Safety Recall: S44 / NHTSA 16V-461 Transaxle Oil Pump


August 1, 2016

FCA has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2015 and 2016 model year Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Journey and RAM ProMaster vehicles.

The transaxle oil pump in your vehicle may experience a loss of hydraulic oil pressure due to an improperly manufactured transaxle oil pump.  A loss of transaxle hydraulic oil pressure while driving will result in a loss of motive power and could cause a crash without warning.  

FCA intends to repair your vehicle free of charge (parts and labor).  However, the parts required to provide a permanent remedy for this condition are currently not available.  FCA is making every effort to obtain these parts as quickly as possible.  FCA will contact you again by mail, with a follow-up recall notice, when the remedy parts are available.
