2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.

and of course the warranty is expired.
So that is $4,500. billed to me. Thankfully Chrysler is comping it minus $500. deductible.
Deductible from what?
I am confident that any Original Design engineering miscalculations (like the TOO SMALL engine mounts) will never be corrected.
This is why Chrysler failed [violative content deleted].
