Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The overall driving experience is exceptional
Cons: Wish mine had heated seats
Advice: Test drive before you read reviews.Excellent handling and comfort.
Pros: The entire package
Cons: The front seats heater
Advice: Take this for a long drive, than drive everything else on your list, you'll be soldWe have owned this sports tourer since June, 2005 and now have 8500 miles on it, taking several long distance trips without any problems other than a noise our dealer handled during one our free oil changes. Those reviews that complain about their Pacifica are either overly pickey or aren't true drivers, because this cross over is fun to drive and delivers real confidence to the driver that they are safe and secure in there 4 wheel world.
Cons: Lack of power
Advice: Determine what you wantBought a 2005 Limited with all the options. Love the car, has every bell and whistle and is extremely comfortable. So far good in snow and rain. Gas mileage is less than expected; we're getting around 16. Only other thing we're unhappy with is the lack of power; trying to get over the mountains is much harder than our old V8 truck, but that also had gas mileage of 10 or less so guess this is to be expected. Otherwise, love the car totally. Great features, great comfort. People stop all the time and ask how I like it.
Pros: Navigation in cluster
Advice: Test drive a Touring or Limited model & you'll come home with one.Took a chance of buying this car. First time owning american car. I'm glad I made the purchase. Gas mileage is better than other big SUV. I had 2 lexus rx but the Pacifica is more comfortable to drive.
Cons: Gas mileage
Advice: Buy something else. Chrysler does not respond to problems.We bought this car according to the gas mileage it stated. Chrysler Co is dishonest about this vehicle.
Pros: distinctive styling
Cons: gas mileage could be better, but driving habits do affect results!
Advice: Go for it! It's a fantastic vehicle!The Pacifica handles extremely well. This vehicle gives you three vehicles in one. Comfort and convenience of a luxury car... SUV capabilites and three rows of seating like a minivan (although definitely not a van!)I absolutely love my Pacifica.
Pros: style, ride, interior and exterior appearance, power rear hatch
Cons: Could use a little more power and a little more head room in the third row
Advice: Get all of the options that you can afford. They make the vehicle even more enjoyableI can't believe how smooth this suv drives. I purchased a touring model fully loaded with every conceivable option. The gas mileage is good for an suv, I'm getting 18 mpg. I love driving the vehicle, the fit and finish are great. I get compliments all the time. The power hatch is very convenient when my hands are full. The satellite radio with 5.1 surround sound stereo is awesome.
