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.
Very spacious! Hatch space is huge and plenty of room in passenger area also. Always started, breaks never had to be replaced (had them checked many times but always great) Very comfortable. Tint on the windows was perfect especially in the rear windows.Nice for small family
Offer a longer warranty on this model, for the size of this model I would have thought it would have handled better in snow. Would be very nice if blind spots were better (when trying to change lanes you have to be able to rely your mirrors due to poor design in rear)
2006 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.
2006 Chrysler Pacifica 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
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!
The SPACE and the smoothness of the ride. I like the dvd outlets, and the cupholders in the back.
The A/C could have been better. It is a used car, so maybe I need to have it checked.
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.
