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.

      I bought a new Chrysler LeBaron in 1985. The engine was made by Mitsubishi. It was superb. When I finally sold the car it had 242,000 miles with never a bad moment with the engine. I also did my own maintenance and changed my engine oil as soon as it began to lose that honey look. And, I oversized the oil filter too.



      Now the bad part. The engine was perfect. The rest of the car was crap. All four of the power windows broke every 3 to 4 thousand miles. The throw out bearing fell out one day requiring an expensive left front wheel and trans pull to replace. And one day the trans shifting cable broke while I was driving with my family. In addition the front suspension was never good. The tires lasted only about 4 thousand miles before developing many flat spots resulting in terrible road noises. And no.... there was nothing the dealer was able to do about it except keep taking my money for needless alignments.



      Why did all this happen? The first three items were due to plastic parts being used in inappropriate ways. The power windows used toothed plastic tracks with a direct drive motor. When the motor started the torque cracked the plastic and the whole thing quit. I had to hold the windows closed with duct tape. The throw out bearing problem was because Chrysler used a German made clutch that had the wrong size center hole so a plastic shim was fitted to make it work. After a year of so the heat dried this out and the whole thing failed. The shifting cable broke because of a plastic clevis connector piece being used to connect the cable to the transmission. It broke and caused a lot of grief. I never did find out why the front end was so poorly designed. But during all this time Lee Iacocca was on TV doing Crysler spots. He kept saying "there's no substitute for quality". That man was either grossly ignorant or a first class liar. In the end I gave the car away to a poor person and bought a Mitsubishi. That was my Chrysler experience.



      Oh... One last complaint. One time I decided to replace the cooling water hose to the turbocharger. I removed the old one and went to the dealer service and ordered a new one. When I was given it I noticed the two steel tubes were connected to the center hose using cheap hose clamps and the metal tubes were well marked, obviously used. The original used compression fittings not cheap clamps. So here was an example of a franchise Chrysler service department trying to pass off refurbished parts for new. More crap.



      Since that time I've driven nothing but Japanese cars. In the eighties Chrysler was nothing but crap and they were dishonest to boot. Screw them all. The above story is true in all details.

      I am happy you like your car but I am not happy about Chrysler going belly up. I blame a once great car line on poor leadership which depended too much on tall talk and too little on substance. Since those times I am very cautious in my thoughts about any American car. I have good reason to not trust our auto industry.

      My Toyota is 16 years old last month. I bought it new. I do all the maintenance. The brakes, battery, appliance belt, spark plugs and all cooling system components are original. I'm on the second set of tires. The mileage is unchanged in all this time and is above expectations. I've never had a tire wear in a funny way. I've never had a front end alignment. It starts every time and runs perfectly always.

      I learned the hard way about American cars.

      As someone who probably exercises a minivan’s full potential more than your average person (5 kids, 2 being infant twins) I can tell you as a Honda Odyssey fan that the Pacifica does do what a van needs to do better than the competition.

      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.

Chrysler has been doing good in producing fancy looking cars, they don't sell alot but thats okay i like the exclusivity feeling

      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.

      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.

Don't buy it used. and if you can't help it. get extended warranty
