2007 Chrysler Pacifica Limited 4.0

Summary:

Best CUV made

Faults:

No complaints, nothing has gone wrong.

General Comments:

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.

2007 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 4.0L

Summary:

A very BIG and comfortable tourer

Faults:

Nothing major or minor has gone wrong with this car.

I have not had it into the dealership except for regular servicing.

General Comments:

This cross over is BIG and extremely comfortable.

At 6 foot 4, I have more than enough head, leg and hip room on very comfortable seats.

Mine has 4 buckets and a smallish 3 seater in the rear, good for small people.

All seats fold flat, which results in a huge luggage capacity.

The 4.0 litre engine for 2007 models is a big improvement on prior year models and operates with a low throaty growl when pressed.

The 6 speed tranny does seem to shift a lot, but I guess that is normal for a 6 speed.

The only negatives I can think of are relatively poor city mileage (13L/100km) and, until you are used to it, blind sight spots in the rear. However, if you use your mirrors properly and are always aware of the surrounding traffic, this is no longer a problem.

Overall, a super driver with 255 HP performance.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
