2007 Chrysler PacificaSales VP - Virginia Beach, VA05/22/2010
My wife and I went looking for an Infiniti FX35 and came home with the Pacifica. The appearance of the Pacifica has people asking me what kind of car it is all the time. The 4.0 Litre 6 Cyl. has plenty of pickup, but the shifting could be more smooth; my only "complaint." I've been averaging 21.7 MPG with a combination of local and highway driving. The front and rear leather seating is extremely comfortable with as much rear leg room as a limo. The 3rd fold down seating for 6 is great for kids and adequate for adults. There's plenty of cargo space for those bags of mulch and wood for home projects. It's stylish and classy for taking other couples to dinner and a real AWD work horse on the weekends.
Quiet and Comfortable
2004 Chrysler PacificaFamily Of Five - Chicago, IL10/01/2010
The Pacifica has a great ride, very comfortable seats and a very quiet interior. Conveniently located cup holders, dual temp controls, and center console storage that does not interfere with the arm rests make for a comfortable trip experience, even the kids had no complaints. Rear power receptacle (cigarette lighter style) makes it easy to run electronics from the third row seating. The same is available for the second row as well. Great sounds system allows you to adjust sound volume for each row so you can talk more comfortably up front while backseat passengers listen to music or vice versa.
We have found only two drawbacks with the Pacifica. First is cargo room. The Pacifica seats 6, so with a family of five we have only the room behind the third row seat plus the room from laying the second third row seat down. This is not a lot of room, barely allowing for 5 suitcases and a cooler. I would recommend a model with a roof rack so you can add on a cargo carrier. Second is gas mileage. So far the best we have gotten is 17 highway as opposed to the promised 24.
New to the crossover vehicles!

I went from a sedan to the crossover becuase I have two LARGE dogs, and wanted to be able to transport them without ruining my car!
I'm getting used to driving a larger vehicle. It's a little difficult to see when you are backing up, but not impossible.
My husband drives a HUGE hootie-tootie Lexus....and he complimented the smoothness of the Pacifica when we were driving on the highway....I thought that was pretty nice!!
