Chrysler has issued a recall for certain model year 2017 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicles (PHEV).

The tire placard label on the affected vehicles incorrectly lists the seating capacity as six occupants, rather than seven occupants—with a combined weight of 950 lbs., rather than 1,100 lbs. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims."

The incorrect tire label may cause customer confusion, potentially resulting in vehicle overloading. An overloaded vehicle increases the risk of a crash.

Approximately 100 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicles are included in this recall.

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled vehicles. These notifications are expected to begin on July 28, 2017. Local Chrysler dealers will then replace the tire placard label with a corrected one, free or charge.

For further information about this recall, owners can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.

Chrysler's reference number for this recall is T37.
