I bought this vehicle because of the safety rating and I have kept it because it is so much more. We had the factory DVD player installed when we bought the car. My Pacifica is the Touring model and tour we have. In the last year we have been to the Ozark mountains, Great Smokey Mountains and the Gulf coast. The Pacifica has given absolutely NO problems or hic-ups. The vehicle is comfortable on long drives. It is very stable in town and on the road. While gas milage is not super, it is good for a three year old vehicle with a 255hp 24 valve engine. The top achieved so far has been 25 mpg. The navigation can be upgraded as needed simply by acquiring the dvd from the system manufacturer, who still supports the system with updates, and load it into the "brain" in the rear compartment of the car. Dual A/C, heated seats, all leather (not the Pleather that others manufactures use), Navigation, rear view camera and backup sensors complete the package. I wish that they were still in production today, because I would love to see where they would have progressed to. Highly Recommended, Period.
I have had one now for a year and still love all but one thisng about it. Mine averages 18 miles to the gallon and I drive mostly on the hwys. the seating is roomy enogh for large adults in the back. The third row requires shorter legs, but it is ideal for a car full of kids. There is lots of storage in the doors great for books and such. It is a very smooth ride. When traveling with friends and family, this car is first on the list to be used. It is the [erfect car to make sure everyone is completely comfortable. My favorite car ever.
The Pacifica is an excellent car for the money!! The standard features go above and beyond what you would expect. The ride is smooth, the handling is great, and it looks a million times better than the minivan I traded in for it! ( I did need to practice parking it, but it takes no time to get a feel for how much clearance you have on the front end) You must test drive it, you'll be hooked as soon as you step on the gas!!
