We bought our Pacifica used and it now has 183,000 miles on it and rising. It is an AWD model which makes it a perfect Wisconsin winter tamer. My wife commutes 60 miles a day and loves her car. We would buy another in a minute, if they still made them very well built and dependable.

Had my Pacifica for almost 5 years now. Great ride, very smooth, lots of room. One drawback though is gas mileage, I drive 64 round trip just for work each day and highway miles at that, typically have to fill up every 5 days and it has a 23 fuel tank, looking to buy something with better gas mileage, but thats only because I live so far away from my work, otherwise I would keep this car

We bought my car April 2004 with 1,500 miles on it and it was used as the dealers model. I live Florida and have driven it to Texas and Illinois multiple times and NY in August of 2013. It is red in color and has been hit twice once parked and once at a red light. Small amount of damage to my Pacifica lots of damage to the other cars. I have had both electric window motors in the front replace at least one time or more times and the air conditioner just this month Sept 2013. I fell safe and everyone that rides in it is comfortable even in the 3rd row seats. I have a DVD players which is wonderful for children. I dont see me selling it anytime in the future.

Drives great, looks great, comfortable. But the engine cradle and pto cradle are rotting out. Thousands of people have this problem. Chrysler knows of the problem and will only do something if the courts get involved. Research this car more. Not worth the money, there's a reason why this car with all the options it has is so cheap. If not for the rot and electrical problems. I'd buy one again In achicago heart beat.

I started looking for a car in Aug 2011. I always had Fords B test drove escapes & equinox. I didn't like either. Then I was @ the local mall & saw a Pacifica in the lot. I went over to the woman & asked to look in it & asked a few questions. I WAS IN LOVE WITH THE CAR.I did research on them & after 2 months decided to test drive a used 2004. When I saw the car in the lot it had my name on it. I test drove it & got a VERY good deal on it. The heated leather seats, navigation system, garage remote, 6 cd player & the dvd player (my grandsons LOVE my car) & the child prove lock on the door make this a very good choice for me. So far I've not had it in the garage for anything.

2004 after 3 years

After driving one of the first Pacificas out for 30K miles now, I am impressed. This very inexpensive ($300/mo) lease is as good as all the others that I tested for almost 1/2 the $'s. Pros: Spacious, nice ride, AWD works well, towing is easy, spacious, reliable, nice dealer, easy to buy. Spacious. oh, and there is a lot of room for adults, kids and runs to costco. The number of times we stoped in at costco after a run to home depot with both kids and stuffed this car full was impressive. Cons: Fairly hard to park, some fan belt noise, faulty tire pressure sensor, it's big, fairly poor gas (perhapse cause its big???) and heavy. I didn't get any options (except AWD and towing) and I only missed the remote rear hatch opener. So many times I had my arms full of baby stuff and had to put it down knowing the back would have opened if I spent $5/mo more. Was going to buy the Toureg and it was a bit more nimble, but they were asking more that $500 (600 with the options I didn't want) and the dealers were swamped. I looked at volvo and was unimpressed. My lease is up next month and I may just buy this one.... Nahh.. I love new too much. But for a medium big, non earth destroying (dont people who buy sequios feel any guilt?) car, I have been very happy. Another question, who buys these 2000 dvd players when you can buy each kid there own for $90 each, and then they can take it on the plane or to the diner. Good luck.

Purchased the 2004 Pacifica new. I have 150,000 miles on it and it is still running. Drove it in South Carolina and Florida so no corrosion issues. It is now a third car that I only use to carry stuff from Home depot an other and would sell it if I could find a buyer. I changed both front windows motors myself which is not too complicated after watching a video on youtube. Total cost 200$ from an on line auto part. The tire monitor system is showing need for maintenance but I don't want to try to fix it given nobody knows how and it would be a waste of money. It is underpowered with the 3.5 liter and the fuel economy is 17 mpg at best. There is a noise issue at time with the front suspension...which I don't care for. The control module for the A/C fan is an issue because of location. Had to change it twice but it is easy to access and cost about 70$ at auto part store. Overall I think I was lucky to get one that ran for 150,000 miles without major issues but reading all the reviews about potential issues, and the value when you try to sell it I would not but it again.

I fell in love with this car, it has the room of a mini van but handles like a SUV. I have had one problem after another with this car, first problem gas line ruptures while we were out of town, dealership couldn't get another fuel line right away so we were stranded 3 extra days. next problem is an electrical fire, it was fixed under warranty but since then electrical problems have started happening such as cruise control and the pedal adjustment going out. next the window regulator in both driver and passenger door has gone out, now I have another electrical problem that no one can identify, tried replacing battery and that didn't work. Im done with this car, I will never buy another Chrysler!
