Vehicle owners want Chrysler to issue Chrysler Pacifica recalls and reimburse owners for serious 2004 and 2005 Chrysler Pacifica problems involving rusty and corroded engine cradles that can cause the engine to drop out of the car.
In November 2010, Chrysler issued an extended warranty to 2004 and 2005 Pacifica vehicle owners and explained that they may experience the car shaking or vibrating. Two years later, Chrysler issued an updated bulletin saying it would only cover repairs for Chrysler Pacifica vehicles made between February 23 and March 31, 2004.
Drivers who experienced Chrysler Pacifica problems involving engine cradle perforation or corrosion in vehicles manufactured during that period would likely be eligible for compensation, but thousands of other 2004 and 2005 Chrysler Pacifica models could be at risk for engine cradle rust.
In the event of a Chrysler Pacifica recall, the manufacturer would assume responsibility to fix the engine cradle problem. Without a Chrysler Pacifica recall, however, the financial burden of fixing the problem will be forced onto the vehicle owners.
Chrysler Pacifica owners who experienced engine corrosion may be able to seek compensation for related costs. If you had to pay out-of-pocket to fix your Chrysler Pacifica engine problems, contact a car defect lawyer to seek compensation from Chrysler.
