"When I purchased my fully loaded Pacifica, it had 95,000 miles on it. I had no problems out of this car until I hit 150,000 miles. At that point the trans went out, once I repaired that I thought that I would be driving it for a while without no problem, but at 175,00 the head gasket blew and the mechanic said I needed a new engine!! The cost to repair was over $2000!! At that point I decided to trade it in and the dealer only gave me $600 on a truck that I paid $14,000 for 4 years ago. I would never get another Chrysler, because they are known to have transmission problems. If you get one with low miles then you're ok, but don't expect this truck to last over 150,000 miles without any major repairs. I was so disapointed with this truck that I'm buying a Toyota as my next car, because Chrysler made me dislike American cars!!! Buyer beware of this truck if it has high mileage on it!!!"

Absolutely loved this vehicle!

"I absolutely loved this car when I owned one. Unfortunately I was deployed for two years and decided to sell it instead of putting it in storage. It sold almost instantly and even after I sold it I had countless calls asking if I still had it. I've been trying to find one since I've gotten back and have no luck so far. The best vehicle I've ever owned and hate to see chrysler stopped making them after 2008. Can't wait and wont rest till I get me another one."

"I LOVE this car. I bought this after I owned a mini van. I needed something that had power to tow and yet stylish. I almost bought a Ford Focus but I did not like the dash. I looked at this and fell in love instantly. Other than it tends to gulp a bunch of gas I have no real bad things to say about this vehicle. I wish Chrysler still made these. But for a used/new to me vehicle I have had no complaints."

"My daughter owns a pacifica and she loves it. She also has an audi 6. But the pacifica is by far the favorite. Very efficient in gas."

"I had a few other choices including the GM Acadia (and it's Saturn copy), the hugely expensive Acura MDX or a Ford thing (forgot the name). I have never thought I made a wrong choice. I drove it hard the first 2 years and have since driven it only 5-7K miles per year (we have multiple cars and I work from home for the last 4 years). The breaks need work next month as I live at the top of a large hill but other than an oil change every 5-6K miles I have not had a lick of work done on her. I have the AWD Touring version with 19" tires and love it. Very comfortable, lots of power, love catching and passing speeding arseholes on the highways. Fold-down rear-row works for my dogs to have a sleepy place when traveling. Mileage is @ 20mpg avg since purchase 7 years ago. Great vehicle from Chrysler."

"This is a great car for safety and ride and reliability. The leather seats are heated which is nice for cold winters. The 3.8 engine is powerful enough to handle this car with ease."
