- Front and Back Bucket seats, Stereo sounds good.
- My back tail gate doesn't automatically open w/ push button on keys.???
Has it all. Love it.Easy to drive comfortable. Goes over the Sierra in snow storms, no problem. Love the back bucket seats. So do my passengers. Fits everything I need to carry. Smooth.

- Styling, ride, interior fit and trim, seat comfort, utility
- so-so mileage
I don't own this vehicle--it is a company car, however if I needed to purchase one, I would seriously consider the Pacifica. It has the interior feel of a much more expensive car. The seats are very comfortable and easy to adjust, and the lumbar support couldn't be better. The ride is fantastic--maybe a little cushy if you prefer a sports suspension, but still capable. After 53,000 miles, this SUV still feels special. My mother-in-law rode in mine and now she owns one and loves it. The only problem has been a wiring issue that was causing the left headlight to work sporadically, which was covered by Chrysler. Get the MPGs up a little and the Pacifica would be near perfect....read morehide

Driving very comfortable and Unique design inside, I like it in general. However, the engine look like little noise out side but not sure.

- Nice Design, has good power w/V6., roomy once inside, smooth ride
- low mileage., entering vehicle difficult, can't ride 50 mph w/windows down
Let's start with trying to get into it - if you are small great but for average size people or above it is difficult.
Backing the vehicle up is also difficult due to the design of the back window and it's contour look. Parallel parking difficult as a result. The contour also accounts for the "jet engine" noise you will experience if you are cruising at 40 above and have the windows down. It is loud enough to hurt the eardrums.
The contour of the windows and window trim (can't leave windows partially down when it rains unless u want to take a bath while driving!) have some problems. The inside trim does not want to fit and the back windows have pins while the front ones seem to be press on.
Why anyone would want the 5th seat is beyond me but it would help the family dog so long as you don't need to try and get to it. The power control device under the driver's side sits on the floor underneath the drivers side which is pretty dumb from a design standpoint.
The back bumper does need a bumper guard on it otherwise plan on having alot of scratches.
Gas Mileage for a 6 seems alittle below average.... but nonetheless, at 12k miles we have had no significant operational problems with the vehicle but I would suggest the 100k warranty so you can have piece of mind. It is very room inside and has a great ride.
Speaking of rides, the std tires from goodrich - Traction T/A Spec on this vehicle are terrible. They don't do well in rain and overall handling so plan on changing them out very early....read morehide

- Style, driving and comfort are the best atributes of this vehicle
- rear and side vision
Just an update. I have now owned a Limited 2005 pacifica model for approximately 6 months. Not one problem with the exception of 2 sensors needing replacement on the ABS. I just LOVE this SUV. My model came with everything except the sirius radio which I added. The 19" rims on this vehicle only can be fitted with a spicific Michelin tire which does not come cheap at almost $300 a piece. Michelin also does not make an all-weather or snow tire for this rim. I am a style oriented person. I do not have kids, just a wife, but I was so intrigued with the style that I could not resist this so called "family vehicle". I did install a "bra" on the front of the vehicle because the front grill takes a lot of bugs, etc. which gave it a real sporty look. It does take a while to get the feel of the limited rear vision, but in no way does this diminish the extrodinary nature of the vehicle....read morehide

tire indicator says low tire, doesn't say which one, then says 2 low then back to 1 low on same trip
Heat and air conditioner take a long time to switch over to other temp. between them

- Great long distance trip vehicle, solid feel on the road, AWD was fantastic in winter conditions.
- Fuel economy isn't the greatest. Passenger side water leak, heavy vehicle
I like this vehicle. We've had some issues with it such as:alternator squeal which led to it's replacement after a few visits to the dealer. The front and rear passenger side floor is wet after a rain has recently developed. The AWD traction was great in the snow. It was better than my 4WD Blazer. Many long distance trips with the family from Ontario to Florida have been a very enjoyable drive. We've racked many miles on this car and we are very happy with it. Wish I could say the same about the dealership that finally replaced the alternator....read morehide

- smooth ride, very comfortable
- 2nd gear a little flat, hopes mpg gets a little better
My wife and I rented a pacificia on a business trip in Feb and loved it.I didnt realize until the 3rd day it was AWD the drive train is that smooth. I've owned nothing but full sized pick up trucks & SUVs since 1981 and now that i've passed 50 (and have back problems) I wanted something a little more car like. rides as good as the Lexuses, Buicks and Volvos my friends' drive. Still have good veiw of road, Which I got used to when I was firefighter/paramedic driving oversized vehicles. I traded in my 6 year old Explorer with a change in my insurance of only a few dollars a year so that says something about its safety ratings....read morehide
