A consumer-advocacy group is calling on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to investigate complaints of stalling in 2017 Chrysler Pacificas and order a recall of 150,000 of the vehicles.

The nonprofit Center for Auto Safety issued a news release Monday saying more than 50 people have reported that their Pacifica minivans have stalled without warning and said the center has filed a petition with NHTSA requesting the recall.

“Stalling is a dangerous defect, and has repeatedly led to tragedy,” Jason Levine, the center's executive director, said in a news release. “The danger goes beyond what happens to families in the stalled minivan during the loss of power, as drivers of disabled vehicles are often hit and killed by other cars after they have pulled over to the side of the road. Chrysler needs to recall these vehicles, provide alternatives for owners in the meantime, and figure out how to fix the problem.”


I didn't know Chrysler dropped its town and country model but seems reasonable. It also stopped making its grand caravan model as well
