Owned the Pacifica for a while now, and still love it! Wanted the base model so we would only have two rows of seats. Engine performance is very good for only 200hp and a 4,400lb curb weight. Really powerful around town, breaks the front tires loose easily. Passing power (45-70) isn't that great, but not too bad. Handles curves very well considering larger size. Surprisingly, its a very good tow vehicle. Hardly can tell the trailer 2,000lb trailer is back there. Interior has held up well, but the seats get dirty very easily. Regardless, interior is beautiful and well put together. Love the sleek exterior, the car gets many compliments. I average 22mpg. Around 18 in the city, 25 on the highway.
Heated leather seats, 6-CD changer, towing ability, self-leveling rear, DVD player, folding second row (use it when camping, tons of stuff will fit in the back), rear seat legroom, cargo capacity, impressive gas mileage for size and weight, bright easy-to-read gauges, timeless sleek exterior design.
Reduce weight a bit. It would improve the base 3.8L model alot in acceleration and gas mileage. But, I didn't buy the 3.8L for its acceleration. Otherwise, nothing. Pacifica is an excellent choice for anyone that wants a roomy, stylish, economical, smooth-riding, comfortable, family car with utility
