The NHTSA says Ford, Volvo and Chrysler are recalling a total of about 300,600 vehicles.
Ford gets off relatively light and is bringing in 422 Crown Vics and Mercury Grand Marquis to replace improperly secured windshields.

Volvo, however, will install new software to fix speed controls on more than 170,000 cars. Models affected include the 1999-2000 C70 coupes and convertibles, S60, S70, S80, V70, V70XC and XC70.

And just as Chrysler is getting rid of the Pacifica, it'll be seeing 127,928 of them coming back for new fuel pumps and powertrain control module software. The affected crossovers were built from Aug. 1 to Sept. 30, 2004. DaimlerChrysler is also sending Jeep Compass owners updates to their cars' manuals. NHTSA said the books omitted a required rollover warning. We imagine the folks over at TTAC could think of a few more warnings NHTSA could have included in the Compass manual.

      As far as I can see, nobody's yet confirmed the death of the Pacifica - only the work on its potential replacement has been scrapped.

      No wonder Pacificas fell apart so quickly -- Chrysler built 127,928 of them in just 60 days (Aug. - Sept. 2004)??? Don't think so! They may have built that many since model startup until Sept 2004.

      #1, relax. I knew there were going to be the typical domestic alarmists coming in here.

      No one's bashing anyone.

      Only 422? Well, at least Ford is getting it easy this time.

      Anyways, Pacificas would be great if they were priced a few thousand less. What also ruins the vehicle is the dash design and the fact it is slooowww.
