2017 Chrysler Pacifica. CONSUMER WRITES IN REGARDS TO DEFECTIVE CRUISE CONTROL FEATURE. *LD THE CONSUMER STATED THE FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM WAS INOPERABLE. *JS
Forward collision avoidance system came to a complete stop at a check point proceeded forward when told to and with in 20-30 feet the warning system went off and vehicle came to an abrupt stop for no reason. Nothing in front of the vehicle at all. Similar situations have happened but there were vehicles parked on the side of the road as you go into a turn, but the vehicle never actually braked for those.
MY NEW Pacifica IS EQUIPPED FOR THE FORWARD COLLISION WARNING SYSTEM. THIS IS ONE OF THE BIG REASONS I CHANGED TO THIS EXACT VAN. WELL, IT DOESN'T WORK. I HAVE TRIED TO GET IT TO ENGAGE, NO WARNINGS, NO BRAKING, NO ANYTHING. I HAVE HAD IT IN THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY CLAIM THEY TRIED IT AND IT WORKED BUT THE SERVICE GUY REFUSED TO DO IT AGAIN BECAUSE IT WASN'T SAFE. UMMM, ISN'T THAT THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF IT? IT IS SET TO THE FARTHEST DISTANCE SETTING AND NOT WORKING. I HAVE HAD TO SLAM ON THE BRAKES WHEN TESTING IT, SO KNOW THAT IT IS NOT WORKING. THE DEALER IS GIVING ME THE RUN AROUND BUT I HAVE READ THAT MANY OTHERS HAVE THE SAME ISSUE. THIS NEEDS TO WORK! I PAID EXTRA FOR THIS PACKAGE AND AM VERY DISAPPOINTED. A NEW 45000 VAN THAT DOESN'T DO WHAT IT IS SUPPOSE TO IS RIDICULOUS.
Front collision warning and brakes did not engage when this safety mechanism has been functioning in the past. We were driving on the freeway in traffic when the truck ahead of us braked suddenly. Our pacifica rear-ended this vehicle at about 25-30mph. No audible or visual front collision warning occurred and the automated emergency braking system did not engage.
