It cracks me up that people are rating this car as if it were a 2016. I have had this car for the past 8 years and can honestly say, it has been a reliable family car throughout. Plenty of storage in the rear with seats down, which comes in handy for anyone needing extra interior space you wont find other than mini van. The car has had low maintenance over the years other than oil changes and wiper blades. My Pacifica has over 150K. and has been a good car. One of the reasons I bought it when I did was for the safety ratings it had with side air bags etc. Most cars then didn't even have side air bags. The Pacifica was rated very highly for safety regarding side impact and I have had my kids ride in it all over creation and felt safe. It has a deep console for storage along with sun glass holder and the arm rests along side the seats are great for long trips. The Pacifica was the precursor to the hybrid SUV style cars and many manufacturers seemed to have copied much of its function and style over the years to a bit more modified versions. I also like the placement of the things you need access to while driving... key on dash (easier to access) than on the column; manual shift option; lights and wipers and radio channel changer in steering wheel everything at your finger tips.

Great family vehicle, awesome on highway.

So I bought this from a family member in September 15. It's a great family vehicle and kids love it. Coming from a 2dr wrangler, this was a huge gain in interior space although huge decrease in coolness. It accelerates ok but transmission can be jittery in changing gears. fuel economy ok for an 06 car. Took it on a long road trip and performed exceptionally great. Have only changed the oil and replaced back rotors. It's a huge vehicle with plenty roominess, but sucks to park in the city parallel parking. Driving it feels like you're driving a sedan - sort of. Seems like i got one of the good ones as many other reviews claim issues with transmission, motor mounts and rusting engine cradle. If i ever have to fix any of those issues, will just trade it in or sell it for cheap. Kids love it. It's a popular vehicle on used car market, so much so Chrysler brought it back as a new full fledged mini-van which looks like a giant chunky 200c , apparently they are killing off the Town and Country and the Dodge Caravan. I have the base version with the 3.5L engine which is ok. I can imagine the 07-08s with the 4.0L have much better acceleration and have a 6 speed transmission as opposed the 4 speed on mine, but those cost more and look like are less reliable. Would recommend if you buy it with under 100K miles and make sure to inspect motor mounts and engine cradle are not rusted out, otherwise you will be stuck with moneypit no one will buy.

90,000 miles i changed the transmission at about 70,000, i have to change motor mounts every year maybe a year and a half at most, changed the front suspension at about 60,000. The car shuts off while driving and lurches forward when stopped at lights. Absolute worst vehicle i’ve ever had. GPS just stopped.Tire pressure sensors break every time i go through a car wash so i have to hand wash only. I’ve had to fix a host of other things that i’d rather not recall just had it tow to the shop again -evap codes- possible why its shutting off. Chrysler dealership support is worthless they say they don’t know whats wrong with it even though there is a recall on the fuel pump. my brother had the same car his burst into flames while he was driving it. i guess i’m lucky

Great... Sometimes

I bought this car in July 2014 with exactly 100K miles, maybe a few over. It is now October 2015 and the car has about 118K. I'd say it's appearance is good and holds up decently in terms of newer vehicles. People ask the year of the vehicle and are surprised it is a 2006. The quality of the ride is excellent due to the attention Chrysler put on the suspension and the spaciousness of the cabin is enviable in the 6 cylinder class. That said, I think the engine is too small for the vehicle. The acceleration is terribly sluggish and I always think I'm driving faster than I actually am. I think I'm doing about 50 and look down to see I'm barely breaking 40. I feel like a V6 engine should be adequate, but the way they did it in this car is NOT adequate. The transmission is fully functional, but I kind of fear for it. It can be slow to shift and occasionally give an ugly clunk upon both acceleration and deceleration. I think 118K is far too early to be fearful of a transmission replacement. The AWD feature on most models is a huge positive. After the torrential New England winter last year, this vehicle performed exceptionally well. I drove the car for the first 10 months of our ownership. However, my wife works in a location where the driveway in is nearly a vertical slope -- and the Pacifica made it up regardless of the quality of the weather. She asked me to borrow it so many times, I eventually told her it belonged to her. In terms of instrumentation, I am disappointed. Chrysler had always billed this vehicle as one with luxury styling. The dash display is nearly identical to a Town & Country years older. We had a friend who drove a 1998 T&C and the instrumentation was nearly identical. Very basic, as far as I am concerned. Speedometer, gas gauge, tachometer. Where is the engine thermostat? I've never owned a car that didn't have one. How about a display showing the temperature outside? Miles to empty display? I realize there are different "grades" of this car, however this was is not the total base model. I replaced a 2001 Volvo with this one also labeled "luxury", so I figured 5 years was enough for Chrysler to catch up. Not so much. It's sorely lacking and seems like the primary place Chrysler cheaped out on. Speaking of "cheaped out on", Chrysler installed a DVD player in my vehicle beneath the radio, but did not install a monitor. So... you have exactly half a unit. I have looked into installing a monitor multiple times. The cost is astronomical. If you have a third party do it, the cost can be in the thousands (on a now-9 year old American car... I'll pass). If you attempt it yourself, you'd be better no less than "Level: Expert". The number of items you have to disassemble inside and the number and cost of the parts you have to buy is enough to destroy your will to live. You need to be both mechanically and electrically inclined with precision -- this requires replacing the headliner with a brand new one and re-cutting the fabric to match all the things sticking out like it did from the factory.

First off this is 2015 I just bought a 06 Pacifica that just hit 100k miles, the car is a dream, drives with no issue. I would expect a truck to ride rough have a lot of blind spots but it is a dream. one thing that definitely wins me is the space! I am 6"1 I have long legs and it always has been a issue with me driving or sitting in the back. the car is wonderful! I am ready to fill it up with some kids of my own for the 4 seats in the back. only issue is have is there really isn't much storage space in arm or eye reach. i am use to storing stuff in different places that is reachable when i am driving. not good on gas but I am coming from having Cars for over 10 years into the truck world, but its good on gas on the highway.

I purchased my 2006 Pacifica in 2008. With 32000 MI on it. Have loved it! Only had to have the brakes fixed once, but that's not bad for 7 yrs of driving. I would buy it again. Wish they hadn't quit making them!!!!!!!

We bought this car last year with 100K on it. We had a large amount of problems with it upon purchase that were 100% covered by the dealer (a Chrysler-certified Jeep dealership). We bought it in July, it was finally cleared from the dealer's service bay in November. That could be a record. The issue was an EVAP code that eventually led to having both fuel pumps replaced (the car has two). The dealer began with the easy stuff (replacing valves and the gas cap). The vehicle is an overall very good SUV. It is spacious and the ride quality is on par with higher-end SUVs. I'm not totally sold on the quality, but it's nearly solid since then. I replaced the EGR valve this month.

Overall, the car was nice looking, just issues. It was spacious and comfortable for long road trips. At 40k miles alternator went, 50k something in the frontend needed repair due to noise (never went away) then at 60k ti-rod needed to be replaced, 70k engine sensors (mulitiple), timing belt, water pump needed replacement and air conditioning needed to be recharged. Not the best in snow.

I purchased this car in February of 2012. I have not had this car for a year and I have already had to have the engine replaced, within the first month of purchase. (thank the Lord that the dealership replaced for free). My mileage says 137,000 miles, the "new" engine is only suppose to have around 37,000 miles on it. My front motor mount has had to be replaced, as well as other minor things, battery, starter, alternator. Now, I had the oil changed not even 2 months ago, I do in-town driving, short errands, nothing major and my Fiance checked my oil and it was bone dry. Now my engine is making the same knocking noise that it was making before I had the engine replaced.

I purchased my 2006 Pacifica (base model) in May of 2012. The price was right and since I don't have a long commute, there was no need for all the extras (I drive about 3 minutes to the commuter parking lot). On the weekends, when running errands it is great. I usually have my daughter and my neice in the back and after about 30 minutes, they fall asleep. The ride is so smooth and comfortable and spacious, anyone who rides in the backseat falls asleep. The truck space? SO MUCH ROOM!

I have had to replace the gear box at a cost of 375.00 and the dealer says that this model is well known for the same problem. But no re-call has been offered by Chrysler. The gear will not come out of park once a spring has broken. Come on Chrysler,,,a spring??? for the price you charge for your products one would think you could well afford a better part.

Just picked up this car after much soul-searching to replace my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan that I owned for 135K of its 183K miles driven. This car had some interesting options for a base model: Heated leather seats and a CD changer (I am 43 and still do not own an I-pod). Also only 48K miles but I will be racking them up pretty fast. Very solid heavy vehicle with the 3.5 V6. Would have liked the 3.8 as in my van, but was not available in 2006. Not the fastest off the line, my van was a bit quicker, but great highway cruiser. No third row in the base, but five people in it over the weekend had no issues. If you don't want a van and can put up with slightly smaller size it's worth a look.

Solid, low cost Mommy-Mobile.

We've had our 2006 Pacifica for a year now, and it has been a blessing for us as new parents. The amount of things one needs to carry around for a baby is staggering, and our old Corolla wasn't cutting it. Its comfortable, feels very smooth and solid while driving, and holds quite a bit of stuff, making it perfect for weekend shopping trips. Only real downside so far has been the fuel economy (about 16-18 mpg on average, quite a contrast to a Corolla), but we knew that going in. We purchased it in 2010 from a wholesaler for $10,900, which was a significant discount from its $28,000 sticker price. If it continues to run for the next 4-5 years without any major repairs, we'll be happy.

Favorite car thus far, but starting to show her age...

I loved this car the moment I first drove it down the road. Actually drove 3 different Pacifica's before deciding on the '06 Touring FWD (at the time I worked at a Chevy dealer and we had 3 used ones on the lot). We've been driving this car since Feb. '08. Started with 32K & just rolled 97K early this week. We do a lot of traveling & it has always been the favorited reliable car to use. No real major issues. Do have occassional squeak in driver seat from bolster (Chrysler dealer would just adjust it & say it was 'corrected'.Aggravating). Just recently ABS light comes on intermittently and only once actually felt a shutter in braking (as though ABS kicked in) just before lite came on. :-/

I am about to trade my '06 Pacifica in. Since I bought it: left front axle broke as I was leaving a parking space, emissions leak x 2, ABS malfunctions, lose power steering after driving in the rain, car shuts off immediately after sharp left turns, replaced struts. Now: front and rear motor bearings must be replaced, entire oil pan needs to be replaced, belt tensioner needs to be replaced, AND THIS DOESNT COVER THE OTHER EXHISTING PROBLEMS. I am a single mom of two. I do not drive like a lunatic and I use it to run local errands; take me and the kids to and from school and work. This car has cost me so much money it makes me want to cry.

I bought my Pacifica in 2006 with 17,000 miles on it. 5 years later, now with 107,000 miles on it, I have had limited trouble. The rocker arm went out, but the dealership covered it under the extended warranty. I have noticed a huge usage in oil, so it's just a matter of checking it more often than normal. I also had the motor mount replaced which I am being told is common in these cars. Other than the few minor repairs, the car runs great, is very reliable and fun to drive!

Had our Pacifica for almost 2 years now, and am very happy so far. Seriously the nicest vehicle I've owned - that includes Toyota Avalon, various Fords, VW Passat... The interior is very quiet, the sound system is great, the ride is smooth. Car feels so solid - it has a big wheelbase, very sure footed. Engine isn't the perkiest, but doesn't labor and has acceleration when needed. Only service needed so far was to replace ABS sensor (ABS light was on).

I'm enjoying the ride so far!

I have had this FWD Basic Model for just a couple of months and have enjoyed a really nice ride so far. Our other car is a 2007 RX350 and while this vehicle does have the same features and comfort, it's pretty close and and has more room inside. I enjoy driving it. My first tank of gas gave me 17.9 miles per gallon. As good as our other car that is 500 lbs lighter with a 3.5 L engine.

Bought with 26k, now has 105k. Replaced control arm, battery, struts. Needs backrest motor replaced. Great road car, SO comfortable, quiet and smooth. Runs/rides/drives great still. Mileage as advertised. Getting rid of it--with new service vehicle it sits most of the time. Love the sound system, roominess, handling. Better in snow than my wife's '06 outback. It has been the nicest, most dependable car I've had.

This vehicle has a history of engine oil consumption. I would strongly encourage any prospective buyer to completely research this before making a purchase. A nice car with a bad engine doesn't make for a good investment.

I bought my Pacifica new in 2006 and I love it.I hear all these bad reviews on it and it makes me think that if someone has something to complain about it they will post it and if they don’t then they don’t look to make it public. I love my car and so far I am happy with it. My brake light comes on at some point every time I drive it but I could care less. One of my arms on the rear hatch broke but I replaced it myself for $12. It was easy. It does seem like it’s starting to burn a quart of oil every 3k miles or so but that’s no big deal to me.It’s not normal but I do what I have to do. I use synthetic oil and I also add Lucas oil just in case. Overall I am happy so far.

Mine has about 56,000 miles, mostly highway usage and has never (never) had any service issues! It looks good, has decent seat comfort, adequate adult performance and good gas mileage (almost EXACTLY what the car is rated for).Still running on original tires with lots of tread left. What is not to like? I have now had 5 Chrysler cars. They have given me better service from the previous GM and Fords I had and also the horrible Saturn Vue I foolishly bought (ugh). I have considered buying a slightly used Mercedes (for the snob appeal), but I just can't abandon Chrysler given the great results I've had.

Bought used at repo auction. Very pleased with driving and handling. Lots of room for the family. This car is fat and requires attention getting in and out of parking spaces. No problems after 7K miles of city and highway driving. Only expense so far is oil, tires and alignment. Brakes are next. No engine issues.

I have had this car from the beginning and I love it! I always get complimented by passengers. There are so many nice features- the heated seats in front and back and I can comfortably haul two adults in the third row as well. The auto liftgate is a huge help when getting groceries and the car has a really smooth ride. The entertainment options are awesome and keep the kids very happy. Great also because we can haul them and their friends without a huge road hog vehicle. Have not had any technical issues other than an electrical coil that was under warranty. Would recommend this to anyone.

I bought the vehicle a little over 2 yrs ago with 39,000 mi. So far I've had to replace both cv joints at under 42,000mi, 2 coil packs, front disc brakes, transmission leak at 40,000. The gas mileage stinks, and the front brakes are having problems breaking again. This would not have happened with a Japanese vehicle. You can bet that this is my FIRST AND LAST Dodge/Chrysler vehicle I ever buy and would only recommend it to our enemies.

My driver seat is stuck in the forward mode, it will not go back, so when I drive it I need to struggle to get in. When I have to get out is a nightmare! I have almost pulled my shoulder out of its socket trying to pull myself out of the car. I pray I don't get in a accident because the paramedics won't be able to get me out of the car. My concern is when this happens is there an emergency release button that can be pressed? Please let me know.

This car is roomy inside for a family of 4. I could only fit 2 carseats in the back seat, so if you have more than 2 children, I wouldn't suggest buying. It has a lot of space in the rear cargo area, it is enough to fit, stroller, play yard, and luggage and still have room to spare. It didn't get the 17 in town and 23 on freeway that I expected, I only got 14 in town and 20 on freeway, and I am not a fast speedy driver.

I had this car for 4 months and had to replace all the rocker arms in the motor and a pulley that was cracked. Cost me $1600. Not a happy camper. All of this at 38,000 miles. Road noise is not good. I hear clicking and clacking up in the front of the car. I just turn the radio up to drown it out. I like the way the car looks inside and out. I like the way it drives. The motor is a piece of crap - obviously. Especially after reading other review of people sinking lots of money to repair the rocker arms too. What is the deal Chrysler? I have gotten used to the blind spots in the back...it took a while, but I rely on my side mirrors a lot.

I first leased the vehicle in '06 and at the end of the agreement Chrysler gave a great discount and bought the car. I have 50k miles on it, still original tires. I have replaced both headlights, and the front brakes and the oil regularly it's been a tank. The highway ride is great, they improved the engine in later years and then just gave up. You'll see them on the road for a long time to come.

We purchased ours used in anticipation of having out first child. We love the roominess on the inside and the style, but that's about where it stops. We've paid $800+ for two major brake repairs which were not covered under warranty. Even minor repairs and maintenance are ridiculously expensive - $85 for the two headlights that went out within 3 days of each other and $150 per tire. There is also this awful rattling noise from the back that is very loud at highway speeds. The door light cover falls off when I close the door too hard. The acceleration to highway speeds is slow. The exhaust smells like it belongs on a 1970's car.

We purchased a 2005 new off the lot and it has 80K and looks like its brand new, only had to put tires and oil changes, got 75K on the brakes. love it so much that I just found a 2006 with 21K, like a brand new one. I know Chrysler got a bad wrap, but I have had a concorde, two intrepids and a LHS, all of them have been low maintianance and drove well. If you can find one with lowe miles, they are going cheap and are great hwy cars. Only draw back is that they are a 4 person not 6 for comfort.

Initially did not want the vehicle since it reminded me of a station wagon. Husband insisted. I use it for work, so I put quite a few miles on it yearly. Other than the blind spots, which you need to use the mirrors more than with other vehicles, this car has been great. It is a smooth ride, it gets better gas mileage than was advertised (almost 19) it is quiet, turn-ratio is great, and the stereo is awesome. It is also depended on when we are travelling with many people. Went to the beach last year and fit six in comfortably. I have 55,000 on it and plan to drive it at least two more years.

Ours is 3 years and 45k miles old and has done well so far. No serious reliability problems to date. Yes, it's heavy, meaning: fairly slow and thirsty. It was bought with safety in mind, so the weight is part of the package. Good in the snow, good on highways, nice interior, nice exterior and the 6 seats come in useful. My only reservations come from reading some of the other comments here about reliability, but this one has behaved and has a 100k extended warranty from a non Chrysler company.

This is the first SUV/Crossover owed and I LOVE IT! I have the Touring edition with the navigation/dvd/6disk changer and wouldnt give up anything! At first learning to back up in it was a challenge as there is a slight blind spot on the drivers side but after some getting used to, hardly noticable anymore. Replacing tires is expensive but if that is all i have to replace then i am very content to pay whatever needs to be paid to get them taken care of. The seats are extra comfortable especially with lumbar support and easy to drive on long trips. The performance is great and handling is easy!

I bought my AWD Touring Pacifica in February 2006. The AWD system had to be replaced after only 13 months. The transmission had to have major repairs at 15 months. Also had a throttle sensor replaced at 15 months. This repair work was done under warranty, so it didn't cost me anything (thank goodness!). Replaced rack and pinion steering system at 45,000 miles. This was $1200 repair on a 2 year old car. Have also replaced the headlight lamps 2 times each. This is the first and last Chrysler product that will be purchased by me.

Test driving many mid-sized SUVs and crossovers I fell in love with the Pacifica.I was pretty pleased with the vehicle: beautiful styling, quiet cabin, smooth ride, ample space - definitely a passenger conscious vehicle. Just before 50K the transmission went out. The amount of torque on the trans coupled with the weight of the Pacifica is Not a good combo. A part shot through transmission case causing a hole about the size of a quarter and all the fluid leaked out. The transmission began seizing one day while on the highway and nearly caused an accident. It was in the shop for nearly a month and fortunately I bought a 100k warranty on the thing. Afraid of further part issues, I traded out.

I fell in love with the stylish look of the vehicle and the roomy interior. After a brief test drive, I purchased the Pacifica. Now, after several months of driving my Pacifica, I'm ready to trade. There is a terrible blind spot on the driver's side, and backing up, unless you have the backing assistance, is a nightmare. You simply cannot see out the back due to the design of the car. There is more interior noise than I anticipated. The Pacifica is pretty to look at, but I'm anxious to trade this one off.

My wife and I fell in love with the looks inside and out on our 15th anniversary and drove it off the lot. We have noticed as others have (low fuel economy, bellowing noise with the back windows down, some obstructed view in the rear, but most of all look out at 45000 miles. Rocker arm repair will hit and with a short warranty period you are looking at $1300+ in repair costs. After some complaining about the pre-mature defect Chrylser helped out with the repair bill. Koodos for that. Now that we are going on to 50k we are feeling some trans. shifting issues, but could it be the lack of a warranty jacking with my mind. Over all to this point I like the car.

I bought this car because I wanted a crossover vehicle. I was pleased with the amount of room inside the car and also the interior. However, that is where it stops. The car has absolutely no power. It is hard to merge onto the freeway, oh and when you accelerate to merge onto that freeway you will watch your money fly out the window because it sucks up so much gas. The reliability of the car is horrible. I have had the car stall on me several times while driving, and then brought it into the dealer for them to tell me that there is nothing wrong with the car.

My ABS light kept coming on and I found out that my tire sensors were malfunctioning. That was $600 worth of heartache. The breaking system has always been loud and annoying and there are clicks and clacks in the axles. By the way, never drive over 40mph and lower the back windows. I haven't studied enough physics to figure that one out yet. Neither has Chryslers engineers. There is also a bad blind spot in the drivers rearview. Also, my passenger side low beam light has blown 3 times in the last 6 months. They only cost $20 a pop. Oh well.

So far this has been an absolutely fabulous driving and riding vehicle. Wife doesn't ask to stop every two hours to stretch and walk out the kinks. Gas mileage is not bad (22.7) on trips as long as you don't use ethanol. In 34000 miles the only problem is with an electronic sender that tells the torque converter to lock. Warranty covered. Hate to see them go, may drive this one into the ground.

We purchased our Pacifica FWD Touring Edition in June of 2006. It now has almost 85,000 miles on it, mostly highway miles from my commute to work. The Pacifica is a very comfortable and pleasant car to drive. The build quality has been pretty good and so far we've had no problems with it. One of the earlier comments about these cars being lousy in winter is incorrect. I've been through 3 winters now with my Pacifica and it gets through the snow almost as well as some 4 wheel drive vehicles do. Gas mileage hasn't been spectacular, but I think I could be doing a lot worse. Overall, we're quite happy with our Pacifica.

Bought this car used in Jan 08, not too happy. Had to replace rocker arms last week, big money, no warranty even though only 50K miles. Some ABS or maybe rotor problem, don't even want to know the price for these repairs. Problems with cruise control, has mind of own, shifts up or down, won't resume speed if hit brakes. There is a loud clicking noise when turning slowly, the transmission shifts for no reason at times. This is the noisiest car I've ever owned, there so many squeaks, clicks and rattles inside the passenger compartment that it is difficult to have a peaceful ride. Sunroof clicks if open or racked, the springs on the passenger seat, trim rattles on doors/dashboard, last 1 for me

While this is not the best car it is a good car. For a 'big' vehicle it transmits a fair amount of the road. There is a tendency to oversteer in sharp turns but it does not lean. The ABS feels 'funny' when doing a normal stop. There is an awful harmonic when the rear windows are lowered partially with speed over 40 mph. It is roomy for carrying but lacks rear leg room and the 3d row is just for kids.

Drives great, fun to drive, mileage good for the weight and size (17 city, 23+ highway), plenty of room, quiet, fun to drive (did I already say that?). Took it on three long trips and was a breeze.

I had driven a Pacifica Touring AWD from SW PA to Dickson, Tn on several occasions and took a few different routes to see how she ran. I had my favorite time through the mountains of WV. It has an excellent ride shared with its Benz siblings, is quiet, and has beautiful interior. I have a Signature Series with two tone gray/black leather and aluminum trim where the woodgrain usually is. Gas mileage is OK for a 4500 pound machine, but the 19 inch tire option will kill you, $250.00 per tire! Using the Auto Stick it is peppy, but if you're not used to a revving engine to make power you may find it sluggish. It serves my family of 4 plus the neighbors kids well!!! Overall a great product!

I really love driving this car, it has lots of room and has the feel of a luxury car. (the good) I have had issues with the passenger airbag light coming. It has been 4 times for this and they say they have reprogrammed the system. The last time it was in the sales manager stated that you shouldn't lay anything on the seat if no one was sitting in it. That makes no sense! (the bad) Have 25K miles, have been having issues when starting to drive the wheels lock up and the only thing that seems to fix it is to back up about 10 ft and then drive forward. Now it's making a popping noise when you start to drive forward. The dealer checked the parking brake and found nothing. (the ugly)

Bought the Pacifica when it was just a year old. 36,000 mi and already have ABS light on and some kind of leak from evaporator tank to gas tank. The only way to find this problem was through dealership because dashboard computer system "so sophisticated" my trustworthy mechanic wouldn't touch it. Also tends to speed up when I brake, hard choppy braking, sometimes feel like I'm driving a Suburban with a trailer and boat attached. I live in a hot climate and AC does not cool enough. Hear a clicking in the steering wheel column. Very uncomfortable getting people into third row seats. No storage when all seats taken. I'm a single mom with two children and this car is worrying me.

I bought this car, loaded and thought I would be so happy with it. Little did I know a week after I bought it, it would end up in the shop for a week and a half. A month after that it was in the shop for 4 days for the same exact problem, something with the rocker arms, and problems with the ABS. The car has been nothing but problems and wish I never bought it. Beautiful inside and out but built with tape and glue. Do yourself a favor and don't even consider the car. I was told it was not safe to drive at all. The dealership and Chrysler were no help at all, telling me I was on my own as there was nothing they could tell me and I had not purchased the extended warranty.

Forget this vehicle if you live in snow. My Pacifica Touring has 24,000 highway miles. The ABS System is poor. Grinding stops on light wet roads. 2 occasions in which vehicle "sped up" on it's own. Poor visibility when looking to back out of a parking space. Sorry that I fell in love with the interior as the car itself is very scary to drive. It's going to dealership to find out what the problem is with the ABS system. Handles absolutely poorly in snow and/or wet roads. Fact is, I refuse to drive my car until dealer proves whatever is wrong is fixed.

I bought this vehicle last year because I needed a vehicle with more leg room. I thought the exterior was very sharp looking considering it's essentially a stationwagon/suv. I had a VW Jetta with turbo but with the two kids didn't have hardly any leg room. Initially, I really loved the vehicle but after some time I'm already looking for a new vehicle. The interior is pretty and there is plenty of leg room but when you have to use the 3rd row seats you can't fit a thing in the back. Gas mileage should be better and the vehicle needs a little more oomph/pick up when you need to accelerate quickly (I feel like a grandma driving this thing sometimes).

My 2006 Pacifica has been nothing but problems. Warped rotors, transmission issues, high idle on three occassions, exterior windshield gasket falling off, body molding/trim on drivers side of vehicle pulling away from frame of car...and several other issues. The car has only 18,000 miles on it, but it seems that it has spent more time in the dealers garage than it has in my own. I've never had a vehicle with so many issues, and I've had 19 vehicles in 25 years. The dealer has been cooperative and accomodating on most issues, but we've had so many problems, the service manager knows us so well that no appointment is necessary. We just bring it in. Has been a very bad experience.

I really love my car

We had a Pacifica as a rental car a couple of times, I liked them so much I bought one......I love the way it handles (was awasome in the snow)it zips in and out of traffic like a small car but has lots of room like a big car. Has a lot of get up and go. I love that it feels so posh inside and is so very quite it relly is like being in Benz. I have a bad back so one of the things is, it is easy to load up (it is a great level) and the seats are fanny level, I don't have to climb up or drop down. I have had it almost a year and have no problems.

I had eyed this one for about 3 months and finaly purchased. The car is fun to drive and very elegant. Smooth ride and comfortable interior. Mileage could be better, but for a large vehicle it is fine. Mileage for Pacifica was better than my old GMC Jimmy and my wifes Town and Country. You can tell the difference in mileage if you drive it correctly. If you accelerate hard you can feel the dollars being sucked out of your pocket! Overall love the Pacifica and would by from Chrysler again.

At the beginning this was an ideal car, roomy enough for 6, excellent features, sporty look. But after only an year and 12000 miles I started visiting the service. ABS sensors, noisy steering, and an axle broken! Looks like a Mercedes but with american quality.

I had originally thought the Pacifica was lacking in aesthetics, but now I feel completely different. It shares its sleek design with the similar Mercedes crossover model. We'll call it unique. Performance is A++. The 3.5ltr engine pumps out 250hp and is very capable of breaking the tires loose from the asphalt. Fuel economy is average, but certainly acceptable for a full-size vehicle. Interior comfort is a huge plus for those in the front as well as back seating areas.

Not the most fuel efficient car (18/25) it certainly is a car that depends on driving style to get the most out of the mileage. Decent power, went through the rockies without problem. Build quality is much better than its non-Daimler predecessors. Is great for our 2 kids. Reverse facing car seats in the 2nd row do not affect the front seat passengers (didn't get that from our old Windstar) Great stereo (love the mp3 player), nice and comfortable for long trips. Can't beat it for the price.

Good idea, poor execution. Sunroof failed when we picked up car at dealer, took 3 days to fix. Within a week serpentine belt was squeaking like a 20 year old car; took FIVE trips to dealer to fix (dealer explained, at last visit, that Chrysler service policy was to replace belt at least three times with Chrysler part; after that they could install GM part (!) that actually worked). Dealer couldn't have cared less about problems. Car is underpowered, with poorly spaced 4 speed auto gearing. Terrible climate control (no heat to legs in winter) and poor/slow defrosting. Very disappointing overall, can't wait to get out of lease and into an Audi Q7.

I have had my 2006 pacifica for over a yr. now everything is great about it other than the gas mileage and the main thing is the blind spots. It really doesn't matter how well a vehicle performs or how pretty it is if you cannot see out of it now does it?I love the handling of it and the inside is roomy. It will turn on a dime but you better look a lot before you turn

I bought my car for the look I wont lie. It is a gorgeous car! I only wish that I would have noticed that the back window is very small. From the outside it looks deceiving. I personally have a very hard time seeing out of the back window while trying to back up. I feel that the car has too many blind spots and needs larger back windows. I did regret buying this car since I have two small babies and purchased it for its safety feature. Although like I said at the time I was so excited I overlooked the obvious. Also the tint is too dark for night driving. I feel the Town and Country would have been a better choice for me. But for looks the Pacifica wins.

I just recently became a father, and had to get rid of my Dodge Dakota, Not only do I love this vehicle but I purchased a nicely equipped touring, and unburied myself 11k out of my Dodge truck and my payments went up $60.00 a month. I needed out of that truck, but as I drive it more and more every day it just gets beater. My wife loves it more than her Jetta because it is so much easier to get take the baby in. I have almost 3000 miles on it now, and it is performing perfectly, handles awesome, and the gas mileage while it could be better is better than that truck was. I am getting I guess split between highway, and city around 15-18. I love driving it. The stereo is ok, especially w/sirius

At one point while driving my brand new Pacifica home from the dealership, I thought that I felt the car move to the right. Within the next day, I discovered that the car did pull to the right when I accelerated. I took the vehicle back to the dealer and that began a long battle between myself and Chrysler. The only answer I have gotten from them is that the pulling to the right is a characteristic of the car! I was told to "deal with it!" I persued this problem throught Chrysler and was told that there was nothing that could be done. I hate driving this car and I am in the process of trading it now.

This was a nice attempt to create somthing a little different. It's clear that this was a car produced after the merger. The interior materials and design are much better than anything Chrysler produced prior. The engine is adequate but would be alot better it the car didn't weigh so much. Gas mileage would be better as well. The experience making minivans shows in the inside with the attention to details. I like the fact that the seats fold flat without the console in the middle of the 2nd row getting in the way. Thus far mine has been solid. I am curious to see with all the electronics (nav system, tire pressure monitor, EVIC system etc.) will hold up over time. This was a solid effort.

My wife and I really enjoy our Chrysler Pacifica. We traded in our Dodge Stratus to get our Pacifica and although they are different types of transportation we enjoyed our Stratus but the view that we get from our Pacifica is much better. We had great success with the Stratus and so far the Pacifica has by far exceeded our expectation. We have gotten between 25 and 28 miles per gallon depending on travel conditions. I would recommend this vehicle to any one. I would have liked to have goten the 3.8 that was offered in the 2005 but it wasn't offered in the 2006. I know the 3.5 offers more power but I don't tow anything and the 3.8 got better milage. I give the Pacifica 5 stars.

We're so excited about owning this car! This Limited AWD Pacifica has it all. Beautiful exterior lines, with all the comforts of your family room inside. It handles so nicely around town and is especially fun to drive on extended trips down the coast of California. The DVD system and the integrated Sirius Satellite Radio are perfect for Mom, Dad and our two teenage daughters. You can plug your ipod right into the front of the stereo system via the A/V jacks too! It's a hefty, sturdy vehicle so the mileage isn't that great but it sure wasn't a deal-breaker. Any family of 6 or less should definitely look at the Pacifca!

We love this car because it has all of the room of a minivan, but it is not a 'box'. It has a very distinct and appealing style. It looks like a 'classy' car, and when you look in the interior it is even more so. Gas mileage is not good, but that is a trade of because of the weight and safety of the vehicle. What good is it to save on gas if the vehicle is not heavy and safe. Is a family member's life worth a few hundred dollars in gas savings over the life of the vehicle? For its size and weight (4600 lbs} fuel economy is not bad. Compare apples to apples, oranges to oranges, and 4600 lbs vehicles to 4600 lb vehicles.

Words can't describe how happy we are with our new Pacifica! My husband and I have a daughter and a little boy on the way, and we needed to get into a larger vehicle without putting out too much money. So we chose to lease the 5 passenger Pacifica. We love everything about it! The style, the way it drives (we're already planning a road trip), the comfort, EVERYTHING! Other reviewers commented on the fuel economy. The gas mileage is fine with me. We bought it Saturday and on Wednesday are only at a half a tank. For the size of the vehicle, the gas mileage is fine. Trust me! If you have a small family, and can't afford the high priced Honda Odessey yet, the Pacifica is the way to go!

After my wife and I were deciding between a Honda Pilot, Nissan Murano, or another Ford Explorer, we found the Pacifica at the Chicago Autoshow. It doesn't have the best gas millage of the bunch, but it's way better than my 2000 Ford Explorer AWD. (13 mpg) I drive aggressively, but manage to get 19 mpg around town, and 23 mpg highway. I told my wife I would only get it if we bought the Limited. I didn't like the flat black plastic lower panels, plain interior. The Limited really adds some class to the car, and after comparing it to my friends Lexus RX330, I think it's as good of styling and I paid a lot less! The Pacifica Limited FWD is a great looking car that is a pleasure to drive!

The Pacifica is all you need if you enjoy riding and touring the highway. I even use it as my commuter and not only does it provide reasonable fuel economy at 21 mpg, I also feel secure and safe in the tight body... without all the heavyness of a truck based SUV (Traded a Durango). Seats are great, low noise in cabin and a great view except for backing up.. but getting used to that as well!

After the first year, I am not so satisfied. Came with defective ball joints (brake = thunk!), and a rattle that the dealer had to jimmy-rig to fix. Does drive OK, but feels sluggish. Suppose it handles like any other SUV. Blind spots are annoying. Paint on the plastic parts is really of low quality and tiny dings cause missing paint that peels more and more. Horrible gas mileage for a V6 (12-14 MPG in city). No space for any cargo with 3rd seat up. Very disappointing, will probably sell before warranty is up.

The Pacific is a perfect fit for us! It is the most comfortable ride I've ever had in a vehicle, and the price was right for all of the "bells and whistles" when you consider the power seats/locks, 2nd and 3rd row seats that fold for storage, etc. There are just too many great things about the Pacifica to list here!

I have driven the Chrysler 300, and actually prefer the Pacifica. The heated seats are certainly worth having, and I love the second row captain seats.

We were told this vehicle had bad blind spots, but after a test drive (and using the side view mirrors as they were intended) we found no blind spots. It's fun to drive and is very comfortable on long trips. The V6 accelerates nicely and merges into highway traffic easily. The interior is spacious and the instrmnt & contrl panels are well designed. We needed a vehicle with alot of leg room and after trying the Japanese suvs the Jeep Commander and some mini vans the Pacifica beat them all! Ours has alot of options but if I could choose only one it would be the rear-park-assist it's worth it. My wife and I love this vehcl and recommend test driving it and forming your own opinion. A Great Ride!!

I love this car. I have had it for 1 week and have done both city driving and highway driving and it handles beautifully and rides so smoothly I feel like I'm on a magic carpet ride. The features on this car are well laid out. At first I was put off by the location of the remote stereo/audio controls (they are located behind the steering wheel--but after using them I realized that it makes most sense to put them there since your fingers are natually wrapped around the wheel. The bass with the Infinity Intermezzo surround sound is kicking. And the 19" wheels hug the road like a sports car. I feel like a 16 year old again--I go out and just sit in this car to get away from it all.

Good but need a few improvements

Good car all around. Does not seem as large when driven. Nice ride and very spacious. The navigation screen is poorly placed. Wife almost got into an accident when trying to adjust it. Very poor fuel economy. Much of this car resembles a down scaled version of the MB R class. The nice features in the MB is not in the Pacifica (stability control and large moon-roof), that I wished is availible in the Pacifica.

I love my Pacifica

This vehicle is fun to drive as well as looking great. We travel often and this is the most comfortable vehicle I have owned in years. It handles like a sports car while having lots of room for people and cargo. When it comes time to get and new car, I will definitely get anothe one.

This has been couple of weeks for my new 2006 Pacifica Touring. 1) Looks good both in and out 2) Cloth interior seats are comfy 3) Controls are easy 4) Some features are like luxury car 5) Second row seat center console is no value. 6) Engine is very noisy and sluggish 7) Something must be done for the driver side blind spot 8) The controls on the steering are not visible during the night i.e., no background light.

I love this car!! Had a Sienna mini- van before, and while it was comfortable, convenient, and practical, just didn't have the style that I was looking for. The Pacifica has all that and more! I love the way this car looks and drives. Love the interior - sporty and roomy. The one major negative is the gas mileage. It is not good at all around town. I get in and can see the gauge go down after each small trip around town. Having said that, I would still buy another because I just love this car!!

I have owned BMW’s and other luxury cars, but for the money you just can’t beat this one! It is just a pure delight to drive. It is quite and smooth and wind noise is virtual non existent. Road noise is about the same as a 745i but just a tad bit louder. The seats are just right, not to firm or soft; they just seem to hug and hold you. Like most people are saying in here, the leg room is outstanding! As for the wife, she loves the drive height as she can see over the small cars and loves the way it handles. Parking is no problem here! We look forward to a long relationship with this one.

Love my Pacifica

Nice, comfortable ride, quiet interior, and highly recommend the leather seating. Only drawbacks are the gas mileage with AWD, we're getting 14-15 in town driving and never done better than 17-18 on Hwy. That's a lot different than the 17city/22 hwy which is estimated.

This is one hot vehicle

I leased a Walter P. Signature Series Pacifica a couple of weeks ago. I took it home to show my husband over the weekend, and by Monday morning we owned the vehicle. We got the sunset bronze colored exterior, with two toned leather heated seats (which my husband said he would never own, but now absolutely loves them). I love having the Navigation system and the rear DVD player for our long trips we take every year. I should say that it will be hard to give this vehicle up at the end of the lease.

It's about time!

My wife and I feel we made an excellent choice considering the features we got. I has a great, quiet, smooth ride. My wife loves the heated seats. Good features on climate control; really like having the nav system; like the DVD/CD players and especially the input jacks for my ipod. Also pleased with the free 1yr Sirius subscription. There is room to carry everything we need to; now my wife says she can go small on our next car with the kids gone and get rid of the Sienna-oh boy another sports car! The auto liftback feature is neat to have. Wipers do a fine job. Love the design-it's uniqueness from the majority of other SUVs sold me.

I just left my Jeep lease and was actually looking for a truck when I came across the Pacifica. Not your typical "family truckster". The design makes it not quite an SUV but not quite a mini van, incorporating the best of both while keeping a car like ride. I'm 6'4" and there is more than enough space for me with comfortable power seats. The base model comes with many standard features that you might pay extra for on other vehicles . The $3000.00 cash back and extra $1000.00 lease loyalty combined with some help from Edmunds on the MSRP, made it a deal I couldn't refuse.

I really like this car. It is a pleasure to drive. I have a fully loaded version and all the features are great. You really feel safe in this car and in control of the road. I get about 22 MPG highway and about 17 around town. If you drive with the engine cold, it is very thirsty, but this resolves once the engine warms up. The rear DVD system is a lifesaver with my son, get it if you have kids. The rear bucket seats are great and very comfortable. The navigation system is well worth it, but mine did "get lost" twice, and I had to shut off the engine and restart the car to reset the navigation. Acceleration is moderate, but for transporting kids, it is just fine.

Narrowed our choice between Ford Freestyle and Chrysler Pacifica. After driving both within an hour, the Pacifica won hands down. The poor-quality interior materials and ill-fitting panels in the Ford were very noticeable and disappointing. We love the quiet, smooth ride of the Pacifica, the elegant, comfortable interior, the many convenience features and the security of all-wheel drive. Especially love the power rear liftgate. The stereo is awesome. (And it doesn't hurt that it bears a more-than-passing resemblance to the R-Class Mercedes!)

The last time I wrote one of these it was in praise of my 2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8t. Little did I know what a jinx I caused myself. Okay, the Pacifica is a nice car. One I wouldn't have ever considered but I hate minivans and with a new addition to the family, I had to get a bigger car. So far, crossing my fingers, I love everything about my Pacifica. I love the ride, handling, stereo, the navigation is awesome (though about 4 years behind the times in my part of the country), and the DVD in the back is great for the kiddies. I don't know what else to say other than, buy one! Hopefully, 4-5 years down the road I will still be singing its praise.

A real joy to drive, especially in the mountains. The all-wheel drive is sweet and makes cornering a breezing at speed. A bit slow after the one-two shift unless under full throttle. Ample room and interior seating is fully adjustable and folds easily. Cargo space is cavernous and we love it. Expect only about 17-18 mpg in denver commuting or 75mph interstate driving.

I love the interior and the looks of the Chrsyler Pacifica. BUT, I have had nothing but problems with the vehicle, the transmission (electrical). The dealership has been great, but until it holds a code, nothing can be surely fixed. I will not buy another Pacifica, EVER. Terrible luck with vehicle.

My wife and I arew so thrilled with our new Pacifica...I owned a Nissan Maxima that carried the HID headlights and got hit (stolen) around 3 times. This last time I ended up having to rent a Pacifica...The minute I drove it off the rental car, I fell in love with it. The style, speed and comfort are superb...We love the features of the 26U packages and we love our 17 chrome clad wheels... We saved around $2600 by using the Edmunds.com invoice price list...this combined with the right timing can safe you hundreds and gives you less time to spend at the dealership.

A wonder decision made. . . . .

I traded a 2005 Chrylser 300 Touring in on my Pacifica, I bought my 300 3 weeks after they hit the showroom floor, while it was definitely an eye catcher in the looks department, it just wasnt my dream car, 2 weeks after I bought my 300 I had the opportunity to drive a Pacifica, I was hooked and wanted one, my husband told me that I had to drive my 300 for a year, (I bought the rear wheel drive model)I endured a modest Pacific Northwest winter, where I discover that the 300 wasn't worth much in the snow, and decided that I was going to get a Pacifica. I did and as winter approaches, I eagerly anticipate driving my all-wheel drive model, it is comfortable and beautiful as well as practical.

Wow, what a great Car. It is quiet, gets looks whever you go. We were in Newport beach over the Weekend and this car fit right in. Ride is remarkable and the comfort features are more than adequate. With this car everybody is happy. Kids can recline the seats or move the seats back for more leg room, and the windows roll all the way down in the back. Our Pacifica is loaded with everything except Navigation. Who needs NAV. I am a guy I know where I am going. Nothing is better than driving a car like this and knowing you have a car with a five star crash rating. Easy to get in and get out of. fits everybody comfortably. Fit and Finish is way above standard. We Love our Pacifica!

Thought I would offer my comments on a 2006 Pacifica as there is so little information on them. I had ordered mine on the first day they accepted Fleet orders and took delivery five days ago. Already have almost 600 miles on it. The biggest complaint I had heard related to fuel economy. So far I have averaged about 20.6 MPG. It has been a mixture of city but mostly highway driving. It is a joy to drive and my kids were wild about the way it looks. .

this vehicle has exceeded expectations. the ride is great, handling superior and the safety ratings speak for themselves. I have 30,000 miles on the vehicle with no major problems. all I have done is change the oil and rotate the tires.The one real surprise was how helpful the GPS system is. I will not buy another vehicle without it. The day I purchased the vehicle I test drove the honda pilot, toyota highlander and the pacifica. The pilot was third, the highlander was a very close second, but the pacifica was much more vehicle for what I paid. The highlander and the pacifica came in close in price, but the pacifica had many more features (options) and a better warranty.

This vehicle is stable on the road and is gives a very comfortable ride. The interior is very appealing; the dash appears to wrap around the front which is especially nicely designed. The driver's seat is quite comfortable for me, and I am a short person. I especially like the extra lumbar support. The vehicle recently took four children in booster seats and car seats on a short outling; the ride was quite comfortable for the two adults. Cargo space is limited when using four car seats for children, but I do not haul more than two children on most occasions. The children and I like the extra vents that help to circulate heat and air conditioning.
