I've had my beautiful blue bell for 8yrs and its a wonderful ride. I've had to replace motor mounts about 4 x's, but was also pulling a trailer or had heavy equipment to transport. My car has been maintained. It's been a great experience with my Pasifica. I loved it.

We bought new in 2005. We now have over 165,000 miles on the vehicle - and it is going strong. I must admit I was VERY nervous to buy this vehicle. The engine and transmission have been flawless on this vehicle. The one weakspot was motor mounts - replace 4 times! (but its a cheap fix). At 100K I replaced timing belt, struts, cv joints, and alternator (due to squeaky pully). We had to get a whole new exhaust at 130K. The car has been with us through kids elementary/middle/high school, and has been good to move the kids in/out of college. We even did a paper route with this car for 2 years. I'd say we got our money out of this car. We replaced control arms as a preventative measure this year, and the other remaining issue is the the engine subframe rust issue on these cars. In our case, I have been applying coatings to the affected areas - and keeping my eye on the rust progress. My take on this ownership experience is that with proper maintenance you can even keep a Chrysler (any car) going for a very long time. Update 09/28/2016: The Pacifica is still running strong with over 183,000 miles on the odometer. At around 165,000 miles we decided to replace the o-rings between the engine timing cover and the cast iron block due to a small coolant leak from the water pump passages. Since this work involved much disassembly, we decided to replace spark plugs, fuel injectors, water pump, timing belt, intake manifold gaskets, valve cover gaskets, all hoses, and the radiator. Since this work was DIY, labor cost wasn't a factor, and the cost of the parts was only around $800. We also needed to replace a rusty front subframe this year in order to pass Pennsylvania's safety inspection. We were able to buy a rust free subframe from salvage in GA. Total cost for replacement including our mechanic installation of 4 hrs was right around $1000. With replacement vehicles of similar size and feature costing over $30,000, we believe these repairs were well worth the money spent, and hope to enjoy another few years of ownership.

Good family vehicle

I purchased this car used at around 130,xxx miles and have driven it for 10 months, I had to replace alternator at around 148,xxx miles but I haven't had any major problems other than that. Car is safe and reliable.

1.Has great acceleration from dead start, quickly pickups speed from 50 to 100kmph for a heavy vehicle with a 3.5L engine. 2.If you worry about room, don't bother. This vehicle has enough room to seat your whole family or even turn into a mobile sleeping quarters. 3. A little pricey considering the poor fuel economy, well known transmission and computer issues which I have experienced all of. 4. Fun to drive, and easy to handle, maneuvering through all sorts of terrain and never leaving me stranded. 5. For an older vehicle the interior has a modern design to it, even better than most cars these days. Transmission broke down on highway, computer went a month later and more...

Excellent car with one issue

It was our dream! We loved this car over 4 years and almost 130000Miles! The only big issue we had - a motor exodus by 75000miles. No help from Chrysler (they want to replace the engine around $6500!) I bought a used from a scrap metal dealer and a local shop changed the engine. And we was happy again.

We fell in love with our Pacifica when we first got and would probably still love it if we did not keep having issues with it. First it was in the shop, free of charge, for most of the first 30 days we had it. The check engine light came kept coming on every 3 days after we bought it. After that we put in a new alternator. Now it needs new tie rods and ball joints. I was told we did not buy a lemon but a bad make/model. I am now trying to decide if we should put more money into it or buy a better make/model. I was told that the next issues could be struts and transmission. Oh, and the electronic seats and passenger air bag are messed up due to a one time change in positions.

Like many of the other reviews I have read, our car was fine for 1st several years - then nothing but problems. Brakes, Tie rods, Sub-frame rusted out, Engine mounts rusted out, Rear axle, Wheel bearings... Stay Away!!! I was interested in the new 300 sedan - but after all these problems, I'm streering clear of Chrysler again. We bought this car used in 2008 and in 2012 it is junk with just 86000 miles.

Bought in June 2005 in New Jersey, and only major expense has been catalytic converter needed to be replace. Just change my oil every 5,000 otherwise no problems. Driven across the USA from Boston to San Francisco twice. Thats 4 trips at 3000 each way. Gas mileage 23 hw 18 (all wheel drive) city. Note: cracked alum tire rim parking, need to replace full rim, very difficult to find. Car is discontinued, so premium for replacement approx $285. Still searching for better price new or used. Great car

We purchased our Pacifica in 2006 with 30K miles. It now has 118K. This has been a great car to drive. Our longest trip was from Southern California to Mt Rushmore. It has been super reliable and practically maintenance free. The comfort can't be beat. We change the oil every 3k or so miles and all has been fine. We had the brakes and the oil pan gasket changed. We are a family of three so storage isn't a problem. Our son, though about 5'6" still sits in the third row of seats. My only complaint are the blind spot on the drivers side due to the rear end being so wide and the noise when the back windows are down. Chrysler should put it back into production.

I purchased a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica. I've had nothing but problems. I've replaced the tire rods, brakes 2 twice, just last week spent $800 dollars on motor mounts, last year replaced the transmission $1500. Guess what, transmission is still acting up, took it back to the dealer and they said they could not find anything wrong with the car. They cleared the codes and the car ran fine until this past weekend. Check light engine is back on and you guessed it?? Transmission Torque convertor and front pump failure. Thank goodness for warrenties!!! otherwise it would be another $1500 if not more. Beware do not purchase this car, it is a MONEY PIT.

Bought a 38k model in 2005. On the 45 min. drive home (I-75 N) the accelorator began to surge & fail. About half way home it became clear that I would have to "CRAWL" the rest of the way in order to avoid an accident. Made it home called carmax. They asked if I could drive it back the next day. I told them I was coming back now (tonight). Got there right before they closed where I was lead to a 7 yr. old "rough" celica loaner. This is surely the ONLY $38,000 7 yr old celica known to ever exist. After a week of the dealer managment insisting that I "honor" the service agreement we had purchased the "DAY BEFORE". The newly promoted Pres. of dealership asked me to pick a equally valued replace

This car gave me so much anxiety because it always had some kind of a problem. My axel broke, burned oil, funny noises when turning, ABS problems,lights always burning out ( I finally kept driving it and it seemed to repair itself (abs problem)) always smelled like it was burning oil, Chrysler cs was horrible I finally went into the dealership in front of customers and voiced my complaint...they finally addressed my problems. I purchased this car as a family car and hated that I was stuck driving my family in this unreliable heap of junk. traded in after 2yrs took a huge loss not to mention repairs and traded in for a Honda Pilot . It feels good to drive a reliable car again.

We purchased a 2005 Pacifica in '07 seeking a car with a sleek exterior design, ample space for three children, durability, and good gas mileage. Unfortunately, the vehicle only met 2 out of 4 of our expectations. Though the first 2 1/2 yrs were trouble free, the remaining 2 have been horrendous! Despite performing regular maintenance, we've had to repair/replace sensors, valves, hoses, batteries, and the entire break system. Right now, the car is in the driveway in need of a new transmission...and it's only 6 years old! I beg you to save yourselves the trouble! Do not purchase this car! You will regret it in the long run. :'0(

Chrysler has ignored every issue from AC to brakes to accelerator sticking to loud clunking noises to car stalling and on and on. All issues are known to Chrysler and they refuse to fix them until someone is injured are dies. And they wonder why Americans don't buy US vehicles, poor quality vehicles.

Within 3 months of buying our 2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring we started having problems. First the rear brake sensors went out. This caused the cars brake pedal to grind when pushed, and sometimes, not stopping like it should. those were replaced at $200 each. Two weeks later, front sensors went out. Car has stalled 2 times while making a sharp left hand turn. Currently, front sway bar is bad, and causing a loud roaring sound while driving. I am not the only one having these problems, I've read HUNDREDS of reviews with the same problems. When is Chrylser going to do something about this?? What a waste of money buying this car!

Based on the looks compared to mini-van and suv options, my wife chose a red Pacifica Touring with 3.5L engine for our family car purchase in Spring 2005. We have owned the vehicle since new (now has 76000 mi), experiencing a few problems including 1) tie rod end replacement, 2) motor mounts twice, 3) blower motor (under warranty), 4) egr valve cleanout at 70,000 (relatively normal for many cars). Can't say I'm happy about making ANY repairs on a vehicle this new ... but in retrospect ... total repair over 6 years ownership is less than $2500. Yes, I too have experience the oil consumption issue. Using Shell Rotella-T 5W40 oil (1 qt consumed/3000 is ok for me).

I have only spent $400 on this vehicle in over 5 years of ownership. Timely oil changes and inspections have proven to be the key to good performance. I have the original tires on the vehicle at 72,000 miles. I plan on keeping the vehicle until I can get about 200,000 miles out of it. I can't figure out why Chrysler stopped making this vehicle because I continue to see a number of them on the road.

I bought this car in October 2004 thinking; wow this car looks so nice. And needles to say, it only looks nice. Ever since I purchased this car my bank account has dropped drastically. Front end changed 2, motor oil magically disappearing, rear cross member completely shot, this creating a nice 5k bill not including the new back tires. Front suspensions changed 4 times, Rack and pinion change both sides over 4 times. Now that I only owe one month to the bank, I will be selling the money pit. Hey I just purchase the 2010 Hyundai Genesis with their 100k millage warranty and 10 years. wow I love this Car, check it out

I accidentally stumbled upon this car at my 3rd dealership of car shopping. The sales guy said "lets just take it for a test drive. I wasn't planning on liking the car, and was just going to test drive the car for kicks, and then I was gonna leave, and go on to the next lot. And after I drove it, I fell in love with it. Although I had to replace the rotors and one brake pad, and a tire, (hopefully that will be it) I love the feel of the car, and there is so much more room than that of my Toyota Camry. I feel like I walked away with a great car. Hopefully I can say the same thing about it in 2 years. I will write more then! :)

In the 5 1/2 years I have had it I have spent less than $3,000 on repairs. An air conditioner blower motor, power seat motor on the drivers side, motor mounts and some transmission service.

I bought my 2005 touring model last year (2009). Although 4 years old when I got it with 79k on the odometer, bless the previous owner who obviously loved this car. In addition to the luxurious interior, comfort, quiet ride, great styling & road presence, I git it at a great price at $11,000 with 21,000 km left on the warranty. I purchased an additional bumper to bumper warranty for 2 years and never had to use it, thank God, based on some of the horror stories I've read here. The fact that Mercedes Benz had a key role in design and building this beauty is apparent in road handling and styling. Overall, I am very happy with my Pacifica or 'Fica' as my 5 year-old daughter lovingly calls it!

I bought the car in April of 09, I thought it was beautiful inside and out. It had about 33000 mi on it then and about 43000 now. I didn't have frequent oil changes because the car was constantly eating up oil. I couldn't figure it out, I didn't have any evidence of oil leaks in my driveway. But know that I have read some of the reviews I see that this is a standard problem along with cracks in the tires, the visibility issue with the pillars, and the noise that is heard when the back windows are down (horrible). I love my car, but I think I'm gonna take it easy on it until I can sadly trade it in for something else. I have had many lemon vehicles in the past, so I want out before it gets worse.

We bought Pacifica in July of 2005 brand new. Fell in love with it right away, needed a large car for the family. We follow the maintenance schedule of the car manual services like oil change every 3000 miles, etc. NEVER had a problem with it yet. Very reliable! NEVER had a problem with oil or anything else. The only thing would like to have different is a better mpg. Otherwise it has been a great car for us from the beginning.

We are very happy with our Pacifica and have owned it almost 5 years (80K) now with never an non-maintenance repair (replaced all rotors and pads from Brake Planet at 60K mi for under $200). Once a window quit working that was left open in the rain, but it repaired itself after a couple days. It cruises at 75-80 mph all day and gets 22-23 mpg, 60 mph gets 25-26 mpg. Town is 20-21 mpg. We have the 3.5L touring. We pull a 2000lb boat with no problems. It has a very sturdy chassis. We have noticed oil consumption, but as I read on here years ago, just check the oil. We change oil every 3000 mi. Wife is happy and never wants another car. Ours is a good one, others on here were not so fortunate.

Purchased car originally in Nov 2004. First time we purchased American and was really hoping car would last 8-10 years. Had all the maintenance performed at regular intervals. In Dec 2009 check engine light came on. Apparently a TSB for engine sludge if car is mainly driven in city (as my wife has). Now car bucks and hesitates. We've had it back multiple times and now have given up and purchasing a new one, as this is our people mover and the check engine light will not go off. Overall, the interior of the car was very nice. Seats were comfortable and material quality good, but after we had our third child, the 2/2/2 seating was a problem- although not Chryslers fault. Great while lasted..but

We bought a certified used car. It has had more problems then my 2001 Honda, and needed a new battery before the Honda. It is nice to have the seat warmers, DVD for the kids, but not sure the trade-off of having to take it to the dealership at least 2x a year is worth it.

I have had some many problems with my pacific. It started over heating in June 2009 and now I'm in the process of purchasing a new engine. It stopped on the highway and I had to have it towed to a repair shop. $4500.00 for new engine. With a 72 month loan, I owe $4800.00. Add $4500.00 to it. I'm convinced that Chrysler was aware of the problems and high maintenance. Oh, that's way it's no longer in production. Hum!

We bought this car new. One unique problem that was fixed even though the car was out of warranty. Headliner buckled and was replaced. No mechanical problems, it drives very nice and the ride is smooth. A problem common to all SUV's I've had is the side visibilty. Pillars make you have to look carefully. Highway mileage is over 21 mpg with air on at over 75MPH. No oil use like some others say. We have the small V6

I need to trade it

I bought this car in 2006 after renting one and trading in a 2001 Ford minivan. I thought that this was gonna be a long lasting relationship with this car but I have already replaced both axles, and in 2008 I stayed at the shop with it. Now I took it back about a week ago to the dealership because I heard a humming sound and no air along with water hitting my left foot. As soon as I can I am done with Chrysler cars.

Don't Buy! I bought this car w/ 27kmi & from beginning it consumed oil. They denied it was a problem for yrs. Had to change oil at 2500mi or it would run dry. Struggled w/ Chrysler to fix for years. Finally, at 80k, w/ a lot of screaming at manager. threats of attorneys, & 50 posts printed out of others w/ same problem, they looked into it further. Consumed 3/4 quart oil every 500mi after the first 1000mi. Finally they replaced engine. Mechanic said it was written all over engine. 3 broken motor mounts, exhaust leak, computer malfunction all not covered under top Chrysler extended warranty. $500 each repair. At least warranty paid for engine. Just dumped the car for a more reliable Toyota.

Should of done the research first!

We bought our Pacifica used in 06 with 28000 miles on it. Too good to be true.At 34050 miles The oil was completely gone, and there was one oil change done between that time. Good thing we bought the extended warranty. WRONG! Chrysler claimed it was our fault for not checking oil every time we bought gas. After months of fighting with Chrysler we had to give in and purchase a new used engine for $5500. We are now stuck with this car, we are so upside down its ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and upgrade now before its too late.

After my beloved '97 Explorer went into the shop yet again, I began to look for a new vehicle. My needs were gas mileage, interior room and ample storage. I liked the looks of the Pacifica and really liked the 25 mpg on the sticker. Well, the gas mileage runs about 16 mpg and it spent the first 3 months in and out of the shop including and a new transmission, abs sensor and on and on. Let's not even talk about the people I've cut off on the highway in the blind spot(s). Would I buy another? No way.

If you don't mind the possibility of engine problems then I guess this car is ok, but any Mfg that thinks it is ok for the engine to burn a quart of oil every 1000 miles is out of their mind! I don't like the idea of buying a new engine that we are now faced with since the low oil censor light also failed to work!

I bought my 2005 Touring Pacifica in June of 2005, and have love it ever since. I have put 95,000 miles on, It has not had any mechanical problems. It actually needs it's first repair, which is why I'm online looking for information. The Pacifica needs a EGR sensor. I only have one issue with it. With just one child at home now, I feel that it is too big.

My first Chrysler product - off-lease with only 20K miles! Overall we have enjoyed the car interior features, BUT: for the first two months I drove car only once - from a dealer, and the rest - car was in repairs; battery died (less than 3 years old); could not move a shifter from parking position – little plastic part got broken (under- engineered); engine light and "gas cap" message came on - EVAP system problem /leak; ABS light came on and stayed means ABS was disengaged - probably bad sensors; two tires started slow leaking air and tire-shop mechanic pointed out on micro cracks (expensive Michelin tires!); I lost my feeling of safety; customer service virtually not existed.

I have never written a review before, but am so upset with this car I chose to share with others so they can avoid the $ trap of owning this vehicle. First, the whole top end needed to be replaced after it started overheating repeatedly. Then the radiator hose kept dislodging due to 3 motor mounts which were broken. Then the air conditioning went out, and still isn't blowing correctly. Now?? It has the ABS sensors (all 4) being replaced, and I was told it may be more than that... Total cost?? with the extended drive train warranty?? Thousands... not to mention it is guaranteed to fail on you when you need it the most. Tow charges above and beyond AAA??--hundreds. I am stuck with a lemon.

I recently bought a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica under the impression from the dealers information that around town, the car gets 17 mpg and 22 on highway. I found by tracking that I'm only getting 13-14 mpg. When I questioned the dealer, they said it was a rough estimate. To me, 15-16 would be a rough estimate.

We've owned this vehicle for close to 4 years and have had many problems. Two ABS wheel sensors have gone bad & have been replaced ($150 ea). The EGR Valve went bad, but a $4 can of carburetor cleaner & a set of tools with 15 minutes under the hood fixed that problem. The EGR Valve would have cost about $250 at the dealer. Both rear windows needed the regulators replaced ($300 ea). The front left CV Joint needed to be replaced ($200). Most of the wheel bolts have broken off and needed replacement. Our gas mileage is poor 15 / 19 mpg. If this car was more reliable, we would really like it. It is great on long trips & has plenty of room. Now I wish Honda or Toyota had built our car!

After hours of internet research and days of test driving vehicles, I finally purchased the Pacifica. I'm so happy with this crossover, or is it a small minivan? Nobody really knows what to call it, but I call it awesome! It's so luxurious, sometimes I forget I'm not driving a high end sedan. It rides smooth, my 3 kids fit in it comfortably as well as my husband and I with room for our baggage. Posh extras like 1st and 2nd row heated seats make it truly the best bang for your buck. The only con I can think of is it's hard to see the lower part of the road clearly when you back up, so be sure to check behind you before you get in. I really love this car.

I was ready to trade my van for a convertible sports car but, with a teenage son who plays drums and needed transportation to college, I gave into a large capacity vehicle. I made a great choice. The Pacifica holds a ton of stuff while providing the feel of a luxury sedan. It drives great, has an outstanding dashboard and electronics inventory, leather, wood trim etc. I can also get 22 bags of mulch into it any time I need to.

We bought this car used, was only 2 years old, fully loaded and great price. Or so we thought. Within 2 months, the handle broke from the inside, repair cost $350. Then the wheel bearings need to be replaced, $400. The the radiator hose collapsed, replacement another $180. Now the car keeps overheating when in a stand still position, repair cost unknown. Anyone else having this many problems, we've only had it a year! Many blind spots due to design, is comfy inside and kids love the DVD. Would I buy again? Never! Sticking to Chevys or Nissans, those have worked out way better for me!

All the little details that Chrysler puts into some of their cars is wonderful. As other people have written, gas isn't great. But hey, it's big, it's AWD, what do you expect? I am very happy with it and mileage is about the same as my minivan. Finally I don't get asked if I have kids (no!) I waited a long time to have a car of this caliber and truthfully??

I bought our 2005 Pacifica at auction without much research but I was down to the Ford Freestyle and this. I like the handling and comfort though it has a little lag in power sometimes. The main reason I went with it is because this is one of the only cars or minivans that accommodates 3 children in car seats. with 2 in the second row and the third in the third row. The third row kid required a little assistance with clipping her seat for about 6 months, but I fold down the second third row seat and put her into the vehicle through the hatch. Overall I get about 18-19mpg in rural driving in the foothills of NC.

I purchased the car in April in exchange for my 1999 Expedition which was hurting me from a gas cost standpoint. The Pacifica has been very impressive. With the interior able to seat 6 and the exterior sharp look, it is a great car. I recently purchased some Kumbo Road Venture tires to replace the original tires. Well now the ride is excellent. I went on vacation about 670 miles each way and the car handled so well with great acceleration and braking power. If you are looking for the benefits of a big SUV with better gas mileage this is it. OH yeah the trunk can be opened and closed with the key or a switch in the car. This part is very cool especially when you go to the grocery.

The car is decent. Nice style and plenty of room for a family, but I must have a lemon. I have had my ABS sensors in all four wheels replaced 2 times and my axle has broken twice, for no reason, just city driving, to the grocery store and mall. The first time I had the problem with the ABS sensors the car was only a few months old and its happened every year. Now I am working on the 3rd time I must have these sensors changed and they have no clue why I keep having this problem. Of course, now the car no longer has a warranty and I have to pay for it. DESPITE the fact that the same work has been done 2 other times. Just beware and be cautious.

I loved the car when we first bought it, but have had the oil consumption problems that others have talked about. At 3000 miles, the oil is completely gone. The dealer replaced the top half of the engine, but the problem is still there. Chrysler said it is normal to have oil consumption like that. They said there has been issues, but have no idea where the oil is going. I had a 96' Jeep Cherokee that had 380,000 miles and never burned an ounce of oil. Seems to me Chrysler should deal with this problem. At 3,000 miles the engine clicks. I loved Chrysler vehicles, but will never buy another one.

The visibility on this car is terrible. Two of the ABS sensors went on it within 2 months of owning it. Anything you get on the seat stains because of the material. You cannot just steam clean it yourself. It stains worse. When stepping on the gas (at times) the RPM goes up to 4 and the car hesitates too much. I heard this is due to the new engines that have been put into these models.

I have been driving Chrysler products since I was 17 years old and am now 56, this should tell Chrysler how happy I am with their product. My family of four have always and will always drive a Chrysler. It is a shame that Chrysler will no longer be making this vehicle. Where is Chrysler head? Bring back Lee Iaccoca maybe he can make the big boys understand that this is what people want. This is a mid-size SUV and there is nothing else but the larger SUV-Aspen. Is Chrysler working along with the gas companies? For those of you with a Pacifica inform Chrysler not be stop making this vehicle.

I have only had this car a couple of days and I love it already. It has a lot of features for a 2005. I had an Infinit 2005 a while back with a lot of options.

I recommend this car to Busy Moms who don't like the look of the minivan, but want the room. The car has all the space of a minivan, with the class to go along. It can be used for soccer practice, or night on the town!

Great crossover!

I found a used '05, AWD with all the extras & only 14,500 mi. I drove it 2,000 miles home with no problems. A great, comfortable ride. A bit underpowered for the weight but that makes it more stable, especially in bad weather. The room inside is great for our family and all our stuff. Leg room in the 2nd row is wonderful. All the extras like DVD, sunroof, etc. make it that much more fun to drive. I even managed just under 24 mpg on one stretch. Not as bad as I expected. Overall a great family vehicle that drives like a car with all the benefits of an SUV and mini-van. If you want an AWD vehicle that isn't a box, has some style and is comfortable and fun to drive, then this is for you.

Great daily driver, pleasantly surprised

I leased this car 3 years ago and I'm due to turn it in next August. I got a great deal on the lease and I'm happy I got it. It's the very base model, no addon's and it's still plenty loaded. Power everything and keyless entry. The car has been fairly dependable. One of the tie rod ends failed and had a problem with the front passenger side airbag sensor. All fixed under warranty and the problem has not come back. The car is quiet to drive, has pretty good pickup and handles bumps in the ride just fine. It's not going to give race car performance around turns, but it's also not a sports car. I would consider another one if the lease price was right. But it's being discontinued...

I leased my 2005 Pacifica Limited in Dec 04 on a Chrysler 39 month lease. It’s due up in a few days and I am 100% satisfied with the Pacifica. There have been a few recalls but other than that… it has been flawless. The quality and drive have been great. I’ve owned and/or have driven most other makes and the Pac is equal to anything out there for the money. It stickered for around 38k so that puts in the same class as some Euro and upper Japanese makes which I think it is equal to in quality, fit, and finish. We have always felt safe (as safe as one can be on the road) in the Pac. Final thoughts. Great quality and safe car for a small to mid-sized family that likes to cruise in style.

I love the styling and the third row seat, but that is it! My biggest complaint is that it runs out of oil at 3500 miles. Chrysler claims that 1 quart every 1000 miles is within "normal parameters" and they can't seem to find my car's problem and claim it is "within their parameters". They voided my warranty after 3500 miles between an oil change which is over the recommended 3000 Miles. 3500-4000 between changes should be no problem. Yet this car was almost dry at 3500, 4.5 out of 5 quarts low! They see that a car may have a major problem and will find what ever it takes to not stand behind the vehicle. 3500 and it's void and your problem and your cost despite the $2000 warranty we bought.

I love the style of the car and all of the features are wonderful! The DVD/suround sound is also a good feature. Having 6 seats is also an added bonus, but with all of that being said, my car burns more than 1 qt. of oil in about 800 miles. This has been verified twice by the dealership and Chrysler refuses to deal with the problem.

My wife had a spinal fusion and needed a vehicle that would have easy ingress and exit, give excellent back support and have a smooth, smooth ride. The Pacifica fit the bill on all accounts. The seats are very supportive and adjust to any posture. The ride is buttery smooth, even over the most potholed of Michigan roads, but the car rides flat on curves- no rolling typical of a large American car. We are very impressed by the build quality and interior materials. No plasticky feel or cheap-feeling surfaces. On the downside, the gas mileage is pretty bad with a huge range- from 13.5 city to 22 highway. The sound system has a lot of bells and whistles but the sound is rather poor.

20,000, 2.5 years into my base Pacifica and everything is going fine. Very easy to drive, more than adequate pickup, good response and plenty of base features have made this car easy to own. Milaege is low of course and it's not easy to park, the doors seem like they are a foot thick! When my lease is up I'll consider purchasing this car.

As a senior citizen driving a 2005 Pacifica Touring AWD I thought I had found my ‘dream car.’ The car handles well, offers outstanding comfort and provides all of the options I could want. The fuel consumption is not outstanding but about what I would expect given the size of the car. The in dash GPS is nicely done with the exception of the maps provided. These are poorer than any of the three after market GPS units that we have in our other cars. Still I use the past tense in describing it as my ‘dream car’ because I began to have problems with oil consumption. I have since learned that Chrysler claims that using one quart of oil every 1000 thousand miles is ‘normal’ for their 3.5L engine.

It's a great vehicle for the mom that doesn't want to be a minivan mom. It rides fantasticly and the buffeting noise is an easy fix with a small adjustment in any window.

Car had two minor recalls for headlight harness and fuel control module. Waited for parts. Has never stranded us or not started. EGR valve replaced at 49,900 miles. Still have 50% brakes after 50,500 mi. Brakes are one of its finest features. They stop straight and true like a Mercedes. Vehicle is solid as a vault, but heavy which keeps fuel economy and performance from being rated higher. Goes fast on highway with no worries, tracks beautifully. Two rows of heated leather seat are best in the business. It really can seat six, but four are very, very comfortable. AWD kicks in on snow and is barely noticeable. Goes nice and straight. Utility of a minivan with lt more style. Volvo-like safety.

I've had my Pac for about a year and a 1/2 now and I can honestly say I really enjoy it. If you drive low mileage, this may not be the car for you. My mileage was great at 22 mpg when my commute was 20 miles each way, but now that it's 4, I'm down to 16 mpg. Aside from that, this car drives great. it turns so tight and smooth and it's responsive to the wheel and the pedal, with enough juice to get you going if you need to accelerate. More than a few people have told me that my Pac is a joy to drive. The guy that fixed my tire for me was like "I was tempted to just keep driving. That's a great car".

I have had this car for almost 16,000 miles and two years and have not had one problem with it. The Pacifica is a very solid vehicle and well built. The ride is what got my attention. This baby is a road cruiser and handles like a much smaller sporty car. This car rides better than my Cadillac. It sits high which is nice for easy entry and exit and view of the road. Five star crash rating brings in that safety factor I was looking for. The car has hauled almost everything from furniture to sheets of plywood with out any problems, very handy. The fit and finish are what you could expect from Benz or BMW. Well done Chrysler. Also get 18 city and 25 highway MPG.

This is a great car. It's quite a step up from a 92 Toyota Tercel. I love the crash test ratings on this vehicle. Makes me feel very safe transporting my family. The base model had most of the features I wanted, since I really didn't need all the extra bells & whistles. The all wheel drive has come in very handy in the Michigan winter. It is a very nice alternative to the minivan. I don't feel like a robot driving the same thing everyone else is. The fuel mileage is not that great, but what do you expect with a 4000+ lb. vehicle. Overall, I would definitely buy another one in a heartbeat.

Buyer beware with this one. We bought this car used for a seemingly awesome deal. Fully loaded, cd, dvd, nav, one year old half off of a new sticker. ABS is a real issue. Now you need to replace an entire wheel if a sensor goes out. That is $500 for a $50 part. General maintenance also adds up to almost another $100/mo. New tires, and I shopped this, almost $1000! At least I didn't have to pay for the recall issue, which the dealer didn't tell me about. Also, the air conditioning is not great. Nice ride, but not worth the cost.

She has never been stuck or had any traction trouble. the center row seats are heated and recline! My highlander lease was up this month and rather then get a new one I opted for the 07 Pacifica. NO REGRETS! GREAT RIDE. No problems. And my wife is happy i don't borrow hers any more, I can fold down the back two rows of seats and carry the things i could never fot in my Toyota. I can honestly say that the Chrysler Handles better in the rain and snow. and doest tend to nose dive when braking. as for power? AUTOSTICK is standard and give great performance!

I chose the Pacifica after looking at several other choices, and I have not regretted my choice once. I really love this vehicle; there's room for everyone plus room for gear. I chose the front-wheel drive Touring sedan (for better gas mileage) with the 2 rear captains' seats and the 2 way-back seats that fold down, rather than a bench back seat. I also have the better radio with 5-CD changer. We take this vehicle on vacation every year (a 13-hour drive each way), and I'm never cramped or exhausted when we arrive at our destination. Chrysler has a winner with the Pacifica. When it's time to replace our current model, I'll look for another Pacifica.

Regarding mileage I am not able to conclude the exact MPG as it varies between 14 in city to 20 in Freeway. In a trip all of a sudden the airbag light got on while driving. I did not get the answer for that yet. I took the exit and stopped the engine and resumed after a while. Other than this, the vehicle is so far the best value for money than other similar vehicles of expensive brands.

I like the pacifica, i think it's very confortable and drives very sturdy, almost better than my 03 camry sev6. But I've had numerous problems with the ABS light turning on. We're on our 3rd repair, and it always seems to be the sensor, although I think the problem lies elswhere. We also had a stalling issue only when cruising at low speeds, usually after waiting at a light, the car seems to be in 2nd gear when this happens, with a really low RPM perhaps causing the stall. The dealership adjusted the chip to idle at a higher rpm. Water also builds on the doors, and had to punch holes in the plastic drains, very strange. Other than that, car is great, but needs a better sound system.

My 4 children can watch their favorite Movies and we can listen to audio tapes or the radio at the same time. The navigation systems has saved me more than once from driving around for two hours. I appreciat the automatic rear door lift when carrying heavy items. I purchased my SUV a year ago and still I am impressed. Handles tight corners well, seat warmers are a must. This SUV truly rides smooth and comfortable regardless of age. Trunk is small, i miss the under the seat storage but love the curtain airbags for safety.

This car has it all. POWER, STYLE, Comfort,AAAAAAAAAAA plus. If you're a soccer mom who is tired of van after van, This ride is for you. I have three kids and have driven van after van for 11 years, boring. I bought my Pacifica a year ago , Know problems it rocks. Ill buy another one for sure. Drive it you'll buy it. Don't let your husband drive it or you will never get it back. ha ha ha. I used to build high performance cars many years ago. Stock it Rocks Snow driving used to be no fun. Now I have fun and saftey isn't an issue.

We have had our Pacifica for over a year and have a few minor issues but overall the car has fit our needs perfectly and I recommend this car for a small family situation. The Pacifica is very versatile. Long trips are a joy. Carrying our two dogs around is easy. City driving is ok with the higher point of view and quick acceleration. Great combination of style, comfort, and performance. We also had the cutting off problem. That was scary. If you have experienced this problem, IT CAN BE FIXED! Tell the dealer that the TSB# is 18-039-05. The condition only effects 2004's and half of the 2005's. Go the NHTSA website, reference ODI# 10159114 for more info.

We love it

Yes, this is a great car, fun to drive, nice size, a unique -now emulated- concept of an hybrid between an SUV and a wagon. Handling is fantastic and suspension outstanding. Finishing looks great but a closer look will tell you is cheap and poor. But the real problems with this car are its mechanical quality/reliability (a lot of small troubles) its guarantee (Only 36,000 miles and in most of the cases, you will have to pay for those small failures as they are not covered) and service/maintenance network (where they will drain your pocket with expensive bills, not covered by guarantee, if they really do what is billed)

Happy New Owner!

Just purchased the Pacifica after comparing to Highlander, Pilot and Volvo XC90. Love it! You definitely get more for your money with the Pacifica. A used XC90 came in a close second but after reading the reviews on Edmunds decided against it. We drove a Tahoe for many years and are now happy to find a "car" that fits our needs with snow, kids and sports.

Interior quality and appearance are superb. One of the best buys you can get for the space, luxury, and overall satisfaction. A definite must for anyone looking in this class of SUV

This is great looking car, but I am disappointed with the cheap material and poor performance/workmanship and low mileage. Front bumper is made with very thin plastic. I get only 13-15 mile/gallon. During winter time it gave starting trouble several times but the dealer fixed it after 2 visits but I am still having low mileage problem.

This car has about 17,000 miles on it already, and I can attest to its great overall quality and performance. However, we've had 3 major issues with the ABS system which have required repair at the dealership. The ABS light would come on, and then we'd experience some kind of brake force reduction or steering problems. The dealer told us that they've been seeing a lot of Pacificas for ABS problems. Other than that, it's been a VERY reliable car. I love the interior flexibility, the engine power/gas mileage combo, and the car handles kids and cargo with ease. I love its sharp handling and willingness to accelerate when needed, but the brakes also do a great job of stopping as well.

I didn't want a mom-mobile, until I got inside. Wow. Very luxurious, comfy for long trips. Fits a lot of stuff for camping and kayaking, tailgating, and all that fun stuff. The second AND third row seats are very comfortable and fit adults very comfortably. Granted, shorter adults will fit better in the third row, but it is by far the most comfortable third row out of all the SUVs out there. My only complaint is that they're becoming more popular, and it's getting harder to find my Pac in the parking lot... I'm already looking at getting a new one!

The Pacifica is stylish and fun to drive. With the onboard nav. system, at a glance of the speedometer cluster you can see the map without looking toward the center radio location as on most models. With fuel prices soaring, the average I get around town is about 20, and on a trip 28. There is power if I need it and economy too.

This vehicle is a quantum leap from older Chrysler designs. The interior is both stylish and functional. You can see and appreciate the European design influence on a formal evening out, and the interior room and practicality when driving your kids back to college. It's a bit sluggish in lower gears (leaving a stop light), but passing acceleration from 50 mph to 80 mph is excellent. Road handling and stability are outstanding. I am very satisfied.

I liked the ride better than the Jeep Gr Cher and for the price we got all the bells and whistles for what we would have pd for base Jeep. 3rd row a bit too cramped for adults. I hate it being compared to a minivan. We are mid 30s no kids and still want to look cool which I think we do. We've driven it on a few 300-500mile trips and was very comfy and handled great. Not a great veh if your looking for speed or off roading but was great for freeway and city driving. Last trip got about 24mpg. We originally wanted a Chry 300. Again, the interior of the Pac was much more comfortable and came w/ DVD, Navigation, Sirrus, H Leather, Snrf,auto liftgate,homelink and more for under base 300

I fell in love with this car for its safety and features. Well, it's been in the shop 3 times for problems with the upgraded sound system I bought. Now, it's going in because the ABS light is on and get this... the car just turns off when you go to slow down and turn sometimes!!! Also, I was on my way to work this a.m. and slowed down to turn, and the car sped up with my foot on the brake!!!!!!! I am infuriated. I won't drive myself or my 5 yr old in this car ever again. I read online reviews and these engine problems seem to be VERY common. They neglected to inform me of this when I bought the car.

I have had this car for 2 months and it stalls while I am driving. The power steering freezes and I cannot maneuver the car. It has happened around town and while I was on the interstate. I am fortunate I have not been seriously injured along with my 2 children. The dealership cannot identify the problem and therefore says that nothing is wrong. I am taking steps towards filing a lemon law complaint. I am trying to get help from Chrysler, but the customer service representative told me there is nothing they can do unless they can determine the problem.

Great hybrid of SUV and car. Nice luxury at a decent price. Purchased mine used with 16K miles on it. 10k miles later, I'm still pleased. Excellent fit and finish on the interior--not at all cheap. Had a couple of minor issues, but it's still under warranty, so they were fixed. Read the reviews here and all around before my purchase. Have 2 kids and they love having their own seats and cupholders. Ride is excellent-this car has the same rear suspension found on the Mercedes E-Class Good rear leg room. I've only driven imports for the past 18 years-first American purchase and I'm not disappointed.

My husband and I just purchased this vehicle a month ago and are in LOVE!!! We traded in a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee and do not miss it at all! There is no commparison. The Jeep had horrible gas mileage, very noisy and bumpy, and uncomfortable. We have owned luxury cars and to us this car is above them. The ride is so smooth, handling is wonderful, and overall a fun car to drive. I was a little hesitant due to my minivan phobia but could not be more pleased. You do need to watch carefully when reversing but that is the only concern I have. All our friends have also fallen in love and one is actually going to purchase the Pacifica. We highly recommend this car!!

So far the Pacifica has performed pretty well. My wife drove it for the first 3 months that we've had it but she has issues with seeing out the back. We just got a Chrysler Town and Country. I now drive the Pacifica. It replaces the Pontiac Grand Prix GTP that I have been driving for the last few years. The Grand Prix performed much better than the Pacifica but is no where near as comfortable as the Pacifica.

After about a year of car shopping, the Pacifica caught our eye. The reviews were "so-so" and I hadn't really seen any around. After a test drive and more shopping around, we agreed this was the choice for us. It's as dreamy owning one as I'd hoped. At first, there were blindspots in the rear corners, but now I'm accustomed to using my side mirrors and being more cautious (which is a good thing anyway, right?). Wish the gas mileage were better - wish ALL vehicle gas mileage were better! If you have a large family, this isn't your car (the second row seats fold up and you really don't want to climb over). We have a family of 4 and it fits like a glove. We can't wait to take a roadtrip!!

The AWD Pacifica is the best vehicle. I notice that it is missing from many reviews, and frankly I think that the reviewers are missing the mark on this one. This car is comfortable, is solid and responsive on the road and with the side curtain airbags in all three rows has the competition beat hands down for safety. When it comes to 5 star ratings, all ratings are basically in comparison to other vehicles in the same weight class. The physics of momentum and energy exchange, tell us that the heavier your vehicle is, the better it will fare on impact. Side & head air bags for all passengers is a necessary option for any vehicle. There is NO gov't rollover warning on the visors of this car!

I researched all of the similar vehicles on the market, regardless of price, and decided that the Pacifica was the best value for us. With all the amenities that it has, it feels like a luxury vehicle. I drive a Corvette in the summer, my wife drives an MR2 Spyder - we both love the way the Pacifica handles. Now, if it can just pull our boat this summer, we will call it a winner all year long.

To this point , 10,000 miles, I have had little or no problems with the vehicle. This is our 4th Chrysler and the only rap is with the gas mileage. I think the Chrysler engineers could have improved the mileage by changing the gear ratios as I have noticed the rpms are higher in the Pacifica than in my 96 and 01 sedans. Other than that, I think it's one of the sharpest SUV designs around.

This is the first new car we bought since our marriage 12 years ago. My wife wanted a 300C, but I wanted the Dodge Magnum. Finally, after consideration for our kids and long- distance traveling, practicality took hold and we "settled" on a loaded Pacifica, but what a great choice we made! I just returned from our latest trip to Eureka Springs, AR from our home in Oklahoma. The wife & kids had a great time but the most fun I had was driving on extremely steep, windy roads. I was astonished at how effortlessly the car took to the road. I passed several vehicles going as fast as they dared. I got 19.2 mpg for the 273 mile roundtrip, but 23.6 mpg on return leg by keeping speeds < 65 mph

Had WET battery replaced by the dealer five days after purchase with a "maintenance free" GEL battery by Chrysler. Every other component has worked as promised. Very pleased with this car. At 5,000 miles I Changed the oil to synthetic 10-30 Castrol SYNTEC Energy Conserving and have improved mileage from 15.5 to 17 for basic town trips. 22-23MPG depending on 65-70mph trips. Anything above 70mph will drop it down to 19-20mpg. Hauling 2,000lbs brings the mileage down to 15MPG. So far, this has outperformed the 97' "Full Time" 4x4 Eddie Bauer Explorer we had. It received 17MPG average with 18 max on the highway. Insurance is HALF! It handles better and does not wobble over a curb.

This car is awesome. My last two vehicles were vans (much to my 16 year olds dismay), and this gives van interior with a cool looking exterior. My teen is not ashamed to be seen driving this one! The interior feels so luxurious. We've only had it for a month and can't wait to take a long trip in it. It handles like a dream and I love all the safety features. Radio/CD/DVD/Volume control on the steering wheel makes it easier to change stations without taking eyes off the road (VERY important when a 16 year old drives). Wish there was more storage space when third row is up, but we are a family of five, so can leave one seat down. Gas Mileage is poor, but a safe and comfortable ride. LOVE IT!

I have owned the Pacifica for only 2 or 3 weeks, but from what I can tell there are only 2 slightly bad things about this car/SUV/mini van. I'll cut to the chase and not take up much of your time, the glove box is a little on the small side and I'm only getting about 20 mpg. Which actually isn't that bad on a big vehicle with most of the miles being driven in the city. However with the price of gas creeping up on minimum wage, this isn't the car for someone making minimum wage. The interior of this vehicle reminds me of a mercedes benz or a lexus, not the substandard interiors of the other american brand cars I have owned.

Have owned this vehicle for about two months now and I'm pleased with our decision. Did not need to trade but like this model since it was first offered. One gets the "Mercedes" feel when driving. Having been a Mercedes owner for several years when working and driving in excess of 50,000 miles per year I know the ropes. Only negative thus far is gas mileage which is around 16-17 mpg. Great safety feel and comfort. Most of the needed add ons are standard. Great vehicle.

My wife & I leased two '05 Chrysler Pacifica's in Feb. 2005. My wifes car is FWD and mine is AWD. Both are Touring Models. The cars are fun to drive. They hold the road well in all weather conditions. They drive more like a car than a Suv or Mini-Van. I feel my AWD model is a little underpowered off the line, but it does well in passing situations on the highway. My wife and I both have approximately 8,000-9,000 miles on our cars. Her FWD model is doing much better on gas than my AWD model. My wife is averaging 18.9 mpg combined city/hwy. As were I'm only averaging 13.5 city/hwy. Both cars have been in the shop for a safety recalls. My AWD model had control module replaced affecting the A/C

Awesome vehicle; good price!

I had no interest in the Pacifica; had heard nothing about it; wanted a Subaru....then I got inside...and then took it for a ride...It won me over! I needed some hauling space, but also wanted comfort for people riding in the back seat...and we even have a comfortable and usable 3rd row seat! Plenty of leg and seat room (for shorter adults, and still enough room in the trunk area for a cooler and some gear for 6 people. Excellent ride comfort; good for cruising the highway and it handles well on back roads. Fun to drive, comfortable, great looking interior, and AWD...hard to beat! Chrysler, who'da thunk it?

I did a lot of research before buying my 2005 Pacifica. I have never been so happy with a vehicle purchase. The Pacifica is great for my family and it's fun to drive. The kids love it. It drives smooth and so far seems very reliable. There were a couple of glitches at first..the back window switch had the window going down when I started the ignition, and the engine tension pully was squealing. All was fixed though. Overall I love my car.

I enjoy the car and unique style, but that style causes a problem with visibility. If you get the car get a back up sensor to assist in getting out of tight parking places. In addition the stereo system is a bit difficult to figure out.

This is the second year I have utilized a Pacifica as my primary car, having had the 2004 initial model also. Aside from required maintenance, only minor repairs have been required. The 2004 model needed a warranty covered computer chip replacement, and the 2005 had a recall to replace headlight wireing.

The vehicle has been outstanding. The true test was in February when we had an ice storm. There were 4wd vehicles skidding all over the road and the Pacifica went straight up the hill and my nerves were put at ease. This vehicle is so much fun to drive and comfort, comfort, comfort. I would highly recommend the Pacifica to anyone who likes to have the extra room with sedan comfort and quiet ride. I only wish we had bought one sooner.

The Pacifica was the perfect car for me. The ride and handling are really impressive. Most of my driving is inner city and my SUV handles like a sports car while darting in and out of traffic. The suspension is firm enough to corner well, but still smooth enough for the sunken streets and potholes of New Orleans. I have carried five full sized teenage boys across Louisiana to playoff basketball games in comfort. The rear seats offer ample head and leg room. The Infinity surround sound system and DVD player provides the highest fidelity of all the other autos I test drove. My 3.8L engines allows me to pass just about everything on the road but a gas station. I get 16/24 MPG.

I bought this car on July 29th and on August 5th someone was in a right turn only lane and merged left going 45mph into my brand new car! After the initial shock wore off and I looked at the car, it looked horrible on the outside but IF my girls would have been with me they wouldn't have been touched! The support in the doors are awesome! I was glad to see that whoever might have been in the back would have been fine and let me tell you, the impact was enough to spin me twice! I rate (for safety) it a 10!

I recently purchased an 05 Red FWD 3.8L 5 passenger Pac and have been very pleased so far. Those that knock the performance must be expecting too much. I transitioned from a Turbo Volvo S40 and I have been pleased with the performance. The car is assembled very well and exhibits surprising handling, comfort and has a quiet cabin. All in all a very satisfactory experience. I purchased mine by way of the dealers internet offer page. My price before tax,tag and title, 19,995! That included the beautiful red metallic paint and the alloy wheels. I think that at that price, my pacifica is a whole lot of car & value for the money.

Seating configurations (third row) are many and provide max flexibility. Intermezzo sound system is very nice. UConnect works great with Bluetooth enabled cell phone. Overall an extremely well appointed and full featured car -- great for a family of four that wants the option to ocassionally carry 6 passengers.

car is comfortable to drive but is very hard to see your surroundings when backing out of parking spaces and such. The fuel economy is terrible, only getting about 12 around town and 18 to 19 on the highway.The car should be great in the winter with AWD.

The I almost died part…. after driving 70 miles I got off the freeway and stopped at a stop sign when I went to go the car went and stalled in the middle of two lanes of a four lane state higway. I had two trucks lock up their brakes and I saw my life flash before me. Luckily they did not hit me and they just had selective hand signals for me. At first I though that perhaps it was my mistake. About 20 min later it did the exact same thing I stopped at a stop sign started to go and the vehicle stalled. I drove the car for another 130 miles and it did not occur again. The engine light did not come either time.

The ride is great and it handles very well to.I have had it on several long trips with family and friends and all have nothing but great things to say about it.The dealership was great,very helpful with questions concerning the car.The financing and rebates definitely help make my decision to get this car but the single most fact about this car that made my decision to get it was the safety rating it had.For what I got any other car would have coast thousands more.

The Chrysler Pacifica is really the only car that I considered buying when I began looking for a new one. It has great style, comfort, room and interior layout. My only complaint is the mileage compared to the EPA ratings. Not even close and I'm definately not over accelerating this car. Aside from that, it's a great car. I would recommend it to anyone but when asked what I don't like, I always mention the mileage. With gas prices at current levels, it's not a cheap car to run.

I think its a great car overall. It does have some mechanical problems off the bat such as faulty window switch and a noise under the hood that they cannot seem to find the problem. Overall a very fun car to drive lots of extras! The body design is nice as well as the interior color and layout. Not a lot of trunk space if using all passenger seats in back. In fact, one large suitcase is all it will hold.

I choose the Pacifica after the deal on my first choice, the Chrysler 300, fell through. I wasnt about to pay sticker for the 300 and there were fantastic incentives on the Pacifica and I only drive Chryslers. It has turned out to be a great vehicle. The interior is actually more stylish and more luxurious then the 300. The exterior is also very well designed and I feel the Pacifica stands out among the crowd of other crossover vehicles. Performance is not the best, it always feels sluggish. It handles well for such a large heavy car. I enjoy driving it. My biggest complaint is the fuel economy, its absolutely terrible.

When it comes to value, don't miss the value offered in the BASE model of the Pacifica. Add the leather package for under $2,000 and you have a wonderful and opulent ride you can own for something under $22,500. with incentives! The car looks like a million and is priced like a VW. As for ride, you wouldn't want anything better for a family vehicle. If you fold down the second row seats you can almost put a washer and dryer inside! The view from the driver's seat is all encompassing and there is NOTHING blocking your forward vision. With the base model you get so much as standard equipment why pay more for the higher priced models?

We traded an Isuzu rodeo for this car and are very happy. The car/suv rides very nice and the fit and finish are much, much better than any other american offering. The mileage is good and the engine feels strong. Only complaint is the view down the right side of the car since the rear end is cavernous. There is room to spare with the 3rd row of seats lowered. I lug around sports gear for kids and this thing is a joy to load and unload. The small touches done on the inside are nice and the dash is clean and easy to read.

This is the best tribe mobile I have ever owned. After a dozen years of driving Caravans as the family vehicle this is a great compromise. It rides as good as my friends caddy, has plenty of space and is fun to drive. Even after a year and a half the magic still has not warn off. My Vette is even getting jealous of the time I spend driving the Pacifica. Three the family members now own one. My father-in-law even got the same car, color and options.

This vehicle is gorgeous! However, there are blind spots I cannot overcome no matter how long I drive it. I've literally gotten out of my car to see what's behind it before backing out of a tight space. There are super creature comforts, but there is no place for a trash container. I purchased this to replace a Suburban, hoping to upgrade my fuel economy. Have yet to exceed 15 mpg. That is a disappointment. I'm a careful driver and don't hot-rod. Am unclear why the discrepancy of mileage vs. that stated on the window sticker.

Despite the name I love my 2005 Pacifica and without a doubt it's more car for the money then anything out there. Just do a Edmunds vehicle comparision and you will know what I mean when looking at 40K SUV/Crossover vehicles such as the RX 330, Murano, SRX and X3. Most of all the Pacifica offers in my opinion the most unique car approach to date as far as being truely a oversized wagon that maintains its sedan like poise, while emphasizing the "U" in both utility and luxury with its room for 6, power lift gate, wood and leather shifter, DVD player, 400 watt stereo, reverse park, 4 heated seats, Blue Tooth, HID lights and cargo capacity. The Pacifica is truely a 6 seater wagon with out equal.

I have had my Pacifica since 2/1/05. I have about 1,900 miles on it now and I LOVE driving it. I had a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee which I loved, but wanted more luxury inside a better ride and better handling, with All Wheel Drive. "BAM" out comes the 2005 pacifica to fill the bill. This has to be my most favorite vehicle to date. It does all the SUV and Van things, has almost all the goodies you could want, but it looks and rides like an expensive luxury machine. Dare I say Mercedes ? Easy enter and exit, awesome leather interior, as much cargo room as my jeep with the third row seats down and super handling on snow and icy roads. THUMBS UP Chrysler..

Finally a vehicle for those of us that want SUV like qualities, but car like looks, ride and comfort. I have had my Pacifica for a month and 1/2, recently trading in my 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I loved my Jeep functionality, but did not like the ride or the handling. In comes the Pacifica... a more stable, better riding and handling, super comfortable SUV like vehicle. I do not miss my Jeep at all. This is one awesome AWD vehicle. Handles super on snow and slush covered roads as I recently found out ! Very pleasent suprises are the comfort and quietness, along with all the goodies on the Touring package. To top it off, I am getting better gas mileage too. Well Done Chrysler !

Traded in our 2000 Chrysler 300M for a 2005 Pacifica. Very happy so far with the Pacifica. It has all of the luxury and power the 300 had with some extras like a better ride (yes) and a more solid feel. With the side air bags and the excellent crash rating, this is one of the safest cars you can buy today. It is not top heavy like most SUVs and is much more versatile. It is not a mini-van so it does not have a caverness interior, but for four adults and two children, there is plenty of comfort. You may have to give up the third row seating though for luggage storage when traveling long trips. Getting 17 MPG in the city and 20 on the highway.

It's the BEST!

I just recently purchased this car and I'm in heaven - I LOVE to drive it!! It is extremely comfortable, has a ton of power and rides very smooth! It's loaded with extras like steering wheel mounted radio controls, dual zone climate control, programmable garage door opener - lots of storage space in the center consoles, too. The third row seat has plenty of room even for adults which is unusual in a crossover or SUV. The step in height is great which makes it easy to get kids in and out of car seats. The only thing I wish it had standard was a back up sensor - the visibility from the back window is less than I'm used to.

This is the most practical vehicle I've ever seen. My wife didn't want a minivan and we didn't want to deal with a huge SUV, this was a perfect marriage of both. Lots of room, rides like a car and built like a tank - it actually gets decent gas mileage. Chrysler really needs to market this vehicle a little better - there is nothing like it out there.

This is a well planned vehicle from bumper to bumper. There is nothing that is not within easy reach of the driver. The options are super, with the GPS put in the proper spot, right on the speedometer display! Seats could fold a little flatter, but the third seats drop down very easy. We have riden with 7-8 passengers. Eight is a little tight, but no one complained. I have looked at them all. This car, known for its safety, has all the extras of a luxury car.

I've only owned my Pacifica for a month, but it's a joy to drive. After driving a Jeep Cherokee for several years, the ride, handling and comfort of the Pacifica are excellent. After being injured in a side-impact taxi accident last October, it's also reassuring to drive the Pacifica with its 5 star crash ratings. The rear area provides plenty of space for my 2 dogs in their crates.

This SUV drives and handles more like a car but has a SUV feel. Easy to navigate, comfortable on trips but needs additional stowage behind 3rd row seat. Fuel economy is accurate except in mountainous terrian. Is pricer than a Van with fewer passanger space and stowage area. Improve 3rd row seating to accomodate adults.

We purchased a FWD base Pacifica about a month ago, to be the wagon for my wife and myself. We had considered several $25-30K competitors (Volvo and Volkswagen wagons, Hyundai and JEep SUVs), but the PAcifica won out because: 1. It's got enough room to put just about anything in its range to shame. 2. It was much more of a car than the SUVs we test drove. Its handling, particularly considering its size and weight, is very impressive. 3. It's flat out a lot more luxurious than a Volvo or Volkwagen that costs more. We take a lot of highway trips, and the Volvo V50 in particular seemed a bad highway car. The Pacifica's seats are great, and its visibility is excellent for a taller wagon.

We were attracted to this vehicle because of it's beauty. However, from the driver's seat, I could not reach out the window comfortably without undoing my seatbelt. The front is so compact, purses, bags, etc. are literally under your legs. I had trouble juding distance from not being able to see over the dash very well. The back row was general kept down for storage. However, if we suddenly needed space for another passenger, we had to unpack and lift the seats, which was very awkward. My daughter could not rest on long trips, because the seat would not recline all the way to sleep because of the back row being laid down for luggage.

I was skeptical about purchasing an American car but I took a chance. It was SNOWING in Vegas when I bought it. I was kicking myself when I drove off the lot with a brand new model with no track record. So far its worth its weight in gold. This car drives like a dream. Acceleration is adequate and more so with the use of midgrade octane gas. I drove from Vegas to Santa Barbara in pouring rain and the Pacifica did not fail me. I felt Safe. The AWD is excellent. The AC system is overwhelming efficient. The car has toys for everyone. Sunroof for me, Navigation for hubby, DVD for baby and Gaming hookups for Jr. Cheaper to insure than an suv, and it finally got recommended by consumer reports.

Enjoyable ride for a family car

We purchased the Pacifica 5 months ago because of its interior room and styling. With 3 children (ages 15, 16, 20), we needed something that was comfortable for a family of 5 adults and the Pacifica delivered comfort for all. It has a very smooth ride and the handling is outstanding, especially for a vehicle that large. The feel on the road is solid. Acceleration from a stop is not impressive, but once the car gets moving, acceleration is excellent. Cargo space with all of the seats in use is limited, but each of the 4 seats fold out of the way independently, giving you lots of options. Gas mileage is consistent- about 19 mpg in mixed city driving. There have been no reliability issues

We purchased the pacifica two weeks ago, so I really can't speak to it's reliability, but so far we are happy with it's handling and comfort. We have the front wheel drive version and it seems to handle well in snowy consitions. The inside is roomy and makes tou feel like you are in a much larger vehicle. As we have found with most Chrysler vehicles the seat belts are difficult to find and release.

The Pacifica offers more room & comfort as well as it handles and rides better than any vans or SUV's I have driven. Another plus is the body design, it can even make those of us in "40 something" age group still look good.

In first 1000 miles had to take car back 6 times to get "Free DVD" system to operate correctly. Car came with DVD in dash from factory and Dealer advertised "Free DVD Monitor" with sale. What I was not told was the monitor was not going to be a Chrysler unit but a cheap aftermarket. I found out the hard way that it does not turn off when folded back up and the key is off. Had to jump car twice before found out what was running battery down. Also had Uconnect system installed and its phone book feature does not work very well. Uconnect does a good job of receiving calls but makes entering items in the phone book very hard.

It has been over 10 years since I have had this much fun, driving a car. My husband purchased my Pacifica in Sep 04. He purchased the model which had all the options I wanted. The adjustable gas pedal allows me to drive with a safe distance between me and the driving wheel; the rear seats allowed my parents to ride comfortably on a long road trip-no leg cramps for my mother. My second favorite option is the liftgate-remote control, hands free. Comes in handy when shopping. Having the controls on the wheel has allowed me to keep my eyes on the road, while I adjust the volume or change CDs. Within 10 minutes of driving, my husband, the passenger, falls asleep. The Pacifica is a true joy

I've only put about 5,000 miles on so far, including one longish trip, but every mile has been a delight! It's the perfect blend of sportiness, convenience, comfort, style.

I've driven 3000 miles and I am extremely happy with this auto. A third of these miles have been driven in bad Winter weather. The Pacifica with AWD has handled these Winter condition better than I expected. Far better than my previous SUV. The road handling is exceptional. I have never felt safer in an automobile. The engine power has incresed substantially since the first 1500 miles. It has plenty under the hood. I do not understand the reviews that complain about the lack of power. I drive on hilly roads and the Pacifica has plenty of get up an go. I have averaged 19.4 MPG after the first 1000 miles. This is all Winter driving with a mix of city and highway. Not too bad.

This car is wonderful to drive. I wish I could have a better than 20 mpg average but I do a lot of town driving. Not as economical as I would prefer but the overall performance is great. I have been an Acura 3.5RL driver and I was not sure that I wanted a Chrysler when my husband insisted that we get this car. But we have been very pleased with the Ltd. that we purchased. We did order the bigger wheels and the car is loaded with nice features. Performs well in our wet weather and am very glad we got the all wheel drive model. Roomy for us and our dog (which is why we went to the wagon and sold our Acura) and all of its necessities for traveling. Very roomy for suitcases, etc.

Fuel economy stinks! Major complaint... poor rear and side visibility.While looking at the lane to the right of the driver in an effort to move from the left to right lane, visibility is so poor to the point of being dangerous. Storage space is VERY limited when back seats are up. Already had to have the control arms replaced (covered under warranty). Also had to have the front seat belts replaced due to a terrible onion smell on the belts due to a chemical reaction between the seat belt material and foam inside where the seat belt retracts. When I push my electronic seat programmer it changes the radio station! Yet to bring that one up to the dealer! Otherwise, car drives well and looks good

Traded in an Audi A4 Avant because I needed a bigger car with the addition of a new child. Read all the reviews, test drove the VW Passat, Volvo XC and Audi A6. The Pacifica just has so much more room and functionality and, suprisingly, it's darn fun to drive. It doesn't hug the corners like my Audi did, but that's little sacrifce based on what I'm gaining. This car has done very well in the snow with all-season tires but I do plan on getting snows for next winter. If Chysler's quality sustains itself over the next 3 years, I will easily lease another one. Right now, I have nothing bad to say about this car based on 1 month and 1000 miles. I love it.

Just picked up our 05 Touring edition. Very pleased with comfort, styling, handling,and looks. Lots of bells and whistles in a versatile package. We only have one car, so this was a perfect combination of safety, style and function for us. Could be described as a luxury car in an SUV body that handles like a sports car. Built on a Mercedes frame, its perfect for those who want a luxury car that can carry more than four people. It can do this without the stiff ride and top heavy features of a truck body SUV or the stigma and poor handling of a mini van. Acceleration is fine, ride is smooth and solid, with long wheel base and large tires. Highly recommended.

It handles like a dream, is extremely comfortable and it is beautiful inside and out. It is also highly functional as an SUV without losing any of the luxuries and comfort of a sedan. I have had people stop me on the street and ask me about it. And my son ... the car snob of the century says "it's tight." There is no higher praise than that :-).

My wife leased a 2004 Pacifica and she loves it. The only problem is that I never get to drive it. I took care of that problem, I just leased a 2005 AWD Limited Pacifica. Now the problem is keeping her away from my Pacifica! I just went to work for a new company and they let me chose any vehicle that I wanted, I didn't even have to think about it.

I bought this car for my wife as safety and cargo were two of the biggest concerns when we were shopping. I can't believe how quiet this car is when driving on the road. Our baby loves it and falls to sleep the second we drive off. The grip to the road feels tight and acceleration is smooth. The car does not feel large and also sits higher than a regular car (not as high as larger SUV). Gas mileage is adequeate at best and fortunately only requires regular. We now have 1,350 miles and are averaging 14.9/gallon. I hope it gets better as the car breaks in more. We know two other couples who have since bought the car.

We've owned this car just over two weeks, and we love it. We still have lots to learn about this vehicle, in terms of manipulating all of the controls which are readily available at your finger tips from either front seat. The overall interior design is excellent, with only a couple minor exceptions/possible improvements. If you have kids and you don't like minivans, you need to look at the Pacifica with 3rd row seating. From the standpoint of vision, the Pacifica feels more like a SUV because you sit higher than you would in a sedan, but it drives like a sedan. As a driver you feel safer, but not intimidated behind the wheel. Backing up in tight spaces is taking some getting used to.

Lots of blind spots. Water gets caught behind rear wheels when heavy rain is present . It has caused us to lose control of the car on I-95 more than once. It is quite frightening to be "out of control" on a road that doesn't have good drainage. I wish that I could terminate my lease because I don't feel safe in "America's Safety Utility Vehicle"

I love driving this car. I love the fact that every feature in this car helps you feel at comfort. The 10 point seat adjuster, power mirrors, radio stations, and pedals can be set, so that if there are more drivers your personal settings are not lost. I love the fact that the Pacifica has a unique look. It does not look like a van but has a lot of room inside. The Pacifica's 6 cyl 240 horse power gives you a great pick up when needed, and the AWD helps all season with rain and snow. I also love the extra room for the kids and other family members when you needed. I feel safe driving the pasifica,with side airbags. I feel that this vehicle is the ultimate safety/traveling SUV this year.

Mine is an early model produced in Nov. 2003 currently with 17,400 miles. A good all purpose vehicle that has been very reliable with only two minor warranty items (brake light and right side mirror automatic adjustment) repaired. Very comfortable on long trips with reasonable highway gas milage of 22-24 while averaging 75+ mph. Handles well around town with somewhat disapointing accelleration and gas mileage of 16 -17mpg. Well appointed but some parts rather cheaply made.

Loved the vehicle when we first got it. It is a great road car and fun to drive. The problems are the dealership and the car company. The unit has experienced electrical system problems and been back four times. the dealership failed to address the issues and told my wife to drive the car with a bad alternator because they were on national backorder. When we complained they fixed it. When we filled out the customer survey the dealership employee literally attacked my wife on her next warranty visit. Chrysler was notified and did nothing. Won't buy another Chryser product

I had to give up on my beloved Cadillac Sevelle. 1985 it's 20th birthday. How could I find another car to love. My wife has been driving our Dodge coversion Van and is used to it's high/big ride and I the big driver's seat confort of the Caddy. We didn't want another truck/SUV. She suggested a cross over veihicle. We looked at the Murano, RX330, FX35. M-class 350 but I needed to see the Motor Trend Car of the Year the 300M. Well right next to it was the PACIFICA and we both fell in LOVE. This was it. Everything we both wanted, everything we needed, more than we expected. Beautiful, comfortable and a thrill to drive. We're like kids again and just want to drive for the sake of driving.

I started my trip from texas and brokedown in ind., With a grinding in the right front wheel. The dealer said that i should not be driving the car, with 3000 miles on it. They gave me a rental but was without the car for three days because they had to order the whole front wheel. We also had water dripping on my wifes foot from the air. Cond. They replaced the filter and filter door. It is still leaking with 9,000 miles and the dealer said that i should change the temp. In the car to correct the problem? We also had an emissions pump go bad with 8,000 miles and had to spend four hours at the dealers waiting for them to get the part from some other dealer.

Love the car, but did not get it with the map built into the dash, so they installed another model. It opens up in front of the heat/air controls so that the sensor doesnt see the people, it sees the hot back of the display and turns off the heat. Would not do that again, but otherwise love it - took it on a 2700 mile spin last week - fun car. Hank

MY PACIFICA GIVES ME THE SAFEST FEELING I HAVE EVER HAD WHILE DRIVING. WITH ALL OF THE AIRBAGS AND THE LOWEST ROLLOVER RATE OF ANY SUV, I FEEL SECURE WHILE DRIVING. IT FEELS STURDY, HEAVY, AND STRONG BUT GETS GOOD MILEAGE. IT IS EASY TO STEER, FITS WELL IN PARKING SPACES, AND HAS LOTS OF CARGO SPACE WHEN 3RD ROW SEATS ARE DOWN. IS MUCH LARGER BOTH INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR THAN IT APPEARS. INCREDIBLE SOUND SYSTEM. ONLY PROBLEM IT HAS BLINDSPOTS ON BOTH SIDES WHICH ARE CORRECTABLE WITH SMALL CIRCULAR MIRRORS PLACED ON EXTERIOR REARVIEW MIRRORS. MY KIDS LOVE IT ALSO AND THEIR FRIENDS THINK IT IS A COOL CAR.

I wasn't certain at purchase how I'd adjust to this vehicle. It seemed to be more than I needed. In my first 2 weeks, I have come to love this car and it's qualities. Stunned by the tight turning radius, the comfort, lack of road noise and the smooth handling. There's plenty of pep in the V-6. This car has the feel of safety and old style craftsmanship, heavier steel, thicker glass, and design that is literally "solid" in it's touch and feel. So far, an excellent ride.

I traded in a Nissan Pathfinder for the Pacifica and feel the Pacifica is a much better value. The comfort of the ride and the handling are much better. I also feel the standard options and price are much more competitive then the Pathfinder. The Pacifica is also much cheaper to insure because of its excellent safety record. The Pacifica does seem, however, to lack acceleration despite the 250 HP engine.

Don’t understand why people complain about gas mileage. THERE IS A HUGE STICKER on the window with HUGE numbers on it that shows the gas consumption. I don’t buy people’s complaining about it. You pretty much know what you are buying prior to close the deal. Want a better gas mileage? Buy a Honda Civic then. I love my Pacifica. Love everything it has. No complain as far how it handles, comfort, luxury, happy wife (that is what really counts). Only one thing to improve though: blind spot. Not a big deal for me. You get used to it after a few back-ups. No needs for sensor or anything, but I know that some people might need it.

There is only one suggestion to improve this vehicle: Add a standard "Parking Assist' Sensors due to the lenght of the vehicle. This is a MUST feature for this car Not an option). Fuel efficiency is not that great in the city, however we noticed a remarkable difference in the highway, specially for long trips. Great car, extremely confortable, nice to look, great to drive. After driving an Explorer and swearing I would NEVER buy an American car again due to the nightmare witht he Explorer, it took the Pacifica test -drive to reconsider (But never a gain a FORD!). Just an the Parking Assist sensors and I will buy a second Pacifica!

The exterior styling is appealing and with 19 inch wheels, most appealing however, the chrome clad could be replace with just regular alloy and look much better. The engine at 250 hp is adequate only, the overall weight at 4700 # is excessive and does impact on performance. The 4 speed transmission should probably be a 5 speed or offer a Hemi * 8 that allow for more hp and torque but the mileage of 16 mpg is already too poor. Overall, the interior with leather is adequate, however, some inetrior appointments could improve a bit too lean on style and comfort. Stereo system needs improvement and allow for better adjustments. Speakers are needing much improvement and placement is not ideal.

I was happy to find what I was looking for in an "American" car. Style, room, and most of all, the type of ride I expect from any other expensive vehicle. The price is right, and the extended warantee was well worth the buy.

I purchased my Pacifica in June of 2004 and have been delighted with it ever since. I took it on a trip to Canada to visit family and the mileage was almost 28 mpg. With Canadian gas at roughly 4 bucks a gallon this meant a lot. It is a good looking car that's fun to drive. It's got some head turning looks, too. My only complaint is that the rear window should be wider.

My wife loved it the first time she saw it, up to now you couldn't pay me to own a Chrysler. We went on vacation in June and the Pacifica was available as a rental. I figured we'd drive it for a couple of weeks and that would get it out of my wife's system. Then we could get on with buying something worth owning; like a BMW or a Mercedes. I have to admit we both liked it, It just seemed a little plain. We held off till August to look at a 2005. The dealer was able to get us everything we wanted; color, interior, nav system, dvd, air-bags, etc... We've put 5k on it so far. The ride is great, performance is good, I like it more every day.

I have to say after reading the previous reviews I am struck by the fact people writing the reviews either seem to love or hate this automobile. I find it to be a fantastic car. More comfortable than my wife's E-class Mercedes, better features and far more reliable. I really can't think of a thing to say negative. Some others have complained about the MPG but, I find that a little silly. This is a BIG auto with a 250 BHP engine. What do you expect??? 17+ MPG in town is rather good. Great highway car, like riding a magic carpet.

Did much research prior to buying and just finished the 300 mile break-in. I think it is a beautiful blend of comfort and style. Drives nicely and ride feels good, but does lug a bit when picking up speed at on ramps. It is a large car, but I feel extremely safe in it. I love the many features it has - it seems to me everything you can imagine. The first time I test drove I felt some knobs etc. seemed a little cheap even though they looked nice but was comparing to a friends 150K mercedes sports car, so go figure. I'm liking the whole package and the leather interior is very nice! I do park further away to make sure I can exit easily! Will update review after a few thousand miles.

I think it uses too much gas but is very comfortable to drive and sitting. Very stury and heavy car. Needs more power though.

I love my new Pacifica. When they first came out, I was not happy with the body. But, once I went to the dealer and checked it out, I fell in love with the vehicle.

This Car was in the Dealers Repair Shop for 16 days straight trying to find out why the battery went dead and would not start the car... They finally replaced the Dashboard Cluster Guages... Along with all the Safty Recalls and all the other Problems with this Car I`m Filing Under the State of Iowa`s Lemon-Laws to get rid of this thing..... I`m 62 years young and have had 6 NEW cars and 2 Program cars... Of those 8 cars I have never had So Much TROUBLE with a car as I`ve had with this CHRYSLER PACIFICA it`s been a PAIN...

I love It.. Drives like hgh end auto

I was looking for a vehicle that was an suv that I didn't need a ladder to get in. Drove a lot of the 2004 models, They all had the suv dumpy ride on the passenger side and back seats with the exception of the Acura and Cadillac. Lexus is far too small for more than 2 passengers until you go to their very high priced model, found that with most I tried. I didn't need or want all the bells and whistles except safety features i.e. air bags. The Pacifica Touring 2005 is perfect for me.

I am in a love/hate relationship with my new car. I have had it less than a month, the bells and whistles are terrific. It doesn't have very much pick-up when you need it. But the biggest problem is with the front seats seat belts. There is such a terrible odor that we have to wrap the seat belts with towels just to drive the car. It leaves the foul smell on our clothes. The dealership has been "working" on this for two weeks now. STILL WAITING... P-U!!!!!!!

We have enjoyed our Pacifica on three road trips so far this year. It's one of the best road cars I have ever owned. It's a terrific ride in comfort and style. I'm not as happy with the gas mileage, but the rest of the things we like makes up for it. It's a great trade off.

A classy ride

We really enjoy the car and were delighted to experience about 24 to 25 miles per gallon with the Font wheel drive. We were also pleased with the performance in Minnesota snow. We have had many compliments on the vehicle.

Comfort and options are very nice but apparently has a common problem that DC refuses to address ..... a hissing/spitting sound that telegraphs across the front of the vehicle when the AC compressor is engaged. Without masking noise (radio,etc.), it is like a "mosquito flying around your ear". Never had this with any other Chrysler product ('98 Intrepid ES, 2001 Town & Country). Even the most inexpensive Dodge Neon doesn't do this.

Love this car

Traded in a 300M and can't believe the improvement in the build quality between the two cars. Excellent ride, very comfortable, and easy in and out. Compares favorably with MDX and Murano but when you include incentives this is the best deal on the road. My wife and kids love this car.

Pacifica has the SUV/truck versatility that I need, while having a luxury ride of a sedan that I want. No more "climbing in" to the car either. Handling of the car is great. Everything needed by the driver is easily accessable. Feel safe in the vehicle too! No complaints from any rear passengers - comfortable ride all around. Gas mileage actually getting better the more it's driven. Not looking for a car to race around in, rather getting a car with more comfort was my goal. Try the car...I think you'll like it!

piked up my 2005 Pacifica on July 1 checked over the car and found it to be in excellent condition,fit finish ect was very good was very inpressed with the quaility of the exterior finish,the interior was good but I found that the materials were somewhat cheap looking for a ar of this price range. The engine could use more power still too early to tell what kind of fuel mileage but it seems to be fairly good. Outside mirrors should be larger and there are no conoring lights,HID lights could not be ordered for 2005,I was also not impressed with the upgraded audio system,only problem that I found was a loose button on the radio.

I adore my Pacifica

This is the most comfortable vehicle I have experienced in my 60+ years. It is a joy to drive and a pleasure to ride in. Much to my dismay it was broadsided - at 30-35 mph- other party did not apply brakes. The safety of this vehicle is amazing. The reinforcement bars protected people from injury and the interior of the vehicle. Crash rating should be 5 stars. I love this vehicle and hope to have it for a long time

Pains to me to say this - I love the car - all the features - nav system is excellent, its comfortable, etc. BUT had NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS with it - had it for 6 weeks - been in the shop 3 weeks - tons of parts replaced. Serpentine belt, horn mechanism, AC compressor. The blind spots are ridiculous - you simply can't see behind you. And the center console thing in the back seat is a joke - why is it there?

I saw the Pacifica while on a nothing to do on Saruraday trip through the local dealership. Interesting design I thought. After a test drive and some research I was sold. I have owned and rented many cars in my time and this is the best vehicle I have driven. I have had it for 10 months and still get that "can't wait to drive it" feeling.

I've had the car around 2 months now and I've had several annoying problems with some of the dasboard display mechanisms. I have had to have two components replaced in the first two months. I've also had a recall already. The car is comfortable to ride in but a bit sluggish upon initial accelaration. It does very well in the snow which is the reason I purchased this SUV in the first place. It is also great for kids and pets.
