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
Never get over 18 mpg on highway, lucky those who do. I get the clumping also, and my pedal sticks (my 1996 Saturn did this also) how annoying. I love the style, the drive, the look. I wish that there were no console in the middle of the 2nd seats for ease of getting into the 3rd row-- my kids have footprints all over it.
If you buy one, be sure to ask or have the Torque converter checked because there have been many replaced (including mine) in this vehicle, which I found out after the fact. The vehicle would start shuttering in the rear going up hills and they found out the TQ was the culprit. A new one fixes it, but can be spendy if no warranty. Otherwise its an awesome vehicle that I love driving!
Seat controls, back seat space, Hatch space, driving ease,
Blind spots, smaller rear window, Check torque converter before purchase!
I have a back problem and was looking for a car with a smooth ride and I got it in my '07 Pacifica. Wonderful ride, feel very safe, beautiful on the outside, get lots of compliments, reliable and the best vehicle I've owned. Easy to get in and out of, tons of storage and great features. What more could anyone want?
8 way power adjustable drivers seat, ride is fantastic, looks gorgeous, quality inside and out is amazing.
