We bid farewell to our long-term 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Outside of a few issues that the dealer addressed, the Pacifica has been a real champ.

      Lots of positives being talked about with the Hybrid version of the Pacifica. A major drawback for me is that you lose stow and go in the second row...where the Hybrid's battery goes. No way do I want to lose stow and go in the second row. I love having stow and go space in both second and third row, Something to think about for those considering the Hybrid.

      Did I hear thirty thousand miles at the beginning of this video? How's the tranny? Chrysler minivan transmissions are notoriously horrible and undependable. Was it still shifting smoothly? I owned an '05 T&C and it had a shuddering clunk when it came to a stop.
       I do love the look of this new Pacifica. Vans are still cool...

      I rented one and used it for a week long trip to Florida from Texas. All of us loved it for many reasons. Ended up buying a 2019 Pacifica and so far we all love it. Yes...it could have problems and might not. But the same can be said for any brand. I owned a Toyota 4X4 and hated it. Had engine problems very early on after owning it. I have not owned a Toyota since...and never want to. All brands have their problems.

      FCA sells more Dodge Grand Caravans than Pacificas. The Pacifica is a refined minivan, the Dodge is more budget friendly. I hesitate to say a discount off sticker close to 5K new can be found on the Grand Caravan.

      He basically told us why to not to buy it. Look at the issues he had and it’s brand new. Fiat Chrysler had it with the town and country and older reliable better built technology. That’s why they didn’t change it for years. No wonder they’re selling more grand caravans then Pacifica’s . Nice job fiat for ruining the van

      Dumbass....the caravan has been out about 10 years more than this van. This van has only been available for 2 years. EVERY new vehicle has some issues. Go buy a new oddysey and then have fun rebuilding the tranny. With good insurance it will replace your windshield no problem. You can't fault a leaky tire to the car manufacturer. Plus this guy is the ONLY person in the world to say he had tranny noise. What other excuse do you have?

      People keep leaving comments about how bad Chrysler reliability is. I own a 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan and in 3 years not one problem. My sister bought a 2015 Honda CRV a couple month later and it has been in 5 times to the service department. My aunt has a 2005 Honda Odyssey and from day one is has had problems. I owned Toyotas for 26 years and yes I had problems. My last car was a 1998 Toyota Avalon and I had that car for 18 years. From the very first day it had electrical issues, but it came and went. Most of the time everything worked fine. I take very good care of my cars and so far I love my Dodge minivan. Before I bought one I asked people driving one if they liked the Dodge or had problems, most said they liked their Dodge and had very few issues. Do buy what you like. You never know if you will get a lemon or not.

      its just a blown up version of the chrysler 200 and believe me it will have issues. my 2016 had so many I just got out of it after only 35k miles. this van has the same dash, headlights, tail lights, motor and a lot of other items. the outside looks like they just made a 200 bigger and we all know where the 200 is now. the 200 was hated over its style inside and out. how is this any different? leave while you can and dont let FCA trick you into a trap van.

      Until people realize one thing, if you maintain a vehicle very well regardless of make, they will last a long time. If you don't, it is your own fault for not maintaining the vehicle meticulously.
      As an experienced Service Advisor who worked for Chrysler many years, I can speak from experience how well maintained Chryslers lasted an awfully long time with very high mileages and just wear and tear repairs such tires or brakes.
      Personally, I have owned many Chryslers and none of them gave me any major problems until later on in their life.
      Bottom line is to maintain ur vehicle well.
      Yes there are certain vehicles that are an exception to the rule where no matter how you maintain it, it still gives you repeated issues. However, in this day and age that is only 5 to 10% of the vehicles these days.

      You know what I absolutely love my 2017 Chrysler 200 LX, but after that car is paid for I am definitely eyeing the Pacifica. For me though certified preowned fully loaded model is what I'll be after. Chrysler has been doing good in producing fancy looking cars, they don't sell alot but thats okay i like the exclusivity feeling

      I like the interior of this van and it's nice, but I went with the Grand Caravan because of the issues cars have the first few years of a new generation. This one for example, has problems that I am happy I avoided for the sake of getting the "latest and greatest".

      It depends on your needs. I have a 4x4 3/4 Ton truck that is used as a tool and I would feel like an idiot if I needed to use a minivan that is inadequate for what I need the truck for. I also traded my 10 sec C6 Corvette with 20k miles in for a minivan for daily driving, because I don't care about the pussy-ass minivan. I own a minivan and I will be first to admit that they are pretty gay, but they serve their purpose.

      I think it makes you more of a man. It shows you care more about your wife and kids' comfort and space than your "Image". It also shows you're smart enough to know a minivan has more cubic feet and easier accessibility than an SUV.

      Kevin F they gave the Hybrid version “heavy duty” suspension vs the gas version, for what that’s worth. The battery pack is only a few hundred pounds and the overall van is lighter than the outgoing T&C despite being bigger through the use if aluminium etc so I don’t see it as being a problem. I have to think any automotive engineer worth their salt would know how to deal with a few extra hundred pounds on a vehicle.

      so after one year you have two issues . the sized up seats and squeaking suspension !!! and that is Chrysler in case you forget wait for it 4 more years and praise your self . with the on going non stop mechanic visit . other way protect your self with extended Warranty . that probably not going to cover everything that needs repairs . just do your self a favor folks. Don't buy it used. and if you can't help it. get extended warranty

      I know I know, haha! Chrysler and Alfa are technically related. But I'm speaking kind of how Alfa is to the Europeans. Something about them, and they are loved even if unreliable. That's what Chrysler is to America in my opinion. And yes totally, their cars since FCA aren't unreliable and are actually awesome vehicles. However the stereotypes of Chrysler equals garbage still remain.

      Adam Douglas LMAO - Chrysler is owned by FCA which also makes Alfa Romeo. They’ve gotten a lot better since the Italians took them over in 2010. Just look at how nice all of the interiors are on everything from the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 to the Chrysler Pacifica and Alfa Romeo Guilia. Sergio Marchionne has really turned Chrysler around into a respectable and most importantly profitable company again.

      If you make enough to cover the full $7,500 Federal Tax Credit it makes no sense not to get the Plug In Hybrid. It's cheaper than the Touring L & Touring L Plus & Limited. I would avoid the '17, lots of them being dumped and can be found for 20K with low miles. '18 has AA & ACP.

      I had the same clunking/ clicking noise. It has transpired to numerous repairs, lies, and jumping through hoops. At this point and with legitimate reason, the vehicle is being purchased back under lemon law. It’s a shame, otherwise outstanding vehicle, poor half-shafts. I will miss it, to a degree. On a side note, there have been over 1200 reported cases thus far and seem to be mainly affecting very top trim level from the 2017 batch.
