2007 Chrysler Pacifica Limited 4.0
Best CUV made
No complaints, nothing has gone wrong.
I am a VP Sales for an auto parts supply company. I am in Detroit every week, which is about a 3 to 4 hour drive from my home.
This vehicle has performed well beyond my expectations. My wife leased a 2004 Pacifica AWD with the smaller engine and 4 speed automatic trans. We got about 18MPG. With this newer bigger engine and 6 speed tranny, my road mileage is always 26 MPG or more. The bigger engine has great response and the car really rides and handles well. My son and daughter-in-law to be, are taking it on the honeymoon.
I can't say enough good about this car. Too bad Chrysler is not going to make them anymore.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I know several people who own these vehicles. All of them rave about them. The mileage is incredible for such a heavy car with a large engine. My last Dodge lasted 240,000+ miles before I sold it (in perfect condition) so I know Chrysler builds some excellent vehicles.

I fell in love with my Pacifica.

I haven't heard the same. Most of the people I know who have them say they don't like them. I'm not bashing Chrysler products, in fact, out of the Big 3, Chrysler is the only one I trust, but I just haven't heard very good things about the Pacifica.

Agreed. The vehicle had incredible handling for its size back then, but Chrysler made the mistake of using a poor engine/transmission combo. Both were unsuited for the Pacifica's hefty mass and were its weak points. The electrical systems were also a bit finicky as well. It also didn't help that they were so dang expensive.
It was a great idea for Chrysler, but it performed badly when it hit dealerships. Sales and reception was weak and the model was dropped after around 4 years.
However, despite its problems, it did garner a reputation for being very comfortable, having a good list of amenities, and having a lot of room for a crossover.
