We've had our 2006 Pacifica for a year now, and it has been a blessing for us as new parents.
The amount of things one needs to carry around for a baby is staggering, and our old Corolla wasn't cutting it.
Its comfortable, feels very smooth and solid while driving, and holds quite a bit of stuff, making it perfect for weekend shopping trips.
Only real downside so far has been the fuel economy (about 16-18 mpg on average, quite a contrast to a Corolla), but we knew that going in.
We purchased it in 2010 from a wholesaler for $10,900, which was a significant discount from its $28,000 sticker price.
If it continues to run for the next 4-5 years without any major repairs, we'll be happy.
Smooth and comfortable ride, ample interior, rear legseat room is very good.
"Leather" interior is second rate pleather.
Fuel economy is pretty bad.
Transmission is a little noisy moving into gear, but never a problem while driving.
