2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 9A)


Review

Owned this van since April 2017 and have almost 16K miles on it. Has been flawless, except for about 3 recalls (software fixes and seat belt fix) which were all completed in one hour visits. Combined mpg is about 23 and it lives up to its reputation beating out the competition on the comparison tests on youTube. This is my 4th Chrys van and the last one was a 2012 T&C Touring L plus. Granddaughter was so impressed with the van she wrote a school paper on it..... buy it you'll love it. Tech and Entertainment options are the best.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 9A)


Review

The fuel mileage is very poor and way below the posted estimate. Vehicle seems to idle faster than necessary. The van does steer much tighter in turns than our previous 2011 limited. It is quieter than our prior van somewhat. The windshield/roof line slopes back low over the front entry so you really have to duck your head while entering. The shift knob does not click between settings and is next to the fan control and radio knobs so you have to look closely when reaching for one of the controls. The gauge and center map display lighting is not easily adjustable for day/night driving.

Review

The gearshift lever has been replaced by a rotary dial. This dial is dangerously close to the radio volume dial. The driver could accidentally move the gear dial, thinking that he was reaching for the radio volume. In my estimation, this was very poor engineering. Why could not the previous model's dash mounted gearshift lever been retained?

Review

We had a Pacifica van and had a slamming in transmission hitch progressed to more frequently. After having van in shop 5 times and they could not find anything we traded it in. Have girlfriend who also had transmission stop working during snowy season and they were trapped on freeway with children inside. We took van to dealer multiple times and of course their line was we put it on the machine shows nothing. I asked them to drive it and they said they found nothing. There is documented transmission issues with this van. Unfortunately we traded it in to buy a more reliable vehicle. Plelase read reviews before purchasing this beautiful van.
