Poor Build Quality (Lots of repairs)
By Brent on
2005 Chrysler Pacifica Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
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!
Plenty of room. Comfortable ride. Seats fold down to haul large items around town. Luggage roof rack for those trips you pack way too much stuff! Good sounding stereo system. We feel safe in this car, frame feels solid.
Get rid of the Gremlins! Build a more reliable automobile. Improve gas mileage, we traded in a big SUV for this and didn't notice an improvement in our gas expense.
