2005 Chrysler Pacifica
There are 18 user reviews for the Touring AWD trim shown below
- Very spacious, Sits up higher than a car, great looks, I feel VERY safe during the winter!
- AWD takes getting used to, gas mileage could be better, discontinued
Purchased As Used
I just purchased a used 2005 Pacifica Touring with low miles, after saying goodbye to my beloved Chrysler T&C. I didn't think I would want anything other than another T&C, but once I drove this car, I was hooked! It did take me a bit to get used to the AWD, but it was really a very minor thing. So far I am extremely happy with the purchase and my kids want to drive for no reason now because they love it! My favorite part about this vehicle is the option to have more "people" space, or more "cargo" space. I was concerned that I wouldn't have as much space in this car as I did in my van, but if I put the seats down flat, I have plenty for what I need! =) I haven't yet run into a situation where I didn't have enough room.
The gas mileage could be a bit better, but its no worse than if I had bought a van.
I am sad to see this car go! I hope Chrysler brings it back so I can buy another one when this one is done!...read morehide

- dvd system
- tranny, suspension, electrical problems since the day I bought this car!!!
I have had the transmission ans frontend suspension replaced three times each as well as an overhaul of the electrical sytem.And most recently, after replacing the brakes...brake failure!!! Chrysler refuses to stand behind their product and are not willing to admit this car is a lemon. These cars are not built for their weight and everyone that I speak to that has one has the same exact problems...living in Manhattan I run into quite a few of these car owners in garages.
Do yourself a favor and stay away from this model car!!!!!!!!!!!!...read morehide

- The vehicle is attractive and comfortable. Cargo area is roomy.
- does not get the gas mileage chrysler reports.
I purchased my pre-owned 2005 Pacifica Touring AWD with leather (19,500 miles) November 16, 2005. I had it four days when I noticed a weird noise in the left front. It went into the shop for nearly 3 weeks for replacement of front left axle and transfer case. It runs ok now, but the gas mileage I'm getting in town is 14 to 15 mpg. I havent had it on a road trip yet, but I dont expect to get 22 mpg as stated in advertising. The Nissan dealer I purchased it from ordered an owners manual for me. You would think the previous owner would have left the manual with the car. The jury is still out on the cars performance....read morehide

- It Starts ,,,,,,
- It Staris,,,,when it should just quit and wait for a tow truck.....
This car should be on the Lemon Law poster !!!Dealer has no clue on how to fix....Say away, unless your dealership serves free Starbucks and have Toyotas as loaner cars...5 trips to service in 7 months

- Loaded with Luxury!!! I LOVE THIS CAR
- Blind spots... but you get used to it - mirrors work well
I have never loved a car before.... BUT we love this car. The Pacifica has changed raod travel for us! Excellent with kids - between the Nav. System and DVD system.... traveling with or without kids has never been more relaxing.
This car is full of bells and whistle and has never let us down. Love the safety aspects, heated seats, nav system, power lift gift, etc.... there so much to rave about.
I though that it would be nice if the wign mirrors had a heating elements for those cold snowy - or worse ice days.
Way to go Chrysler - you have a fan here! We would definitely buy another....read morehide

- looks nice
- spends more time in the shop than on the road
37K miles on the car, and no end in sight to the problems. transmission (twice), display cluster, navigation system, starter switch, dare i go on? the dealers service techs have no clue. you would think that as often as the thing goes in for warranty repairs, they would look it over.....they fix a problem - hand it back saying it is ok and find they have created a new problem. i have purchased Chrysler my whole life and unfortunately will never buy another one....read morehide

- Vere luxurious... nice addons
- Trunk is TOO small!
I rented this car today, when my 2001 Toyota Sienna needed repairs, and was in the shop. I immediately fell in with the Pacifica, so my husband and I plan to buy it in he near future.

- Very nice looking car, very quiet at highway speeds (80)
- Looks roomier than it really is (front door is 12" wide),
We bought it for my wife and we really like it. I'm still afraid of the mechanical problems in the futer (Chrysler syndrom) although so far no problem after 4000 miles.

- lOADED AND ROOMY
THE PACIFICA WAS MADE FOR ME. MY FAMILY LOVES IT. WE HAVE ROOM, WITH ALL THE EXTRAS. IT HANDELS BETTER THAN A LEXUS AND GETS GREAT GAS MILAGE. THIS IS THE BEST FOR THE BUCK. VERY AFFORDABLE. A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO CHRYSLER.

- Looks good and at first feels like luxury but them...

I bought a used Pacifica with only 10,508 miles on it and ran fine the first 900 miles. Then started to staul and give all sorts of proplems. Transmission would lock up and I would need to pull over and restart the thing to reset the tranny. Almost got into an accident casue of this as I was only able to drive about 35 mph on a highway with the average speed was 75 mph. The tranny sounded as if was getting ready to blow up(very loud).
I took it to the nissan dealer I bought it from which then had to take it to the Chrysler dealer for inspection. I was very upset. The dealer then shared with me that they had taken the car from one of their other dealers across town and that the car was a trade in. At only 10,500 miles, I began to wonder why this was? 2 days passed and I got a call from the GM at the dealer. He said that the Chrysler people did not have a clue as to what was wrong with the car and after driving my car for 500 miles, they were able to retrieve several failure codes. They attempted different solutions but the problems would re-occur. I had told the dealer that I would not take the car back until they would guarantee that the problem would not happen again. After a week, the Chrysler Dealer said they thought the problem was fixed. What do you mean you think the problem is fixed. It either is or it isn't. Why are you having problems fixing your own brand of car? Of course they did not want to answer that.
I was given the car back and only after 3 days did I start to have problems again. I decided I would not stand for this any longer. I drove the car to the dealer on a busy Saturday and Demanded that they take this Lemon of a car back. Every customer in the showroom heard and some even left. The General manager came over and assured me he would help me. He did this in front of all customers in an attemot to save face. After about 20 minutes, they offered to take the car back if I agreed to exchange the car for another car on the lot. They even offered to give me an extedned warranty for free for the trouble. Since the problem was with Chrysler not being able to fix their own car, I decided to get antoher non Chrysler vehicle and since the dealer wa a Nissan dealer, I went with a used Pathfinder. I have had this nissan now for a month and I could not have made a better chioce. Stay away from Chrysler. THEY STINK....read morehide
