2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We are very happy with our Pacifica and have owned it almost 5 years (80K) now with never an non-maintenance repair (replaced all rotors and pads from Brake Planet at 60K mi for under $200). Once a window quit working that was left open in the rain, but it repaired itself after a couple days. It cruises at 75-80 mph all day and gets 22-23 mpg, 60 mph gets 25-26 mpg. Town is 20-21 mpg. We have the 3.5L touring. We pull a 2000lb boat with no problems. It has a very sturdy chassis. We have noticed oil consumption, but as I read on here years ago, just check the oil. We change oil every 3000 mi. Wife is happy and never wants another car. Ours is a good one, others on here were not so fortunate.


Best Features

Love the comfortable seating and storage, auto climate control, dash layout, DVD system and wireless headphones. Quiet ride on SUV sized tires. Auto open hatch, Sat radio, roof rack are nice conveniences that we use. Hauls anything (piano, framed door, lumbar, ???. Bright H.Lights, courtesy lights.


Worst Features

Lower hipline for better visibility. Radio controls from back seat besides remote.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring AWD 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased car originally in Nov 2004. First time we purchased American and was really hoping car would last 8-10 years. Had all the maintenance performed at regular intervals. In Dec 2009 check engine light came on. Apparently a TSB for engine sludge if car is mainly driven in city (as my wife has). Now car bucks and hesitates. We've had it back multiple times and now have given up and purchasing a new one, as this is our people mover and the check engine light will not go off. Overall, the interior of the car was very nice. Seats were comfortable and material quality good, but after we had our third child, the 2/2/2 seating was a problem- although not Chryslers fault. Great while lasted..but


Best Features

Interior was very nice, ride quality smooth. Did not handle as big as it was.


Worst Features

Needed more power, reliability

2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring AWD 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We bought a certified used car. It has had more problems then my 2001 Honda, and needed a new battery before the Honda. It is nice to have the seat warmers, DVD for the kids, but not sure the trade-off of having to take it to the dealership at least 2x a year is worth it.


Best Features

Seat Warmers, DVD player, leather seats


Worst Features

I won't buy American again.
