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


Review

I have had some many problems with my pacific. It started over heating in June 2009 and now I'm in the process of purchasing a new engine. It stopped on the highway and I had to have it towed to a repair shop. $4500.00 for new engine. With a 72 month loan, I owe $4800.00. Add $4500.00 to it. I'm convinced that Chrysler was aware of the problems and high maintenance. Oh, that's way it's no longer in production. Hum!

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


Review

We bought this car new. One unique problem that was fixed even though the car was out of warranty. Headliner buckled and was replaced. No mechanical problems, it drives very nice and the ride is smooth. A problem common to all SUV's I've had is the side visibilty. Pillars make you have to look carefully. Highway mileage is over 21 mpg with air on at over 75MPH. No oil use like some others say. We have the small V6


Best Features

Drivability, comfort, height over other vehicles give a good view of the road


Worst Features

We've purchasd over 50 new cars in our life, mostly GM. This one ranks in our top five.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car in 2006 after renting one and trading in a 2001 Ford minivan. I thought that this was gonna be a long lasting relationship with this car but I have already replaced both axles, and in 2008 I stayed at the shop with it. Now I took it back about a week ago to the dealership because I heard a humming sound and no air along with water hitting my left foot. As soon as I can I am done with Chrysler cars.

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


Review

Don't Buy! I bought this car w/ 27kmi & from beginning it consumed oil. They denied it was a problem for yrs. Had to change oil at 2500mi or it would run dry. Struggled w/ Chrysler to fix for years. Finally, at 80k, w/ a lot of screaming at manager. threats of attorneys, & 50 posts printed out of others w/ same problem, they looked into it further. Consumed 3/4 quart oil every 500mi after the first 1000mi. Finally they replaced engine. Mechanic said it was written all over engine. 3 broken motor mounts, exhaust leak, computer malfunction all not covered under top Chrysler extended warranty. $500 each repair. At least warranty paid for engine. Just dumped the car for a more reliable Toyota.


Best Features

Love the styling of car. Captain chairs in 2nd row. Auto HVAC system, no need to constantly adjust. Rear air in all 3 rows and rear center console.


Worst Features

Stand behind the vehicle and fix obvious recall items in oil consumption and motor mounts. Poor visibility in reverse. Broken motor mounts are common and $150 each plus labor. Lots of rattles and hwy road noise gets louder with age. Forget talking on bluetooth and being able to hear. 17MPG

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


Review

We bought our Pacifica used in 06 with 28000 miles on it. Too good to be true.At 34050 miles The oil was completely gone, and there was one oil change done between that time. Good thing we bought the extended warranty. WRONG! Chrysler claimed it was our fault for not checking oil every time we bought gas. After months of fighting with Chrysler we had to give in and purchase a new used engine for $5500. We are now stuck with this car, we are so upside down its ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and upgrade now before its too late.
