I loved my Used 2004 Pacific being a mother of two it has been great with the comfort & DVD player. I had it for 2 years. My only complaint is it has bottom out on me a few times on the front end. The crash rates are amazing. I got hit head on with my 2 kids in the car totaled my car but we walk out with just a few bumps. I loved my Pacifica & would 100% buy one again!

So I bought my pacifica in May 2014 at a dealership in Temecula, CA saw the carfax car seemed great except it was from Missouri. Well thats should have told me something there but I didn't know. Now I have replaced the front struts 4 times since May replaced the axles twice emissions problems then motor mounts went out ALL 4, This is the disaster part, My Sub-Frame is completely Rusted the rear end can not be aligned until I replace the alignment parts because they are so rusted. Got a flat tire and went to crank my car up with the stock jack and it went right thru the driver side floorboard. I don;t know what to do anymore I paid way over the price for everything sale 6k repairs 4k

I bought my Pacifica used in January 2012. I had not had any real problems with my Pacifica until January 2013. I ended up having a preemie who was hospitalized an hour away from where I lived. After a late night visit to the hospital my steering wheel locked up on the interstate going 75mph on my way back home. I was able to get the car off to the side of the interstate right before it completely died on me. Got the car towed home, then towed to a mechanic who said it was multiple problems. We put in a new fuse box But still come not get the car running. ($1,500 spent) It seemed to be running then as soon as we drove it home it would die again. Found it to be a lose wire in the door!

Nice ride~

I bought my Pacifica 2004 brand new. It's a beautiful vehicle and the ride is unbelievably comfortable. If you are driving this vehicle and you don't feel its comfortable then maybe you have cheap tires because my vehicle glides along the freeway smoothly. I absolutely love this vehicle. Sure its has some quirks, front end makes a noise when braking and I've read reviews on this and many have the same issue but doesn''t effect proformance at all. Gas mileage sucks but I knew this when I bought it as I read reviews first. It seats 6 but the rear is mainly for children and their is no cargo space with full load so you would need luggage rack. I've had it 8 yrs. 106,000 miles

Would never buy again!

I purchased this vehicle used just a couple months ago. Got to admit it's pretty to look at but if you need something comfy to ride in this is not it!!! Unfortunately, I didn't drive it long enough for the test drive otherwise I would have noticed it quicker and moved on. The shifting is not smooth, for being a touring model it sure doesn't feel like it. Gas mileage is horrible, 15mpg in town and less than 20 on the highway. I got rid of it!!!!

i saw it drove it fell in love, bought it used, barely drove it and stuff started breaking, left my family stranded, front axle broke n wheels did a spllit... cost over 500 just for part used from junkyard, bushings gone, suspensions gone, heat n ac broke, bottoms out everywhere... replacement 17" tires 125 each, 14.8 miles/gallon, broken eexhaust at flex pipe burns oil.... had 2 years bad break downs... gas gauge suddenly went from 1/2 tank to empty, light came on, couldnt get all the way off the interstate so had too abndon car n walk my 2 year old 11 and 15 yr olds... picked up along way, called n got gas n left, no warning at all..... not worth hassles.... parts even used too much...

Good idea, bad implementation.

Not the most comfortable car to drive. Feels like a boat and I'm afraid of hitting everything when I'm in the city. Front suspension seems a bit loose so every time we had to stop quick, the front would take a deep dive and when it went over a driveway that was higher then the road it would bottom out at 12 mph, which might be why the bearing plates broke (something our mechanic told us was common in them). Learning transmission never up shifted when it should have and loved to rev up to the red before it would finally shift. Needs plus gas for power and fuel economy. For a car thats supposed to be a town car and SUV I think Chrysler failed to make a car thats good at being either.

Can last forever...

I feel very qualified to write a review on the Pacifica in that I've had my 2004 model since April 2003 and have amassed over 277,000 miles on it. I've been fairly consistent with routine maintenance and have had a few more significant repairs, but nothing to indicate that the vehicle can't make it to 300,000 miles. It's been relatively fun to drive, not exciting, but fun. Definitely luxurious and comfortable. Of course, the 3rd row doesn't work well for adults, but the versatility of the car with the fold down seats makes it an excellent choice for a luxury/practical/family car. If you take care of this car, it will take car of you...no regrets.

Glad I bought it

Bought when 1 year old with 15k miles. Car had some initial warranty work done on it (tie rod end, rear transaxle leak, etc.) Bought extended warranty because of the repairs, but has been solid ever since. Under-powered for sure but a great hwy cruiser. Large, comfortable, well appointed cabin for me (I'm 6'4" 260 so a bit of extra interior room is appreciated.) Wife and kids have plenty of room and plenty of creature comforts. MPG is so-so at 17-18 around town but 23-24 on highway. It is my daily driver and I have been very pleased with it over the last 5.5 years. Given the state of affairs at Chrysler I am not sure I would buy another Chrysler, but this C-Pac has been great.

Hi. Just wanted to let you know that your pacifica rated excellent with us. This past summer my husband and myself took a trip from New Hampshire to Colorado and back. I'm handicapped due to problems with my liver and other health problems so we weren't sure if I could make the trip or not. My husband put both rows of the seats down and made a bed for me when I got tired or was in pain. The pacifica performed well. We had no problems at all with the car and were able to make side trips to see the presidents and I was able to rest anytime I needed to. Thank you again for making a car flexible for us to use. Sincerely Mrs. E. Brubaker

The salesman touted the Mercedes Benz connection. Though I don't own a Mercedes, I would not compare the quality of this auto with a Mercedes - far from it. Generally it has a low quality feel. Very low power (even when new) from a 6 cylinder reported to be 250 hp plus really poor mileage (15 mpg). Then add stupid problems that are quality related such as an oil pan made of "soft aluminum" whose drain plug is easily stripped ($700 repair), air conditioner failure, lots of batteries (four so far), heater fan failure, rocker panel made of breakable plastic. In comparison, my Acura tl with equal miles (90k) drives like the day I purchased it and has required no repairs

It is a shame they stopped making it

Bought the car with 25,000. It now has 66,000. Still have the original brakes. My local mechanic says I should be good for about another 10,0000. Yes, I have had the same repeated problems with the suspension. However, I bought an extended warranty ( 6 years/100,000 miles), through my credit union with no deductible. The only thing I have paid for, outside of routine maintenance is the Wisconsin tax on the bill. I replaced the tires at 45,000.

I bought this car brand spanking new in July of 2004. I fell in love with it right off the get, did research for over a year and still came back to this one. It has 93,000 miles on it, I drive a lot, beautiful ride and comfort. Had a few problems, same as some noise and squeaking and clunk front end. Original brakes had them checked several times. So far so good, right now having issue with stalling, surging, ran codes and found nothing so far so keep"n fingers crossed. But all in all I love it. Going on a long trip this vehicle is like riding on a cloud, such comfort. I knew when I bought it about the gas so I can't complain on that. Its held up nicely so far. Also have a sebring. 2001

I have owned dozens of cars and rented dozens more. The 2004 Chrysler Pacifica is the best car I have ever owned or driven. It looks great, drives great and has a lot of Mercedes in it. It truly is an elegant car and I wouldn't do a thing to change it. Some of the features, like the second seat CD player are wasted on me since we have no children but I'm sure it will help the resale value. However, I cannot imagine ever wanting to get rid of this ride.My wife has a serious back problem and we test drove 8-10 vehicles looking for seating that would be comfortable for her. This car was head and shoulders above the others.

I've read the other reviews and I agree with the car having blind sides. We solved it with little oval mirrors stuck on sideview mirrors. We have actually done this to every car we've owned. My wifes pacifica has the electronic rear view mirror. If I get my own pacifica I will change that to a conventional day/night mirror.It is hard to see at night when backing up,esp with tinted windows.I would probably install back up camera. I don't think they are that costly anymore.I would love to have an Escalade or a Navigator but they are lousy on gas. The Pacifica is at least 6 mpg better and has the room I need for my 2 very large dogs.

This vehicle caught our eye immediately on the lot. We purchased it for the sole purpose of interior space and safety rating. With a very high safety rating and 3 rows of seats, this met our criteria. After about 2 years of enjoying the car in the summer time, we also came to the conclusion that we never should have purchased a non-AWD vehicle in Colorado Springs. This vehicle handles terribly on the snow. We had to buy winter tires just to get around. After 3 years, the problems started. Control Arm, in-dash computer, fuel gauge, struts, mounts, sway bar, etc.

How can a modern car be this bad?

I have had many many cars. All types, foreign and domestic, sports cars and SUVs. I have never had so many things go wrong on a car. When I bought my Pacifica, I thought it would be the perfect blend between ability to carry my family and clients, tow a boat and not have the fuel consumption of my 5.7 liter tundra. Boy was I wrong. The fuel mileage is actually worse (15.4 mix city/hwy), I have so far needed to replace both motor mounts (by the way when I bought it it had 36k miles. Now 42k), the driver's seat (because it moves just enough to annoy the hell out of you when you leave a light), there is the well documented creak in the front end, periodically there is a clunk when

At first great auto. After owning for 2 years the black roof trim attachment points broke on both sides, dash panel in front of dash cracked and now the worst transmission failure. I never had a trans failure in any one of my cars. 2 Olds 442, 1 69 Hurst/Olds, 1972 Volvo 242, 2 Volvo 740 GLE, Dodge W250 Cummins Diesel, trans in it is weak. Borge Warner should have done a far better job. The Pacifica is in my words is not an dependable vehicle. Intake manifold is open at both ends, this allows mice to live between the V of the engine block, causing a chewing off the anti-knock sensor wire. Had it done, job performed by myself, not trusting ASE certified mechanics and the shop/dealer.

We got a Chrysler Pacifica a couple of weeks ago. When the salesman showed it to us, I thought, what the hell is a pacifca. it had a hundred and seven thousand miles on it so we got the extended warranty.The reason we got another car is because my pathfinder is in the shop with radiator/transmission problems. I hope we have better luck with this car. So far t has been a very good experience. I hope it will continue to be so.

I purchased my first Pacifica in the summer of 2004 and in two weeks time it had broken down, almost got me hit on the 4-lane, and was towed back to the dealership. I then got a slightly used Pacifica-same type, different color, and after about a year it started having engine lights come on for no reason, it had transmission lights flash constantly, then the skipping started after about 2 years. It has skipped and jumped, especially when the cruise is on ever since about 2007. Then just this last week, I was driving to work and the car just quit going down the road. The steering went out, it wouldn't do a thing. By the way,I have serviced it every 3,000 mi.

I LOVE my Pacifica!

I was shocked to hear when this car was being discontinued because I absolutely love it! However, I do wish it got better gas. I average about 18 mpg between highway/city. I have taken this on road trips around the country with my family and friends. My last one was last summer and was about 5,000 miles long. Nobody has EVER complained about comfort, but instead prefer to ride in my car because it IS so comfortable. I love the navigation in the dash though mine is currently not reliable. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I think the player gets dirty. In the 5 years I've owned it, I have had to replace the front window regulators once each.

Since 1970 we had 3 BMWs, 5 Mercedes & the Pacifica. Interior is a bit cheesey (only 1/2 leather seats), but it's a good car for the money. We bought ours in January 04 @ $7000 below sticker. Only problems were a leaking motor mount & a blown EGR, both fixed under warranty. No strange noises but we are on our 3rd battery. My wife has a bad back & the Pacifica is one of the few cars she can travel in comfortably. Actually prefers it to our 2000 S class Mercedes for trips because of the extra room & storage.(but she isn't driving) We mostly use our car for traveling & just replaced the original tires at 54,000 miles. It gets 17/26 mpg. I Would buy another but they discontinued them.

I purchased this vehicle in 2006. It had 28,000 miles and now 56,000. There have been a few issues, but all were covered by the extended warranty I purchased from the C.U. where I secured the financing. I am 62 years old. This is the 1st car that I have owned where you actually look forward to a lengthy trip. The ride and seating are simply incredible. You will feel as fresh when it begins as when you arrive at your destination. Maybe it is the Mercedes platform and engineering. Bottom line, I will stack it up to any other crossover. It will win, hands down.

Nice crossover!

Take my review with a grain of salt if you will as we have only owned our Pacifica a few short weeks. We bought it used with a hair over 40000 miles and only have a couple thousand more on it, but has not had one problem thus far like a lot of reviewers have mentioned. (Knock on wood, as that is why we purchased this vehicle as our old Lumina was nickle and diming us to death!) I believe we got a good one as it is mint! No scratches, dents....nothing! Even put on new OEM Michelins, which was a nice touch from the dealership. Only got the power- train warranty to 100,000 miles, so hoping we don't run into the tire-rod ends or control arm problem. Drives perfect for my wife and kids!

I bought this car 6 years ago and now have 200,000 miles. I have not spent any money except for common maintenance items. The salesman told me "this is just like a Mercedes under the hood" because of their relationship then with Daimler-Benz. It must have been true ! I am giving this to my daughter & son-in-law .

My car is one of the first PACs made (I think manufacture date is 10/03) -- it is the 3.5L 4-spd. w/ AWD. One complaint is I average only 16 MPG (mostly city driving). But when taking all things into consideration, it is the best car I have ever owned -- from reliability, design, comfort, and usability standpoint. I have all the options, and feel that the telematics (DVD, NAV, Satellite radio, Bluetooth) are better integrated than on my wife's new Lexus IS250. Too bad the car was discontinued so soon!

Car required 20 000$ in service over 2 years. Its hard to remember all of the problems, I haven't had the car for two years now. I will give it a shot though, -tie rods three times, transfer case quit, heater quit ,glue on entire dash let go, steering rack, electric lift gate wouldn't work, tire pressure sensors never worked, computer in dash quit, ball joints twice in 50,000 km I owned the car for two years thank god I got rid of it, we literally couldn't keep it on the road. Simply the worst car I have ever owned. Will never buy a Dodge Chrysler again. Paid 45,000 car was worth 8000 two years later, awesome.

I do love my Pacifica, it has everything I could possibly need in a car with 2 children and a husband. I love the DVD player and the navagation and heated leather seats and 6 disk cd changer. The all wheel drive makes it awsome in the snow. I love the trunk space, I can fit a double stroller and my second stroller and still have room for my groceries, or we can empty it and go out for ice cream and sit on the edge of the back. It is reliable even thought it is in dire need of repair, needed brakes/rotars for over 8 months and it still stops for me, I have had many noises coming from the front end and now my power stearing is going. I need battery. already replaced muffler/tires. 88,000

Purchased this car with 50k miles on it. Since purchase is has been to the dealer for a total of about 3 weeks. We had to rebuild the first motor, then replace it 6 months later. Had to replace the intake manifold, motor mounts 3 separate times. If it can break it will. It now sits in a parking lot awaiting a tow due to it stalling while idling through the lot. Cant get rid of this thing because its a chrysler and its worthless to the dealerships, 9k dollars upside down in the loan due to lousy blue book value.

We have loved owning this vehicle since the day we bought it! I do not like driving in the snow/slush, but have felt very safe in the Pacifica AWD. It handles VERY VERY good in the snow! We've replaced the brakes once on it at about 60K miles. It does burn a little oil at times - but not too bad that it worries us. The headlights have gone out once on each side. Otherwise, there are no problems with it. We love how it handles & drives & would recommend it to anyone!

I got a good one

Bought car in Oct of 04 with 17k, now has 75k and still going. The only problems I've had, power seats went out about 4 years ago, but warranty took care of it. It does have a loud popping noise coming from front end, but they all seem to do that. Motor mounts are now shot, but the worst is that the dealer doesn't have any, so I've been waiting since April and they are still on back order. Other then that it's been great! Sturdy car, hit a median on the freeway in Cali going 70 mph and nothing happened, didn't even get a flat, just had to change the tie rod ends & rack, but that was my fault and warranty covered it. One more year and it's paid for. I hope it continues to hold up.

I too had to replace what seems to be the "defect" items on my 2004 Pacifica. The tie rods and the Fan Relay at roughly 60,000 miles. I bought mine certified in 2006 with 19k miles on it. I now have 69000 miles. For the amount of accomodation this car offers and all the high end ammenties I am glad I bought it. The pros by far outweigh the cons. I am a car dealer and I sell foreign cars for a living. They have yet to make a non luxury brand tourer with a ride quality and creature comforts as the pacifica. Toyota just put out their overpriced offering but I will pass and keep my Pacifica until the end. As for the creaking noise, I have learned to make peace with it as you may also have to.

I love my Pacifica!

My 2004 pacifica has nearly 150000 miles on it. It has plowed through ice and snow. It responds quickly in tight situations. I have had several vehicles over the course of my life, and this is by far the best I have ever had. I was so disappointed when they discontinued the model.

I purchased my Pacifica used in Feb 09 with less than 60K miles. It is a super comfortable and roomy car. I like the way it handles & love the captains seats in the 1st & 2nd row & that there are vents in every row. Less than 20 days later it needs a motor mount broke. Took it back for the repair to find the part is on forever back order. I found one due to my own persistance. It is now June (not even 4 months since I bought the car) and it needs ANOTHER new motor mount, new tie-rods, sway arm bushings, blah blah! I haven't had it 6 months and I am trading it in. It's too bad it has so many problems, I would love it! But I can't afford to rent a car every other month for weeks on end.

Still loving it!

Bought used in '06 w/46K - replaced brakes at 90K (1st time - $800) and just replaced relay for radiator fan ($160). Aside from klunky sound from front axel area car has been amazing. I drive a lot and love feeling safe & secure. Was ready to trade to newer model until read they were being discontinued.

This is simply the best car I've ever owned, and I've owned a broad spectrum of autos over 50 years of driving. Mine has been trouble free. I've just replaced the transmission oil cooler and had a brake job done at 49,000 miles, but that would be expected after years of trouble-free driving. I am still running on the original Michelins, but intend to get a set of new tires this year. My wife and I enjoy taking day trips in our Pacifica because we feel so safe and it is both quiet and comfortable with excellent road manners in all situations from gravel roads to freeways. The only issues are the 15 mpg around town and poor visibility due to the thick pillars. 25 MPG highway, though.

I never expected to write a review, but after the accident I am a #1 fan of this car. Say what you want about gas mileage, rear visibility, or repairs, this car is built like a tank. A driver ran a stop sign and hit me square on the left front driver's side. His car was a total loss, I had major (but fixable) damage to the fender, headlight, and bumper. The hood was undamaged due to the height of this vehicle. The car was still running even after a major impact and my young daughter and I got out without a scratch. I had reservations about driving such a heavy car when I only need to haul more than 4 people on an occasional basis, now I am a true believer in the 5-star safety rating!

But I love my vehicle!! It is so comfortable, sturdy, and solid. I love the look inside and out, and I have enjoyed the extras.

I used to love my pacifica until this last Nov. 08. The motor mounts were cracked and Chrysler was unable to provide new parts(which I would gladly pay for) to fix my car. I searched everywhere and was unable to find the parts. My Pacifica sat in my driveway for 5 months undriveable! Chrysler denied my repeated request for a rental car replacement. I called Chrysler customer service every week for updates as to when the part would be available. First I was told the part would be available in March of 09, then Feb., then March again, then April. I finally found a mechanic who got the part for me in mexico. I was told there are 2000 other Pacifica owners going through the same ordeal.

I like this car. It has done everything we needed it to do. My wife and I have three young kids and the car fits them and their car seats fine (one seat had to be taken out, though). It is much safer than any minivan out there. The handling/braking of the Pacifica is very good and definitely could factor into avoiding an accident.

I have finally found a new favorite car. I bought it used, with less than 100,000 miles and only one owner. It looks and feels nearly new. It handles well, with the basic outward size and feel as a large sedan, but the internal size is spacious and comfortable. Plenty of room for family and cargo. I truly love the style and comfort of this vehicle. It looks both classy and sporty. It is as comfortable as any luxury auto. And has the space of a mini van. I have found the perfect vehicle only to learn that 2008 will be its last year.

I bought this car against my better judgment. I did some research, and found most of the reviews to be negative. I've had to replace the blower module, both headlamps. The heater controls never seem to work right. It burns a quart of oil in between oil changes,and the front end makes all kinds of noises when turning. By far the worst car I've ever owned.

I've had my 2004 Pacifica for almost two years now & I am the 2nd owner. It rides *SO* smoothly (& we've had to take MANY road trips for work) and with my 8 month old son, I feel VERY safe. Only been to the mechanic once for a U joint--other than that, no problems at all. I have a base model, no GPS or DVD, & the 3rd row was a bit snug when me and my SIL sat back there once (and I'm 5'8" and she is 5'10") but my husband is 6'1" and is a SOLID 245 and has ROOM to stretch in the front two rows, and has great head room. With the side air bags, I don't worry about my baby as much on the road! If I won the lottery, I'd buy this car again.

Since then I have had to replace the inner and outer tie- rod ends, struts, axels, lower control arm, sway arm bushings on both front driver and passenger side. There still is a creaking noise in the front when you hit a bump. Mechanic has no clue what it is. Then I had a problem with the engine revving up when at stop sign the shutting off.

This car gives you much confidence on the road. It feels extremely solid , very smooth at highway speeds and brakes that are powerful. Never thought I would use the Auto/manual trans but a trip through the mountains of W Va. made me very happy we had it. Seating for 1st 2 rows is excellent, 3rd row is the penalty box. Accessories are over and above what we need. At 47,000 miles we have had 1 "fit and finish" issue with one of the roof rails (dealer fixed on the 3rd try) and the fuel gauge stopped working (1st try fix). We were rear ended by a VW Jetta. Jetta was totaled. Pacifica, just under $3,000 for the rear bumper, exhaust etc. This car is very safe. Would buy another

This has been one of the best cars I have owned. For an SUV, it rides like a dream on the Mercedes chassis. It has been extremely reliable. The only minor problem I had was the setback button for the top part of the seat would not work, but the mechanic fiddled with it and got it working. I still have the original brakes at 57k! My hubby had an LHS when they first came out; it was also one of his favorite cars, and he has since owned a Cadillac and two BMWs. I also owned a Chrysler van which had no problems either. If they made this in a hybrid, I would buy it again.

I usually keep a car no more than 18 months. I have kept this care for 5 years and have 120k miles. Transmission rebuilt at 110k is all. I have only two negative things to say. 1) there is a bad blind spot on right rear window exceedingly dangerous. You really need to watch it. 2) Chryslers just don't seem to keep their value and because of that, no more Chryslers. The Car is great and I would buy another if they were to keep making them and I could get the price down to pay for the depreciation problem.

I loved the car when I bought. It is definitely a safe car to drive, but it wreaks havoc in your wallet. Does anyone want unexplainable stalling? How about heat when the blower motor and resistor go out? Or the best of all experience shaking in the front of their car because you have to replace the outer tie rod and nut set? Don't forget about 10,000 miles later you have to replace the inner ones; one more thing don't forget to add a new set of tires about every two years. Suggestion invest in an extended warranty or get a second job.

The Pacifica has been ny favorite car ever. First and foremost, it is very safe with the airbacks and side curtains. My only complaint, which is my fault, is that if you leave the doors open for 45 minutes for a cleaning and don't remember to turn off the interior lights, you will run your battery down. The Pacifica has more interior lights than many cars. I was a bit nervous buying a first year model. However, I didn't ever experience any problems. I had to get use to the size of the car. It is bigger than it appears. Also,as a safety feature, the back of the uld recommend that a buyer install a rear view camera in order to see if small children are behind the car.

Needing a vehicle that seats 6, but not wanting a minivan or an SUV necessarily the Pacifica caught my eye. I love the clean lines and the luxurious ammenities in this car. It provides a very comfortable ride and is fairly responsive. The number of options for the price are amazing. Particularly love the DVD player, sound system, memory seats and heated seats. The only negative is that the engine is average at best for this year. It probably would have been OK if I hadn't drove an 07 with the 4.0L. With a budget in mind, we went with the options over the more powerful engine. This vehicle was a steal for the price!

I love to drive this wagon/suv. I bought it used it had 37,000 miles. I did have three experiences with the car stalling in about a weeks time(two after it sat outside in the cold and one on the highway), but it hasn't done it since. I also chalked it up to letting the gas mileage get below 30 miles in the tank before I filled it up.

Wish I had listened to Consumer Reports!

I thought I was getting a bargain but it got me. Since we bought it in Jan 05 I have replaced an axle, axle seals, oil pan, rear differential and now the transmission. When it runs its nice but now I wish I could get rid of it. Unfortunately the Pacifica loses value so quickly you are likely to be thousands in the hole the second you drive off the lot. Its very tempting to look at these used Pacifica as a bargain, but remember you are really gambling with this car. You may be the guy who gets lucky or you be the guy like me who has spent $6000+ in repairs in the last two years

We have owned this vehicle since it first came out in early 2003. It had always had some annoying suspension clunks on braking, and the dealer tightened something and that went away for a while. While on a trip down To San Diego with four people in the car, it had a connecting rod loosen and started making the expected clunk, clunk, getting louder as we neared the final resting place, a gas station. We had it towed back 75 miles to Irvine to the dealer. The vehilce was under extended warranty and had only 58,000 miles on it, was properly maintained at the dealer. Wouldn't do it again.

This car is so awesome! I need a minivan with our 3 small children, but I did not really want one. This vehicle drives like a Town Car. I could not believe how smooth of a ride it is. I don't know how I ever lived without the DVD system! It's very nice to have a separate sound system for the adults. The third row is still comfortable enough for long trips, and the third row cup holders are a nice touch. Others complain about the visibility, but you just need to be able to drive with mirrors. The navigation system is great. I can't wait to take a long trip now! Before, I would not have considered making a long trip with 3 small kids packed into a sedan.

Bought this car 30 months old with only 12k miles. Currently have 32k. Only replacement was front control arms, pretty common on Chryslers. Mileage improved a few months after installing K&N air filter. Gets better mielage when you keep your speed under 70 on the highway. You can actually achieve 24 mpg if you keep it at 60-65. Also running synthetic motor oil. Fabulous highway car....feels very solid. No problem pulling a pop-up camper, but make sure you buy the wiring harness from Chrysler. Always by OEM parts when it comes to electrical or you'll have issues down the road.

Well worth considering

For the features and luxury, very good value. Fairly reliable, never stranded. Biggest problem has been air pressure monitoring system - replaced 2x. In single car accident and no one hurt - very safe. Car repaired and like new.

We've had our Pacifica for just under 3 years (40,000 miles) and it has proven to be a great car. The ride is very comfortable, I could drive all day in this thing. The fold down seats allow for great cargo space and the 2nd row seats are very comfortable. 3rd row is a little cozy. We've had no problems mechanically thus far (knock on wood). The dual climate controls are great. My wife says she feels very safe in this big car. Wish we'd gotten the heated front seats for Minnesota winters. The AWD is great in snow. The only knock we have is the poor gas mileage. I wouldn't hesitate to recommed the Pacifica.

I drove my present vehicle until our family outgrew it. I was sick to part with my old truck, but had spent a couple years researching cars. I had decided a year in advance that the Pacifica would suit all my needs, without having test-driven it. I found my Pacifica on the first day of shopping, and bought it on the same day. The interior is beautiful, and there are so many extras. I am spoiled now. It is big enough for a family of 4-6, has extremely comfortable seating, but isn't too high off the ground for us short people. Seats are far apart so we don't have to hit elbows. Now I can afford a more expensive car, but will not part with my Pacifica!

I knew several negatives about the car prior to purchase, too many blind spots. The car has been okay but the service department have been terrible now there everything is wrong because they did not identify transmission problems at 14,000 miles when 1st complaint was submitted.

After 53,000 miles I'm still very pleased with my Pacifica. The only maintenance issue was loose spline bolts at 47,000 miles. It cost $100 to have the dealer tighten the bolts. My family of 4 took the vehicle on a 3,500 mile vacation that covered much of the eastern USA and Canada. The vehicle is one of the best road cars I've owned in the last 30 years. A 5'10" 200 lb adult can drive the car for 12 hours and not be sore. The middle row seats are just as comfortable as the front seats. The power is good out of the 3.5 liter FWD drive train as long as you use at least 89 octane fuel. That is what the owners manual recommends too. Fuel economy observed is 19 city/23 highway

I use the Pacifica for business, and it performs very well in all conditions. I have had to have clients in my car and then stop at Home Depot on the way home to pick up large items and the Pacifica handles both tasks equally as well. This is a fine lower priced alternative to the equivalent Lexus, Mercedes, and Audi entries in this class. The Pacifica has performed well in very bad road conditions - never leaving me stranded or unable to get where I need to be.

The Pacifica design was out in front and the first of it's kind. The style is great and by the looks of all the new 2007's every one in the industry thinks so too. The only real problem I had was the mileage. The first 42,000 miles the best mileage I could attain is 16 mpg. Then for some reason I started to get around 20. The car is built on the e class platform from Mercedes and the only real improvement I would request is a Mercedes diesel engine. I had the oil change regularly and had no service problems with my car. The mileage and the ratings of safe cars will determine if I buy another.

The only negative is poor sight in backup mode - you have to be really careful and take it slowly. Great car in the city and on the highway, not affected by high winds, stops on a dime, handling is very good. Gas mileage averages 20 MPG which is not bad for a very heavy vehicle.

The 2004 Pacifica AWD is a very nice vehicle overall, from the fantastic exterior design to the very spacious and comfortable interior. This vehicle has been very reliable and a pleasure to drive for the past two years. This vehicle could have been rated an excellent vehicle by me, if Chrysler would have improved the following areas: Increase engine power; add vision system to increase rear-view sight during parking; improve awful vanity mirror lighting; add durable cover to top of rear bumper to protect it from cargo damage; Add identical upgraded 19-inch rim option for spare tire; add video screen to dash for front passenger; improved difficult 2nd row seating access to 3rd row seating.

I was not too happy with long list of recall items on the website for the 2004 models, so I searched other types of vehicles and noted they too had a long list. I had the car fully check before I made a final commitment. And after purchasing the Pacifica, I really love it. It's fun to drive, and doesn't feel like a mini van. There is lots of run for the kids, I'm tall and both my sons are tall. It's good on gas, and look really nice. I'm totally happy.

Car seems to be okay thus far in our ownership. We have every single option that came with the '04 pac awd. Even the tow package. We've put this through the wringer so far on trips and its held up pretty well. I am meticulous though with oil changes (every 2K miles), detailing the car whenever possible, constant fluid checks and undercarage checks. Already bought a new set of tires too. Basically I'm treating it like our Audi that requires vigilant maintenance in order to keep it tip top. I think the Pac will serve us well if this is continued. Pac's are such a new concept with the interior and electrical one needs to be persistant in keeping everyting up to par.

We have owned our Pacifica for 2 years now. When we bought it, things like the safety features greatly influenced our decision. Now, 2 years later we are still very happy with the car. The issues mentioned by others such as the less than stellar gas mileage (19 average), the difficulty getting into the third row, and the transmission acting like a gear is missing between 1 and 2 are all things that we experience. My son loves to watch his dvd's while we travel and it certainly makes the trip easier on everyone. Since we only have 2 children, getting into the 3rd row is not a problem, we don't use it very often. The car is comfortable, safe and nice handling.

We chose to add all the available features to upgrade our car to include all the features we always really wanted in a car- the leather seat pkg., dvd and entertainment up grade, sunrooof, nav. system, ect. and the price was still reasonable. Compared to a comp. equiped Cadillac, Lexus, or VW it was a deal. It might not have the status of the previously mentioned models but its comfort and appointments are just as nice. Weare very pleased. The only real drawback we have found is the lack of visibility when backing up. This could be solved by adding the rear sensor option from Mopar. Other than that we love our Pacifica!

Ever since the first TV commercial I saw for the Pacifica I was taken by its stylish appearance. I love the width and road hugging feeling when I drive it. It has been a very safe car for me I had some problems with it initially that I have come to attribute to it's first manufacture year as well as some malfunctioning assemblers on the line. Chrysler and my dealership were top notch in dealing with me and the vehicle. My lease will be up in another year. I am looking forward to that notification that offers me a buy-out so I can get myself into an '06 or an '07 with all the new bells and whistles. I believe in this car. I would get another one without question. A red one this time!

I drove the car because of its unique looks and the all wheel drive. After test driving a Rendezvous, Envoy XL, MDX and (last) Pacifica, I was amazed! The Pacifica hands down was the best looking and most comfortable of the group. Now, after driving it for 2 years, I'm still impressed. The drive is almost sporty, I get 20mpg on a mix of city/highway driving and its only been to the shop one time (other than oil changes). The all wheel drive has been outstanding during our Minnesota winters and the heated seats (front AND back) keep everyone warm and cozy while listening to the awesome stereo.

I have really enjoyed driving this vehicle for the past two years. With 2 children, one of whom is handicapped, this is a roomy, functional and comfortable vehicle. The styling is refined externally and internally. The Pacifica is equally at home at the opera or at the vacation cabin. This is one of those vehicles with a wide divergence in rating between the drivers (more positive) and the professional rating groups.

We recently bought an '04 Pacifica. It is very pleasing to look at inside and out but there are some definite issues with the car. First, 250 hp seems like a lot but it is a bit of a dog with the AWD (15.3 mpg avg to boot, yikes!). Basically it is as fast as the minivan you are probably looking to replace, no better. Second, if you are over 6'2" pay attention to front seat comfort. The seats are a bit too firm for my tastes and don't go back far enough for me so unfortunately commuting isn't the pleasure I expected. Overall, I think the car is a good value as a used vehicle. Its pleasing on the eye inside and out. It just needs more power and a more comfortable driving position.

Watch your expectations

I recently bought an 04 AWD Pac. to replace my 99 Caravan. The Pac. looks great inside and out, but isn't really meeting my expectations. I expected a car that I could drop the kids off at the bus stop and then turn loose for the morning commute. Unfortunately two items are really disappointing so far. 1) Acceleration stinks -- Despite 250 hp, this car feels SLOW. Basically expect minivan speed, no more. 2) Interior comfort -- The seats are very uncomfortable for tall people and even the "upgraded stereo" sounds tinny. It may sound trivial but on a long morning commute it is punishing. Overall the Pac. is a nice car but watch your expectations or you're likely to be disappointed.

We have 3 kids. Two require Throne car seats, our third is now the size of a small adult. We needed a car to fit all 5 us so we needed a 3rd seat. I researched all midsize SUV's with 3rd row seating. No 3rd row seat was functional or comfortable and all are hard to get to. We looked at larger SUV's (Yukon, Expedition, Tahoe). A bit to large for my wife & 200-250 a month on gas alone - uh no. A small vanity issue kept us out of minivans hence the Pacifica. Great so far. NICE style bells & whistles, all wheel drive is great (we did purchase the most comprehensive ext. warranty to cover these bells and whistles up to 100,000 miles). Great use of interior space. Working accessible 3rd row

Overall, a very good vehicle that does not live up to the "designed/influenced etc. by Mercedes" line the dealer trys to push. Excellent for 4 people, but flipping the middle seats down to get 2 additional in the back is a problem. Decent performance held back by 4 spd transmission and peaky motor. Very good handling until limited suspension travel used up, with a thud. Very little stowage space with all seats up, decent with rear seats folded. Outstanding in snow and poor conditions (4WD model). Overall, a feeling of lack of refinement. Others likely not as demanding nor push as hard as me - YMMV.

My 2004 Pacifica is probably the most comfortable car that I've ever owned. Build quality and reliability are slightly above average in comparison to other cars that I have owned. However, all of this falls to the wayside after having a miserable experience getting warranty work performed. We had problems with the suspension was covered under the warranty. However, we were still charged for the work. Their explanations vague and evasive. They also kept the car several days longer than promised. I'm not displeased with the car. But because of the hideous service from the dealer, I will NEVER, under any conditions, buy another Chrysler product.

My Pacifica drives like a Cadillac. It is a real pleasure to get behind the wheel. When I drive on the express-way, it will really fly! With the gas crunch right now, it is a little rough on the pocketbook. It doesn't get great mileage in the city. My Big complaint about the Pacifica is its limited rear vision.To me, it is a major design flaw. If I had test driven it on the freeway for any length of time, I probably would not have bought it!! It was an impulse buy because of it's great looks and fabulous ride. It has the potential to be quite dangerous because it is hard to see whats coming up on your sides. The back window is too small.

We got the full featured model with DVD changer, etc. It's an excellent balance between SUV solidity and the handling of a car. We've had some mechanical problems though. The brake rotors were warped, and when the rear windows are open an obnoxious ear-deafening vibrating sound can be heard. Visibility is really bad with the small rear view window. Our driver side mirror makes clicking noise and has limited mobility; this was reported to dealer mechanic, but they didn't do anything. The tire sensors continuously go off--it's very hard to keep the air balanced accordingly. Avoid dealer mechanics at all costs-- boy do they rip you off! I only get 19 MPG--which is much lower than sticker

This Chrysler product has been the worst vehicle from the car to the dealer! I owned Jeep products for 15 years but I never had a car I can't wait to get rid of! From the blind spot, the low gas mileage (17mpg), continuous check engine lights, the rear hatch, limited interior room to the dealer that can't fix things, it's been a real dog!

I just bought a used Pacifica AWD 2004 @ 38,000km and put-on 4,500 km in 8 weeks. Long distances feel as though the real time is halved due to the high level of driving comfort & sportiness. Stepping out of a vehicle without driving fatigue is a pleasure. No reliability problems to date and performance is acceptable for highway passing. I recommend a fully optioned Pacifica. A used buy is excellent value. It is too bad Chrysler mgmt. has not backed the higher priced Pacifica concept as it is an original design & quality build.

Wonderful long distance cruiser-- interstate gas mileage @ 70mph is 22.4 mpg on 89 octane--great for 4780 lb. car! Seats and interior layout excellent. Infinity stereo great. Only negative is side vision on rear mirrors that is correctable slightly with spot convex glued on mirrors as an aid. I recommend AWD-- was forced off inside lane of I-95 by truck at 75 mph and passed ahead with two right wheels on pavement and 2 left wheels on grass. The car did not slip at all with the AWD, which probably saved my life. I intend to replace this car in the next few months with another Pacifica AWD, since I drive approximately 4000 miles/month. I have twice recommended the hemi to Chrysler as '06 option

I bought a used program base model Pacifica that had 10k miles on it. I have since put 22k miles on the vehicle. The only issue I had with the vehicle was a loose bolt on a seat belt tensioner for a rear seat. My family drove the car on a 3,400 mile trip through the mountains of VA, WV and PA then up to northern Canada. The Pacifica was extremely comfortable with four large people and all their gear. We averaged 22 mpg on the trip. Normally I drive the vehicle on a 15 mile commute in stop and go traffic. It averages 19 mpg on the commute with just me in the car. I special note is that the engine requires at least 89 octane.

Bought car due to easier entry du to disabled wife. Fuel economy very poor. Dealer in Franklin TN (Alexander) is very slippery in the sales department. Car was a dealer trade and arrived filthy and had body damage. Auto headlights work intermittently as well as drivers power seat. Dealer said "it worked when he tried it" never looked at seat motor or electronics of lights and just told me to bring it in while it broke! Front end shakes when I stop, dealer says brake rotors are warped and wants to charge $143 to fix a manufacturing defect. Head office in Germany very rude and could care less. Little things keep breaking and falling off. I would like to give it back to them. Dealer worthless.

First, I'd like to say that In general I like the fit and finsh, styling, ride, comfort, features, etc. of this vehicle. Unfortunately, this thing has had more warranty issues and recalls than ALL of the other vehicles that I have owned COMBINED. Here is a brief list of SOME of the things that have required attention: Rear liquid-filled engine mount- split open and fluid leaked out. Fuel guage- would drop to empty for no reason,then return. EGR valve blew apart and created an exhaust leak. PCM wiring harness- recall. DVD screen- replaced due to bad pixels. A/C control panel-replaced.

I am reasonably satisfied with the ride and comfort of this car but it is in reality an overweight, underpowered car with poor rear visibility, mediocre mileage, and poor reliability (early production 2004 model). It has the ever recurring belt squeal/whine noted on other early 2004 Pacificas. Repeatedly taken in for service to fix and never is fixed. Chrysler has offered a courtesy trade back for the purchase price less mileage adjustment BUT I must buy another similar product (from the same maker of my "lemon") and swap the "refund" to be applied to a new car at full MSRP. What a crock. Sell me a lemon and REQUIRE me to buy another potential lemon at full sticker. Chrysler stinks.

I'm happy to say that we've fell on love with our Pacifica. While my wife actually wanted a Town&Country, she's grown to love her new vehicle- even though it doesn't have an aisle down the middle.I love the safety features and the fact that it has enough power to move it rather effectively. It also has such a wide stance that it gives it a uniquely different look for which I applaud Chrysler for inventing. Overall, I believe we've selected a very good vehicle right down to having one of the best dealerships for any problems we may encounter. I only wish they'd provide free gas for the life of the loan!!!

I bought my pacifica as a 2004 used model,just used as a demo car from the dealership. New is was 41000, i got it for 25000! The only thing that truly disappointed me was the lack of trunk space when the third row is in use. This inhibits the vehicle greatly. I don't think the car is sluggish as some people say...I think it is just heavy set and that heaviness allows it to stick to corners and just make the passengers feel safe. The high beltline also adds on to this feeling of safety.

Overall, we love this vehicle! The last SUV that we owned was a bare bones Isuzu Amigo. The Pacifica is a luxury vehicle. One time glitch: the memory seats did not want to move. The dealership reset the system and it is fine now. The over head lights which are available at each seating position are very handy for adult passengers, but not appropriate for small children. The battery sometimes gets worn down by leaving these on accidentally, although there is a global control to turn these off on the turn signal control. This SUV is very comfortable for passengers in the front and second row of seats. The 3rd row is more comfortable than all 3rd row seats in other SUVs we test drove.

In my expeience, this car is fun to drive. You have the room of an SUV or minivan but you dont feel like you are just a soccer mom in it. It feels a little bit flashy, like you are a mom with some style. I drove it to the mall a couple days after purchase and I could not believe the great turning radius it has getting into a tight parking spot. It turns on a dime and handles beautifully too!

I was hestiant to even look at the Pacifica, but I'm glad I did. This has been the perfect family car for my wife and I. It performs great going through the city and was outstanding on a long road trip for Thanksgiving. We also appreciate the memory seating given the 10" height difference. Reliability for 10 months has also been a plus. Its only been back to the dealer for oil changes. Overall our only complaints are the window tint being too dark and rear window too small, making it hard to see out at the back night. My wife really wanted an XC90 until we compared the two. Our fully loaded Pacifica was still less than a base XC90 and we got more horsepower and better overall performance

I've had the car for 6 months now and it has only had one problem, it needed a new wiring loom in the drivers door. I traded in an 05 RWD Magnum to buy the Pacifica after I had a multitude of problems with the Dodge ESP system that dragged the car to the right. I think the overall impression I have is that it's a good, solid car that is pretty comfortable and does the job I want it to. I would like to see a V8 option on the engine list and a five speed auto stick box, this would improve the gas mileage from my current 20.1 mpg. Maybe even a turbo diesel engine option would be a good idea for those long trips on the interstate? Having now tried the AWD in the snow, I'm still very satisfied.

After owning my '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee for 7 years and loving it, then trying the truckish Explorer for several years, I was ready to go back to a Jeep. In the showroom was the Pacifica. After test driving, I was sold. As large and roomy as it is, it drives and handles like a dream. The gas mileage isn't bad either (about 18+ per gallon, better than the Jeep and Explorer, for me anyway). Getting a tow hitch installed proved to be the most frustrating, but its done now. Other than regular maintenance, I only had to take the Pacifica in one time to fix one of the power seats. That was almost a year ago.

I purchased our Pacifica 14 months ago. I am impressed with the car overall. The ride and build quality are some of the best on the market. It handles well on dry, wet, and icy roads. Comfort on long and short trips is outstanding. The car is basically a Mercedes with a Chrysler wing logo on it. In 14 months, I have only had to have the car worked on twice (power seat module and HVAC blower fan motor), other than normal service. I am disappointed with the car not retaining its value, based on the Edmunds Used Car values.

I now have 30,000 miles on my Pacifica and I couldn't be happier. The Dodge Magnum is the only other vehicle that calls my name but I know the Magnum would only give me a fraction of the features my Pacifica gives me. Passenger comfort and ease of entry, especially for older parents, is unmatched by any other vehicle. The Pacifica has enough power to get me up to a minimum of 65 mph on any freeway onramp and enough to sustain 75 mph in autostick up a steep grade. Does anyone need more power than that? Memory seats & petals make switching drivers a breeze. Knowing you are driving one of, if not the safest cars on the road is very comforting.

My mileage is pretty good, my wife has a heavy foot so her mpg is not too good. I averaged 19+ which is @ 4 mpg less than my 4-cyl Honda element for the same weekly travel cycle. Great seats, engine is good; wanted a 5-sp auto, tho. Gets a buzz in the dash like another that a drove and you CANNOT see out the back to back up. we have spent all day in this vehicle, crossing states with both highway and stop-and-go driving and came away refreshed. lots of storage but seats are a little fumbly. Passes others fine and was as solid as a tank in 8 inches of hardened, slippery snow (AWD). I love the look; call it a van if you want, sportwagon is the most accurate name. I would recommend it.

We bought our AWD Pacifica last March in order to get to our new house in the Catskills. It's a fantastic ride. Styling and quality are the best I've seen in an American made car. Last weekend we had our first AWD test with heavy snow at night and a deer jumped out in front of us - the AWD worked beautifully and slowed us down without skidding. The navigation, heated seats and power lift gate are all phenomenal. A little more engine power and better side and rear visibility would make this a continued best seller for Chrysler.

We found out that we were having our first baby and knew that it was time to get a "mom car" for me instead of the sports car (we put that away for when mommy has some alone time!!). I wanted something that was safe, as well as having a sporty side to it. The Pacifica has it all. With all of the safety features and high ratings from the crash tests, I know that I can feel confident that our new baby will be safe when riding in the car. Even with the baby and all of his things, we still have plenty of room for cargo or more passengers. If you are looking for comfort than this is the vehicle for you as well. The handling is smooth and has an enjoyable ride. We highly recommend this car/SUV !!!

I purchased the Pacifica over a year ago. In the beginning it was nice. Gas has been an issue with it, also very little storage space. Not comfortable on a drive over 2 hrs. Warning lights pop up every time it is cold and my cruise control works 1/2 the time. It has been towed away at least 4 times in past year for lights blinking until battery dies, seat belt jams a lot, airbag light is on for no reason found by mechanics at chrysler. I get compliments on the looks of it but when asked how i like it I have to be honest and say dodge caravan is a lot better!

This is my wife's ride but I wish it were mine (and I'm only 38 and a car enthusiast!). I am very pleased with our Pacifica (and I thought I'd never buy a Chrysler). Since I bought in July '04, I was able to get what I think was a very good deal with rebates and dealer discount. The ride is sporty yet comfortable. The car in silver with Chrome wheels looks great. The AWD really helps when the roads are wet (can't wait for snow) and the Michelin tires are awesome. So far, I am very happy with the vehicle except for tyring to back it up in the dark. The back-up lights are miserably underpowered.

Traded a minivan for Pacifica, wife and I are carnuts with Sebring conv. and Corvette as second/third cars. Liked the exterior styling and really like interior and the ability to lower all rear seats rather than lifting out seats for hauling. First test drive sold us for the extremely quiet ride and low engine noise. Just felt like we were driving a luxury car rather than van/suv. Only complaint is rear vision when backing up with high window and the backup lights don't do much when backing up at night.

Great Car

We were looking for a car that was sporty but had a third seat. We love the ride, which is quiet, the interior set-up which is spacious, the ease of using controls, and my wife really likes the heated seats. When I first bought the care it was recalled immediately (power train chip) and the tire pressure monitor did not function and needed to be changed. But nothing since and we now have 3500 miles. On the first trip I got 23-4 mpg and have been averaging 18-19 in city so not bad but I hope for improvement. The car is underpowered and shifts into high gear quicker than my wife's Bonneville which gets better mileage running at lower RPM's.

This vehicle was a hit from the word "GO". The buying experience from our local dealerhip in Canoga Park was so easy and straight forward, my wife and I couldn't believe it. The vehicle handles like a dream and the creature comforts are almost excessive. From the NAV system to the power rear liftgate my family is wrapped in features. We really enjoy the quiet ride and awesome stereo system! My little ones love watching a DVD on the rear seat video system. With the wireless headphones, it gives my wife and I a chance to listen to the radio or chat, which is great. The Gas mileage was not great, but with my family safe, its a small price to pay.

The car is extremely comfortable on long trips, with stretches of 300 miles without a break leaving us surprisingly fresh. The fuel economy on the highway averages around 21 mpg cruising at 75 mph, but the city mileage is poor at just over 12mpg. There is a huge blind spot on the drivers side which is a little unnerving in heavy traffic. The controls are very friendly, with pretty precise temperature controls. The heated seats are particularly appreciated by my wife and I in the cool northern climate. Overall it is surefooted and very comfortable.

Though we have not had this car very long, I can tell this is the best all around car we have had. We came off an Expedition Eddie B. to this car, and the space of the Pacifica it's incredible. You must get in one to believe it. Interior and ride are just like a Mercedes Benz! The car is simply beautiful in and out, as well as comfortable and practical.

My 2004 Chrysler Pacifica is the best handling, most comfortable, a delight to drive vehicle I have ever owned. I especially find the most useful feature to be the moving map. I could not do without this item now that I am used to using it. This vehicle corners better than any vehicle that I have ever riden in. I would like to help design the exterior trim. This is the only item I would want changed on my Pacifica.

I am not nearly as impressed with the vehicle now as I was 9 months ago. In the past 15,000 miles...The motor knocks upon starting, ticks constantly. When backing up with the wheel fully cranked to the right something in the front makes an awful clunking noice. The low tire pressure warning stays on permanently flashing and chiming even though no tires are low. The topper...I average 12-13 mpg in town and 14-15 on the highway a far cry from what the sticker says. I don't feel that all of the good points outweigh the bad at this point.

The Pacifica is a well thought out vehicle for the family of 6 or less with creature comforts that would make any long trip a pleasure. My biggest problem with the vehicle (which is why it is not the perfect car) is the miserable lack of power and extremely poor gas mileage (14 City - 20 Hwy). Having traded a 300M in for the Pacifica, I was already familiar with the poor rear visability but having the exact same engine as the 300M (which had ample power with no downshifts on mountains to maintain speed) gave me the false sense that the Pacifica would also be responsive. The car is sluggish and creates a real problem in heavy high speed traffic merging

I fell for the Pacifica while renting one on vacation in April. So, this summer I bought one! I loved how it had enough room for all the luggage of four adults that over-packed. I didn't even know there was a third row of seats under our luggage, until I started shopping for new SUV's. I had an SUV back home, and it rode like an SUV. In my Pacifica, I feel like i'm in the lap of luxury in my leather seat with the 10 way adjustment. I've received so many complements on the look of the car, and they don't even know about all of the cool toys on the inside.

Gas mileage reaches 25 MPG on Wyoming/Colorado interstate, about 17 in town. Can tow trailer down the highway and still get nearly 17 MPG.

We JUST bought our Pacifica and we LOVE it. This is our second Chrylser product that we have purchased and I have to say that they do good work. My husband actually flattened one of the tires on his car so that he could drive it to work! If you are thinking of getting this car and you are kindof on the fence about it, GO DRIVE IT! Dealerships are more than happy to let you take it for like an hour or two so just that you can see what all the car can do.

Yes, this is our first Chrysler product. We were almost frightened out of buying it by relatives, but overall I am pleased with our Pacifica. We will have owned it one year in November. It has been easier to drive than I expected; it just takes a little getting used to the blindspots and being more aware of your surroundings. It's a fun car -- got lots of attention last year when there weren't too many others around! I would definitely buy another one if Chrysler changed the 2nd row seating to accomodate 3 passengers.

After over 2 months of driving this vehicle,it is hard to find anything wrong with it! Gas mileage is surprisingly good for its size (18/city and up to 24/highway). It is comfortable for a family of 7, with no complaints from tall adults in the second row, & 3 kids love the comfort of the third row! Ride is smooth, handling is reliable, and soundproofing (enhanced by dealer undercoating) allows for comfortable level of conversation or listening to radio. Only suggestion would be that prospective owners consider installing the backup warning system at the dealership if not already installed. Chrysler has a winner here!

Car handles fine---gas mileage leaves a little to be desired (13 and 21) versus same engine in previous car (300M) at 17 and 24. Outside plastic discoloration needs to be addressed by factory. Back bumper easily reflects bumps (creases) and its costly to replace.

Love the Pacifica. Purchased 9 mo. ago, other than oil changes and tire rotation no problems. Terrific in the ssnow. Very comfortable on long trips. Just completed a 2,865 mi trip thru NY state and the mid-west. 21.9 total MPG average with A/C. Without A/C add 1 MPG. One long leg of trip, Indianapolis, I.N. to Lexington K.Y. on interstate w/o air 25.5 MPG at 70 MPH. If you keep your foot out of the throttle the fuel usage is wxcellent for a 2 ton car. Optional hi-intesity headlights are fantastic!!!

I previously had several minivans and was sick of being designated a "soccer mom" even though I have no wife and kids. The Pacifica in no way is a soccer mom vehicle and has most of the same utility values that a mini van does. While storage is not quite as good as the mini van, the appearance of the vehicle and the functionality out weigh that issue. The exterior design is attention getting and functional except for the rear window effects which make it nearly impossible to clean the window with a squeege. The dash is very attractive and unique with the backlit LED style and the digital information center. The leather seating is very comfortable

This is the first time I have bought a family car and selected the Pacifica based on the interior and safty rating. So far the car is functioning as expected. My 2 main concerns with the car after a year is reliablity (2 recalls in a year) and the engine. So far we have averaged 16.5 mpg. This would be acceptable if the car had good acceleration, but it does not. The ride is smooth, but you have to really think ahead if you are changing lanes, since acceleration is minimal.

Great vehicle for long trips. I traded a woody PT Cruiser for more comfort. The PT got only 25 on a long trip; I'm getting a consistent 20-22 after only 5K on the odometer. I'm going to full synthetic oil at the 6K oil change for more mpg, hopefully. Like my PT, I get a lot of positive comments from passers- by. I love the magnesium color. My neighbor traded their Jeep for a Pacifica after looking at mine. Stated it had more room than the Jeep.

We purchased the Pacifica because we did not want a van + incentives were good. So far, the car has been great except for a few minor issues - foam "0-ring" inside tailgate handle is coming out (after seeing other Pacificas on the road, it seems to be a common problem), loose wheel wells, scratches show vividly on center consoles and there is a lot of wind noise when over 40mph. Overall I am satisfied with the purchase and that is mostly because of utility, price and a great alternative to a less desired minivan. The 2nd + 3rd row seats are very roomy, and very comfortable for adults.

The car has 4,000 miles on it and has been in the shop over 12 days. The majority of these days are for the fan belt pully replacement. When accelarating a slipping noise occurs. They attempted 3 times to fix. Now this week the check engine light came on and blinked rapidly. Called the dealer and they said not to drive and sent a flat bed to pick it up. They said that a computer board needed to be replaced. I have the car for about 70 days of which 12 have been in the shop. Not too happy with Chrysler.

This is our first american car, and we didn't regret getting it. Not only with it's attactive looking, and also the features inside the vehicle. First of all, its wider and longer than those Japanese cars. When we compare that with a van, this car beats them easily. AWD, with DVD and NAV that's the most features we love about. We certainly think DC did a great job in design the ease of use. Only words, what a wonderful job they did. One thing I don't quite like, is their rebates program. I don't think they should lower the price to make the sales goes up. They should build the reputation and customer will come. Just like the mercedes tactic.

The dealer said it's a belt problem that Chrysler is trying to fix but how long will it take. Seem very embarrising to drive a new car with temp tags and a loud squeak to go along with it. But when I did drive it it handled nice gas of course could be alot better. Oh the squek starts when you start the car and driv for a long time. And please don't try calling Chrysler because they are no help at all.

Quietest Chrysler i've had (this is my 4th). Driving up mountains, it labored a little and lowered yyhe mileage. However, it 's only gone 4,000 miles so far and has averaged 22 mpg on a 1,200 mile trip from FL to WV. I've had more compliments on it than any car I've owned. Love it and highly recommend it.

Well rounded family car with wonderful features. Great in poor weather, and carries my two long-legged ballerinas and all their stuff with ease. I am 6'5", and when I drive there is still enough room behind me for an above avg. adult to sit in comfort. The nav position is shockingly logical, and the dvd and bluetooth are easy to use. The profile is attractive from every angle. We opted for red with chrome wheels, and get stares of approval everywhere we drive. Sport tourer is the right name, I could take this car on long drives through all kinds of weather any day. One of the best cars I've ever owned.

The Pacifica rides so smooth. We enjoy taking road trips now because we know we can depend on it, also because it is a lot more fuel efficient than most other suvs/mini-vans. We also enjoy the power lift gate, instead of the standard. The leather seats give it a sporty look also great option is the heated seats.

I've had my Pacifica for less than two months now and so far I've had it in the shop 5 times and going for #6. The concept behind the Pacifica is very good however the build quality on this vehicle is horrible. The drivers side floor board is always wet due to a leak that they can't seem to find. I've also had a computer system go bad and it just went out again yesterday and now there is a clunk in the rear when you go over bumps. I couldn't pass up the lease special on this car, that's why I bought it. I can't wait until my lease is up. It fits my family's needs very well however It should be parked in my driveway all the time and not the dealership.

I have no complaints about this car/wagon/ minivan. I wish the milage was better, but I knew what I was getting when I bought it. I rides very smoothly, is quiet, has lots of room, and is not a SUV. The dealership was great and I got a price below what Edmunds told me was TMV. I would recomend this car to anyone.

"Refreshing" would be a good choice of words. Purchased our Pacifica in Oct. 2003 and went thru a normal winter in the northeast. The vehicle drove under winter conditions as if it was mounted on rails.The vehicle is rock solid and has the handling & feel of a Mercedes M class SUV.Our fuel economy has been acceptable for a 4000lb.+ vehicle. We are consistantly experiencing 17 mpg local and 22+ in highway with 10,280 miles The V6 delivers ample power.A bit more touque would be helpful. The plush interior, premium sound system, advanced nav.system, high intensity headlights,& power equip.are well engineered. A "Mercedes" with a Chrysler badge & price.

We purchased our Pacifica in October 2003. We fell in love with the style and spacious seating area. I have had no mechanical issues so far. We love the fact that Chrysler offers a rental car when taking it in for service. The car is excellent for the average size family and for lugging the neighborhood kids back and forth to school.

This is a great car. I read the reviews and will have to agree that this is one of the best cars I have owned. Mine is loaded with all the goodies. Mileage I just got on a trip south averaged 21 miles per gallon. The fit and finish is up to German quality, the Navagation is very helpful and easy to use. Air control can be adjusted side to side and front to back. Leather is much better than my Ford Excursion. Motor has plenty of pep, this is not a sports car for those who feel it is lacking. Highspeed manuvering has a bit of tail wag. Did I mention that I love this car ?

I dislike my 2004 Pacifica and if I had it all to do over I would not have purchased it. The V6 at times is under powered, due to the fact that the car is extremely heavy. This also takes a toll on the gas mileage, which is much much lower than the sticker and most reviews indicate. In addition my 2004 has been having a belt issue that has not been resolved after 2 trips back to the shop. My car has been under repair so much that I'm beginning to feel like the dealership loaner PT is my actual car. I would not recommend this car to anyone.

We wanted an SUV to complement the Lincoln Town Car we also have. However, all the SUVs we looked at were uncomfortable or not luxurious enough (unless they were very expensive). The Pacifica is somewhat like an old-fashioned "station wagon." It is easy to get in and out of but it sits higher on the road that a regular car. It is luxurious and comfortable and give good performance with adequate gas mileage. We like it!

I like how it feels like driving a car even though we are sitting up higher than most cars. It is more aerodynamic than the boxy looking SUV's. I feel much safer driving it because of all the safety features.

The German infulence shows. The handling compares to BMW or Mercedes. Glad I bought the FWD rather than AWD. The gas mileage is better and managed our PA snow just fine. I wouldn't recommend it for a young family dealing with car seats or car pooling but it works well with my 11 and 13 year olds who want their own seats and contols.

This may be the best car I've ever owned. My only comment for improvement would be to add a larger power plant because the 3.8 litre V-8 feels a little sluggish at times. The Auto Stick feature is a lot of fun and the ride quality is solid as a rock. I love the lines and the build quality. A real winner.

This is a really nice vehicle. It looks good, handles well, rides nice and has a pretty fair amount of room inside. I didn't get any options since this is just an extra vehicle we bought for when we need to haul things or take 6 people. I have had one problem so far with a misaligned fan belt pulley, but otherwise it runs very nice. If you can pick one up at a good discount, this vehicle is great.

Did I say I love it??? I used to drive a Town and Country, and liked it a lot, but hated the "mommy" image. Ditched it for an Envoy. Nice, but felt truck-like, and then I started to feel like I was driving a cookie- cutter truck!!! When I saw the Pacifica, I fell in love. It has all of the features I want: 3rd row seat, fold-down configuragions galore, Great styling, lots of gadgets and gizmos (love the navigation system!!!) and best of all it is NOT a van or a Truck! My gas mileage has averaged 18 mpg overall...mostly city driving, at that. Not too bad, in my opinion.

I have ongoing medical problems with my lower back and a major nerve on my right side and have been able to travel long distance, arriving at my destination feeling better than I did in the vehicle it replaced.

We shopped around extensively before making this purchase, looking at multiple minivans and SUVs. With a child due in 5 months, we needed a vehicle that would be safe, comfortable, and have enough room for all the "stuff" involved when traveling with a baby. The Pacifica met all our requirements in addition to handling the best of the vehicles, having the most comfortable driver's and passenger's seats, and some great options. We believe we got he most for a money and a vehicle we will be happy with for a long time.

I have had my Pacifica for a little over seven months. The first couple were great. I have had nothing but problems with it lately. In the last couple months I have put in a new dash cluster, new headlights, and a new AC/heat unit (because the display panel went out). It also broke down on me during a short roadtrip, something with the air in-take or out-take. While it looks nice, it is not a cheap car and it should not have this many problems. Yes, everything so far has been under warranty, but as much as I drive the warranty isn't going to last that much longer. Then I will be screwed, electrical problems are not cheap.

It has been ten years since I had bought a car, so I was ready to get into something new.

In fact, everyone liked it, and the more I showed it to people, the more I enjoyed it myself. By the end of my 24 hour test drive, I was completely sold that this was the vehicle for me.

The moon roof exploded and pushed the glass in small pieces up and out of the vehicle. Glass came back into the vehicle. The dealership was not concerned with safety. They were unable to understand the safety concern. A 2nd moon roof was installed. The weatherproof strip buckled in less than a day. The dealership could not explain the previous so we were concerned this buckling may create the same accident. The owner of Norco Motors Pacifica moon roof has no signs buckling. A 3rd moon roof will be installed in the vehicle. They apologize that we feel unsafe. They are sure we are not. They cannot explain why it happened.

Talk about a love/hate relationship! Luckily the Pacifica leans more towards love than hate. Very enjoyable to drive, extremely well built (Mercedes connection really shows here). However Pacifica is not without problems. Awful fuel mileage (13 City/22 Hwy). Acceleration is..um..leisurely. Plenty of power, but poor gear ratios (forget 2nd). Performance is much better using the auto-stick to hold the gear longer. Rear visibility is in a word, DANGEROUS!. Reliabilty good so far (7500 miles) with the exception of new front wheel bearings at about 4000 miles. Conclusion: Do I like the car? Very much. Would I buy another? Doubtful.

Awesome Pacifica

We just purchased ours a few days ago, paid $34395 they sold us the extended warranty and gap insurance (dumb, right?). Paid 27355 before taxes, etc. Drives nice, stereo is OK, cloth SEATS GAVE US A RASH! We get about 7.7 miles to the gallon. NOT GOOD! We thought the mileage was better, we feel very angry, wish we could take it back because at 8 miles a gallon, it's gonna cost a fortune to use! It's a mini van basically. Now I heard about a POWERTRAIN recall?? What's that all about?? It's pretty though, but the stereo sucks. Seats itch, having the moonroof put in today - wish me luck!

The slightly de-contented “base” Premium package plus rebate represents a fairly high-end car for the money (mid-$20s out the door). The extra features in the pricey "Luxury" package are not missed – the base car still has a lot of bells and whistles. Substantial body and chassis with a hefty feel of quality. Guests are very surprised by such a high-end interior “for a Chrysler.” Only one quality fault so far: both front power seats stopped working after two weeks. Turned out to be a control module; dealer had to special-order the repair part. Overall we really love driving and riding in the car – we hate to take out our minivan or our pickup truck now.

Chrysler hit the nail on the head with this crossover vehicle. It is absolutely the quietest and smoothest vehicle I have ever owned. It had responsive steering, wonderfully adequate a/c, killer electronics: i.e. put in the key and the memory puts the radio stations, mirrors, pedals, and seat where you had it...it does it for two people! Fit and finish are incredible. The rear seats are adjustable just like the front buckets. The rear gate opens electronically, a/c vents for all THREE rows of seats. Guess what? we're pulling our boat with it.

THIS UNIT IS A TRUE JOY TO OWN, EXCEPT AT THE GAS PUMP. 18.7 MPG ISN'T BAD OVERALL FOR AN SUV? OF THIS SIZE THOUGH. ALL-WHEEL DRIVE MAKES IT NIMBLE AND QUICK IN TOUGH PARKING LOT SITUATIONS. THE ADJUSTABLE AND RECLINING SECOND ROW SEATING IS GREAT FOR RIDERS AND THE FOLD FLAT SEATS MAKE CARGO HAULING A BREEZE. THE TRANSMISSION TAKES A BIT OF GETTING USED TO.

I like everything about the vehicle except the gas mileage. It is nowhere close to the advertised 17/23 city/hghwy mpg on the MSRP window sticker. More closer to 14.5/20.2. Inquired at dealer got unacceptable statement of that the "engine needs to break in". Thanks for insulting my intelligence, Chrysler. Called Corporate Headquarters to also be given the run around until I demanded a ticket be opened to investigate. The dealer stated Chrysler knows they have a problem. The question is will they do anything about it?

I had seen the Pacifica a year ago and was initially turned off by the price. The vehicle I saw was loaded with a sticker price floating towards $40K. Two months ago, I saw a local dealership advertising the Pacifica for $25K. I wound up getting another $1K off. Granted this is the base model but its content is similar to the Lincoln LS I was driving which stickered near $38K. Throw in the 4yr 0% interest and this has me wondering if its close to the best deal on four wheels.

Ride is great. For a AWD it rides like a car. I test drove some AWD and my back hurt in ten minutes, this I can drive for hours. The car has been perfect quality wise. Being 6.3 tall having a car I fit in is nice, having one an adult can sit behind me is even better. I drive this every day on a dirt road and it did great in the snow, even before the plows got there.

We were looking for a replacement of a 9 year minivan, and wanted something completely different. For our family of four, the Pacificas’ combination of AWD, six passenger seating, and long list of available options made it a clear choice. Our loaded wagon has everything we need, handles well, excellent safety record, and versatility. On top of all that, it is a great looking vehicle that has consistently gotten compliments.

A good, practical car with nice interior details. My wife and I decided that it was a nice compromise between a Minivan (too pedestrian and lacking in style, no 4 wheel drive on the Honda available) and an SUV (too large, difficult to get into 3rd row for our 3rd young child, and poor mileage). It has meet our expectations in almost every respect (the exceptation being that gas mileage is well below the official City and Hwy ratings) and I would recommend the car provided you can get it in the low 30s for a fully loaded version. (FYI we got about 6K off the sticker)

The biggest complaint I hear about the Pacifica is the gas mileage. For you Pacifica owners, I have replaced the stock air filter with a K@N filter. Sinse I have my mileage has increased approx 3 miles to the gallon. That is in town only, have not taken on a trip as of yet. The cost of the filter can be somewhere around $30.00 to 40.00. Money well spent.

Although I love the look and ride of this car, I have had a few annoying problems with it since 11/03. Electric grid for my power windows blew after only 3 weeks. Then about 4 weeks ago (early March 2004), my power seats stopped working. Luckily they were in the position that I drive in when they stopped working. The part took 10 days to come in during which time my husband was unable to drive it due to the seat position. In the meantime I received a notice of some powertrain recall. I feel as though I have received a lemon.

We were leery of buying another Chrysler - haven't always had great luck with them. Also, having driven a van for the past 18 years we were looking for a change but needed 'van" features. What a surprise with our new Pacifica. It drives wonderfully, is roomy, unbelievably well appointed, quiet, and looks great. We drive a lot of carpools, and all of the kids in the car find the seats very comfortable. I would highly recommend the Pacifica as an alternative to both a van and an SUV (we owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee too). It has the utility of an SUV with the ride of a luxury car and the seating of a van.

It is soooo much more spacious in the back seat than our Jeep was, adults sit very comfortably in the back. Cargo space is excellent if you do not have to use the third row.

One of the most beautiful and fun-to- drive vehicles of all time is the 1956 T-Bird. I sold mine in 1987, and I have never enjoyed a car since then, until I purchased a 2004 Pacifica. I thought I would never again experience the fun I used to when I drove around the California coast in my T-Bird, but that fun is back! After reaching the age of 40, I didn't believe much of my daily routine would be fun again, but it is. My wife now prefers driving my Pacifica over her 2003 Town and Country. Daimler Chrysler hit a home run with this one. I recommend taking a test drive in the Pacifica - but plan to buy if you do!

I was hesitant to purchase the Pacifica because of the minivan references in every review I read, but after test driving several other cars including the Toyota Highlander, Mitsubishi Endevor and the Chevy Trailblazer, I realized I was ready to make the upgrade to the Pacifica. There is no comparison to those other SUVs. The comfort, handling and reliability are closer to the Lexsus 330 and the Infinity FX35 without the higher price. You definetly get more bang for your buck.

My husband is in love with this car. Very smooth ride. The kids love their captain's chairs. However, it's been in for service 11 days already - we've owned it just over a month. Engine control computer and radio replaced, work done to power liftgate, and now we have a possible suspension problem. I don't like how noisy the engine is, but that's just a personal thing with me.

Purchased car 2 months ago and have driven physically had it maybe 3 wks it has been back to the dealer sitting there because it would just shut off while driving. No matter where you are on the highway, back roads doing 60 or 20 making turns or going straight it will just shut off then hopefully you can coast safely to the side. It hasn't killed anyone yet so Chrysler has "no fix" As we speak it sits in clinton with "no fix" and I have a great rental, may i recommend the Yukon? It's a reliable car!

I bought my Pacifica in February, picked it up in the middle of a snowstorm, and it was great. I thought going from an SUV to this car was going to be a problem, but it wasn't. It is a great car and my son loves it too. He wanted a mini van and I wanted a car. This is somewhere inbetween.

We have for median price more luxury, comfort, and practicality than the above models. Design is outstanding (inside and out)Upgrades are phenomenal in quality. Our choice is fully loaded with the exception of the navigation and dvd features which we prepped in case we change our minds. Even in L.A. the design does stop traffic. Everyone who has ridden (up to six) has been tremendously impressed. ONLY drawbacks- -mediocre accelaration on freeway on- ramps and difficulty with visibility by right back passenger side. Fuel usage was as expected. Should we have gotten the AWD instead of the FWD?

Saw the Pacifica at the 2003 Pittsburgh Auto show. Wanted a change from the Town & Country vans we have been driving. Love everything about the car except two things. Being 6'7" I need leg room. I would have more if Chrysler would redesign the tilt lever and also move the ignition placement. Twice I've hit the key with the car running and have shut off the engine. My left knee is a tight fit between the door and Tilt lever. Chrysler please fix. Other than that it's a great vehicle. Ordered the INFERNO RED car with light Taupe interior.

DO NOT PURCHASE any car from ED VOYLES CHRYSLER in Marietta, Georgia. When my new Pacifica was delivered to me I found 2 dents which had to be removed. My battery died while my car was parked in my garage after owning it for only 1 week. The dealer installed a moonroof and DVD screen. They left metal shavings all over the interior and the DVD screen has a large red dot in the picture. The sales staff slammed their door in my wifes' face after a stupid understanding.

After losing our beloved Grand Caravan AWD in an accident 3 days before Xmas, we scrambled to find another AWD to take advantage of the year-end rebates. We ended up with a Pacifica. It's beautiful, it's luxurious, it feels very safe, but it's a pig. It carries fewer people and less stuff, but is wider and heavier than the GC it replaced. It gets terrible gas mileage and has so many blind spots, backing up at night is a crap shoot. My wife refuses to drive it unless she absolutely has no other choice. Thank God it's a 3 year lease.

The overall vehicle is a perfect fit for the lifestyle of having a growing family (+dog) while still looking stylish and not minivan-like or traditional SUV massive/tippy. Design outside is excellent - clean and stylish. Interior is very good, but some cheap materials like the carpet, sun visors, and seat molding that pulled away from it's screw doesn't bring it to pure luxury status. O.k. seriously what manufacturer makes a 4,500+ pound vehicle that gets better than 16 mpg city??? The folks who have panned if for MPG can't cheat physics. 250 hp engines will suck gas. That needs to be an normal expectation from any heavy V6 vehicle.

After nearly 6000 miles we find that while it's fun to drive and gets comments for its sharp looks, the Pacifica has some design and quality control problems.The electronic climate control panel blinks out(waited 4 weeks for new parts),there was a "cracking" sound when the wheel was turned hard left or right (dealer took 10 days to fix),and there's another "cracking" sound when shifting. Dealer said that all Pacifica parts are taking a long time to get in. Not satisfied like we should be for a car in the Mercedes family and that is over $30,000. Probably should have forked over a little more and bought the Lexus SUV.

Style. Room. Surefooted. Smooth. Features galore. Overall a suitable car for a man with a family and a need for better than average handling and weekend runs to Home Depot or Lowes. Our two labradors love to make nose prints on the back windows. Car expresses some reticence to climb mountain roads at altitude with anything resembling athletisism. If BMW would make an X-7 or 7 series wagon, the folks at Daimler-Chrysler would have had no opportunity to build it for them. Granted this car lacks the build quality of the Bavarian it aspires to be.

We just picked up our new 2004 Butane Blue(delivered from factory last week!) Pacifica. Absoluteley AWESOME car/SUV/mini- van/whatever! Have put 500 miles on it this week, no problems or issues yet....seems to be VERY well built, drives super, and a luxury interior that cannot be beat! I am getting about 19.5 MPG at this stage, not bad for a new one, I am sure it will get better as it breaks in. We have no "power" issues...a drag racer it's not, but power is fine for everyday driving...yes, INCLUDING passing! If you are in the market for a "crossover" type vehicle, consider the Pacifica...you will be pleasantly surprised!

Had window gear replaced. Clicking noise in tight turns. Was told it was in transmission. Both were fixed and is still working. A air noise in sunroof is still there after two inspections. Service manager says he hears it. But they don't have a fix. So it is declared a "No compromise". I guess tha means they hear it,can't fix it, so live with it. Hard to ignore when it's right over your head. I have heard from other chysler owners having the same problems with sunroof on other models. Other than that I really do enjoy driving my Pacfica.

The vehicle sold itself. We got in it and just had to have it. I am 6'4" 270lbs. and I fit in the third row seat. Along those lines the 2nd row seats are just as comfortable as the front. My children love the DVD player and my wife especially loves the wireless headphones. We find ourselves fighting to stay under 65 on the highway due to the exceptionally quiet ride and feel at highway speeds. The power lift gate is a must with children. The only draw back is the small cargo area with the third row seats up.

The Pacifica gets 5 stars overall. It's safety ratings are #1 in all categories. The comfort and ride is luxurious and the standard options match most luxury SUV's on the market. The 3.5 6 cyclinder 250 hp engine can be added to for a better 0-60sec acceleration rating (currently at about 9-9.5sec). Maybe with an additional 25-50hp or a V8 option this too will improve. The vehicle does well with it's passing acceleration. As for price the Pacifica can't be beat since Chrysler added a $3,000 manufacture rebate. Many dealer will add to this with between $500 to $4000 in additional rebates making this vehicle the best buy for under $30,000!!

The Pacifica is a pleasing blend of European road sedan (Mercedes E-Class) and minivan. The interior - although less functional than a minivan - is much more luxurious. The vehicle steers and stops with the precision of an expensive sedan yet provides more interior space, flexibility, and comfort. It is a classy family wagon with safety and comfort first on the satisfaction list.

Our long driveway slopes from 20 to 35 degrees. So during snowy weather, two wheel drive vehicles don't stand a chance. The Pacifica's AWD goes up and down the hill with very little slippage and gives us confidence. (We had the dealer swap the OE tires with Goodyear Forteras) We have been extremely pleased with the comfort of the ride and the quietness of the cab. In fact those were the 2 main reasons we chose the Pacifica over the Pilot, which we found to be rather stiff and noisy on the highway. The rear seats are comfortable, even the third row is very sedan like.

Excellent safety rating - Saved our lives when my wife and I flipped it on the interstate after being hit twice by another driver. The ironic part of this story is that 3 days prior we traded in a convertible. The people who helped us out of the car were amazed we were not seriously injured (so were we for that matter). I completely reccommend the Pacifica - not only does it have the Mercedes chassy but it has got to be one of the safest cars on the road. We now own our second Pacifica.

You truly need to rely on your side mirrors almost exclusively.

She has many good points and I would tell anyone how great she is. She does have a couple of bad points, one being the blind spots, with the small back window. She is more difficult to see out of than the Chyrsler Limited. Also, we have had trouble with the tailgate opening when we are in a parking lot, even though it is locked. We put the keys in our pocket and look back to find the tailgate open. This could be a serious problem if there were valuables in the car. The light switches are difficult to use, because it is not consistant. Maybe I should have it checked. Over all she is a great car and rides beautifully, I would give her a B plus.

It also has a Great Rebate and Chrysler dealers are agressive to do business to sell one so they get on the road as they are new.

Awesome!!!!

Pacifica owner since June, I drive 500 to 800 miles per week in city and highway traffic. High marks all the way! A few more miles per gallon would be nice but averaging 18 mpg isn't bad for a 4700 lb car. Bottom line: Would I buy it again?... Yes, without hesitation!

Excellent!

I have owned my Pacifica for 3 months, and I LOVE IT!! I traded in a 1999 Land Rover and the difference in the two vehicles is phenominal, the Pacifica is so much better, in many ways! I even had my husband clean out our whole garage just so my Pacifica can have a "clean" place to sleep! Thanks, Michelle O'Brien

The Pacifica has excellent comfort, with ample room for my large 6 foot 3in. frame and is still very drivable for my 5 foot 2in. wife because of adjustable foot pedal height.The memory seat and foot pedals are programed into the key fob to work independantly for both our keys.Of course I do all the vehicle washing due to the roof height but its also permittable in car washes since the radio antenna is built into the rear glass. The freeway ride is very smooth and quiet the rear suspension with self- leveling shocks adjust quietly and quickly to accomadate friends or the trip to Costco. Kudos to Chrysler for overall perfection on my new Pacifica.

The vehicle is very comfortable to drive especially on the highway. I feel it is over priced for the following reasons. 1. Interior componets do not live up to a $40,000 car 2. Mileage is horrible, (does not meet window sticker) 3. Limited rear view (always feel as we are going to back into something or someone.) 4. Transmission shifts rough at times.

We loved this vehicle on-sight and bought it the first trip to dealer. Fun to drive and the ultimate in comfort. Love all the luxuries. Nav system is incredible. Easy entry and sits at the perfect height. Back window needs redesign, as it is impossible to see out the rear, especially at night. Weird waffling wind noise when driving with sunroof open or rear windows down. But overall, it's my favorite vehicle that I've ever owned. Very happy that we made this choice, and you can't match the features anywhere else for this price.

My new Pacifica is a dream come true. With a husband who coaches youth sports and two teenagers, I am constantly transporting kids from one place to another...and I am comfortable the whole time. There is plenty of seating room, the climate control really keeps the whole vehicle comfortable, the stereo is great (my teens love it), I feel safe driving in it, and I have received tons of complements on its exterior styling.

Great handling, looks and an interior that rivals any in any class. Nav and DVD a must. Mercedes handling with a 300M engine can't be beat. It's a must test drive.

We bought our Pacifica in August and were immediately satisfied. The smooth ride, roomy interior and 5 star crash rating are all that a family of 5 could ask for. We had to sell our Pacifica for financial reasons, but are back in the market for one at this time. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone that wants total satisfaction.

While I have only had my Pacific a relatively short time, I was impressed with the ride and handling from the moment I test drove the demo. It appears that the Mercedes partnership has begun to have a very positive influence on the Chrysler offering. I traded in a 300M and the Pacific is heads & tails a better riding auto.

Overaal we like this car, all the features we were looking for. The around town gas mileage is terrible!!! I don't think we have gotten 13 mpg around town yet (8500 miles)and that's w/out the A/C on. In the summer it was getting just over 10 mpg!!!! Ignore the sticker mileage on this one. If you drive mostly highway miles, it is a good car.. 20-21 mpg on the road. Unfortunately my wife drives it mostly around town. The dealer has completely ingnored our concerns on the mileage it is getting. We are looking to unload this thing or buy some gas stocks.

My new Chrysler Pacifica is a fun, smooth driving and good handling suv. However, when I purchased my vehicle I didn't notice that the Vehicle Information Center was either not functional or not there when it was supposed to be there. After looking through the manual and verifying that I was supposed to have a VIC, the dealership had to replace the entire center console within two days of owning the automobile.

The Pacifica is a great looking car and a wonderfully comfotable car to drive and ride in. Seats 6 adults with great comfort. This car sits a bit higher then most cars but not as high as an SUV making it easy to get in and out of but still offering a terrific view of the road. The car handles really well and drives with a solid ride. Very classy looks both inside and out. The gas mileage is reasonable for this car (I am averaging 18mpg in city driving) but it could use a little more power.

I purchased my AWD Pacifica in Nov.'03 and am happy overall. Driving it is highly enjoyable.Acceleration could be improved by reducing vehicle weight or increasing the engine output for better performance.Handling is where the Pacifica really shines.Very little body roll in turns & little squat or dive. Functionality is excellent with good versatility and ease of use for most controls.Entry & exit is good for front & rear passengers with wide & tall doors. The driver's seat incorporates an Easy Exit function (slides rearward upon key removal). My final rating is "A-" for this vehicle.

I am very satisfied with the Pacifica -- it handles well and is very comfortable with all of the amenities of a luxury vehicle. We bought it fully loaded and enjoy everything from the DVD to the leather seats. The gas mileage is better than our last vehicle (Jeep Grand Cherokee) and the ride is much smoother. Little things, such as the ease of putting the seats down and accessing the third row, make it a much better experience than we had even realized when we purchased it. All in all, a great vehicle at an amazingly low price.

I would highly recommend this as the family car for the new mellinium. It doesn't look like a soccer mom mobile, yet still has a lot of room. It is high enough off the ground so you can see better, yet not so high you have to mountain climb to get in and out of it. The quietness of the driving experience allows you to easily enjoy conversations with those in the second row( I haven't had anyone in the third row yet to test that).

My 3rd week of ownership. The finest vehicle I have ever owned, that includes BMW Mercedes etc No complaints. My 1st road trip 800mi was sheer pleasure. The all wheel drive handles well very predictable in icy and snowy conditions. Some have complained about power issues. I do not share that complaint. I live in mountains. Narrow twisting up and down roads are not a problem. It is extremely quiet and a pleasure to drive. The inferno red paint is a real head turner. Only problem is I had to spend $30 to get the license plate bracket to put my LSU Plate up front.

We went from a Suburban to the Pacifica. This car is fabulous! I refused to go back to a minivan. We were researching online and were looking at the Volvo XC90 and the Pacifica. We took one look at the Pacifica, did a test drive, and it was over! The Pacifica is a much better deal option for option, feature for feature! We have 4 children. It is amazing, but kid's don't fight, they have plenty of room, it is actually a joy to go on road trips now! We have 11,000 miles on it and get an average of 21.2 mpg!

I selected the AWD with heated leather seats as best for Wisconsin winters. After three months of winter driving, I found it to be safe, comfortable - a joy to drive even on slippery roads and sub-zero days. The stability of the platform on all kinds of roads and in all kinds of turns is outstanding. As to gas mileage, I knew going in that it was going to be about 20 mpg and after 1500 or so miles, 21 on the highway and 18+ in town are the rule. Likewise acceleration of a 2.5 ton vehicle is not that bad. I have had several Chrysler Vans that were a lot lighter and didn't do that much better.

It's a winner

To date this is the nicest vehicle I have ever owned. Just as functional as my former Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee but easier to drive, exceptionally luxurious, better fuel consumption and more comfortable for trips and going "out on the town".

Poor customer service

The car drives better than any car I've ever driven. Handeling is wonderful. Our problem has been service. The engine light has come on twice. The first time they could not locate the problem. The second time we waited forever on a part and was told by hte service manager parts are extremly hard to get. He said he had over a hundred cars that had been waiting as long as 9 weeks on parts.

Pacifica - PERFECT

What a car/SUV! I have 3 small kids, plenty of room. Unbelievable utility. Nice leather interior and set up. Plenty of options to move seats, use space for luggage and trips to Home Depot. Large roof rack for additional storage. No problems in ice and snow, quiet and very comfortable

LOVE THIS CAR!!!!!!

I only have this car for 2 weeks and 800 miles but I just think it's GREAT!!!! Ended my lease on an Infiniti early to get the Pacifica. I kept looking at other croossovers and kept coming back to the Pacifica....so glad I did. Very safe and solid ride. So many features I didn't even know about. Gas mileage is fair but hopefully will improve.

Nice Looking inside and out!I was very surprised it was a Chrysler. Drives nice, handles well. I do have a concern on the build quality. I'm experiencing rattles, and squeaks...something I have never experienced in the 5 yrs I had my Toyota.

Great car!

This is a comfortable, great driving car. We have been on several long (10 plus hour) trips with four children. Everyone is comfortable. We always get lots of positive comments on how nice looking the car is when we are out and about. We highly recommend the Pacifica.

Really like it but!!!!

Basically I am very pleased with the Pacifica except for one very disappointing imperfection. The suspension is noisy. Minor imperfections in the road, parking lots etc. produce near continuous background knocking or "thunking" noise from the suspension. As roughness in the road increases so does the noise to where a moderate bump can, but not always, produce loud "thunks" for lack of a better word. Only on the smoothest roads is the suspension quiet. Do others note this condition???

Pacifica--The car no one knows about!!!

The Pacifica has been a grand touring car. I have now owned it for 6 months and have taken numerous trips and used it a great deal around town and also have moved children to college. It is easy to drive, roomy and very comfortable. All the ammenities are ideal for my driving situations. Luxury is the key word for this car. The design, styling and details are amazing. Great job Chrysler! I have spent a lot of time presenting my Pacifica to prospective buyers. I love it and am proud to show others what they are missing.

We just got our pacifica. Tired of vans. Great styling. Extremly comfortable. Every one who sees it loves it. I'm really enjoying the car. Could use 300 ponies instead of 250. Like others have said, the power is ok though. Love the german engineering.

love it

The only gripe I have so far is the 4 speed transmission. It should have been a 5 speed. Other than that, I'm really happy with the vehicle.

We had 2 mercedes: the E-320 and the ML-320 (plus a pickup). We wanted to simplify our life by replacing the 2 mercedes with one car. We wanted a car-like luxury SUV. The Pacifica fills the bill very well. Overall quality is better than the ML and less than the E. Our son (with advanced degrees in art and design) says this is the best looking car we have every bought. I agree.

Best Chrysler Built to-date

After driving the Pacifica for the first 1,000 miles, I've got to say that this is the best vehicle that Chrysler has produced to-date.

This is definately the best car of its class, with amazing comfort and an outstanding engine. I would recommend this car over, lets say, the Lexus RX330. Remember, price isn't the main factor.

Very pleased by the luxury, performance and value of this car. Such a sharp looking car, with all the amenities and great performance, plus six truly comfortable bucket seats! So much more for the same price as European SUV's!! It's really the best kept secret around. Chrysler should advertise it more, because it has so much to offer for the price, including a top notch safety and driving experience. This is an amazing contender!

The fact that this vehicle is the "first of a new breed" is what I enjoy about it most. I find it to be unique, yet very versitile and practical. It has the ride of a car, with the convenience of a van, and the performance of a truck. It is attractive (a definite eye catcher) yet it fills all the needs, anyone could have in a vehicle.

NEW CAR THAT IS THE FUTURE
