Pros: Easy top up and down
Cons: wide turning radius
Advice: If you want a low cost convertibleI have the 2.4 Turbo 180hp. I am 6'3' and this is a very comfortable car with ample leg room for my frame. the car is extremely quiet for a convertible. It rides more comfortable than my 2001 Dodge Durango did. The turbo gives it some get up and go for a four cylinder! I get a lot of looks and wow comments from people. This car is a winner. And to top it off, it's fun to drive !!!!!It's not the boring run of the mill sedan.
Pros: comfort and all the features
Cons: little more power would have been excellent. Hemi?
Advice: Best car for the money! Solid feel, comfortable.Great Handleing ans solid feel.
Cons: Gas Mileage
Advice: Don't waitWe bought a fully loaded 2004 AWD Pacifica in April this year. We've put almost 12,000 miles on it and loved every mile. I did some extensive research comparing the Chrysler Pacifica, Nissan Murano, Infinity FX35, Acura MD, and the Lexus RX330. Although many of these cars have their high points [price unfortunately being one], the fit, finish, amenities and price of the Chrysler out weighed everything else in my search. I started this search with my heart set on the Infinity but the luxury, roominess, price and the styling of the Chrysler won me over. That and excellent sales and support of the folks at my local Chrysler dealer have made me a big advocate. I did rate the gas mileage as my least favorite feature, but I routinely get 17.5-18 mpg mixed driving and as much as 24 on the highway. I don't believe this is that out of line for the category, but a little more economy wouldn't hurt.
Pros: H.O. engine performance
Cons: Wish I had the 'vette's bolsters to hold me tight in the turns
Advice: Don't buy the car if you wouldn't want to hear the word cute applied to your ride by ladiesThe car with the High Output engine can really scoot. You might find it hard to believe that I traded a '96 'Vette for it, but my body thanks me every time I climb in or out of it.
Cons: Heavy seats
Advice: Get one.I bought this vehicle brand new and it now has 25,+++ miles. It hasn't given us any problem whatsoever. The only time it's in the shop is for routine maintenance. It's very comfortable, spacious and quiet. A lot more efficient and practical than the 2001 Chevy Suburban LT that I used to own (Not very space efficient - got rid of it right away). Gas mileage is about 18 city, 24 highway. Trip computer and DVD are really nice. I'm planning of getting the 2005 model because of the new extras, especially the stow and go seats. With the zero percent interest and the rebates, it's a very good buy.
Pros: solid feel with engine response
Cons: seats need 6 way electronic adjustment
Advice: Enjoyment may take on the place of existing hobbies. Take the long way to work.Wow! Took my boss to the dealership during lunch to pick up her four year old Cruiser from an oil change - and I test drove the GT with the top down! You won't leave the dealership without one! My Lexus SC 400 is now in the yard with a 'For Sale' sign on it. I just wish my Navigation system could also find a buyer for used cars!
Pros: Stow N Go Seats
Cons: Middle seat in 3rd seat only has a 2 point seatbelt, should have 3 point
Advice: Do a feature & price comparison with competition - Chrysler wins.Good balance of power and fuel economy. Handling is secure and stable. Comfortable seating with good leg room in all 3 rows. Stow N Go is awesome – provides massive storage in middle and back when seats are up, easily converts to carry cargo. 3rd row seat is split fold, which increases versatility. Has side curtain airbags for all 3 rows and remote power doors. Lots of luxury features, such as trip computer, for the money. Ford and GM vans don't compare, and Toyota and Honda are overpriced.
