As a multi- Town & Country van owner since 2001, the 2018 Pacifica has solved every bug and issue I had with all the former Town & Country models. I ordered a Tech-Heavy Limited, and it's amazing how far these systems have evolved from just a few years ago. The power folding 3rd row seat is a dream when you need flat-floor storage, and the 2nd row "Stow & Go" seats drop down in about 10 seconds. NICE!
My van sits outdoors, and for years, my hands froze on cold mornings, even though my seats got warm. When I picked mine up, the Dealer had set my steering wheel heater to come on with every start in cold weather. (It knows what the outdoor temp is!)That alone was worth the price of admission.
The side mirrors actually large enough allow you to see what you need. My former T&C was awful when merging, and I was always running them in or out while driving.
The ride is fantastic, handling is superb, and my mileage started out 4MPG better than my old one, and is climbing as the engine breaks in. The tire pressure monitor shows each wheel's pressure, and will be a blessing as the tires age, and start to lose air. Unfortunately, my top of the line Limited was delivered with Kuhomo brand tires. They are the worst tires I've ever been on, and as I looked at reviews, 65% are "One Star" (Hate them) reviews. The traction is bad on dry streets, and dangerous on wet ones. Not a little bad, but spin the tires all the way home in the rain BAD. Since they're a CHEAP OEM unit, there's only 7/32 of tread from new, so I'll be replacing them with a name brand set quite soon.
That's my only beef, so I'll bite the bullet, and give an American company some business.
I ordered the "20 Speaker Harmon Kardon" audio package, and that's as good a factory system as I've heard, with a 760 watt amp for power.
The biggest difference I see is the Pacifica is DEAD quiet inside. Whatever the "Noise Cancellation" is, it DOES work, and extremely well.
I've had several comments on my Pacifica, and not the "Soccer Mom" insults, but people are shocked when the look inside, and see it is a mini-van. When I ask what you thought it was, no one is sure, as this model has lost the traditional mini-van stance.
All in all, I am thrilled with my Pacifica. I was even more impressed when I saw Consumer Reports say how much they liked it, and PANNED an import mini-van, when the only cars they EVER like are all off-shore imports.
