We purchased the '07 Pacifica in mid-April 2011. I had been looking off and on for a year. Most of the reviews for the vehicle had been positive and it fit the bill for what we needed. I wanted the third row seat option but didn't want to drive a bus. It is the perfect size for the four of us and a dog. I would highly recommend an extended warranty on any used car especially one that has no warranty. Before a long trip, I always have my vehicle checked and serviced. We just got back from a road trip and at the end of the trip I started having what I thought were transmission problems. I took it in and it needed new motor mounts. I was so thankful that we had the extended warranty. Just goes to show that you never know what will happen or when. Overall, the car has been a delight to drive. I have the touring edition that has all the options (leather, sunroof, dvd) except navigation. This is definitely the most luxourious car that I have ever owned. In fact, my husband commented on how much nicer our personal vehicle was than the rental that I had (a suv) while mine was being repaired. If you want extra space without going into a minivan, this vehicle is perfect. I really wish that Chrysler would start making the Pacifica again.
I wish they still made them! Handles well, ok power, brakes well!
I have looked around for a while searching for a vehicle that would work for my family needs,have plenty of room, and still look professional. This car does just that! One of the problems I found with most of the "crossovers" was the feeling you get while someone else is driving. It was easy to get carsick because of the short wheel base. When the driver would stop you felt like you were about to be tossed out of the vehicle, regardless of how smooth they applied the brake. Unlike the Nissan extera which make you feel terrible unless you are driving. The only downside is the lack of fuel efficiency. Mine only gets about 17 mPG average. I was hoping for more since it is so small. But that is a small price to pay for the getup and go that it has! It is nice to be able to hit the petal and this thing jump! Overall, a great car for a great price. It is like driving a luxury vehicle for a normal price. I love it!
