Pacifica 2018 8-seat configuration base model

bought 2018 Pacifica in January 2019. lowest base model they had. no power doors or power folding seats (manual so nothing to break later). was disappointed in navigation option (looked like it was included, but was not). we ended up using android auto and that works ok so not a big deal. love the power. 3.6 liter engine gets us onto freeway with 7 people and luggage very quickly and easily. auto engine off at stops is great gas saving feature along with 9 speed auto transmission. no issues with transmission after 5 years of usage. plenty of space for storage. 2018 model complaint. no auto headlight on/off. Really Chrysler? that should have been a no brainer default in this day and age. Purchase price was $40,000 for the base model. (I always like to know what people paid for the car :)


Perfect for our family

This vehicle is perfect for what my family needs right now. Both my kids (5 & 2) can climb into it unassisted (any mom knows, giving the kids any level of independence is great). Both rows of seats stow into the floor. We have the back row stowed to give us lots of cargo room for the stroller, diaper bag, scooter, karate bag, etc etc etc. Love the automatic doors on both sides... a nice upgrade from when I was a kid and it was a manual slider only on one side! Our one downside, but it's a big one... the media center in this car was a total after thought. It does not connect as expected to my iphone, and the AppleCarPlay seems to open a secondary window (it's not native to the car like the Ford Sync). So far, I have not gotten the phone to connect correctly via bluetooth - I have to plug in. The audio varies wildly - I have to turn the volume up almost all the way to hear someone on the phone, but when the radio kicks on, the whole car vibrates. I can't turn the audio off without turning off the ENTIRE screen. There is no native GPS to the car that I can tell, which isn't a huge downside since we have our phones, but was definitely surprising to see. All in all, this is the car we need right now as a young family with a lot of stuff to cart around. It has a lot of family friendly features that I 100% appreciate. I imagine that the newer models have better media integration with the iPhone.


Very comfortable and powerful

This is the perfect cross between a van and a luxury vehicle. Plenty of room inside for anything you want to do. The engine is so smooth and powerful, you have to watch for creeping on the speedometer. We have owned Chryslers for over 30yrs and this is one of their best.


Just what we were lookin for

This vehicle meets are family needs for seating , for storage, ease of access, comfort, and versatility. Appearance is very nice. Many up to date safety features.


Very Comfortable and priced well.

This vehicle has all the comfort we were looking for. It’s a smooth ride with 8 passenger seating. It met out needs and more. We have a special needs child that we can transport easily and comfortably.


Avis Car Sales

Excellent buy at a great price; well loaded and in excellent condition. I would buy this vehicle again as well as from Avis. Highly recommend


Love the room it has for the family

Lots of safety features that was a big reason for the purchase. Love the side doors but most of all the comfort. Also gas mileage


Perfect fit

This vehicle is a perfect match for my granddaughter and her husband expecting our 3rd great granddaughter.. 3 car seats were not option in the terrain.


Reliable and drives great.

My vehicle is very nice. It's an upgrade from my Chrysler Town and Country. I wanted to stick with this Pacifica because my T&C had no issues. I have only driven this new "used" Pacifica for a week. The ride is smooth, it's quiet. Our kids love the extra touch features and say it's more roomy. The only issue is the backup camera- it acts up occasionally but we are getting that repaired soon.


Should have bought a new, not preowned van

Drives nice once routers and brakes replaced, electrical messing up, keeps loosing blue tooth phone connection, start system warning light comes on intermittently. Was preowned as a lease. Cannot get rid of the smoke smell. If it was new, it would be a nice car.
