I looked at the Pacifica for 2 years before buying it in 2007. I currently have 52,000 miles on it, well under the national average. I have been replacing tie rod ends approx. every 10,000 miles. I have replaced a total of 7 in 45,000 miles. I am not on my 2nd coolant leak. I have had a shack in the frontend ever since I put new tires on, which one was bulged and needed to go back to replace it. Dash lights have burnt out and need replacing. I can't even image what I would be feeling if I hadn't have gotten the 7 year/70,000 warranty at $100 deductible!!! It's up in June...Think I'll be getting my a Ford or Chevy!!

Third year of enjoyment

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4dr Wagon (4.0L 6cyl 6A)

Having purchased our Pacifica as it came off a Chrysler lease in 2009, we could not be happier with the performance, handling and comfort that we enjoy. Our Pacifica is the W.P. Chrysler Signature Series, and this mean upgraded leather, radio and other features that make this an enjoyable vehicle. The interior is a dream. The Navigation is in the center of the speedometer and is simular to heads up displays. The capability to handle 7 (that is right 7) DVD's between the radio and the external changer makes long trip with Grandkids actually fun. The four captain chairs (all heated with individual controls) are extremely comfortable. Toad trips of 6 to 7 hours are not unheard.

Best value

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4dr Wagon (4.0L 6cyl 6A)

59,980 miles and not a single problem. $17 oil changes at the dealer and lifetime powertrain waranty. Compare even the oil changes to local Honda dealer at $39.99 and over a few years it will add up. I think a lot of the Pacifica owners are having issues with the 4 speed and the 3.5 liter. The 6 speed and the 4.0 have been flawless. Comfort is excellent as are the looks. Bought the car brand new and havn't had one regret. Probably buy another one soon, buick is getting old and I looked at the price of a 2008 Toyota Sienna $29,000, when a 2008 Pacifica is going for $13,000 with the same miles. No brainer.

The pacifica was under-rated!

Vehicle: 2007 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4dr Wagon (4.0L 6cyl 6A)

I owned a 2007 Pacifica Touring FWD for 4 years and generally loved the car. It had adequate power, had an extremely comfortable ride and a huge cargo area when the 2nd row seats were lowered. The handling was excellent and the fuel mileage was adequate for the 6 cylinder engine.

Great used buy...if you're a

Vehicle: 2007 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4dr Wagon (4.0L 6cyl 6A)

Let's first all agree that cars are built to break. Every car is going to have problems and failures...it's how much you enjoy driving the car and how practical it is for your particular needs that makes a car worth it. That being said...I love driving the pacifica. It rides great. It's quiet. It's loaded with features. It's safe. It's big enough to haul to 2 kids also. I've had to replace the usual Chrysler culprits like suspension bushings and motor mounts. The regular maintenance of the car (oil,brakes,transmission fluid) are all on par if not above par with every other car I've owned.

What's New for 2007

The Chrysler Pacifica gets a host of revisions for 2007. Under the hood, all models except the base front-drive trim get a new 4.0-liter V6 matched to a new six-speed automatic transmission. Inside, instrument graphics have been revised, a new audio system with MP3 capability has been added and base models now get an analog clock. The rear-seat entertainment system also gets a larger 8-inch video screen. In terms of safety, side curtain airbags and stability control are now standard on all models, and a backup camera and backup sensor have been added to the options list on some trims. Wrapping up the changes to the 2007 Pacifica is updated front-end styling.

Introduction

A wagon that's part minivan and part SUV, the Chrysler Pacifica luxury crossover attempts to be all things to all people. In many respects, it succeeds. The Pacifica's sculpted lines give it a look that's more stylish than that of your typical ho-hum kiddie hauler, but with room for six, it handles this function without breaking a sweat. Best of all, the Pacifica gets you there with a nimbleness that belies its capacious heft.

Updates have been made this year that enhance the vehicle's family-friendly quotient. Stability control, side curtain airbags and a tire-pressure monitoring system are now standard on all trims. Also, a backup camera and backup sensor have been added to the options list on certain models.

The 2007 Chrysler Pacifica also gets a new 4.0-liter V6 that makes 253 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This should address the sluggish feel of the previous 3.5-liter V6. True, that engine still made 250 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque, so this 4.0-liter doesn't look that much stronger, at least on paper. But the spec sheet doesn't tell the whole story. While the new engine doesn't imbue the Pacifica with delusions of drag-racing trophies, it does feel considerably more powerful and torquey, especially at low speeds.

The Pacifica fills a need for those seeking a family hauler that's outside the box, and we're impressed. We like the crossover's sharp styling, able handling and long list of luxury and safety features. However, we're troubled by the less-than-stellar reliability of early models. Quality has no doubt improved since the vehicle's introduction in model-year 2004. Still, it's fair to say that if you place a premium on headache-free ownership, you'll probably be better served by an offering like the Honda Pilot or Subaru B9 Tribeca.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Chrysler Pacifica comes in three trim levels: base, Touring and Limited. All trims are available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The standard features list on the base model includes five-passenger seating, air-conditioning, keyless entry, full power accessories, power front seats and a CD/MP3 player with steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. Step up to the Touring trim and you also get dual-zone climate control, HomeLink, three-row six-passenger seating and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter. The top-of-the-line Limited trim adds a power liftgate; leather upholstery; heated seats; automatic dual-zone climate control; wood trim; driver-seat memory, an upgraded sound system with a six-disc, in-dash CD changer; and a rear DVD entertainment system. Major options, depending on the model, include a navigation system with a backup camera, park assist, a premium sound system and xenon HID headlights.

Powertrains and Performance

Pop the hood of the base front-wheel-drive Pacifica and you'll find a 3.8-liter V6 good for 200 hp. Powering all-wheel-drive base models and all Touring and Limited models is a more muscular 4.0-liter, 253-hp V6. Front-wheel-drive base model Pacificas get a four-speed automatic transmission, while all other models get a six-speed.

Safety

Side curtain airbags for all rows are standard on all Pacificas, along with a tire-pressure monitoring system and a stability control system that includes traction control and brake assist. A backup camera is also available. The Pacifica scored a flawless five stars in the NHTSA's frontal and side-impact crash tests. The IIHS gives the Pacifica a top rating of "Good" for frontal-offset crash protection.

Interior Design and Special Features

With the base model Pacifica, you get seating for five; there is a rear bench that seats three, but no third row. Touring and Limited models are equipped with second-row bucket seats and accommodate six passengers thanks to a split-folding third-row seat. A surprisingly accommodating entry height makes getting in and out of the Pacifica a breeze. Both second- and third-row chairs fold flat, affording the Pacifica a fair degree of versatility. However, cramped legroom means that the wagon's third row is best left for the wee ones. Cargo room is generous, opening up to 92.2 cubic feet in the base model and 79.5 in the Touring and Limited (due to the third-row seat).

Driving Impressions

The 2007 Chrysler Pacifica handles with a confidence that surpasses that of most minivans and SUVs. Steering feedback is solid, though some drivers might find body motions to be excessive when it's driven over bumps. All in all, however, the Pacifica delivers more driving enjoyment than you'd expect from a family hauler. In terms of acceleration, the wagon's robust curb weight dulls acceleration for models with the smaller V6.
