
