2008 Pacifica Limited is my dream car!

Just bought a used 2008 Pacifica Limited with all the bells and whistles. The previous owner hadn't ever opened up the box with the wireless headphones and remote for the DVD player. I'm 6-4 and the power seat, adjustable pedal position. and position memory is great, since my wife is 5-4. It keeps me from caring so much if she drives. Yes, there are probably more modern crossover's out there, but for the money, we got the car we wanted for our long distance driving. Road noise is minimal...had to have that! Execpt a little better gas mileage would have been nice, I couldn't be more pleased...

Typical old Chrysler management decision not to make this car anymore. They could be as successful with the Pacifica (inspired by Mercedes) as Chrysler was with the mini-vans. My first Pacifica was totaled by others but saved me; my current car is a Pacifica again.

Perfect design for my family from space to features. at 85000 transmission went but was covered by warrentee. Starting to show wear - outside mirrors vibrate and would need to be fixed to address the issue. Great mileage on hi-way especailly in teh summer. Really enjoy it except taht it is showing its age in miles.

I own 2007 Pacifica Limited AWD purchased used from highly reputable dealer with 38,000 miles Nov 2009. I now have 63,500 miles and to say I am very impressed with this vehicle is an understatement. Contrary to your "expert" reviews, after installing premium Yokohama Prada SpecX tires, this vehicle corners much flatter than your reviews state, is extremely stable at any speed up to the limited 130MPH. I have extra wheels fitted with Firestone Winterforce winter tires and have traveled in weather even local emergency vehicles havetrouble handling. Fantastic vehicle with only one minor shortcoming - milage is maximum 25MPH at speed limit speeds.

Good Car for the Money

This is a great family car. We have the leather seats, which makes it classy enough to lug clients around in, but durable enough to haul the dogs around. It's roomy and comfortable, and the back seats go up and down easily for transitioning between seating and cargo. It's a little sluggish, but once it's up to speed, it sails along nicely. Gas mileage averages about 20 mpg, and I drive mostly highway. 30 miles after I fill up, the gas gauge is down an 1/8 of a tank plus, which is a little disheartening when gas is $4.00 per gallon. Beware - tires are expensive, somewhere around $250-$275 each. Big bucks when you need 4! Also, the third row seating is a little tight, and there is virtually no room for luggage when they are up, so don't plan on taking much luggage if you have 5 or 6 people. All in all, though, I love this vehicle.

beautiful car!

by from Bethlehem, pa on May 18, 2017

i think the only downside i can think of is the gas milage isnt that great, but the trade off for us was to have a larger, more comfortable vehicle to travel in since we do alot of road trips.

Bought it used from reputable dealer. After a year with regular maintenance, much started to go - check engine light, starter, belt, and eventually a tie rod. Normal wear and tear, parked in a garage, couple of long-distance trips. Mechanic who did lots of work on it eventually (unaffiliated with CHrysler or dealer - your standard around the block mechanic with 50 years of honest experience) said he wished I would have asked him first - he would have told me no to that model for that year due to expensive issues. Lesson learned. It ran it's course -it eventually went to the auction graveyard.
