2006 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Small storage areas all around car. Third row seat (but very cramped for adults). Lots of cup holders. Individual pop on/pop off reading lights for every seat. Cushy seats. Not terrible with gas mileage (about $70 per week in gas with average use).


Worst Features

Please Chrylser, take some time to care about the safety of those who will most likey use the car...families with children. THIS CAR IS NOT SAFE. Improve reliability and improve workmanship. Also, gloss to exterior paint started peeling one year after I bought it. This car is only 5 years old.

2006 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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!

2006 Chrysler Pacifica Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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).


Best Features

Back row of seats very easy to put up and lay down. 2nd row also very easy, with clever design. We have the Limited which has integrated navigation - nice feature - , and digital heating and cooling which is very quiet and works quickly in a hot or cold car. Favorite thing about the car is the quiet, smooth ride. Have read negative things about this, and wanted to share the opposite.


Worst Features

I wish the SIRIUS radio displayed artist and song...Car is big and wide, need to be careful parking, with a fairly large blindspot when backing up. I wish the automatic tire pressure sensor would tell which tire is low (I'm being picky now)...

2006 Chrysler Pacifica 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Roomy 2 row seating. Large cargo area. Sits at a great level for easy entry and exit. The stereo sounds excellent and with the 6 CD changer, I have plenty of music options. Also like having the manual slap stick shifting option for a little more power when I need it for uphill freeway driving


Worst Features

They don't make it anymore, but I would have liked the 5 speed transmission.

Review

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.


Best Features

Comfort, quiet, sound system, roominess.


Worst Features

Front cowling is very low--scrapes curbs/parking doohickeys. Rear visibility is lacking. Oscillations with rear windows lowered at 50+ mph.
