2004 Chrysler Pacifica Luxury FWD 3.5L V6 from North America
Absolutely nothing, the car is just as new (of course it is very spoilt by me)
The Pacifica is seriously a great vehicle, especially when compared to the older Chryslers (pre Zetche). It has very fast steering and excellent turning radius that makes up for the bad visibility towards the rear, and people who keep complaining about hitting the rear of their Pacificas need to know, that yes, it is a large vehicle and thus requires extra care when backing up. The interior is phenomenal, the designers were smart to leave the softer, more expensive leather in the middle inserts and the harder, more durable on the outside as this is the part that most often gets wrinkles and breaks after normal use. The engine is strong, but the transmission only has 4 gears that are geared too tall as to save gas, but it ends up overhwlming the engine feeling underpowered and consuming a lot of gas. It definitely needs another gear (the Subaru B9 Tribeca has a boxer6 engine with similar output, yet it gets 2 more mpg and a 1.5 second avg. faster 0-60, just cause of a better suited transmission) However, the vehicle rides like a charm, is extremely quiet, takes bumps and road imperfections extremely well. The interior has very nice touches (the wood looks very nice, so do the satin touches). It is a great vehicle and will definitely buy other Chrysler products after owning this one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Give it a while.
It will be interesting to see if you're still singing the praises of Chrysler in a couple of years.

OK the Trip computer screen decided to go out, all gone, doesn't show anything. Mileage 34,000 and its 4years old, out of warranty! So I have to get it checked see how much it's gonna cost me.
