The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened its dreaded book on Chrysler's Pacifica.

After investigating the Nissan Murano for gas tanks punctured from road detritus (which resulted in a recall of more than 200,000 examples), NHTSA turned its gaze to similar vehicles, including 217,000 2004-2005 Pacificas. 18 complaints of punctures from customers to NHTSA, along with 120 similar 'field reports' has triggered a deeper investigation, though there is no word yet on a recall.

In other news, NHTSA will revisit an existing 2002-2003 Nissan Altima recall regarding faulty engine sensors. The agency plans to review new complaints which could result in a renewed, larger recall.
