2018 Pacifica Hybrid Pros & Cons
Paul W., 11/30/2017
Last two items posted below are new. (1) The biggest concern - will the 2018 Pacifica Hybrid be eligible for the $7500 federal tax credit? As of today the government website, https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/taxevb.shtml shows only the 2017 model with a tax credit. The dealer misled us if we don't get the tax credit. (2) No driver memory seat even in the Limited model - pain when drivers need different seat & mirror settings (3) The "REAL" hybrid mpg once the stored electric charge is depleted after ~35 miles, is ~30 mpg with a mix of freeway and city (4) Tailgate opening height is not adjustable like the Odyssey - tailgate intentionally opens high for tall people and will likely hit the garage door when parked inside and then automatically close (5) Many of the controls are embedded in the display - in some cases would have preferred actual switches (6) The 120 volt charger that comes with the car will take 14 hours to charge fully depleted batteries. Will need to spend ~$600 for a 240 volt level 2 charger and have someone do the wiring for a quick 2 hour charge. (7) Very limited on storage compartments. (8) Mixed reviews on the 3rd row seat head rests and access. (9) The driver seat is not comfortable for short folks, edge of seat hits in the back of the knee joint (10) The U-Connect display has failed 8 times in two months, so far display recovers after ignition is turned off for a period of time. Failure modes include (2x) totally blank non-functional screen (ironically back-up camera display still works), (1x) back-up camera locked on and did not turn off when driving, (1x) vertical blue and white strips - could see icons but couldn't select, (4x) display asked for radio security code blocking rest of display. THE GOOD: (1) Handles well, nice interior and exterior design (2) Looks like we will get the CA environmental $1500 rebate and qualify for a CA green HOV sticker (3) UPDATE 7/2018 - We received the Federal $7500 tax credit, a CA environmental $1500 rebate check, $400 from SCE and the HOV sticker. (4) UPDATE 7/2018 - After multiple visits to Chrysler dealers and communicating with the Chrysler U-Connect rep - after 6 months Chrysler replaced our radio which had been frequently failing. Chrysler installed a refurbished replacement radio and we have had no further problems. In addition Chrysler gave us a reasonable cash compensation for our inconvenience with the radio.
EVERY DAY IS A THRILL
Tony Bifulco, 2/25/2018
I can almost get by every day with a charge from the level one charger and not use gasoline. I go weeks at a time without stopping for gas and average 75-80 mpg local driving. Using a/c and heat cuts down on the mileage. The electronics makes you aware of maintenance needs and cars performance. The second row of seats pop out and with the third row down i fit 2 twin mattresses and box springs and frames with room to spare. My only glitch seems to be the control panel screen goes out occasionally and I have not had it back for service yet to get it checked out . Would liked to have had the memory on front seat position. The driver assist features are great. I don't see any significant change in my electric bill.
U Connect theater systems corrupted
KK, 5/8/2018
A few months ago, we purchased the 2018 hybrid pacifica limited brand new, fully loaded, $50k. The U connect theater system has not worked since we purchased the vehicle. The dealership was unable to fix the corrupted system, and we were told there was no fix available. I was told ALL of the 2018 theater systems have this issue, and that my system could not be replaced or repaired. So, I am stuck with a brand new vehicle with a theater system that does not work, and even under warranty could not be fixed. I spoke to several Chrysler representatives, spent countless hours on the phone, and the customer service was horrible. Had I known that Chrysler does not uphold their warranty guarantees on their VERY expensive systems, I would have bought a different vehicle.
great car, but media center screen broke
Claudia G, 2/21/2018
I love the car. Really wanted a plug in hybrid mini van and this was the only one available. Mileage is fabulous. Too bad that the media center screen broke after only 3 days. There seems to be a problem because even after 3 months of this happening I still do not have a screen replacement....!!!!!!

More about the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is not only the first hybrid minivan — that alone is a milestone achievement for this class — but it's also a plug-in hybrid. The Hybrid doesn't rely solely on its gasoline engine to help generate electricity; it can tap it from the utility company. Fully charged, you can expect to drive about 33 miles on battery power alone.

As a unique vehicle in its own right, the Pacifica Hybrid offers a fairly simple trim structure: three models, with just a few stand-alone options each. The entry-level Touring Plus features keyless entry and ignition, tri-zone automatic climate control, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. For a couple thousand dollars more, you can get the Touring L's power liftgate, heated front seats and leather upholstery. It's a good deal, but you might as well pay a bit more and get the top-trim Limited.

The Limited's exceptional list of added features include hands-free doors and liftgate, ventilated front seats, upgraded leather, adaptive cruise control, automated parking, premium audio and a rear-seat entertainment system. A tri-pane sunroof and larger wheels are the only additional options for this otherwise fully loaded model.

Although most Hybrid models carry a higher MSRP than their non-hybrid counterparts, keep in mind that shoppers buying a new Pacifica Hybrid are eligible for tax credits, in addition to any state or local incentives. That helps reduce the sticker shock on this hybrid minivan. Use Edmunds' shopping and comparison tools to better survey the full minivan landscape, but if you want a hybrid minivan, your choice for now is clear.
