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.

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


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.

Review

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.


Worst Features

Change the engine to address documented oil consumption

Review

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 donít then they donít 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 itís starting to burn a quart of oil every 3k miles or so but thatís no big deal to me.Itís 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.


Best Features

Lots of room in the back seat


Worst Features

Doesn't matter, They don't make it any more

Review

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.


Best Features

Folding 3rd seat. Power tail gate. Relatively comfortable seats. Good gas mileage. Great reliability.


Worst Features

Better A/C vents for the front dash. Relocate the high beam light indicator to a higher, more visible spot.
